Along with owner Patrea?a two-time Ms. Fitness USA national finalist who holds a degree in exercise science?the instructors at 15 to Fit Pilates, Barre & Fitness make their members a promise: if they follow their program for 12 weeks, they will see serious results or they will get their money back. To that end, the instructors form positive relationships that encourage each student to stay committed as they climb the learning curve of practicing Pilates equipment and barre workouts. They coach everyone from first-time Pilates students to professional athletes during one-on-one Pilates sessions, duet sessions, and group classes on Allegro2 Balanced Body reformers. In addition to Pilates-focused sessions, the instructors help lengthen and strengthen muscles during yoga and ballet barre classes.
Patrea and her team also offer niche services such as Pilates for golfers, chair Pilates for seniors, and ghost Pilates for poltergeists. On Sunday and Tuesday, massage therapist Heather Chaney pops in to put her decade of muscle-kneading experience to work, offering massages that include a unique variety performed on the Pilates barrel.
