Pilates makes a lot of promises: strong, lean muscles without unnecessary bulk, improved posture, and even relief from chronic pain. With proper practice and instruction, Pilates can deliver these results via mat-based workouts. Joseph Pilates originated the workout regimen, and it draws from more than 400 exercises adaptable to both experience level and existing injuries.

A Chat with Power Pilates at Grassroots Community Space
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Power Pilates will empower you to discover your inner strength, transform mind and body, increase stamina, improve your health, and achieve a new and exciting physical well-being.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Positive reinforcement is essential in this class as well as assisting students via vocal and tactile cues, which help encourage students throughout class and also bring them to a better understanding of each exercise. As students progress, they see results. Results equal physical and mental rewards.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Professional dancing and training has led me to Pilates, and I became enthralled by how much it helped me with my abdominal or "powerhouse" stabilization. I saw results fast and also enjoyed the workout as a whole. I knew I wanted to share this with people, so I went to school and got certified.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing a student's face when they accomplish a goal in class or when they come back and see how much they progressed from the last class. Continual practice is key, and when you view your goals as never-ending, the possibilities are endless when in Pilates classes. Movement heals!
