About Strong Tower Pilates Studio
Many of the instructors at Strong Tower Pilates Studio can personally attest to the physical benefits of Pilates. Two teachers credit the program with relieving their chronic back pains, and owner Kelly Letalien claims the exercise form helped her cope and stay in shape throughout her pregnancy and subsequent recovery. As a registered nurse and rehabilitative specialist, Letalien has also tutored Pilates clients with scoliosis, fibromyalgia, and hip replacements, adjusting her lessons to accommodate, and ultimately help diminish, each guest's condition.
The staff welcomes beginners and accomplished athletes alike to their private and small-group sessions, where they work aboard mats or apparatuses, such as the Reformer, Wunda Chair, and Ladder Barrel. During certain stretches, they distribute props, including foam rollers and wobble disks, which help clients more easily perform moves and prepare for when evolution finally bestows the human race with wheels. By limiting their largest classes to a maximum of eight students, they can modify their workouts according to each visitor's fitness level and give them more focused attention. Between meetings, they strive to cultivate both a clean and welcoming studio atmosphere, scrubbing the equipment with a tea-tree-oil solution and warming tummies with complimentary coffee, tea, or cider.
