Who Do I Help?


Pilates is for Everyone


Athletes come to Pilates to improve performance, a better golf swing, stronger back hand, more efficient swim stroke. Professional & Elite athletes find Pilates gives them the edge they need to be a champion.


Dancers come to Pilates for better performance. They like the restorative component the Pilates work offers. Pilates helps them stay strong, prevent injury, and if they come to Pilates to rehab from an injury they often stay with Pilates as they realize they will have a longer, more lucrative carrier.


Back Pain is a major reason people come to Pilates. As the client develops more core strength they find they sit, stand and move better. Pilates leads to a pain free life.


Rehabilitation from an injury or surgery Clients prefer Pilates as they get a whole body workout. At The Center Studio we consult with our clients Physicians and Physical Therapist to be sure we put together the most beneficial program.


Prevention: People who do Pilates want to live a long and healthy life. By addressing core strength early in life they are less likely to be injured in the later years.
