I fell in love with the Pilates reformer at Lift Pilates. The workouts are dynamic, flowing, fun, and educational. Each instructor has their own style, so you’re always learning different exercises. Lift Pilates has been a big part of my life through some major milestones. In the last few years I have attended regular classes in preparation for my wedding, throughout my pregnancy, and for postnatal rehab.

Laura Cotler got me toned for my wedding (not to mention fitting into my wedding dress). After my round of private classes with Laura, I felt strong, and my posture and Pilates form improved dramatically. I felt good and healthy.

The staff at Lift Pilates was also supportive and helpful through my pregnancy. The reformer allowed me to stay in shape, keep moving, and fight morning sickness. Attending classes also provided a community where I met several other supportive moms.

After I had my son, I attended Greta’s postnatal pelvic floor course, which was amazing. I tell every new mom about this, because it is so informative. I learned so many things about pregnancy and what is going on in a woman’s body throughout the many stages, and, therefore, how to heal properly after pregnancy and labor.

To add to it all, I originally came to Laura years ago with a bad knee condition. I thought I’d have knee replacements by the time I was 40. Laura showed me the necessary workouts that activated the muscles supporting my knees. I am now able to run again, when there was a time that I could barely walk, so I am very grateful for this.
