Andrew – Sleep Sales Consultant

Just wanted to tell you and the staff that Pilates Plus is awesome! I was very much in doubt on my first visit, but was extremely surprised. Normally, my idea of a workout is a hike, bike, or rock climb. Living in downtown Los Angels those options are harder to get to at times. My wife desperately wanted to start working out to get in shape for the summer, and found Pilates Plus. She convinced me reluctantly that I needed to join her for the first class to support her. That first class was all it took, I was hooked! It was one of the more intense workouts that I have had in a long time. The low impact, form focus approach was perfect to improve my posture and target the weak areas that are usually ignored. The resistance of 4 or 5 repetitions on one exercise was surprising strenuous. I walked out the first class feeling energized, taller, and feeling like I was worked. It has been great attending ever since. Even when I feel stronger and the exercise is getting easier, one of the trainers adds a little change or points out a flaw in my form it becomes just as challenging. Keep up the great classes and tell everyone they should go to Pilates Plus.

I grew up dancing and when I stopped 5 years ago, the weight came on.  Since then, I’ve tried working out at the gym, yoga, going to bootcamps, but I couldn’t stick with any of it.  When I began going to PPDTLA I instantly loved it, and had to get a membership ASAP.  I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with all instructors, who all push in gentle but productive ways. Not only are the instructors amazing, but I feel stronger each week, feel healthier and am trimming down.  Because of all this, I know I’m going to stick it out with PPDTLA!

Janey – Physical Therapist

I absolutely hate going to the gym to work out.  But I have been interested in Pilates and found PPDLTA website.  I decided to take a free class and dragged my unwilling husband to go with me.  One class and I was hooked.  To my surprise, so was my husband.  We both signed up the next day and have been going for the past few months.  It’s expensive but if you sign up for the monthiy unlimited, it’s not too bad.  Also got a deal on the core package at the end of the year so we get extra savings.

We love it.  It is a great workout.  After 50 minutes, you’re sweating and shaky and feeling great.   It focus on core strength, flexibility and posture.

We go 3 times a week because that is all we can handle.  I’m too sore to do more.  It’s only been a few months but my hubby now has his 6 pack back.  I’m still working on mine but I have more energy and I feel stronger.  Both our posture seems to change.  I know I am standing up taller.

All the instructors, I’ve worked with are great.  They will work you and all with a super sweet smile.  Try it!  Won’t be disappointed.

I feel great and I’m so happy I found this place that will whip me back into shape. Yay!
