I enjoyed my pilates day – I've always wanted to try Pilates but just never made any effort to seek out a great place and sign up. Enter Groupon, my godsend.
After snatching a kick-ass groupon deal (12 mat classes/$65) my co-worker and i ventured over here and are so glad we did. The classes are not usually packed and the instructors are very nice and helpful. I have never taken a pilates class and get disoriented easily (read clumsy). The instructors always came by to help without singling me out as the class idiot. And in the words of my co-worker Sara, this place was not "super-bourgie"
I truly enjoyed my pilates days here, especially when i felt sore afterwards (because how else would you know you're burning fat). Though my groupon deal is over, i'll probably come back and purchase a monthly pass and eventually venture into those equipment classes. And in addition to large classes they also have private instruction available as well.
I first came to Body Endeavors about a year ago. I started taking Pilates Mat classes then eventually Private lessons. I love the attention that the trainers give to you. It is so nice that they offer massage here as well, since it is such a treat after you work out!
I have had massages from both therapists, Kelly and Joanna, and they are AMAZING!!!
They started offering all kinds of new services this past year like personal training and Metabolic Testing. I definitely see a change in my body, and will be a client here for life! :)
Also, the space is really beautiful and the whole staff is friendly and inviting!! Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Prices you can't beat – The prices are the lowest in the city!!!!
Some of the best training in the city – Great space and fantastic instructors. I have taken private lessons here from both the apprentice trainers and the fully-qualified trainers.
If you buy a package of private lessons, you can receive a discount. They have mat classes, massage therapy, and a small cardio room.
The instructors work with you on very classical pilates (not Windsor, Stott, etc). This is very much in the style of Joseph Pilates. I think it is some of the best training in the city.
Parking is easy and they offer water and tea. Definitely try out a class or session here.
Space is beautiful – Space is beautiful, very open, great location on Halsted, parking isn't too bad around there...good hours.
Everyone there is nice, friendly and patient – I've always lacked grace, but I've always been athletic. I finally decided to try and get my grace in check and with a little boost from Groupon, I was pushed over the edge into trying pilates.
A complete novice, I walked in to Body Endeavors truly unsure of what to expect.
My first class was completely packed (all 16 mats were full) which made me nervous.
After 45 minutes of my very first mat class I confirmed that I am indeed, not that coordinated with my body, but that I really enjoyed pilates and think if I stick with it, it will really help me gain awareness and strength throughout my body.
I've had 4 instructors so far, all offering similar exercises but with some uniqueness to each.
Dare I say I'm getting better?
I love that Body Endeavors has so many different instructors and class times, 7 days a week. I also like that you can sign up for classes online. There are a variety of classes offered... mat classes, magic ring classes, tower classes, individual sessions. I think Body Endeavors has a lot to offer.
So far everyone I've met that works there has been very nice, friendly and patient.
I'm excited for my next class.
Small but comfortable – Their facilities are small, but comfortable, and they are well-equipped with all the Pilates machines & mats, etc. that one could want. My instructor Anna is great--she pushes me just enough. Sometimes she gives the instruction rather quickly, and it takes my brain a second to register what the next exercise is, but I'm getting better!
Convenient and Pain free – The owner went out of her way to help make this first experience a breeze. For a first-timer like me, she made getting started a very convenient, pain-free process.
I'm telling you, if you're looking for a healthy home away from home- this is the place to be. Body Endeavors ROCKS!
