I won 3 private pilates sessions for this establishment at a charity event and fundraiser. (Already the fact that this company donated their services to help raise money and awareness of under privileged children and their education won a point in my book.) It was heard at some point that pilates was one of the newest trends among those seeking a healthy body. I will say as a first time pilates practitioner the word trendy does not come to mind. This form of exercise is concise, powerful and extremely beneficial to your physical awareness. I am at a moderate level of fitness, running a few times a week or free weights at home.
When I worked with one of the instructors here I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge she had of the body. Each movement she examined and assisted. Yet her expectations of the work on my end were apparent and I found that I desired achieving each challenge she presented.
My review of Uptown Pilates overall is it is worth the money and time. If you are someone who works out and hit a plateau, you need a few private sessions to understand where you can improve your form. When I went back home to my regular workouts I can’t tell you how much the sessions helped me pull in my core and become a fierce runner.
There are quite a few instructors here each had a different style and I worked with 2 different ones. The receptionists are also very good at pairing clients with instructors. If you are thinking of trying pilates or need to find your new spot I am confident you will be happy here. All levels are truly accommodated.
Loving Uptown Pilates - mixing it up with both group and private pilates lessons- they stick to classical and get you working REALLY deeply! I have a dance background and for a while I've been feeling some pain in my hips. Pilates as totally help with my injury - Amazing!!
I recently ventured to Uptown Pilates for the first time , I have been doing Pilates for years and was looking for a new studio that is more convenient to my home. I am always hesitant to try new studios but after seeing that they have won best of Citysearch something like 4 years in a row I figured it was worth a shot. From the beginning the experience was different than any other studio. Not only was the front desk so sweet they were super knowledgeable about Pilates and about their instructors. They asked me about my injuries and what my goals were with Pilates while I was booking my first session. At first I was annoyed that the call was taking longer than expected since I was answering these questions but the manager was so sweet is was impossible to be too annoyed. Then when I came in for my first session I realized why she had asked me these questions, my instructor had been chosen for me based off of my history and who she thought I would connect with best and they already knew about all of my injuries and goals and had prepared accordingly! It made my experience feel truly personalized to ME and made me feel so special! All in all an amazing experience!
I've been consistently impressed with Uptown! They have such a clean, inviting studio and phenomenal instructors who really know how to make you work! I've been coming to mat and tower classes, but I take privates once in a while, too, just to keep in check with my posture. Couldn't think of a friendlier or better place to practice Pilates in NYC. They also have a studio in Sag Harbor so I can continue my practice when I head to the Hamptons this summer!
Uptown Pilates makes Pilates fun! – My foremost reaction on encountering the studio's serene, light and airy ambience for the first time was;' how does one perspire here'? And then; 'I would be embarrassed to perspire here'. That was almost two years ago. Since then, the excelllent, excellent people at Uptown Pilates have turned
a sedentary, flighty person like myself into someone who will come to exercise at least twice a week. I am a zealous convert to both, pilates as an exercise regimen, and Uptown Pilates as the best venue; with its group of dedicated, professional and charming instructors. And yes one does perspire; profusely. But its fun.
Healthy and Happy! – Fitness should be personal and Uptown sincerely focuses on your personal well-being and goals. Uptown offers a comfortable space, warm staff, and a better knowledge of your body that you can carry over into other aspects of your active life!
Great Pilates Studio! – Best Pilates Studio I have been to! Amazing classes, amazing instructors and beautiful space! Love!
Pilates is Amazing! – I recently discovered how amazing pilates is! I have horrible posture and really tight pecs and pilates is the first thing that I have found that has really opened up my chest and my shoulders and improved my posture! On top of finding this great new workout I found a great place to do it at Uptown Pilates! The instructors are so patient and so knowledgeable , will definitely be coming here for a long time! : )
Love Uptown Pilates!!! – I got a gift certificate for classes at Uptown Pilates from a friend of mine for my birthday a couple weeks ago. I was a little skeptical at first because I hadn't yet found a pilates studio in the city that I really liked but I should have trusted my friend, she does always have great taste!! This place is great!!! The studio is beautiful and comfortable and the instructors are so knowledgeable and really give you a workout! I hightly recommend Uptown Pilates to anyone looking for a great workout!
