Excellent and Effective Pilates – I have been a client at Bridge Pilates for over 2 years and my weekly session is always one of the highlights of the week. There is a great variety of instructors each with a unique body of knowledge, experience, and generosity of spirit. The specificity and intelligence of the instructors has been very helpful in recognizing movement habits and finding great balance, strength, and consistency of movement. The studio atmosphere is friendly, relaxed, and totally enjoyable. Bottom Line: a GREAT studio committed to keeping each individual strong!! Nowhere else I would rather do pilates!
Spectacular Studio! – I have been a client at Bridge Pilates since the studio first opened. Blossom Crawford is a shining star in the pilates world and offers specialized workouts for each of her clients. I have worked with many of the other instructors as well and they are handpicked professionals with a great deal of knowledge and experience.
The studio itself is intimate and inviting. There are never more than 2 clients at a time, so the atmosphere is never crowded or frenetic. The machines themselves are gorgeous and the entire space is fresh and airy.
I highly recommend Bridge Pilates, you will not find a better studio in the entire city.
Best pilates studio ever! – I have been a regular client there for over 3 years and have seen dramatic improvements in my strength and flexibility. The teachers are so great at determining my weaknesses and helping me hone in on areas I need to work on. I’m hooked!
Best pilates on either side of the bridge! – Bridge Pilates is wonderful. Very personalized service and excellent choice of instructors. All are friendly, personable, informative, well-trained and make the workout fly by. I started pilates after the birth of my first child, and a few months later, my stomach was back to its pre-pregnancy look (and maybe a little better!). I am a believer!
Supercalifragilistic – I had always thought Pilates was one of those goopy, New Age-y exercise programs. Then again, the buffest woman I ever dated ran a Pilates studio. So, after falling off the fitness wagon, I decided to try Pilates as a way to "get in shape to get in shape." First, I learned I was wrong about Pilates: it is a rigorous discipline that places a premium on form, posture, core strength and body awareness. Fran Darnell at Bridge Pilates is a gem. Her gentle and cheerful bedside manner masks a tough as nails instructor. She works with you patiently until you get a movement series down properly, all the while giving you a hard and exhilarating workout. Fran explains the purpose of each exercise and why even a slight shift in posture affects which joints and muscles come into play (she could probably teach a course in Anatomy). She offers endless encouragement, and teaches you to listen to your body so that you can unlearn the bad habits that lead to back aches and muscle pulls,
The setting at Bridge Piltates is great: intimate and quiet, so you don't feel like you're working out on the stage at Carnegie Hall. The studio is conventiently located even if you don't live in Brooklyn (it's a block from an F train stop; a five-minute walk from an A train stop), and the instruction fees are very reasonable, especially when compared to those at other, larger places. Go.
Editorial Review – Pilates studio has a full line of equipment and even some vintage equipment built by Joseph Pilates himself.
Terrific Find! – This studio is exactly what DUMBO needed! I was looking for something to break up the standard running and weight training and yoga was not doing it for me, pilates is the perfect answer. Blossom is an amazing instructor. She has the ability to develop a personalized work out that is relaxing and fun and actually yields results! I feel much leaner. The machines are terrific, I had never used them before. I have also participated in her mat classes both with her instructing and with another instructor and was really pleased. I highly recommend Bridge Pilates. The building is also very cool with a terrific coffee shop.
Brooklyn's Best – Bridge Pilates is a gem. Nestled in a converted warehouse in DUMBO, this bright and intimate studio offers both individual and mat classes. The instructors are brilliant and create personal exercise series for students that really offer RESULTS!
Amazing results! – I am SO glad I found Bridge Pilates! I just moved to Brooklyn and wanted to change my workout of weights and cardio......not happy with the results. I have seen more results in my body in 4 weeks than I had in years of weight classes. Definitely a leaner me with tighter abs and my thighs are toned but not as bulky as before .....I love this place! I go twice a week to practice with Blossom who owns the studio.......she is one of the best, well known in the pilates industry, and she really tailors the practice to me. She knows what I want to work on and she has this amazing way of challenging me each time, which I love. So, couldn't be happier with the studio, it has good energy there and I hear that the other teachers are great too with their own following of devoted students. I would definitely recommend it!!!!!!!
