Best Pilates Studio in Soho! – I've been going to Grasshopper Pilates for about 5 months now and couldn't love it more. Not only is the studio very comfortable,clean, and buzzing with good energy - but Gina is the best teacher ever! She knows how to push you without over doing it. I'm definitely a devotee.
Would I lie? – As someone who has tried everything and quickly gotten bored, completely lost interest, been offended, turned off or worked well beyond my skill level, I have to say Gina's operation at Grasshopper is utterly unparalleled. I have been a devoted disciple for more than a year, have stayed completely engaged and steadily challenged and can say with utter honesty that Gina and Grasshopper have changed my life forever. I am in love with both the studio itself and pilates and would follow Gina and her capable instructors anywhere. The biggest truth of all comes in the transformation of my body and skill level, not to mention my spirit and outlook on regular exercise. I truly cannot recommend Grasshopper enough. Do yourself a favor, if you are looking for the perfect Pilates studio, look no further, call Gina immediately. You won't be sorry.
Best Pilates Studio I've been to! – The instructors are knowledgeable and patient. The facilities are always clean and well maintained. I can't recommend Grasshopper highly enough!
Perfect Pilates Studio – This is a review on the Grasshopper silk screened T-shirts, which are TOO great and need to be discussed!! I'm on the upper upper west side, and they alone are enough to get me down there to earn one. The studio is clean and totally zen, a constant inspiration to just keep on holding and toning! And everyone is so nice - instructors and clients. Go there.
The BEST Pilates Studio – Grasshopper Pilates is the BEST pilates studio...and I have been to many.
The studio is beautiful and welcoming and the atmosphere is extremely friendly. As soon as I walked in the owner, Gina Papalia, greeted me with a huge smile and gave me a tour. From my first session the entire staff made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I have such a great relationship with my teacher - she knows exactly how to get me motivated and gives me an awesome workout.
If you're looking for a pilates studio with a focus on one on one training, totally knowledgeable and friendly staff and awesome vibe - Grasshopper Pilates is your place! I will never go to another pilates studio again.
Go Grasshopper!! – I used to do Pilates at anther well known downtown studio and was underwhelmed with the client relations. I decided to move 2 years ago and searched for another studio. I chanced upon Grasshopper Pilates and have never looked back. I met the owner, Gina, who welcomed me enthusiastically and I very soon got into her Pilates groove. I get a superb physical workout and have made many new friends there. I also recently had a baby and with excellent guidance from Gina and the other instructors I was able to enjoy Pilates until 2 wks before my son was born and then to pick it up again aftewards. It feels fantastic!!
The mat classes here Rock! – And the great sense of community the owner has managed to create makes it fun to work out with and get to know other people in your neighborhood. Both the mat classes and Grasshopper Pilates' private and duet sessions will leave you trim, taut and terrific. Go ahead, get started and feel great about your body.
Great workout! – I didn't think I would like pilates because I am a cardio-type exerciser, but my first session at Grasshopper Pilates changed my mind! Not only did I feel like I got a good workout, it actually really challenged me which is important to me when choosing a place to workout at. I found muscles that I didn't even know I had! Everyone there is so nice and helpful, but at the same time, they really push you to go to your limit. If you are lucky enough to get a session with Gina the owner, you will see why she has so many devoted followers who keep coming back for more torture. I definitely recommend Grasshopper Pilates, and this is a lot coming from someone who used to think that pilates wasn't a "real" workout!
Looks aren't everything – After reading all these great reviews I was pretty excited to give grasshopper a try. I took a couple Mat classes and I have to say I was NOT impressed. There aren't that many classes to choose from in the first place and neither class I took was challenging. I gave them a second chance and grasshopper failed twice in a row. I've taken MUCH better classes at other downtown studios. If you're looking for an awesome workout, if you want to sweat, if you want to feel it the next day, this is not the place for you.
fantastic workout!! – ok.... the studio is so pleasant to walk into! everyone has a smile on their face -- especially owner gina paplia. it is clean and well kept. her smile is so sweet you just cannot believe she can make you sweat so much! the sessions are perfectly geared towards your level and what you body is needing. the stomach series is killer!!! i no longer fear bathing suit season!
