A GREAT Place – I've been a student at Helios for about two years now and can't say enough about the studio and those that teach there. I was completely new to Pilates and have now become a huge fan and believer.
Contrary to a previous post, Heilo's has an amazing make up of professional, personable, knowledgable staff who are extremely dedicated to their clients and work. I have and will continue to recommend my friends to experience Fletcher Pilates and the wonderful teachers at Helios!
Not worth it anymore – I am very disappointed with Helios. After they moved into their new studio the vibe started to change. It went from feeling like a comfortable low key environment where you could do pilates without judgement to a corporate factory that was more focused on training new fletcher pilates teachers than working with regular people.
I was still committed studio because I loved my teacher, Molly. But when she was fired and I wasn't told for five days I had enough.
The owner finally sent out emails and started to call some people. But it was too little to late. She won't refund money to people who only took classes with this one teacher.
Overall it has turned into a toxic place where the average person who wants to take a couple classes doesn't matter as much as someone who will pay the big bucks for the teacher training program.
Best Workout I've Ever Had!! – I started going to Helios in October and fell in love with the environment, the intense workouts, and my instuctors Jill and Molly. I've never been pushed so hard in my life, but was extremely satisfied with the results :)
I Finally Enjoy My Workout!!!!! – I have been going to Helios for about a year, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life and my body. I am more flexible, stronger, and more toned. I finally found a routine that I actually like to do. My instructor Molly is a tremendous motivator she always pushes me to do my best, never lets me give up and makes my workouts fun. I still can't believe that I actually got results from my work out regimen and that I enjoy it.
Best Pilates Studio Ever!!! – I started going to Helios just over a year ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Everyone is so friendly and makes you feel welcomed. My instructor Molly is AWESOME!!! She keeps my workouts interesting & fun and always pushes me to do a little more each time. My muscles are so much stronger and I am able to do moves that I never thought I would. I really look forward to my weekly sessions!!!
Great Workout from Empowering Helios Ladies – I found Helios by accident a few years ago looking for a Pilates studio in Chicago. I've since tried a number of others in the neighborhood, and no one holds a candle to these ladies! The ower Jenna and her team are so well educated, and they practice a unique type of pilates called "the Fletcher method," which focuses not only on your muscles getting a good workout, but also on your breath, your posture, and your overall functional movement. I'm narrower from both the front AND the side, and my arms have a "cut" line - which is pretty impressive from one very white girl! I wouldn't trade this place and my twice weekly visits.
Look forward to my classes every week! – I've been attending classes at Helios since January 2009 and I have loved every single class I've experienced - floor, mat, reformer, chair, etc. Jenna, Molly and Jill are all FABULOUS! I've been in sports and worked out my whole life, yet I've still seen great results from the classes here. My muscles are stronger than ever before and I swear I've grown a 1/2 inch - not bad for a girl who is 5'0"! ;) Absolutely LOVE Helios and their instructors too.
Can't go a week without a class at this studio – Working out has been a part of my life for 15 years and I have tried everything. It wasn't until I started Fletcher Pilates studio that I truly found a work out that I love and that actually impacts my body and life. The instructors are amazing and knowledgeable!!!
Great instructors – After unsuccesfully treating a hip condition through traditional physical therapy, I started sessions at Helios to improve my hip strength and mobility - and stay in shape for my upcoming wedding, since my usual running routine wasn't possible! Not only did my hip significantly improve, but i was able to shave inches off my waist and feel great at my wedding. Molly is an incredible instructor who helps achieve your goals and pushes you hard, but knows how to have fun with the sessions too!
Changed my life! – I first went into Helios a yr ago. I was ready to really turn my body into a well oiled machine after experiencing issues with my back for years. The trainers here are very supportive and knowledgeable. I overcame my obstacles quickly under Kristine’s personal instruction and became the person I've always wanted to be physically, and pain free! I'm grateful for the guidance and inspiration from here. Rock on gals!
