Pilates is a system of mind-body exercise done on the floor, “mat work,” or utilizing apparatus specially designed by Joseph Pilates for resistance-based, whole body conditioning. It is a low impact form of exercise, making it great for all “bodies”. Pilates apparatus’ unique design utilizes spring resistance to strengthen the body as an integrated unit, rather than just targeting isolated muscle groups. Pilates uses minimum repetitions to get maximum results! Each Pilates exercise is performed in a precise and controlled manner. Focus on breath, quality and precision of movement is what sets Pilates apart from other exercise programs.
The Pilates Studio at HealthQuest is fully equipped with the traditional spring based apparatus designed by Joseph Pilates. In addition, we have the Balanced Body CoreAlign system, an extraordinarily versatile piece of equipment with hundreds of completely new and unique movement exercises. Our studio is dedicated to providing Pilates instruction in a safe, supportive and warm environment. All exercises are tailored to the individual body to support your fitness and wellness goals.
Classes are offered 6 days a week. We offer group classes (5-6 people) for all levels. We also offer private and semi-private sessions, upon request.
Non-members of HealthQuest are welcome to be part of the Pilates Studio!

“Last year, while I was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, Deb A suggested that I try a Pilates Reformer class. I thought she was crazy! Why would I want to try a new class when I was already cutting back on my workouts? My endurance was gone and I couldn’t use any of the machines in the Fitness Center or lift weights without getting exhausted. It turns out, Pilates was exactly what I needed. With each class I could feel my strength, flexibility and confidence improving. It doesn’t matter if you are rehabilitating from an illness or a seasoned athlete, you can benefit from Pilates. So many workouts focus on moving faster and lifting heavier weights. Pilates teaches you to slow down, focus, breathe and watch your body get stronger.” – Bev E.
“After suffering with chronic back pain for years, I began taking Pilates with Stephanie 18 months ago and I can tell you that it has truly changed my quality of life. I rarely have pain and when I do it is not nearly as severe or long lasting. I recently had a physical and when my height was taken I was told that I had magically grown an inch! My core is stronger and posture much improved. One of the things that I really like about Pilates is that there are literally 100’s of different exercises that focus on one’s specific needs and as you get stronger the exercises get more challenging. My only regret is that I didn’t start doing Pilates years ago!” -Dr. Paul Marciano
