I have always run, swam and cycled for fitness but 2 years ago, after my third herniated disc, a physiotherapist recommended Pilates as a way to strength my core and lower back. I had never exercised in a “gym like” setting before and I remember being so self-conscious in the first class, as I fumbled with equipment and struggled through the exercises.

I was concerned my new job would get in the way of my Pilates schedule but because they have early morning and late evening classes I am still able to squeeze a class in before or after work which I’m so grateful for. It’s the perfect way to start or end my day, RTR is my happy place.

— Molly Hamilton

I have recommended RTR Pilates to numerous friends and patients because it has changed my life for the better and I would like everyone I know to be able to feels as great and healthy as I do!!

I absolutely love RTR Pilates. I first started there after the birth of my fourth child. While the workouts were extremely challenging, the instructors had both the expertise and the demeanor to put me at ease and really build up my strength – and confidence. I have never felt so in shape – and addicted – to an exercise at a Pilates studio that is as friendly as a local, small town coffee shop.

— K. Henry

I highly recommend Pilates to everyone, any age, and any fitness level. Unlike other exercise regimes, Pilates has strengthened and toned my entire body. My posture is better, my core is stronger and I have flexibility that I didn’t think was possible.

— Lindsey Crane

RTR Pilates has provided me with excellent instruction over the past six months. April and the RTR Pilates team have made scheduling and adjusting classes a breeze! My core strength and overall flexibility achievements are truly remarkable.
