"I began at Premier Pilates for my own health because of multiple medical issues. I was so impressed by my own sessions that we became the first skilled nursing facility (Landmark Care Center) in the country to purchase a studio reformer and wall tower from Balanced Body. As a Physical Therapist, I have taken the principles of Joseph Pilates and introduced them in each treatment session in order to improve core control and the stability necessary for improved function. In addition to these benefits, I have noticed a dramatic decrease in back and shoulder pain as the clients have improved their posture and ability to maintain the proper alignment for the natural design of the body.
We are fortunate to have a studio and incredible instructor here in Central Washington that is as good or better than the high-priced studios in New York. Take the advice of someone who sees the results of poor core control and posture and take an Intro Class at Premier. Your body will thank you.

Athletic activity has been a part of my life for 7 decades; but, I want to tell you, Pilates has brought a whole new dimension to me. With its focus upon the muscles of the body’s core, and its variety of muscle stretching routines, this is some of the best my body has felt as a result of exercise.
I began Pilates years ago to strengthen my back. I was also aware knee problems were in my future. When I had knee surgery, the strength in my leg and knee muscles aided my recovery. Because Pilates workouts build muscle memory, I was helped both pre and post surgery with maintaining good balance. Thank you Pilates for keeping me moving through life in a healthy way.
"After struggling with severe back pain for several years, I had my back “fused” in the fall of 2011. During one of my follow up appointments a few months later, I asked my surgeon “What can I do for a fitness program.” Their reply was I will do Pilates so I can strengthen my “core muscles”. If you don’t keep your core strong, you risk the chance of having more surgeries, I was told. That was all I needed to hear and I started looking into Pilates classes in the Spring of 2012.
After just a few classes I could feel the difference in my flexibility, strength and general demeanor. Pilates has kept me active and given me back a piece of my life I’ve missed far too long. I’m no longer hesitant to doing things I’ve avoided in the past.
As far as a “structured fitness program’ I feel Pilates is the best thing I’ve ever done for my body. I wish I would have started doing it 30 years ago"
