About this class

The reformer provides finely tuned exercise resistance that allows one to work very precisely to develop good alignment, core strength and flexibility. By using body weight and resistance of the springs to push and pull the carriage, you will train a variety of body parts.

Pilates Reformer with Dora
Dora kills it, as always!
Pilates Reformer with Melissa
Melissa is the best pilates instructor at Rise! I wish they would use a different sanitizer than the very floral one in the spray bottles (magnolia?). It makes the equipment smell rancid (like crusty body hygiene) when it's overused making the smell linger. I get grossed out every time and have to tell myself it's actually proof of cleaning.
Pilates Reformer with Stephanie
Stephanie is great! Awesome core workout. Love her Reformer class.
Pilates Reformer with Melissa
I really enjoy coming to Rise for Pilates. Melissa has micro movements that really make you feel the burn ^^
Pilates Reformer with Dora
Dora is so welcoming. The class is taught at a moderate pace so that any level of Pilates learner can participate.

Took this class a few times in this studio and loved it but this instructor was kinda mean
Pilates Reformer with Erika
Class had a variety of exercises, but instruction could've been better. I would've liked to know if I was actually doing the moves correctly.

Quick paced. Probably not good for a first timer but I really liked the class.
Pilates Reformer with Stephanie
Best teacher and class ever! For anyone who is of color and may feel uneasy in their body - who is afraid of how others will perceive them RISE Bodyworks is for you! The best most welcoming gym.

It was fun finally get to try it out. The teacher was helpful and friendly. I would like to get to it more.
Pilates Reformer with Stephanie
Loved this class, the ab work was no joke! Great instruction, just the right intensity, overall good workout. Only thing is that the studio was a bit smelly and the air was a bit stale.

Stephanie is a great teacher who inspires me to get to the gym. Good workout goes that goes by quickly.
Pilates Reformer with Melissa
I've taken classes with three pilates teachers at Rise and Melissa is my favorite. This is my first class with her. Very detailed in instructions and very focused.
Pilates Reformer with Melissa
Awesome workout. I was pushed but I could still keep up with modifications. Instructor encourage the class to challenge ourselves while still focusing on form.
Pilates Reformer with Nieka
My first Pilates Reformer class ever! It was challenging and fun. Nieka is a great teacher with a funny sense of humor to go with it! She helped me fixed my form and would check on me to make sure I was on the right track. I look forward to more classes with her for a good workout and a good laugh!
