Working out at the SweatShop allows me to stay in good condition, keep routine going in my life, see people whom I care about and who care about me, and feel like I am part of something good – a special group of people. Their team of professionals has impressed me with their creativity and initiative, and I have seen how much they really care about the members happiness and well-being. That feeling of being cared for and cared about is what has kept me at the SweatShop for all these years.

From the first time I walked into the SweatShop, it just felt right, and I couldn’t wait to get started. The classes are small, the instructors are personable and highly professional, and they are generous with their time and knowledge."

The SweatShop professional training program is excellent. The Instructor Trainers are very knowledgeable, not only in the STOTT PILATES® method, but also in anatomy, and practical application of the exercises with clients and appropriate modifications.  They have many years of experience working with clients and give excellent and accurate instruction.
