He pays particular attention to individual goals along with working around any past or current injuries someone is dealing with. There are options for one on one training, group classes like ball, pilates, circuit or the new "jungle gym" using TRX straps on the new wall or just dropping in on your own time. If you prefer to mix it up with spinning there are classes with multiple instructors and even yoga to help balance the body and mind. If you want to get in shape, be challenged and meet some great people all while having fun, this is the perfect gym for you.
If you had told me six months ago that not only would I be hitting the studio four to five times a week, but it would be a highlight of my day, I would’ve told you you were nuts. But that was before a friend recommended Total Body Pilates and Yoga (TBPY). Coach Nicole makes fitness a fun, turnkey operation. You don’t have to purchase, maintain, or store fitness equipment, nor you have to figure out what workout to do -- you just show up to a clean, nurturing environment and do the work. It’s different, varied, and short enough that it doesn’t feel repetitive and boring, and intense enough that you’ll see steady gains in functional fitness. I’m significantly more flexible, energetic, better toned, and twenty pounds lighter after just four months. Furthermore, not only am I stronger, but I’m better able to use that strength. At each session, I find I work harder and care more about doing well physically. It’s not so much that Coach pushes you so much as she believes in you so much you can’t help but start believing in yourself. At the same time, safety is paramount: One of the first questions Coach asks at the beginning of every session is the common greeting “How are you?” What’s uncommon is that she really wants to know, really listens, and remembers; throughout the session she’ll offer modifications to ensure you progress without over stressing any body parts which are less than 100% on a given day. It’s not enough to work to achieve results; one has to work effectively and that happens at TBPY: Coach Nicole and Coach Danielle monitor your workouts for both safety and efficacy and provide the minor corrections to turn a good workout into a great one. Beyond the physical, they track the mental and have the knack for knowing just when you need a bit of a verbal push to fight through fatigue and stay strong. What TBPY Pilates is to the body, Yogini Lainey’s gentle yoga classes are to the mind. Combining self awareness and movement, her classes relieve both mental and physical stress. Yogini Katie’s power yoga classes combine mental focus, flexibility and an upbeat pace to provide a mix of mental clarity, flexibility, and cardio growth. Instruction is clear and easy to follow, and they carefully monitor and adjust and improve positioning when you don’t quite get it the first time.
My abs have never looked better thanks to Gold Post Pilates. I am so much stronger in my core and my balance is really good too. I love training at the studio so much! The spaciousness and decor in it make it have a spa like atmosphere. The equipment is top notch too! Marilyn and Tattiana are wonderful!

I also encourage my clients to accept their bodies the way they are as well as the direction they are moving in.
