Pilates was critical to developing my core strength in preparation for and and in my recovery from surgery. Prior to moving to Gainesville, I lived in large metropolitan areas where I was fortunate to have access to top-notch Pilates studios. I was so pleased to find that the Encore Pilates studio instructors offered the same high, classical training standards and focus on achieving results safely. They are exceptionally skilled instructors who teach with professionalism, passion, dedication and attention to form and detail. Sessions are rigorous and enriched by the cheerful humor of the instructors. I cannot thank them enough for their mentorship throughout my rehabilitation and in helping me achieve my fitness goals. I am so grateful for the agility and strength Pilates has given me!
