Come HERE for Pilates. 1/29/2007

This is the place to be for a true Pilates experience. There is a welcoming and encouraging atmospere that encompasses the BEST workout you could ask for, based on the REAL foundations of Pilates. Whether you are experienced or a beginner, you will find an instructor that you can work with and just LOVE. Entering the studio as a trained dancer with scoliosis and tight hips, I have greatly improved my posture and overall flexibility. Pros: highly regarded, fun, friendly staff more

Best of Everything! 10/29/2006

From the minute you walk through the door until the time you leave, you feel like you are taken care of. The gracious staff greets you at the door, and they go out of their way to fit your ideal workout into your schedule. The space and equipment takes you back in time, and you get a sense of what it might have been like during the days of Joseph Pilates. The instructors have all been trained to teach the classical pilates method, yet they each have their own personal style and something different to add to your workout. I have been taking pilates sessions for almost 5 years now, and I have finally found a studio that offers the best of everything! Pros: great location more

A Breathe of Freshness! 10/22/2006

I've been doing Pilates for 5yrs and have always ended up changing studios because of trainers who were not available, or not challenging me, or because the environment was too pretenious and unprofessional. I can say in all sincerity that I will not be changing my studio status now that I have dealt with the warm professionals at Real Pilates. Finally a group of Pilates People who are, in addition to being educated and passionate about their field are fun and interesting to work with. I always leave with my body humming and my brain focused on the helpful advice of my teachers, all of whom are knowledgeable and bring something fresh to my workout. Its so nice to finally look forward to my sessions, and too want to step up my workouts! more

Keepin it Real! 10/3/2006

Real Pilates keeps it real! A real one of a kind experience you can't get anywhere else; and you have the option to take lessons from a variety of different talented teachers that have a lot to offer! The teachers are real, the method is real, and the energy is raw. Highly recommended! more

Young Athlete program 7/17/2006

I've been completely addicted to Pilates for the past two years. It never occurred to me, however, what it could do for my 12 year old daughter's figure skating until we heard about the Pilates for Young Athletes program at Real Pilates. Actually, we heard about Alden first. It's hard to find personal trainers who understand how to work with kids. Alden not only specializes in working with young athletes but has also worked with lots of skaters. Her youthful energy is contagious. She knows when to push and when to play. Now my daughter is jumping better, spinning better, and skating with more confidence...but most importantly, she looks forward to going to Pilates as much as she does to skating. more

Simply the Best 7/4/2006

I started at Real Pilates a little over a year ago. Had always been v. active runner but was new to Pilates. The team of instructors whipped me into the best shape of my life. Have stayed at Real Pilates throughout my pregnancy (34 week and counting). The instructors are the best - extremely well trained, motivated and intelligent. Sasha rocks. Pros: Staff, friendly setting, no attitude more

Heal back pain! 6/28/2006

I had never done pilates before and now I am absolutely hooked. I've had back and neck pain for years because of scoliosis. Physical therapy could only do so much, but pilates has been the answer to being pain free. I've also been able to lose weight and get more toned than I have ever been before. Alden is the absolute best! She gets the maximum out of you each session and even makes it fun! I'm always surprised how fast each hour goes and how incredible I feel after. more

Best Pilates in NYC 6/25/2006

This studio is amazing- they have so many great, and very different teachers there. The vibe is really friendly and mellow, not competitive, while the facility is sleek and beautiful. They're not pretentious or pretending. It's the real deal- they'll whip you into shape, heal your back, or stretch you out- whatever you're looking for. It's the highest quality of Pilates available. Pros: Great teachers, great atmosphere Cons: you'll wish you could go there every day more

the best of everything 6/25/2006

i've worked out here a number of times, each time with someone different. every workout was incredible! i get the best of everything here- the best stretch, the best sweat, and the best instructors! more

awesome hour 6/9/2006

So my wife goes here and she bought me a lesson with Daniel. He is the author of the complete book of Pilates for men and she figured I would be a touch more open to going if he was my instructor. It was great! sweat, stretch, and hard work....loved it. more

Finally!! A Real place to do Real Pilates 6/6/2006

I can't tell you how happy I was to find Real Pilates. I have studied Pilates for years and been to so many studios in New York that presumably offer ""authentic"" Pilates. Sadly, in almost every case, the teachers were badly trained or unprofessional. I often felt like I knew more than they did. At the Real Pilates the teachers are amazing and the vibe is wonderful! In addition to being able to deal with a student of any level, the teachers are also experienced and advanced enough to challenge and motivate an experienced practioner. Yeah!!! I am never leaving! Pros: Convenient to subway, Lots of mat classes, Lots of reformers Cons: Can't think of any!! more

Something for Everyone! 6/5/2006

They've got boys, they've got foreign speaking teachers, they've got it fast, hard and sweaty, and slow and therapeutic. Real Pilates has whatever type of Pilates you need but all in the classical vocabulary. I've been to several studios and the offerings here are the broadest in the city. They worked me out when I was in great shape, when I was pregnant and when I broke my ankle!!! Amazing, right? I particularly like the fact that they have 3 locations - because I can always get a great workout. The tribeca location has the biggest studio. Pros: Three Locations Cons: Only One Shower more

why go anywhere else? 6/5/2006

Just had a wonderful session with Robbie, an extremely handsome Pilates teacher who gave me a sessoion I will not soon forget. I feel like the level of instuction and the ambiance gives this studio an across the board thumbs up! What more can I say? I'm beaming!!! :) Pros: near all trains, close to starbucks more

Listen up Guys 6/4/2006

If you're a guy, hear me out. Pilates is not for girls. I had my doubts but when my girlfriend signed me up with one of the guy instructors at Real Pilates, I was totally shocked. These guys are not playin' - they work out hard, fast and do things I've never seen in a regular gym. The place is great, but the workout is what you really go there for. They've got at least 5 guy teachers and they all are great. more

The perfect workout for the perfect price 6/1/2006

I think EVERYONE should workout here! The instructors are all top notch and extremely knowledgeable about the body. I have back problems and each instructor had very helpful hints and modifications specialized just for me, but I still got a great workout and learned so many new excercises on the machines. I even felt strong days later. The staff are also very fun and friendly. They make you feel right at home. And the price is right on, especially since their mat classes are so small that you're practically getting a private session for a fraction of the cost! more

Pilates in Tribeca 5/31/2006

Alycea's Real Pilates is an amazing place. The staff is very professional, and Alycea is wonderful. I started pilates 6 years ago, and it has been a terrific experience. You'll get hooked too if you give it a try! more
