Great place for pilates! 5/17/2011

I started working out at Rinaldi with Michelle about a year ago and it's been a great experience! Having started pilates 4 years ago, I've tried out a few different studios in the city and I prefer Rinaldi because of the intructors, the quiet, clean studio and the flexibility in scheduling. As long as I'm in NYC, Rinaldi will continue to be my pilates studio! more

Incredible pilates instructors! 4/25/2010

I started at Rinaldi Pilates two years ago when I decided to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. I had knee problems and Michele and Kristin tailored my workouts to help me train for the climb while taking my limitations into account. Even after the climb, I continued with Rinaldi Pilates until I moved to Philadelphia. Still, I never miss a session when I'm back in New York for a visit! Thank you!!! Pros: private focused sessions, knowledgeable instructors Cons: sorry I didn't find them sooner more

Just in time for the Holidays! 12/1/2009

I came across Rinaldi Plilates on one of my favorite fitness blogs, Vital Juice. They were offering an awesome Introductory Special and I couldn't resist trying the studio-- with its boutique style and one-on -one training, it seemed like a Pilates experience unlike any other I had ever experienced... and that was exactly right. Michele, the owner, worked me hard but also took the time to explain the proper alignments and postures. I can't express how grateful I am for having tried this studio and how much I am looking forward to incorporating it into my New Year's workout routine! I HIGHLY recommend Rinaldi Pilates to Pilates enthusiasts of any level! Great studio! more

The Best Pilates Session EVER!!! 8/28/2009

I have worked with many different trainers over the years and I have never met a group of trainers more aware and perceptive to the individual goals and needs of each client. Each session is tailored specifically for you. You not only do the moves, you learn to do them correctly. I?ve worked muscles I never knew existed and my body has completely transformed! The atmosphere is warm, friendly and very private. It?s difficult for me to write in words how absolutely amazing a session at Rinaldi Pilates truly is! All I can say is that in all my years of doing pilates, Rinaldi Pilates is definitely unsurpassed!! Pros: Incredible Trainers in a Great Atmosphere! more

Great studio! 8/25/2009

Having spent many years playing the piano for 4-7 hours a day (not always with perfect posture), I have very specific needs and difficulties when it comes to exercise. I have worked with Andrea at Rinaldi Pilates for over a year now, and have found her to be not only an excellent pilates instructor, but also very intuitive when it comes to figuring out a solution to a physical issue. I have also worked with Michelle, on occasion, who is great! Both instructors are serious about their work and open-minded enough to consider the unique strengths and weaknesses of each individual. Both also have a great sense of humor, which is refreshing in a field which can take itself quite seriously! The small studio size makes for a private and focused workout setting. Overall, highly recommended. Pros: Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, private setting more

Stellar Private Pilates!!! 8/25/2009

Why I sought out private Pilates: I have been experiencing muscular tension in my neck and shoulders and tendonitis in my wrists and elbows for years as a result of occupational motioins--guitar and computers. What I learned at Rinaldi Pilates: certain repetitive motions that are inherent with my guitar playing and computer work have caused me to overdevelop particular muscle groups and under develop others. What I have begun to cultivate through my Pilates work: with my instructor Andrea's expertise in utilizing the Pilates method, i have been able to strengthen the more subtle muscle groups that I was previously unaware of. Learning, one exercise at a time, to develop these ""under developed"" muscles has begun the process of healing my body. The staff at Rinaldi Pilates are dedicated to individual needs and are not simply assisting you through a predesigned template. If you have a desire to realize significant physical change and enhance your understanding of how to integrate your different body parts, then this is your place!!! They are not playing around at Rinaldi Pilates, they know their stuff. Check it out... Pros: Detailed attention to individual needs and conditions Cons: None, literally! more

Improved strength, flexibility and posture! 8/24/2009

Michele and her staff are professional, talented, upbeat and engaging. As a rehabilitation professional I feel that the entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and well versed in human anatomy and proper body mechanics. I've been working out with Rinaldi Pilates for the past year and have seen definite improvements in my posture, strength and flexibility. I highly recommend this pilates studio! more

Hooked on Pilates for LIFE! 7/21/2009

I have been intimidated by pilates after unsuccessful mat classes I've taken for years. When I first visited Rinaldi Pilates to set up an appointment, the owner Michele, was very friendly and helpful with scheduling around busy schedule. After my first training-session I was hooked. Not only did Michele and her staff make the session enjoyable, but they also paid close attention to my form and performance. I walked out of my first couple sessions feeling stronger and more confident in my pilates future. Thanks Michele, Andrea, and the rest of the Rinaldi Pilates staff for your help and fostering my complete obsession with pilates! Pros: Friendly and helpful instructors Cons: Class went by too quickly because I was having so much fun more

Made me actually like working out! 11/26/2008

Having heard about the benefits of Pilates but never having tried it, I came to Rinaldi Pilates not knowing what to expect or if I would like it. Having seem Pilates classes in gyms like Equinox I was pretty skeptical. Well, now I enjoy it so much my friends comment on how happy I am after I have a lesson, I am bummed when I have to miss one and besides feeling stronger and more nimble the waist on my pants are loose after just a few months. Pros: Great instructors, clean space, flexible scheduling Cons: I cannot think of any! more

Excellent instructors in a quiet studio 10/14/2008

I have been extremely happy with my sessions here. While I prefer to work with one instructor who can monitor my progress, I have had the opportunity to work with four different instructors and have only positive things to say about them. The equipment is clean and in good working order and while the studio is small, it is bright and doesn't feel confining. Pros: Personalized service, friendly and positive instructors Cons: Slightly more expensive,but for a reason more

Fantastic Workout! 2/15/2008

I?ve seen a significant change in the overall shape of my body since I started going to Rinaldi Pilates over a year ago. Pilates has also been extremely important in helping me stay in shape while I?ve been pregnant and physically prepare for delivery. Michele is a great instructor and unbelievably knowledgeable about how the human body works and her energetic personality makes our sessions go by in a flash! She tailors each session to meet my individual needs so I?ve seen and felt the results faster than with other types of exercise and no two sessions are ever the same. Rinaldi Pilates will definitely make you look and feel better! more

Helped me find my pelvic floor again! 9/12/2007

As a pilates instructor myself, with major hip issues, i was so relieved to find a studio where the instructors both challenged me AND listend to my body and its limitations. The studio is an intimate setting where you feel like you're getting the one on one attention that the cost of a private lesson merits. The equipment is top knotch as well, a rarity i've found in giant NYC pilates factories. Rinaldi Pilates is the best value for your money for privates or duets in NYC. more

Treat Yourself to the Best Pilates in NYC! 2/12/2007

I began going to Rinaldi Pilates after a hiatus from working out due to an illlness. Michelle is a brilliant instructor who guided me thoughtfully through each move and each session week to week. I can see and feel my progress plus there is the added bonus of builidng a healthy core and my nagging back problems subsided! She also incoporates some aspects of physical training to give a total body workout. Michelle has a beautiful spirit and takes great care of her clients; nuturing and motivating and the studio is both comfortable and meticulous. Pros: Fabulous instructor, beautiful intimitate studio Cons: Pilates is always a little costly- but this was worth it more

Best Pilates in NYC 1/31/2007

After beginning Pilates at Rinaldi Pilates six months ago, I have not only noticed a change in my posture and overall core strength, but also see old injuries disappearing and generally becoming more flexible. Michele makes each session unqiue, challenging, and a wonderful experience that I look forward to each week. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my Pilates, and recommend Rinaldi Pilates to friends, family, and anyone else! more

Great Abs! 1/29/2007

I have been doing private sessions with the owner and founder since the studio opened and I am hooked. Pilates has changed my body and posture and as a result I have lost weight and feel strong. The studio is incredibly clean, the instruction is great (very personalized) and I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Rinaldi Pilates or pilates. Pros: Body changing, defined abs, great workout more

Perfect pregnant pilates 1/26/2007

I've been taking pilates for a few years and worked w/ Michelle before I became pregnant. She is a terrific teacher who uses classic training combined w/ a custom workout. I have worked with her throughout my pregnancy and have felt absolutely great and strong. She's adjusted my workouts accordingly and taken extra time to be patient and creative. I would recommend Rinaldi pilates for those pregnant and those who are just looking to get toned and in shape. more


I've been taking pilates from michelle for many months and she has completely changed my life and body. I was always very intimidated by any type of athletic activity, but from the beginning michelle put me at ease with her patient yet motivating demeanor. I've seen significant changes in my body, for the first time in my life i have muscle tone, i've built up my core, increased my circulation, and my sciatica, which was always was a problem for me, has been healed. the studio is great, a cute, clean, quaint setting, located on a quiet street in the e village, and you can't beat the price. I've taken classes at many studios throughout manhattan and due to michelle's method of teaching and nuturing spirit, i would never think of going elsewhere. more
