THE DOCTOR

“I had 3 years of back pain and muscle-tendon strains that prevented me from exercising and participating in sports. Within 3 weeks of starting Pilates with Vanessa, I had very little back pain. My strength and flexibility improved and I was able to return to my sports injury free. I couldn’t be happier with the results.”

– Michael Monroe, MD

 

THE FIRST-TIMER

“Vanessa has worked very closely with me to help alleviate some chronic neck and hip issues that I’ve been suffering with for a long time. I have no doubt that without Vanessa’s expertise I’d be suffering with much more discomfort and pain. On top of that, she makes Pilates fun!”

– Suzanne Riffel

 

THE GOLFER

“I am an avid golfer with structural lower back issues. I turned to Pilates about 8 years ago and certainly have to give the exercise program the credit for the core strength I now have and the much improved overall good feeling I experience. I have been a client of Vanessa’s for 2 ½ years, and regularly, she is still able to surprise me with new exercises, all the time, keeping it challenging. Considering my strengths and weaknesses, Vanessa has been able to create a workout that helps to improve my overall well being. I have always included an exercise component to my day, but Pilates has added so much more – I truly can say that my body responds in a negative way if sessions are missed.”

THE TRAVELER

“For years I have struggled with lower back pain, the results of old sports injuries combined with a desk job that also requires a large amount of travel. Over the past year of regular Pilates sessions I have seen a dramatic decrease in my back pain, as well as a noticeable increase in my core strength and stability. Vanessa is incredibly knowledgeable and always has new workouts planned to continue to build strength and flexibility, while also keeping workouts fun and interesting. I would recommend Pilates classes and training with Vanessa without reservation to anyone.”

THE CLASSIC BACK PROBLEM

“I am fortunate to have Vanessa Kelly as my Pilates Instructor. After being diagnosed with a back issue, I have taking Pilates for years. It can be difficult to find someone who has the experience and expertise and awareness to treat clients with injuries. Vanessa has been wonderful. She is knowledgeable and interested in my well being always being cognizant of my limitations. In addition, Vanessa has a thirst for learning. I personally recommend Vanessa as a Pilates Instructor.”

THE MOTHER-TO-BE

“I had an amazing experience working with Vanessa during my pregnancy. She was attentive to my needs and created prenatal workouts that allowed me to develop more of my physical strength and mind body connection. Pilates helped me build enough stamina to endure a 36 hour labor and delivery.”
