"I started doing pilates because my back hurt most of the time and my golf game had really slumped. I wanted to see if I could get something to help both things. The effects of consistent pilates practice has been profound. My back never hurts and my handicap has gone from a consistent 5-8 to 2 and sometimes 1. I’ve also lost a pants size, I feel better, play better, and look better. How can you beat that?"
"Pilates has played a vital role in my recovery from a lower back injury. Strengthening my core has allowed me take part in normal physical activities without the pain and my flexibility has drastically improved - which will help prevent further injuries."
"I had my first Iron Butterfly session over a year ago at the suggestion of my wife who is a personal trainer and tri-athlete. Working behind a computer all day had caused me a loss of flexibility and chronic muscle pain. I was skeptical, but Iron Butterfly pilates has restored my flexibility and the muscle pain is long gone."

"I am currently in my eighth year of practicing pilates and this is the best shape I have been in my 53 years of life. Along with the new challenges in class each week, we also receive positive feedback and thoughts to use during the week outside of class. If you are in a rut at the gym please try a few classes and see for yourself."
“Pilates takes it to the next level. It pushes your body mentally and physically to places you haven't been before. A workout that is different then any other you have experienced.”
"Pilates is the antidote to all the sports injuries I have accumulated over the years. The strength training element has helped to keep my joints protected and the stretching element has helped to keep my muscles limber. Unlike other strength and stretching routines, Pilates is all about the functional use of your body and translates perfectly into everyday activities including all types of sports."
“Originally, I thought Pilates was for women only and you couldn’t get a good workout. I was wrong on both counts; these workouts can be intense and the training can be customized to focus on those Muscle groups that are important to me.”

"My wife Ann and I really enjoy Pilates at Iron Butterfly. I
was really skeptical at first. It would not have been something I would have
picked without significant encouragement from Ann, but I found that I really
enjoy the workouts, which have given me new energy, more flexibility and
strength and helped improve my golf swing. Now I’m a big fan."

“My wife suggested private Pilates sessions on the reformer as therapy for upper body strain associated with my profession (I am a Periodontist). As a lifelong runner, I was skeptical. Now, I am amazed at the effectiveness of Pilates. The Pilates work changed and strengthened my entire body and, as a result, I am more comfortable in all aspects of movement. Additionally, my core strength, even with only one hour per week, is stronger than when I ran a marathon.”
Dr. Ken Corsig
“Pilates has become an integral part of my workout regimen. And not just because of the increase in core strength and flexibility that I've experienced; I actually look forward to the break from the routine it offers.”
"I'm new to Pilates and the staff at Iron Butterfly made it very easy for
me to like it. They are enthusiastic, encouraging and professional and
the workouts are always challenging and new. They've made a big
difference in my health and well-being."
