We have some awesome clients who love working out at Pilates 4 Bodies. Check out what they have to say about us!
"LOVE GOING TO THIS TWICE A WEEK! Kerry and her studio have transformed my life. I do my happy dance on Tuesday and Thursday b/c I get to go! People need to come check this out."
"Kerry Mathern is a wonderful teacher who brings out the best in all her students. She understands the unique needs of everyone in her class and respects what we can do while challenging us to be the best we can be. Kerry is incredible supportive, fun, and positive; it's truly a joy to be with her. I can personally attest to the strength and confidence I've gained by studying under her. I felt the impact of what she taught us even after my first class with her--and every class after that! Whether you are new to Pilates or have years of experience, Kerry will help you reach your goals and have a blast doing it!"
"I started Pilates at my Physician's recommendation after not exercising for 15 years. Ellene immediately embraced the challenge of increasing my strength and flexibility. Her tireless positivity and encouragement builds my confidence and self-esteem which in turn makes me want to work harder. With her personal attention and motivating instruction she makes me feel as if I am the only one in the class. When I become discouraged, my favorite phrase of Ellene's is “You’re here, that’s what counts”. I started Pilates in search of strength and flexibility and I have also, unexpectedly, found a friend."
"I have been a student of Debbie Firtel's since Dec. 2011. I started training with her to look good for my wedding. Not only has she helped get me in the best shape for my wedding, but Debbie has taught me to love Pilates in a way where I want to pursue my own training career. Debbie is always on time, comes in with a smile, and I always look forward to working with her every week. She is so fun and pleasant to work with. Even after my wedding, I am continuing my training because I love the way she pushes me and continues to develop my understanding of Pilates."
“A friend of mine kept urging me to try out Pilates with her. I finally acquiesced. I had no idea what it would entail. I was hooked from the first day. It did not matter that I was a beginner. Kerry, the instructor, was so hands on with giving guidance and encouragement. She loves what she does and is passionate about teaching others. I look forward to working out!”
"I have been attending regular Pilates classes with Ellene Kloepfer for a year now. I am pleased to say that I am so much stronger and I'm able to do exercises that would have been impossible before. I have serious issues with my neck and the training has relieved much of my discomfort. Ellene is very careful to make sure my neck is protected and that the exercises are structured in such a way as to benefit my healing."
"I discovered Pilates 6 months ago and it’s amazing! I tell people it will be something I do the rest of my life. Besides the body transformation, the instructor Ellene Kloepfer makes all the difference. I can’t imagine going to a class without her instruction, she’s awesome!"
"I can’t say enough good things about Kerry Mathern, and Pilates 4 Bodies. I truly appreciate Kerry’s mindfulness and attention to detail, as I came to pilates with back and shoulder issues. Kerry has helped me create awareness in my own body, while cultivating strength. Her classes are fun-loving, she cares deeply for her clients, and they are challenging; I walk away feeling like I get a total body workout. Thank you, Kerry, for making be stronger and leaner."
"Kerry is a wonderful Pilates instructor. She has been my teacher at Pilates4Bodies for the last 7 months. She is sweet, precise, efficient and highly qualified. She will correct you a lot at the beginning as she really cares about you doing the right movement. Forming good habits is essential in Pilates. Kerry has been truly dedicated to helping me reach my goals. She does a great job challenging students enough but also customizing some exercises if you have a tight back and neck issues. I haighly recommend her! One hour with Kerry is a good workout and fun!"
"I'm a 74 year old woman who started doing Pilates 18 months ago. I had a very slight stroke 4 years ago and recovered well but was feeling unsteady and had more aches and pains than before my stroke. My friend, Kerry, was becoming a certified Pilates instructor and offered to take me on as a client. Pilates 4 Bodies is a beautiful, clean and comfortable studio. I've been going twice a week for over a year and enjoy both the workout and the company. This past April I was visiting my son in San Diego and we spent two days visiting museums and botanical gardens. There was a lot of walking and going up and down hilly pathways. That's when I noticed that I didn't have to sit and rest, I had no trouble breathing, and I felt great afterwards. I'm so glad I finally started taking care of my body. I have lost weight, I can breath easier, and I feel better all over. Thank you to my wonderful friend and instructor, Kerry Mathern."
"I have been taking Pilates (mat and refomer) twice a week now for over a year and have had amazing results in gaining core strength, flexibility, balance and inner awareness of my body. Besides that, I have lost pounds and inches... can't beat that! Ellene is an amazing instructor... I feel very blessed to have her instruction in Pilates as well as in Dressage. She is very detailed, engaging and her workouts are challenging. I just keep coming back for more... I love her classes!!"
"Ellene trains with total enthusiasm, amazing patience and positive feedback. Classes are fun and a great workout. She can quickly assess strengths and weaknesses and adapts the lessons to fit your needs."
"When I began Pilates I had been suffering from plantar fasciitis and a chronic injury to both of my feet, which had rendered me virtually inactive - I could not walk or stand for any length of time and, on a recent trip, had even resorted to using a wheelchair at times. After 2 years of dedicated practice of physical therapy with minimal improvement, I was looking for something new to try that might bring me some relief and help me return to a normal range of activities. I had heard of Pilates but did not really know what it entailed. I was surprised to find in my first session with Kerry that it felt invigorating and did not cause pain to my feet or aggravate the injured areas. I was even more surprised when I got out of bed the very next day and was able to stand up with the least amount of pain since I had been injured. As I continued to practice Pilates I experienced wave after wave of improvement. I began to be able to stay on my feet for longer periods of time without pain and restricted movement.
Before I began Pilates, I had been worried that I wouldn’t understand the different positions but Kerry is such a gifted instructor! She clearly describes how to perform each movement and closely guides each student to insure they are safely completing each action so that they won’t injure themselves but will gradually strengthen and rehabilitate their core muscle groups. Best of all, she’s so encouraging and fun to work with - the time just flies by! I love the group classes as well, because we all support each other. It’s a collaborative environment, instead of competitive, which is not always the case in other types of exercise.
After 2 months of classes, I just went on my first run in 2 years! I am filled with such gratitude for Kerry and how she has been able to help me through Pilates. When you lose something like your mobility and then receive it back it feels like such a gift. I now have hope I will be able to return to hiking Colorado’s summits this summer which I was beginning to fear I might never do again. As a side benefit, but one in which I’m greatly appreciating, is the return of strength, flexibility and balance. Thank you Kerry and Pilates 4 Bodies!"
