Pilates Benefits I’ve been running one of the most successful Pilates studios in Key Biscayne for 8 years now. The most rewarding thing about my job is when my clients tell me they feel stronger, more energized and have less pain. One of the reasons why we stand out from other studios is that we take the time to focus on the individual. Each body is different and has its own unique needs. So, the first thing we do is assess your body and posture, evaluate range of motion and detect any imbalances. We then create a customized workout program to help change your body. No matter your age or physique, Pilates offers many wonderful benefits. My clients are always pleasantly surprised at how much the workout has changed their lives. Done regularly, Pilates empowers you to be in control of your body, health and well-being. It’s truly the best investment you can make for yourself. So, come and change your body and feel the difference at Pilates Center By Bernadette.
