The owner Sarah is very welcoming, I always look forward to seeing her. The variety of classes are interesting and fun. The teachers are all gifted and attentive insuring proper technique for your best workout, great results. Studio is clean and filled mostly with regular locals so it's a great way to meet a new neighbor. More...

I started out as a Pilates "newbie" at Poway Pilates a few years ago, and I really can't recommend Pilates (and this studio) enough. The owner Sarah, the teachers, and the community of folks that attend this studio make it really special. No two workouts are the same and the teachers are all very attentive even in group classes and are good about reminding you to pay attention to what your body is feeling that day and suggesting modifications if needed. Thank you Poway Pilates for being my workout home away from home! More...

I began at Poway Pilates during my time on disability from an uncontrolled respiratory illness. I am not able to do any cardio so my Peloton bike sits at home untouched. I have done mat pilates at one of my employers who offered classes during lunch time. Although I had this background I did not feel comfortable jumping in to a class using the Reformer without proper instruction. (Not only am I a long time athlete, I was a gym rat for years and learned body building from a natural pro body builder). Proper technique is key!I took 5 private classes from Ni who is a world champion gymnast from China. Ni not only understand Pilates from training, she understands proper technique in order to get the best results as well as a good workout. I was ready.I have been taking classes from all of the instructors at Poway Pilates in the year and a half I have been there. What I like best is you can speak to the instructor before class, tell them your limitations and they will help you get the best out of the class for you. It is like having a private lesson with 10 others around you. I feel like I am being instructed with competent, professional people who by the way, make you smile and laugh here and there too. I leave there with a good sweat too!I want to also mention I have found a cheer leading squad at Poway Pilates, from the instructors and the women. This is a place women complement and support other women. There are all ages, sizes, shapes and backgrounds who readily share their experiences and who care. This little Poway studio is wonderful. And if you aren't quite happy with your class, speak up! These women, Sarah, want to help. I highly recommend this place! More...

I've been doing Pilates on and off for the last ten years- and no studio I have been to compares to this! I have taken classes at some of the most elite studios in New York and Chicago and nothing beats this cozy little spot in Poway. The owner Sarah is so sweet and teaches a killer class! As does the rest of the staff. As a former collegiate athlete I've suffered from rotator cuff and back injuries and within only a month or so have noticed a major difference in my mobility and strength, decreased pain and improvement in my overall well being! The best thing about this studio is the classes are always changing and challenging new parts of the body. No matter what level you are starting at the instructors make sure to ease you in and teach you the basics. If you are looking for a Pilates studio in the area you have to check this place out !

Yeah! These guys have Monday and Wednesday early morning classes (6:00 AM)! Great for 8-6 workers like me and really good instructors. The equipment is in good condition too. On top of that, they have the best rates I could find in the area. I'm in for the membership now. :) More...

Took Sarah's class couple weeks ago when I visiting my parents. I love her class! She made me feel so comfortable for trying Pilates for the first time! I wish I was able to go more often, but I look forward to coming back! More...

I have nothing but great things to say about Poway Pilates. The instructors here are great, knowledgeable, and professional at what they are doing. Sarah the owner is so nice and friendly. I'm new to pilates and very hesitant to come in but everyone here made me feel so welcome and motivated. Definitely recommend this awesome place to my family and friends. More...

My daughter talked me into joining her for a month of Pilates classes & so I began with concern & skepticism due to Pilates classes I had tried 7 years prior & kept getting hurt. Let's just say, I love this place & their variety of classes - I am now into my 2nd month & feel great - no injury, just leave that place feeling like I'm taller, a former ballerina (I wish) & I am smiling yet really feel a great strengthening work out! Everyone is friendly & helpful plus the vibe inside is calming, clean & comfortable. Nice to see a wide age range & co ed friendly group of people taking charge of their physical/mental health.

Love this place!!  Wish I lived closer!   I was in Poway for daughters softball tourney and picked up a class here.  Timmerrie kicked my butt!  Amazing instructor!  Studio was so clean and well organized with new equipment.  Make time to take a class here,  you will be addicted!  Sarah, the owner was so gracious and accommodating to let me come in for one class while I was in town!  Way to show great customer service!  Thank you again, I will be back for sure next time I'm in town!

Awesome way to get your body some exercise!!  Have always struggled with pain because of travel at work, weak back, etc.  Have been working with this Poway Pilates team now for a couple years and must say I feel better than have felt in decades .  If you are a little older like me and need to keep your back and body in shape.... this could be the place for you!!

I have been going to Poway Pilates for about 4 months now, and I would not be exaggerating to say it was "Love at first sight! "  I've been dealing with a back injury for over a year and I'd about given up hope that I would start to feel "normal" again.  I went from an active person who would jog or walk several miles every day to laying on a couch getting weaker by the day.  Then my husband said I should try Pilates.  I saw a groupon for Poway Pilates and it was like a sign!  Then I went in and met Sarah (the owner), took a class and the rest is history! My back still leaves me in daily pain but I feel stronger and I enjoy the workouts!  There are classes that are geared towards individuals that have back issues which help strengthen your core, arms and legs.  The classes have made such a difference in my life that I bought a year membership after a month.I love Sarah and the other women in the classes.  They're are all very supportive and friendly.  There are other classes as well but so far I've only taken Pilates.  I highly recommend Poway Pilates!  There are also pilates classes for teens which I think is great!

If your looking for a Pilates studio this is your place I promise!! More...

I started taking classes at Poway Pilates about a month ago and I could not be more pleased with this studio. The classes are fun and intimate. I just bought a 12 month membership and I am looking forward to expanding my Pilates and Barre practice here. More...

Continuing in the vein of it's either a 5 star or 1 star review for me.....Poway Pilates is a high 5 review! The classes have something to offer to every fitness level. The beginning /intermediate classes can give an athlete in great shape a hard workout while seamlessly adapting same class for newcomer or even someone who has to modify for a certain body part injury .  I love how Sarah  is able to accommodate my shoulder weakness with substitute pilates exercises while giving the strongest in the class an excellent workout. I really appreciate that Sarah does not draw too much attention to individuals while she does this.  Sarah is constantly reminding her class the correct breath pattern as well as what the proper body mechanics are for each exercise. Pilates is a whole body workout and each of the instructors are great. More...

I've been taking classes at Poway Pilates for 2 months. Several months ago, I bought Groupon vouchers for the pilates class at 3 different studios near Carmel Mountain Ranch. After I took classes, I decided to take the unlimited class at Poway Pilates. First of all, the instructors are very kind and nice, definitely professional. Each instructor has own signature style and I truly love all the classes. Actually, I didn't like any kinds of exercise but now pilates is my favorite thing and my body is getting flexible, slim, strong! More...

The BEST place to get AND stay in shape. Poway Pilates is MY place to focus, relax, challenge myself and leave smiling. This is the best place to get in shape, gain flexibility, balance and core stability. ..and it is great rehab. You also gain personal confidence! I was a runner and have many injuries but with the support of ALL the trainers my pain is minimal and I am happy and fortunate to be a member at Poway Pilates. The trainers are experts who continue to challenge you regardless if you are a beginner or advanced student. Thanks to all Poway Pilates trainers for your professionalism and always challenging me!

I love Poway Pilates and adore the instructors.  They are personable knowledgeable and change things up to keep classes fresh. The studio is basic but clean and the classes are small so you get individualized attention when you need it.   The reformer workout is fun and engages all your muscles at once with a combination of core work, strength and balance. I don't care who you are or what your fitness level is you will feel the burn and get results.  The hour goes by super fast and leaves you longing for more. More...

I love Poway Pilates! Everyone there is kind and caring. They know what they're doing and they help everyone adjust and succeed. I'm amazed at the benefits Pilates has given me already and I've only been there a little over a month. I only wish I'd  started sooner. More...

I bought the groupon for a month of classes. And I have to say, as a business owner myself, I am not a groupon lover. However, I'm so pleased my friend talked me into trying. I love Poway Pilates. I have taken different classes over the month and have to honestly say, the 5 stars are particularly for Ty. She is an amazing instructor that focuses on both the classes strengths & weaknesses with just the right resistance on the reformers. She is very personable and connects with her class. I will continue to visit this facility and look forward to getting into shape with Pilates. More...

She gives me careful instructions for my level and always happy to help with anything I need.Thank you Sarah!Dina T. More...

I am excited to start at Poway Pilates, I had a private class with Jennifer and it was complimentary. A big Plus!!  Also I really liked that Jennifer was not pushy at all.  I purchased a package and can't to get started. More...

I went to Poway Pilates when I was on in the San Diego area for work.  I took a group pilates class from Sam along with a group kettlebell class taught by Jennifer.  The classes were great and so were both Sam and Jennifer.  Both teachers were very focused on form when performing specific movements which was fantastic.  When doing any sort of functional movement its key that your form is correct such that you can (1) benefit most from the movement and (2) avoid injury.Next time I have another work trip to SD I plan on returning for sure.

Prior to coming to Poway Pilates, I may have tried one pilates class somewhere else, way back when, but was essentially a complete beginner when I came here.  I work late so I always took Jill's Monday or Wednesday classes at 6:30.  I have the flexibility of a 60yr old and was concerned I would not be able to do the exercises but Jill was very helpful and most importantly, would correct my posture/form if needed. Although it was apparent I was the newbie in each class, I never felt embarrassed and always felt great after the work out.  Unfortunately, I am currently recovering from surgery and am unable to go to classes for the time being. BTW, don't forget to spray and wipe down your equipment after class and I recommend purchasing the socks with grips (they have grips to put on the equipment if you want to go barefoot or prefer to use your own socks).  This is a great place for anyone interested in trying out reformer pilates.

I am absolutely in love with Poway Pilates! I love the pilates reformers so much, they are the best thing ever! I use to have a lot of back pain because of the type of work that I do, and this is the only thing that has ever really helped. Everyone here is so friendly, and they all really know their stuff. Jennifer is amazing at pushing you and doing some great leg work! I also love Angela as well, she is great at that pelvic floor work! I really can't say enough about this studio. It's such an amazing workout that isn't too intimidating, but still very effective. More...

I have completed 10 weeks with Poway Pilates and have just signed up for 10 more! New equipment, comfortable setting and Jennifer is a highly trained expert who is a great teacher and motivator! I have seen a big difference in my strength in just a small period of time. You will get what you are looking for in a workout at Poway Pilates. I love it! More...

I was definitely hesitant to get started but now I am completely addicted. I had fallen into a rut and needed a new exercise routine. Jennifer can really get you to push yourself harder than you think. I leave feeling refreshed and knowing I used my time well. The next day or two I know for sure that I did. Jennifer really knows her stuff and helps you focus throughout the workout. Each workout I am able to learn more and I see further muscle definition and development. Thank you Poway Pilates. More...

Jennifer is an experienced instructor who cares about your health and well being! Through private 1 hour sessions, she helped me come back from a serious arm and elbow break which required 3 hrs. of surgery and 8 months of physical therapy. I was able to continue the strengthening of my arm after the physical therapy and have been in the best shape I've ever been in my life since I started working with Jennifer 2.5 years ago! I highly recommend Poway Pilates. More...

I love Poway Pilates. I work out, and really didn't consider myself as needing any type of motivation to work out. I got in a slump and started to not have results from my own workouts any longer. I went to Poway Pilates and Jennifer is awesome! She motivates me to push myself harder and do better. I feel taller, leaner, and have so much more confidence in swimsuit season....if you know what I mean! Jennifer makes you feel comfortable, even if it's your first time, or you go every week. Small talk is great, and serious talk is great, it's all about getting that burn from the muscles that makes you look GREAT! Thank you so much Poway Pilates for making me look good in skinny jeans again!! More...

I heard from a friend that the Pilate Reformer classes reshape your body, but I was a bit skeptical until I tried Poway Pilates. Now I'm a believer! Jennifer is one of the best exercise instructors I've had because of her knowledge of the body. She tells us what we should be feeling and which muscles we should be engaging and when we should back off so we won't injure ourselves. I'm 40 something, will never look like Jennifer, but I love the class and how I feel. Another plus - you're lying down for most of the class. How cool is that! More...

I have tried all of the DVDs, classes at the gym, working out on my own, expensive personal trainers, and on and on.... Pilates Reformer beats them all. Jennifer is the icing on the cake. I love leaving there feeling refreshed and not at all as if I just worked my a$$ off... until the next day! I realize that in a very uplifting way... Jennifer has gotten me to work out muscles I didn't know I had and pushing myself further than I ""thought"" I could be pushed. I highly recommend both the instruction and the location!! More...

Not sure what the 1 star rating is about. Jennifer and all of the instructors have been nothing short of outstanding. I have tried other studios but I have fallen in love with this place, it has a much more personal feel than all the rest.
