As I reflect on the one year anniversary of my first Fletcher Pilates session at Body Works Pilates™ I feel the need to comment on the significant transformation in the body I first walked in with and the one I have today. I am pain free for the first time in my life. My twisted trunk and spine have strengthened, straightened and lengthened considerably through what I consider the best physical movement therapy I have ever experienced. Add to that new core strength, the return of my waist, a flattening tummy, the disappearance of that annoying back body bulging, and enhanced overall flexibility and tone.
I celebrate this remarkable anniversary with sincere appreciation to Kyria Sabin and her excellent instructors and staff at Body Works Pilates™ for carrying on the work of Ron Fletcher in such a professional, caring, ultra personal, enjoyable atmosphere and with the purchase of new jeans, size 4 not the size 8 of last year!
Body Works Pilates™is just right for me. I started Pilates after I injured my back in a car accident and I stayed with Body Works Pilates™ because the overall flexibility and range of motion this exercise regimen provided was and continues to be remarkable! The Body Works Pilates™ instructors are very knowledgeable, capable and thoroughly professional. I am carefully guided and encouraged as I perform a variety of exercises so that I remain in great shape for a 75-year-old guy. The atmosphere of the Body Works studio and the delightful staff make my twice-a-week visits a real pleasure!
Body Works Pilates™ is a priceless environment for change. It meets all expectations of their Premier Pilates Education reputation; The environment is clean, the equipment is in superior condition, and the instructors are impeccably trained. However Body Works Pilates™ most noteworthy characteristic is their mastery of what change theorists consider the Rosetta Stone of personal transformation, the ability to develop dynamic supportive relationships with their clients. I am deeply grateful for and appreciative of these superior instructors, through their unwavering belief in my success I have learned to be at home in my own body. I relate to and with myself in ways I would never have anticipated. Thank you with all of my heart.
I want to express how absolutely wonderful Body Works is. The instructors and so many others have delivered me back to health. Also, the desk staff is always so service oriented and friendly. This studio is world class...thank you.
Body Works Pilates™has great teachers and the most exciting variety of classes found in Arizona.
I have great pride in the progress I’ve made at Body Works Pilates™, both in terms of my physical and mental well being.
I started coming to group classes at Body Works Pilates™ and they have changed my life. Every single person has shown me kindness. Classmates have taught me that everyone is different and I find myself with a sense of self-acceptance rather than comparison.
It is apparent to those of us who practice Fletcher Pilates® that it is entirely possible to completely transform our bodies. What we may not realize is how massage therapy can enhance and increase our movement experience. The massage therapists and movement teachers at Body Works Pilates™ have the knowledge to design the optimal program for you. I have experienced this first-hand and it has been of tremendous value to me.
Body Works Pilates™ will prove to you that your body, mind, and spirit are not stuck. The sense of care, thoroughness and expertise of every staff member is always fully engaged. They have guided me to a level of flexibility that I have not ever experienced and I’m always eager to return even with my busy schedule.
Each of the movement-based fitness and conditioning methods offered at Body Works Pilates™ are transforming my balance, core strength, flexibility, posture, movement awareness, mental focus, and stamina - all essential to improving my golf swing and enjoyment of the game.
The group dynamic established and nurtured in the Body Works Pilates™ group classes is brilliant. Once a group of people become regulars, they advance together. It happens in all the classes and we improve both because of our mutual support and caring for one another as well as the consistency and skill of the instructors. It is quite remarkable.
I have been a client of Body Works Pilates™ since 1993. With the help of the very professional and knowledgeable staff, I have been able to maintain a level of strength and flexibility that allows me to remain active and participate in the sports activities that make my life enjoyable.
The teacher training program at Body Works Pilates™ has enhanced my modern dance teaching techniques immensely.
I’ve done enough body work over the years to know what’s good, so when I went to Body Works Pilates™, it was a big discovery. I walk out of there feeling tremendous. It exercises you from the top of your head all the way to ends of your fingers, and it gets you into fantastic shape.
We look forward to coming to class and appreciate the beautiful environment and the small class size at Body Works.

Doug and I have relocated to Corvallis, Oregon and are searching for a pilates studio. Since we left Tucson ( this includes Silicon Valley and Santa Fe, NM), we have not found a studio that even compares with The Body Works... We thought perhaps you might know instructors coming out of your teacher training program or who have Ron Fletcher training who have relocated to either Corvallis, Albany, Salem, etc. We have made the rounds here and so far - no satisfaction. Thanks for your help.
