Client Testimonials

"I have been at Performance Pilates for several years and like the professional way the studio is run. Performance Pilates has made a huge difference to my physical well being, my posture has improved significantly and I have become more body aware. The classes are up to four people so the attention is very personal and friendly." - Rosemary, September 2016

“My relationship with Ellena Conland and Performance Pilates goes back over 10 years.  I've tried pilates in other settings and with a variety of instructors over the years but I've always found Ellena and her team to be the best.  They take great care to identify what my needs are and ensure that the exercises and equipment I use are tailored to meet those needs.  Whether it's in a mat class or a studio session I know I'll be guaranteed individual attention as I improve my strength, flexibility and body tone.  I always feel lighter and taller after a session there and I enjoy the company of the smaller groups and classes compared with larger providers.” Karen, August 2015

I love Performance Pilates! I have been attending classes for two years now, and feel 10 years younger. It's a great experience to work with intelligent, skilled instructors such as Ellena and Kim. Susan, November 2015
