In December of 2011, I decided to challenge myself by taking part in one of Kyla’s famous but daunting Fitness Challenges.  I knew I was at an unhealthy weight and had to do something to make a positive change for my life.   When I first met Kyla and her amazing team of fitness professionals, I did not know how much she and they would change my life!

From the start of the fitness challenge, I could see how educated Kyla and her team are when it comes to health and fitness. Their passion for fitness was so evident and contagious. From day 1, Kyla and her amazing instructors helped to guide and educate me on my fitness journey, giving me the mental toughness and tools to push myself to reach my goals and even exceed them!   I started out hoping to lose a few pounds and a few inches but after the initial 3 week challenge, I had lost 25.5” and 13 pounds!  These results truly amazed me and were the result of the healthier eating, nutrition guidelines, mentoring, coaching and targeted exercises that Kyla and her knowledgeable staff shared with me.

It is now a year and a half later and I continue to go to many of the different classes offered by Fit Bodies. Fit Minds. and I absolutely love them!  One of the reasons I continue to go is because of the variety of classes offered and the fact that the staff is so knowledgeable.  They genuinely care about clients making sure that proper form is used but also that you challenge yourself.   I am definitely a client for life and would highly recommend Fit Bodies Fit Minds to anyone wanting to get fit physically and mentally which is just as important.  I am pleased to say that after a year and a half, I am now 51 pounds lighter and I went from a size 14/16 to a size 6 or even a 4 sometimes!    I am in the best shape I have ever been in!  These results are because of what I have learned from the team at Fit Bodies Fit Minds, plus a little hard work and determination!  It’s not just the numbers that have made me a Fit Bodies. Fit Minds. “lifer,” it’s also the fact that I feel mentally more fit too and that is because of the positive atmosphere created by the team at Fit Bodies. Fit Minds.!!   Give them a try!

“Five years into ‘Pilates For Me’ classes, I continue to be pushed to my limits with the always changing routines.  I feel my physical, core strength and balance have all greatly improved.  Kyla and her staff always manage to create different challenges for me and keep the classes interesting.  I truly look forward to attending classes every week.”

My husband Rich has always been into fitness so to introduce him to Pilates I suggested we try the Couples class.  Well, three years later this is what he has to say about it!  “I love Pilates.  It’s a great full body workout, especially for your core.  It has really helped prepare me for golf because my core strength has improved so much.”  The classes are a lot of fun with great instructors.  We both look forward to going every week.”

I have attended classes several times a week for years and LOVE it !!!   My favourites are the Pilates and the Yoga!  I have, however, also done the Boot camp and the running group.  The instructors are top notch, very caring and I consider them friends.  I feel they push me enough to make the workout challenging but are very conscious of form to avoid injuries.  They also have a great schedule that allows me to get my workouts done at a convenient time.  You can find me at the studio several days a week  at lunch time.

In the spring of 2012 I was recovering from a major illness and went to Pilates for Me for a fitness assessment.  I met Tiffany and Kyla and they got me started on a fitness program including diet, aerobic exercise and regular Pilates classes.  I have found both of them to be very motivating and inspiring in their approach to fitness.

This was the catalyst to better health for me, as I lost weight and virtually eliminated my chronic back pain.  My mobility and flexibility have significantly improved as well.  I eat heathier, exercise regularly and I am more active today than I have been in years.

My personal training program with Kyla targeted my specific needs and this has helped my posture noticeably.  I continue to attend Pilates classes several times a week and fitness has become an important part of my life.

Thank you to Kyla, Tiffany and all the Trainers,

I was introduced to Pilates by a friend who recommended Pilates for Me in June of 2007 and by the end of my first six-week session I had become a Pilates devotee for life. One class per week soon became not enough and eventually I was taking five classes per week. I benefited tremendously from the Pilates for Me instructors’ professional training, expertise, motivation, and especially, their sense of fun. With their encouragement, I moved from Basic to Intermediate and eventually gained the confidence to attempt Pilates for Strength. Not having been physically fit prior to this was not a deterrent. I improved my fitness level gradually and my overall sense of physical well-being and confidence grew. One of the highlights of my Pilates for Me experience was the Running Group that I participated in the spring of 2010. It was a wonderful experience! Each participant had her own goal – from 5 km runs to half-marathons. My goal was the May 2010 Half-Marathon in Buffalo  The 10-week running program prepared me for the gruelling 21 km. distance and the core training provided by the Pilates class made it all possible.

I will never forget the camaraderie and motivation that the Pilates for Me instructors and running group provided and would unequivocally recommend it to anyone wanting to challenge themselves. I continue to take Pilates classes to this day and also enjoy the yoga classes that are offered. The professionalism of the instructors at Pilates for Me is second to none and I have truly loved and benefited from the overall experience.

My fitness has advanced over the numerous years that I have trained at Kyla’s studio.  My core strength, stability and balance are continually developing by training here.  The small class sizes allow for more personalized attention and permit me to learn and perform the exercises in correct form, which enhances my training.  There are numerous types of classes that challenge my body and maintain my interest.  I have enjoyed all the instructors because they are friendly professionals who are well trained and knowledgeable.

Within the last year, I have begun personal training with Kyla to resolve some muscular problems.  My arches of my feet had collapsed causing foot pain and the need to wear orthotics for relief.  Now I can participate in pilates classes bare foot without pain.  My balance, without shoes, has returned to what it was during my teenage years.  With Kyla’s help, I am working through a long-term repetitive injury, which had affected my daily activities.  I have experienced notable improvement already.  To resolve injuries while continuing to exercise is wonderful.  To improve my strength, balance, flexibility, and muscle balance at the same time is a testament to the skill and knowledge of Kyla and her team of instructors.

Thank you for all your help these past few months.  What I thought would be some changes to my exercise plan turned more into a lifestyle change. I appreciate that you took the time not only to recommend a change in diet, but also the time to help me select foods to substitute and/or add into my diet to make the changes as simple as possible.  Each time I read another article about diet and autoimmune disease or talk to someone else who has seen positive changes in their disease because of a change to their diet, I am thankful we crossed paths and you were there to help me.  Never thought I could make such a mean chocolate cake from ground almonds, dates, a few eggs and a bit of cocoa!  Anyway, thank you again for being such a positive and inspiring person.
