I cannot express how happy I have been with my experience at Nancy Wallace Pilates. I started coming to Nancy Wallace Pilates in the winter of 2009 in preparation for a climb of Mt. Rainier. I had been having back issues and felt that the core strengthening exercises that Pilates demands would help me. I was lucky to connect with the owner, Nancy Wallace, who not only helped me overcome my back issues, but introduced me to a whole new form of exercise and conditioning. Having been involved in competitive athletics my entire life, my workouts have always been a way to not only stay in condition but also to push myself and compete with myself. Pilates, especially the way it is practiced at Nancy Wallace Pilates, is the perfect discipline for any athlete who wants to take their strength, conditioning, and flexibility to the next level.
Think you can just watch a workout video or go to a mat class to experience Pilates? One private or semi-private session at Nancy Wallace Pilates will prove just how wrong you are – and the results will, too. I’m constantly being adjusted or reminded to shift or squeeze or scoop, and each tiny adjustment helps me feel the exercise that much more. One last note, the fabulous instructors at Nancy Wallace Pilates can help ease back or neck pain, not just help you get a lean sexy body. My husband suffers from back pain (bad posture coupled with sitting at a desk all day) and he started coming to Pilates to help relieve some of the pain. He now goes once a week and when he skipped a couple weeks his back pain came back noticeably.
I love this place. Like, seriously love it. As a former competitive athlete, I’m always looking for a challenging workout that isn’t going to bore me. After being to other Pilates studios, I really wasn’t interested… until my chiropractor told me it would help with my chronic back problems, and then pointed me to this place. These ladies are amazing. I do a private and a semi-private lesson each week and they really listen to how I’m feeling and what I want to achieve that day. Feeling tired and tight? No problem. Want something to make me really sweat and totally re-shape my backside? No problem. Back flaring up and causing me pain? No problem. Each instructor is super knowledgeable and will push you to your limits. I work out with Misty, but I’ve worked with at least 5 different instructors in the 2 years I have been going there; all top notch. And the reviewers are right about Nancy…you’ll get the workout of your life. Try a Kangoo class with her if you’re looking for something totally new and out of the box. You won’t be sorry!
I moved to Bellevue in February and was searching for a Pilates studio that has all the major equipment. This was a struggle. I was very happy to have found Nancy Wallace Pilates. My experience has been excellent. I also have been able to work out with many of the instructors. They have all had my well being in mind as we work through the program. Knowing that I cannot do (or do not like!) certain “poses” (like the Tree on the reformer!), they offer alternatives that provide the same stretch/workout but done in different ways.
The classes that I participated in at Nancy Wallace Pilates has increased my flexibility and taken my performance to another level.
Wonderful Studio, Amazing Results. I’ve been doing Pilates on and off for almost 3 years now, but Nancy Wallace Pilates helped me get SERIOUS about it! I went from going once every couple of weeks to three times a week, and I’m addicted! The instructors are knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable. They help you figure out your trouble spots and make you power through exercises you didn’t think you could. You don’t get away with ANYTHING, and that’s a good thing!
I was impressed with these instructors as I had tendinitis knees and a tear in my shoulder. I wasn’t sure I was a candidate for this regime. They assured me that they could work around my issues and in 6 months the problems ceased I was skiing and playing golf better than ever. Now they have an incredible “stretch to win ” program that’s as good as a message.
So far it has been absolutely awesome. I did Pilates years ago, but then switched to running and personal training and started to feel…. wonky! For lack of a better word. I felt unbalanced and strong in my arms and legs, but weak in my core. I also build muscle like a crazy person and I started to feel so bulky my clothes weren’t fitting. Within two weeks of coming back to Pilates my arms and legs stopped taking over where my core should have been engaged and within 4 weeks I had leaned out and all my jeans are fitting again :). All of the instructors for core have been awesome about keeping the class moving while also giving individual attention even with 4 people in the class. Basically they are awesome and I am completely hooked on Pilates again (and never leaving this time). I am also training for a half marathon and my distance and speed have both increased with what feels like little effort because my form has improved immensely (even when I get tired I’m able to keep myself from looking like i’m flailing ). I still have work to do to get to my peak performance and fitness, but I am convinced that Pilates is the perfect workout for me and will remain a constant even if my cardio choices change. Another note too; I was a Physical Therapy student in college (changed my mind after I graduated…) but I STILL recommend Pilates over PT for both preventative exercise and reactionary.
I like the approach at Nancy Wallace Pilates – and I’m totally hooked. Great instructors focused on the classic disciplines and excellent form. They work you but you definitely get out what you put in. Nancy Wallace Pilates is now an integral part of my fitness program – the perfect complement to weight training and running/cardio. At 48, I’m in the best shape of my life – more muscle, 20 pounds lighter, faster, leaner, more flexible, better posture, more energy and no back pain. Feelin’ great – thanks, Nancy and Nancy Wallace Pilates. You all are the best.
I love this studio! It is really friendly, laid back, yet the instructors are fun and informative. I really feel comfortable here, and love the classes as well as private instructions. I’ve been here over two months now and plan on staying for a while!
