“By incorporating my years of research and thousands of hours of training experience, I now teach a fluid system of core stability training that includes resistance, flexibility and postural protocols. This evolution is The Pilates North® system of exercise, a methodology that is founded on a deep understanding of the whole body and is suitable for any fitness level. The workouts are challenging and safe and will continue to evolve as our clients grow and as new research unfolds.
With this evolution, Pilates North has become one of the busiest studios in North America and the clients who attend the Studio to benefit from my progressive method of Pilates exercise include – NHL players – Olympic medalists – Media personalities – ISU World Figure Skating Championship competitors – and junior & senior Skate Canada competitors. Right along side them; we have clients with neuromuscular disorders, rehabilitation clients, pregnant mothers, and seniors.
Over the past 20 years we have inspired 30+ clients to further their training by becoming certified Pilates instructors. And in 2012, by demand, I offered the first Pilates North Comprehensive Certification. Our studio is staffed with instructors who who have helped deliver my exercise philosophy to thousands of satisfied clients. Their empathy and willingness to learn and grow make them an integral part of the studio’s success and reputation. Whether you are interested in attending classes or becoming a trainer, I encourage you to “come feel the difference!”
It’s been 4 years since I started training with Lisa. Her workouts and body treatments have become an important part of my off-ice training. She always seems to come up with new and challenging workouts to keep me at the top of my game. It’s as if she can read my body and know exactly what I need each time I come in. Thanks Lisa and Pilates North you guys are the best!
I love Lisa and her classes! A skating coach told me about Pilates North 4 yrs ago and I have been a regular ever since. I trust Lisa and respect her knowledge and expertise. The fitness that we develope in her classes is the foundation that I build all my other sports (skating, running, swimming, golf) upon. Let’s face it, as we get older it gets harder on the body to be physically active. Her classes keep my body balanced and strong so that I can continue to pursue an active, athletic lifestyle.
Pliates North, Lisa Schklar and her trainers have truly changed my life! When I first started going 10 years ago I had trigger points in my lower back from too much business travel. Pilates North quickly got rid of my trigger points and improved my posture immensely. It’s as if I grew a couple of inches and I’m now pain free! Pilates North provides the best total mind and body workouts!.
I had never done Pilates and wanted to give it a try. I wanted to find a studio where instructors were both keenly aware of proper form and motivating. From the moment I walked into Pilates North I felt welcome and knew I was in good hands. The staff are fabulous, the warm ambiance is felt by the clients, and I feel stronger and more flexible. Thank you Pilates North.
I have been attending classes at Pilates North for the past 6 years. Pilates is a real mind/body workout that has toned my muscles and strengthened my core. I feel healthy flexible and stronger. Lisa and Rachel have created a warm and inviting studio that has encouraged me to remain dedicated to Pilates. Thank you…..
