Hard rock abs the fun way!

I stumbled upon this find with a local school auction win; I had always wanted to try pilates. In a short series of classes, I felt a noticeable change! With a few more classes, I felt sleeker in my over-40 body! I was amazed at how much fun I was having too! Trusha and Jesse worked me hard while making me smile and laugh as the hour passed. I find myself missing the camraderie almost as much as the expert instruction. Pilates takes mental energy and the descriptive approaches given and encouragement along the way are best in class! Thank you to Cassidy and her tremendous staff! TRY THEM OUT!

The place to go for a rejuvenating experience

I absolutely love The Body Gallery. I started over a year ago having 1:1 lessons, and the instructors are incredible. After years of never stretching or being proactive in taking care of my physical body, I went to The Body gallery. Now I feel like new person. I am now ""semi flexible"" and actually like the way my body moves. The instructors are kind but push you to challenge yourself in a very positive environment.
I would highly recommend the Body gallery to anyone who wants to age gracefully..

A studio that lives up to its name

I have been going to the Body Gallery regularly since October 2007. It is a quiet, serene and cozy studio. The place lives up to its name “The art of Personalized Pilates”. My trainer, Jody, designs each session depending on how my body feels. Some days, I am stiffer (arthritis) and we do more stretching, some days I feel great and she works me out! I always feel like I am her only client, that’s how focused on me she is. As a result of my weekly visits, my body is much stronger, more flexible and looks a lot better. My arms and legs have long, strong muscles, my abs are finally getting strong! I have never liked exercise and now, I cannot live without my Pilates session. I joke that I feel just as good after Pilates than I do after a massage! I highly recommend the Body Gallery to anyone looking for personalized training.

One of the best...and I should know

I've studied Pilates for 11 years and have had more than 18 instructors in the US, Canada and France, so I know what makes a great teacher. Cassidy Moore, owner of the Body Gallery and my current instructor since December 2008, is one of the very few outstanding teachers I have had the pleasure to work with. Cassidy takes her work seriously. I am interested in the nuances of the Pilates method, not a mindless workout, and she provides the rigor that I require. She is the only teacher I've studied with who methodically builds a session to culminate in an advanced or super-advanced Pilates exercise. She does this by having me perform exercises during the hour that are components of, and lead up to, the ""big one"". When it is time to perform the advanced move, I understand it in my body and am able to perform with grace, control, and precision.
This is the quietest studio I have ever worked out in: there is always jazz, classical or other lovely music in the background, paintings or drawings from up and coming artists on the walls and sunlight streaming in through the curtains. Since there is at most one other trainer working with a client at the same time, one can really concentrate on the work at hand. It is a wonderful space made even more special by the quality of the instruction -- the studio really lives up to its title: The Art of Personalize Pilates.

Amazing Pilates Studio!

This small studio does one thing, and they do it incredibly well. I highly recommend The Body Gallery for Pilates training, whether you are beginner or have been training for years. I had the wonderful good fortune to win a gift certificate for one session at The Body Gallery in a drawing. That was almost 18 months ago, and I am hooked! The trainers are incredibly skilled, and also fun and friendly. I've been working with Kamryn for quite awhile, and she is fabulous! I've also trained with a number of the other instructors, and they are all wonderful.

One of my favorite things about The Body Gallery is the comfortable, private setting. As someone who looks nothing like a dancer or hard-core athlete of any sort, I always feel completely at ease there. I feel they are happy to have me there and eager to help me make progress towards my personal fitness goals. They are very responsive to adjusting or adapting different exercises to make sure it works for me, which I greatly appreciate.

The wonderful people and comfortable environment at The Body Gallery are what?s kept me coming back for so long!

Dedicated, well-trained pilates experts

I've been a client at the Body Gallery since 2002 and have had great experiences with all their trainers. The studio is a very quiet, calm space and all the trainers really know what they're doing. I had some major dance injuries and pilates has almost completely eliminated the pain from the injuries.

Best Pilates in SF

I took Pilates in Atlanta for 2 years and 1 year at another SF studio before I was fortunate enough to find the Body Gallery. It is an oasis - the surroundings relaxing and the workouts refreshing and energizing. My instructors are better than I've found anywhere, personalized and specific to what I desire to get out of each session. I am a skier, surfer, and tri-athlete so at times, they are pushing me the distance to train and work parts of my body that need it for these sports. They have also been my champions in getting my strength back after knee surgery last year. My body and my spirit have benefitted exponentially through Pilates and I wouldn't trade my instructors, Sonya and Trusha, for anyone. They're both AWESOME, but I think all of the trainers there are wonderful. Cheers to this oasis in the city!

best pilates studio in SF

I would like to call it my little slice of pilates heaven. Definately deserves a title of ""the best kept secret"" in the city, I work with the owner of the studio Cassidy who is extremely skilled and an absolute pleasure to work with. Cassidy bring a delicate balance of professionalism and warmth unlike I have ever seen. I started with pilates because I had an alinging back condition, she not only works with me at every step of the way to rehabilitate my back but improve overall muscle tone. I highly recommened body gallery to any one who iis looking of one on one pilates.

The Body Gallery, a great place to practice pilates

In 2001 I was being treated for a shoulder injury. When the problem didn't respond to either physical therapy or chiropractic my doctor recommended Pilates to strengthen the related muscles. He said that the carefully supervised workouts would help prevent re-injury to the area. Within weeks I noticed improvement and the problem eventually resolved completely. I found that the meditative atmosphere and intelligent instruction at the Body Gallery were just what I needed to recover and enjoy continued training. Pilates has helped me to become stronger and more flexible. I love the sessions.

I love The Body Gallery!

I will be forever grateful to the friend who recommended The Body Gallery to me. It is the first exercise program I have ever stayed with (after decades of trying it all). Pilates is physically and mentally challenging but leaves you feeling absolutely invigorated and focused. The trainers are thoroughly knowledgeable, positive and encouraging, and delightful to know. There is so much learn and gain from PIlates, and The Body Gallery provides first-rate instruction in a very pleasant, professional environment.

Be treated like a princess (or prince)! Get one on one Pilates training!

I love this place -- the location, the feel, the decor -- and all the trainers are way above par. I have especially enjoyed working with Cassidy Moore, the owner. She really listens to what you need, what your body needs, and she'll help you work what needs to be worked, adapting and adjusting the routine as your body changes. Their equipment is top of the line, too. Highly recommended.

Dedicated trainers in a feel good environment

I had never done Pilates before. I was surprised to discover how personal and challenging the workout was. My trainer really got to know my strengths so I can work on overcoming my weaknesses. I look forward to going to my workouts in a peaceful environment.


P.S. The art is great too!

best pilates

I have been going to classes at the body gallery for over six years. I started due to some back pain from excess travel and a knee injury from tennis. I have had no injuries since and still do a lot of the same activities. The team has been with me through many life changes including marriage and children. I really do feel like it has been them with me along the way. We prepared for the wedding dress and later kept me in shape while I grew, and grew, with my first child. I felt confident and stress-free for the entire pregnancy thanks to several workouts a week stressing safety for mom and child while I continued to get a great workout. The team was there again and flexible around this new mom's schedule when I was ready to get back to my old clothes. While understanding my new limits, they never stopped encouraging and pushing me to dig a little deeper. While I never pictured myself as someone who would enjoy the gym workout versus outdoor pursuits and like a good workout, not a bunch of stretching, I love going to the body gallery. I work hard, get gently pushed to my limits and cannot wait to come back for more. It is hard work, just ask some of the fellows there. I leave feeling refreshed and fulfilled that is was time very well spent. I have been converted. From a runner and biker to a pilates devotee. FYI - the strength I have gained from pilates helps than running, skiing and biking a lot too as well as some pretty heavy toddler lifting.

Great Place!

The Body Gallery is a great place! In my search for a pilates studio I was so lucky to find the Body Gallery. The small one room studio is beautifully designed, always has calm music playing, and so inviting. The personal trainer Cassidy Moore is incredible she walks you through each exercise, she is so patient, caring, and knowledgeable. After always struggling with flexibility I finally feel as though I have found help! When I walk out of my one hour pilates session I feel relaxed, stronger, and stretched from head to toe.

The Body Gallery is Super Great!!!!!!

I hate exercising! That having been said....I absolutely love, love, love working with owner/trainer Cassidy Moore. Her patience and vast knowledge of proper technique inspires me to keep retuning to the Body Gallery even though I hate to exercise. The difference in my flexibility post session is remarkable. I could definitely not reproduce these results on my own.
Cassidy and her staff will make you feel like a million bucks!

You will feel energized and stronger afer your first workout.

Love the Body Gallery

I have been going to the body gallery for over 2yrs and I love the trainers and the atmosphere! It is a peaceful studio where you can get a really great pilates workout from smart, highly trained, incredible trainers. It is a serious studio but the people don't take themselves too seriously. I love this place and have found it to be the only workout place I have ever wanted to be this consistent.

highly recommended pilates instructions

FEELING INCREDIBLE!

The instructors at the body gallery are amazing. It is a great place to lose weight, tone up, improve your posture and cure your back problems. The studio is very serene and relaxing and the instructors are extremely skilled. I work out with Cassedy and Jodi and I can't say enough great things about them.

You have to try it. It is a life changing experience.
