Build your body, mind, and community.

In 2001, Cheryl started Providence Pilates Center. Over the years, the studio has grown from a single instructor facility to nine instructors, from one space to two studios and greatly increased availability. We offer a wide variety of classes to ensure that there is something for everyone. From reformer classes to mat to barre and spin, there is strengthening, cardio and stretching to give you a complete, total body workout. Our instructors are all certified by a 600 hour certifying program where they are trained on all pieces of apparatus and skilled in dealing with all kinds of physical issues that are presented to us. Our spin, barre, and TRX instructors have all certified in their respective disciplines and many of us have multiple certifications and professional affiliations.
