The Providence Pilates Center
We are a Pilates/fitness studio that provides a warm, welcoming environment and encourages the entire community to discover the benefits of Pilates. According to Joseph Pilates, the Pilates exercise routine will ‘help develop the body uniformly; correct postural misalignments; restore physical vitality and invigorate the mind’. Our goal is to help our clients meet their goals for fitness, health and well being in our fully equipped, Pilates and fitness studios.
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.
Providence Pilates Center offers Power Pilates teacher-trainer certifications. Cheryl Turnquist, owner of Providence Pilates, received her certification as a Teacher Trainer for Power Pilates in 2012. She teaches students to become instructors throughout the New England Region. As a result, we are a Power Pilates and a VBarre Host training facility. Many of our instructors are certified through Power Pilates.
