I am 73 years young thanks to my Pilates practice which I have been doing for over 4 years. I found out about 5 years ago that I had osteoporosis. Since doing Pilates and taking natural supplementation, from Vitality Method, my bone density increased by 6% then 8%.I will have another bone scan in January '08 and will post the results. This type of exercise is the only thing, except for my walking, that I have thoroughly enjoyed and kept it up.
was first introduced to Pilates when she was just 12 years old, at her local
ballet studio. She then went on to dance with Houston Ballet when she was 15 as
well as trained at Washington Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and Atlanta Ballet.
From the rigors of being a professional ballerina Leighton has gone through four
major injuries. However she truly believes Vitality Method, and Pilates in general,
helped keep her in shape, as well as get her strengthen back up.
Wonderful pilates!!!!!!! The pilates classes with Joel Crosby and Dominque Nero are great - it's the only class that is over before you know it! And you want more! Aysa's massages are great! It's a one-stop shop for health and fitness!
I have worked with Joel Crosby for over 3 years. When I started Pilates I was about as flexible as a steel beam and really out of shape. I have made considerable progress with my flexibility, core strength, and balance. Pilates has become an important part of my week that I will not miss. It has radically changed my physical capabilities and improved my life. Great facilities, enthusiastic instructors and reasonably priced !
As a dancer, Joel's Vitality Method Studio, has been the perfect place for me to enhance the training of my body's strength, power, and flexibility. His Pilates mat classes help me tone and shape up my whole body while building up my core strength (which is vital in dancing). My favorite classes are Joel's athletic performance training classes. I know I'm going to have a successful cardio workout while gaining lean muscle and increasing my stamina. Our bodies are the house we live in, and Joel knows best what to do in order to stay healthy and achieve the tone body we all want! Joel's Vitality Method has greatly improved my progress in the Latin Ballroom competitions I compete in; working with me to increase my balance, and power up my leg muscles. My endurance has improved so I can survive dance round, after dance round!"

For this woman who suffers from fibromyalgia, Vitality Method Pilates has been a life-saver! I've been taking reformer classes since the fall of 2005 and I find my flare-ups are now few and far between. No doubt the stretching and strengthening of muscles is one reason for my relief. The other reason for my relief is the release of stress that the exercise provides. I find, too, that Pilates has strengthened my muscles so I rarely hurt my back or pull muscles when working in the yard or doing other physical labor. That surely is a nice change! Joel Crosby is exceptional in his knowledge of how the body works and the Pilates method. He has a gently encouraging attitude that makes you believe "you can do it!"
Healthy and Happy :-) I knew this was the right place for me from the minute I walked in...calm and focused. The entire staff is incredibly knowledgable and genuinely concerned about your health and well being. After suffering for many years from chronic back pain, I now see light at the end of the tunnel! I feel like a new person and look forward to each and every session.
wonderful pilates studio This is a great Pilates studio where the staff really know what they are doing and truly care about their clients. The studio also offers massages, nutrition consults, stretching, and mat classes. They are truly great Pilates instructors!!
Ann has "Returned to Life" from following the Pilates method
"I am a 53 year old Chinese-American woman. I've been living in the US for 24 years. Exercise and fitness has not been an important part of my life. About 5 or 6 years ago, I started feeling pain in my lower back and knees. My Orthopedics recommended fusion for spondylolisthesis. Wanting to avoid that, I tried back bracing, chiropractors, laxity, acupuncture, etc, yet the pain continued to worsen.
Eventually, I had to give up things I enjoyed, like cooking, travel and tennis because of the pain. It got to the point this summer when I couldn't walk straight without pain. I'd wake up with pain and it would stay with me for the whole day. I finally decided to have the bone fusion surgery on July 26th, but because of a contract dispute between the hospital and our insurance company, my surgery had to be postponed.
While I was waiting for my surgery to be rescheduled a good friend of mine encouraged me to contact Joel Crosby at his Pilates studio to set up a 30-minute private lesson. I started working with Joel on July 19, 2006. I work with Joel two or three times a week and following each session I have a massage with Aysha Treadwell. An amazing thing happened on the morning of August 12, 2006 --I woke up without pain for the first time in many months. I got out of bed like a normal person. Since then I continue to improve and am able to regain some of my life back. Now I'm hopeful of avoiding surgery altogether. I am so thankful for the capable and professional services of Joel Crosby, and Aysha Treadwell. They have truly given me better health and hope for the future."
"I have been working out for several years with trainers doing weights, boxing, cardio and all of the typical methods we know. Five years ago I was diagnosed with scoliosis of my lower spine and surgery was recommended. After many different trials and errors and no surgery, I learned to live with the pain, but continued my regimen of exercise. This summer my condition worsened and I needed to change something. I decided to give Pilates a try. I immediately loved it and I was hooked. Within a few lessons I felt taller and straighter that I had been in years. My flexibility has increased ten fold and my pain has lessened. I cannot begin to sing the praises loud enough. I am now doing Pilates 4 times a week and look forward to every class. Not only am I better physically but mentally as well. I lost inches in areas I never thought I would. My stomach is working on a 6 pack and I am 57 years old. Joel is an inspiration and mentor. His caring and encouraging personality was evident from the first class. His love of Pilates is genuine and his graceful moves have made me a follower for life! It is an ageless form of exercise that has no limits and can accommodate anyone."
Great studio! Incredible instructors!
Wonderful atmosphere and the most friendly and experienced instructors you'll find anywhere. Dominique is truly dedicated to each of her clients, their health and accomplishment of their fitness goals.
Awesome Pilates Studio! And more!
Amazing Pilates studio that offers both private and small group lessons. They also have exercise balls, kettlebells, rope climbing, rings and more. Infrared sauna, ionic foot baths, gravity chair. I can't wait to take the Saturday morning 7am boot camp type class with Joel. Dominque is an amazing Piliates instructor! When you walk in you will notice the wonderful smell in the studio. I wish they were a bit closer to Peachtree Corner!
