The best!

I have been seeing Lisa for 7 months to help improve my posture and core strength, and I am already so thrilled with the results. I have noticed changes in both posture and strength that I was never able to achieve through other forms of exercise (despite working out regularly for years). I genuinely look forward to my sessions with Lisa and completely echo what the previous reviewer said about great conversation! Lisa makes sure to thoroughly tailor each session to my body's specific needs and limitations, taking into account any injuries or goals I might have. I can't recommend her enough!

Superlative

I came to Lisa with no previous Pilates experience, and a mostly sedentary lifestyle, with a lot of sitting in front of a computer. Lisa is remarkably knowledgeable and patient. She has an incredible repertoire of teaching techniques; when something didn't click for me at first, she would eventually figure out how to accommodate my somewhat 'cerebral' approach to exercise, which I appreciated immensely. She really adapts to the student, which is a rare and priceless trait to find in an instructor! I noticed quite a diverse clientele, in terms of gender, age, and fitness level -- dispelling some of my preconceptions about "who does Pilates". Highly recommended.

the best in New York?

One of the great things about living in NYC is that you have access to people who truly excel within their profession. I am reminded of this every time I work out with Lisa. You would be hard pressed to find another instructor anywhere with the combination of consummate knowledge and careful, skilled instruction she brings to every session. She is so highly sought after for a reason. If you can find an open spot, count yourself lucky, and then never let it go.

Extraordinary Experience.

I cannot recommend Lisa Jones more highly. She is not only the most competent pilates instructor I have ever had, but she is an incredibly professional and kind person. Even on those days when you don't feel up to par, Lisa's encouragement, enthusiasm and positive outlook are inspiring. You feel that every session is perfectly focused and tailored to your individual needs and strengths. She is simply the best.

Would follow her anywhere

When I first started working with Lisa she was an instructor at Clay. After over a year of working with her, she opened up her own studio (which you can see is amazing). I still had several sessions left at Clay, but refused to see anyone else there. Lisa is an amazing teacher who will push you to your limits with new and challenging exercises during every session, but will always reward you with an exercise you like at the end. I look forward to my weekly workouts with her, and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great workout with amazing results (and good conversation).

I have been working with Lisa for four years now and I have nothing but positive things to say about her classes. She is an amazing, patient teacher and my body has never been in better shape. Lisa's classes are fun and in many ways therapeutic. I would highly recommend her.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
