I've been a member since Jan 12, 2014 and absolutely love it. I love that the Pilates Room seems to always evolve, I never get bored because every class offers something unique and I am always surprised how much variety of exercises there are.
I noticed my well being is greatly improved mentally as well as physically.
Pilates allows my body for optimal functioning and makes me feel toned, lean, strong and fit. Even going on an 8 mile hike was fairly easy or hiking down a steep hill to get to the beach is easily accomplished. I also like the variety of instructors, everyone offers something special and fun. Of course I have my favorites but not just one which is a great sign. I am also locked into a great rate since I have been a long term loyal member. To me Pilates is a life saver and huge improver. My muscles get a complete all around workout and you get to chose how intense you want to do it even. Just ask the instructor how to intensify or lighten up the intensity. Often they mention options which I love.
Merilee, originally from Seattle, WA, moved to San Diego after graduating from Seattle University with a degree in Marketing. After years of gazing down at the computer, stress and fatigue she started to develop lower back issues. A friend took her to a Pilates class and she was hooked instantly. Her pain started disappearing and soon it was gone completely. Pilates had changed Merilee’s life, and she knew that she had to use the energy she got from her new practice to help other people suffering as well.
Merilee has been working as an instructor at the Pilates Room since January of 2017. In January 2019, she received STOTT Pilates Recognition of Certification for Matwork & Reformer. She currently taking the required continuing education courses annually to maintain this certification.
