Such a Find Here in Palm Harbor

This Pilates studio is awesome and is such a find here in Palm Harbor Florida. The equipment is varied and tons of it and the instructors are top. I am a retired Pilates instructor and this is one of the best studios I have seen. I would mark it among the best. The staff are very customer orientated and helpful. They go the distance to help you no matter what- even a rather picky customer like me.

I Have Never Felt Better!

Suncoast Pilates has the friendliest staff and is a clean, fully equipped studio. Patricia the owner is warm and welcoming, where you feel at home from the minute you walk through the door. There is so much variety from different equipment, to private or group classes. Since starting at Suncoast Pilates, it has helped my back issues immensely and I have never felt better! Highly recommend!

Already Looking Forward To The Next Time

Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the training I attended Friday and Saturday, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment and am so glad that I was there. I learned so much and have already been to my studio this morning to work on several things from the training and am excited to share them with my clients this week. I am already looking forward to thenext time I can come which is hopefully in January for the barrel training.I should also mention that the girls and staff at your studio were very friendly and so pleasant to be around and I can tell that you have a special relationship with them all which is so nice to have and also creates a positive vibe to your studio.
