Small Group Classes
At Movement Unlimited, small groups mean you are never lost in a crowd. You get the benefit of training with others while still receiving attention and support from the teacher on an individual level. It’s a personalized practice in a group setting that still allows you to achieve your goals and maximize your results.
Private, one-on-one Personal Training
A private training session is your opportunity to understand how your body moves and what adjustments can enhance your progress. Our teachers customize each session and evaluate your progress regularly so you are always moving toward success.
Our collaborative approach to programming allows you to work with us whether you are actively having treatment with a practitioner or whether you have finished treatment and are focusing on maximizing your recovery.

The Benefits of Pilates
Increase Your Mobility & Flexibility
Moving with ease is an essential part of your health. Joseph Pilates said “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”
Resistance training comes in many forms and the Pilates apparatus will provide a strengthening experience like no other you’ve ever felt. Connect with your deeper muscles while developing an integrated, whole body approach that can only be achieved in a Pilates studio.
Improve Your Core Connection
Core training is so much more than abdominal strengthening and our goal is to assist you in optimizing your core function using a research based approach to health core conditioning.
Restore Your Alignment & Posture
Our teachers will educate you about posture and alignment and how it influences your health, maximizes your performance and can be integrated into any fitness or movement program.
Enhance Your Sport
Pilates is used every day by professional athletes to enhance their strength, mobility and control Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an amature sport enthusiast, our teachers will design a program to help you excel at your game.
Balance Your Mind and Body

"I have worked with Emily for over a year now most recently on Zoom. She is a treasure. She is patient, understanding and always has a sense of when I have done enough. She is the best and I recommend her highly. Emily and Movement Unlimited are two of the reasons that I have thrived in Covid times."
"Allison is top notch and a leader in the fitness community. She provides high quality service!"
"I joined 5 years ago as a birthday present to myself. I was a little insecure at first, but the instructors made me feel right at home. The gave me confidence and flexibility. As I always say "it is as good for my soul as it is for my body". I feel better than ever, and I always look forward to the next class. Best birthday present ever!"
"Amazing studio and trainers. I have been doing Reformer Pilates and I can't believe how much better I feel after only 4 weeks."
"Allison is extremely knowledgeable and a leader in the industry. Great studio!"
"Great, qualified trainers that focus on helping each individual even in a group setting. Excellent for personal workout or rehab injury."
"As a Trauma Nurse who has spent 29 years taking care of everyone else, it was very evident that I had neglected taking care of myself. A few bulging discs later, nerve compression, acute pain and admission of defeat led me to Movement Unlimited. I never imagined Pilates would be the answer, but I soon learned that it offered way more then I could ever hope for. Allison’s knowledge, skill and perseverance have paid off! She has not only made my core much stronger, but taught me how to pay attention to my body, my movements, my posture, to recognize when I overcompensate and when I need to
ask for assistance ( hard for us nurses). With a few years left to go in my career, I feel much more equipped physically to meet the high demands of my career, and enjoy a healthy active life after! Thanks Allison!"
"After first having the doctor tell me my blood pressure was extremely high and then followed by a breast cancer diagnosis, I knew I needed to change my lifestyle. I truly enjoy Pilates and never knew I could do it. Emily and Sydney always keep me motivated and challenged. I feel better every time I leave and it kept my blood moving while going through chemo treatments. I highly recommend this studio for anyone; it's like being in your own home. Everyone is welcoming and friendly."
