After researching and sampling other Pilates classes, I feel very lucky to have found Kim. Her solid background of advanced Pilates training (including certification to train teachers) as well as her prior career as a biology teacher make her uniquely knowledgeable. She is skilled in providing just the right cues when a new exercise isn't immediately intuitive. Kim also has gone above and beyond expectations when it comes to customer service - meeting clients evenings or very early in the morning and accessible many days of the week. Pilates has helped me gain strength, flexibility, and improved my balance. It has enhanced my stamina and energy and promoted a sense of well-being. I think I've gained confidence, better posture, and sleep better also!
Kimberly is without any doubt the best Classical Pilates mat instructor I have had in the past three years. This comment is based on a sample of over twelve Pilates instructors. I am still in Classical Pilates because of her technical, creative, and natural abilities to teach this art to me.
Pilates started out as a random New Year's resolution that was thrown quickly into place once I found Powerhouse Pilates 3 weeks into 2014. I had never taken a class, knew nothing about it, but had convinced myself to give it a shot. I'm 10 weeks in and hooked. I enjoy the variety of exercises and the complement to my cardio workouts. The first thing I noticed was improved posture. I've had chronic lower back problems since I was a kid, and Pilates does not aggravate my back at all, which often is the case for me when trying a new form of exercise. I expect as I continue to train with Kimberly my core strength will improve which will certainly help my back. I look forward to seeing continued positive results from a toning and overall strength perspective too.

Kim is a fabulous Pilates instructor. Being a dancer, yoga instructor, and fellow Pilates instructor myself, I turned to Kim while pregnant with my second child. I needed something special for me and was so grateful to find Powerhouse Pilates. She gave me wonderful modifications and still kept me working hard every session. It was a great pregnancy and felt awesome to stay strong and connected to my core the whole time!
I can't tell you how much better I feel since starting to do Pilates with Kim! All of the aches and pains I was attributing to "aging" have miraculously disappeared! I feel like I stand differently, and my posture has definitely improved. My headaches are gone, and I'm a believer!
Kim is an excellent Pilates instructor. I first started taking lessons with Kim after my back surgery. I was nervous to try any exercise but felt totally safe in Kim's hands. Her attention to detail is amazing. Kim helped me feel confident and strong again.

I have found Powerhouse Pilates small group mat classes superlative in many ways. First, the instructor develops each session by incorporating a broad variety of exercises so that each class feels new and challenging. Second, to enhance the feeling of newness, Kimberly will use props including weighted balls, magic circles, or rollers that allow her to incorporate new challenges for the students. Third, in the small classes she is aware of her students' strengths and weaknesses. With this awareness, she plans exercises that will allow students to succeed and grow. Finally, the prompts she gives are complete and informative clues that enable students to succeed to the best of their abilities that day. I have learned a lot from her over the past few years and still find the exercises challenging and interesting.
I have really enjoyed this experience, and Pilates continues to improve my tennis game.
I slept through the night last night for the first time in over a year! I have to believe it's because of your class! Thank you so much!
