Westport, Connecticut

I like to think of our studio as a Classical oasis in a sea of fitness establishments. 15 years strong, Westport Pilates has gone through so much growth and change to arrive where we are today- a fully equipped Gratz Pilates studio! I believe Gratz equipment represents the world of classical Pilates and the dream of both Joseph Pilates and Romana. It is our mission to carry this work on as purely as possible and this could not be done on any other equipment.
