Denis Sychev, Owner and Trainer
Practice Makes Perfect, Pilates PMP
Denis Sychev opened Pilates PMP, a studio of personal training, in December 2015 in the very heart of Moscow. Pilates PMP combines innovational technologies and natural materials, yet retaining the authentic approach. The name of the studio reflects its philosophy: Practice Makes Perfect. The main purpose of the Studio is to put across to its clients the deep, subtle and at the same time accepting philosophy of pilates. Our mission is also to instill values of pilates, which will help to become aware of infinite possibilities of one’s body and mind.
The founder of the Studio, Denis Sychev, is a professional choreographer, certified trainer, Romana’s Pilates school’s graduate. “Pilates appeared in my life just out of the blue but at the right time”, Denis says. “The ballet background with vigorous exercises and intensive physical activity gifted me with loads of problems with both knees and low back, resulting in such severe pains that I could barely sleep. Today, I can freely admit that Pilates can positively change sensations in your body and the way you feel your body, filling your life with lightness, peace and ease”.
Denis is an expert in classic Pilates and a successful personal trainer, constantly practicing in the best studios in the USA, Spain, France and the Netherlands. Denis used to work in various fitness centers in Moscow. However, he believes it’s quite difficult to immerse in pilates in fitness or wellness clubs. To Denis, people go to the gym and do pilates as an extra activity. Thus, he came up with an idea to create his own space and fill it with his experience.
Pilates PMP is fully equipped with Gratz apparatus. Gratz equipment is exceptional, helping to evenly spread load on the body and reforming it rather than adjusting to it. At first, it might feel a bit uncomfortable but as soon as you get used to it, you start to feel and see improvements in your body.
