FITNESS SHOULD BE A PLEASURE.
If I designed my ideal place, it is not a gym. It is a studio. It's intense, effective, complete, and safe. Cardio, core work, stretching, and yet you’re in and out in under an hour. You look great. You feel great, stronger, more flexible, more sculpted. Your friends see the results. HSP is not a chain. There are no TVs, no cell phones, no waiting for equipment or jockeying for space at the barre, no herds of spinners, no teachers screaming into a microphone from a memorized script. Clients get personal attention from master teachers certified by the most rigorous programs. It's friendly. It's for men and women, for beginners and athletes, with no atmosphere of intimidation or competition.
ABOUT THE STUDIO
HSP offers Classical Pilates classes and private/duet sessions on the Reformer.
Our clients develop core strength, sculpted physiques, flexibility, and cardio fitness. We offer group Pilates classes on the Tower unit. The maximum class size is 9 students to one teacher. We also offer private and duet Pilates sessions on the Reformer. Our clients get great results because our eagle eyes are on them from start to finish. If you haven't been corrected 5 times in class, you are not at Henry Street Pilates.
Joseph Pilates trained Romana Kryzanowska. And Romana Kryzanowska trained Jan Leahy. And Jan Leahy is going to train you. That’s what Classical Pilates means. Jan was certified after 700 hours training and has been practicing and teaching Pilates for over 20 years. Jan is a neighborhood fixture and a fitness rarity: a boutique fitness owner and master instructor who can make you laugh while she’s kicking your butt.
Jan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. Visit her blog post, It’s Cancer, Deal! for details about her diagnosis, course of treatment, and recovery. Motivated by her own rehab process and a desire to work with other breast cancer survivors, she recently became certified as a Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist through the Pink Ribbon Program™.
