I haven’t worked out in years, but was able to jump right in thanks to the knowledgeable instructors and warm atmosphere of The Pilates Barre. The variety of workouts is amazing and being able to take Barre, Pilates Tower, and TRX classes with the same package ensured that I saw results quickly. Each class makes me aware of my muscles in different ways! I’m stronger, leaner, and I feel more balanced both mentally and physically.
I’ve been taking Pilates equipment classes my entire adult life. To have found a place where I can take a Pilates equipment class for $20 is unbelievable. Now I can experience both private Reformer sessions and group Tower classes without having to sacrifice financially.
My 15 yr old daughter is a year-round swimmer who started going to ThePilatesBarre to help strengthen her core and improve her flexibility. Within a few sessions, she felt stronger, leaner, and much more aware of her body. Last summer, the day before she competed at the Senior Open Championships, Sharon led her through a series of exercises on the Reformer followed by M.E.L.T. techniques on the foam roller. The results were incredible. My daughter felt loose and relaxed while swimming—and posted personal bests!
Pilates, Barre, and Core Fusion classes are amazing! To be blunt, if your rear end is sagging and your stomach is drooping, this is the spot for you! You get a work out - especially the challenge class. My arms look better too! I like the varied way they use props, it keeps the classes from getting boring. The instructors are always using the tower, rings, bands, rollers, balls and weights in different ways. The routines are always different- with the same great results! The online class sign up is great and the classes always start on time. Love ThePilatesBarre! Thanks for my new body!
Unlike other exercise professionals, Sharon is unique and innovative in her work. Drawing on a remarkable array of techniques, she designed a program for me that helped overcome a decade of back problems. I will forever be grateful.
I recently won a gift bag at a silent auction that enabled me to take 3 classes at The Pilates Barre. I enjoyed each one immensely and found the instructors to be very professional, focused on their clients and very welcoming and warm. The facility is fantastic...bright, clean, organized and inspiring. I have been going to classes there ever since and see the difference in my body!
A year and a half ago, I was in a serious accident and was temporarily paralyzed. After surgery and initial physical rehabilitation, my surgeon recommended Pilates as the best way to help me with my recovery. When I started going to Sharon, I was not able to do much physical activity except walking. Today, I am almost fully recovered and building myself up to being able to run marathons again. Sharon’s knowledge of the body and core is second to none. She was able to build a specific program for my condition that allowed me to recover most of my mobility and build my core to be able to lead an active life again. I owe my health and well-being to Sharon and The Pilates Barre. Thank you for helping me get my life back!
I was curious about starting Barre back up, and popped into The Pilates Barre. Sharon was wrapping up her morning but put down her things to walk me through the menu of classes. She suggests I take a class with her first so she can see me work and we can plan a program for me together. LOVED her class, and so excited to be part of that group now!
Sharon, I wanted to write and tell you how thankful I am that I started taking classes at your studio. Before you, my body was tight, achy and unresponsive to any exercises or stretching I had done in the past. Now, the pain is almost gone. I’m more mobile with so much more motion in my spine and strength especially in my lower back and abs... AND I can withstand the long hours on my feet that my work requires. We are so lucky to have you and The Pilate Barre in our town!
Thank you for the wonderful difference your studio has made in my life. Your warm and welcoming space, and your flexible scheduling has made it possible for me to incorporate exercise into my daily routine. You are the perfect “gym” alternative. I’ve been doing one-on-one pilates sessions, group sessions, and different classes, and the quality of teaching has been consistently high. I feel like whatever I’m doing at your studio, I’m in the best of hands. Since working with you, I have reversed the negative trend on my bone density scan, and my doctor has told me that if I stay with this form of exercise, I’ll likely avoid having to go on medication. I can’t thank you enough.
My daughter, Dona, is a serious ballerina. Classes with Sharon enhanced her performance as Sugar Plum last year at the Ridgefield Playhouse. She is now a trainee with the Connecticut Ballet. Sharon’s amazing knowledge of anatomy gave Dona skills to strengthen individual muscles and educated her about her body. For years Dona has battled unevenness with her shoulders; Sharon helped her recognize those weaknesses and worked on specific muscle groups for a stronger, more even body. As a Mom I could see the results— and the joy of my daughter— as her body became strong, keeping the leanness required of a dancer.
Thank you to all the amazing instructors at ThePilatesBarre! I LOVE the classes and what the work has done for my body and mind, and I love the welcoming and supportive feeling I get when I enter the studio. Gone are my gym days...ThePilatesBarre is a wonderful addition to our town and to my life!!
Sharon McSpedon has a love of learning and an uncanny ability to incorporate new techniques into an already comprehensive framework. She is committed to knowing how my body works and what I need to achieve and maintain total fitness. Her energy and good spirit are qualities I admire. My sessions with Sharon are the most personalized and beneficial of any I have ever had. I love feeling thinner and always look forward to the sessions and classes that make me more positive, physically and mentally!
Love Sharon and Love the Reformer! I had never been on a Reformer before and was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was, and how great the results were. Sharon was very patient with me, guiding me through all the moves. You can really tell she has decades of experience! She doesn’t miss a thing! She is great at working with your specific body problem areas and limitations. I have taken exercise classes for years and have never seen results like this. Sharon is highly accommodating of my crazy schedule and quick to respond when I email about an appointment. I couldn’t recommend ThePilatesBarre more!
