"Amie is a great instructor for a number of reasons. These are the few I'm going to highlight:
1) Amie puts a lot of thought into each class. She tailors my workout based on my progress, other exercise classes I take, and is flexible with altering the workout plan on the day of based on how I'm feeling.
2) I'm confident in her abilities. She is very thorough in explaining and demonstrating how to do every move.
3) I've been taking Amie's classes for ~1.5 years and she's had (and continues to have) amazing energy and enthusiasm in every one. It definitely helps to motivate me in each workout."
"Amie's a very professional, humorous and caring. She can help you better understand each action, really understand why you need to do it. So you don't have to see her every day, you can do it at home very accurately. Also she can improve your interest in sports. I bounced back after baby #2 in half the time compared to after baby #1."
"I like Amie's attention to detail. She comes up with a routine that works for you and your needs."
"This was my first experience with 1:1 Pilates and I came to Amie with some lower back and posture issues post-pregnancy. I trained with her for just 10 sessions and in that short amount of time, I have noticed a huge improvement in my posture, ab strength and overall body awareness! I carry myself differently now and feel so much stronger. Amie is a terrific trainer - she is clear and thorough and is encouraging and challenging at the same time. I felt that she really took the time to customize the exercises to my level and explained each exercise really well. She also really makes sure that you have the correct form and makes small adjustments in your body position which make a huge difference! I highly, highly recommend Amie's services."
"I started working out with Amie about six months ago. My core and upper body were quite weak at the time. Amie really took the time to understand my strengths and limits, and designed a bespoke program for me accordingly. I never felt I was being challenged beyond my capabilities, though I could see she regularly changed and increased the intensity of the workouts. Slowly I could feel myself getting stronger with each class. In six months it made a huge difference to my strength. I can now lift both my kids at once! Amie is also very passionate about her job, extremely dedicated and knowledgeable."
"Amie has been a revelation as a Pilates teacher. She has a diverse and interesting repertoire of exercises and uses very uncomplicated language and clear analogies to describe the sequences of movements. This makes for lovely smooth, precise movements targeting exactly the muscle groups that the exercise aims to recruit. Progress through each session is fluid and the level of difficulty is pitched to each individual so that each person is challenged.
In her one-on-one sessions, Amie assesses her client regarding ranges of movement, flexibility, and symmetry, and identifies weak or tight areas, areas of asymmetry and overworked or underworked muscles. Through this assessment, she can guide her client through a program that focuses on rectifying these problems. As a physiotherapist, I can vouch for her accurate diagnostic skills.
Amie is very skilled at making small adjustments that make a huge difference in one's movement and alignment.
I have participated in many Pilates classes over many years and Amie tops them all."
