In health and gratitude,
Owner, Defining You Pilates & Fitness
We will update our safety guidelines again in mid-December, or as soon as we receive word from Governor Waltz's office. Until now, our protocol and safety guidelines have included the following:
Please only come to the studio if you have an appointment or are registered for a class or personal training session. Unfortunately, with social distancing guidelines we cannot entertain walk-ins.
Our video details the studio flow and describes the spacing in both the apparatus room and the large studio as well as the reception area.
We no longer provide towel service or a water cooler. Please bring both a towel and filled water bottle to the studio. Bottled water is available for $1.
Our trainers offer verbal cues only (no touching!) and wear masks.
We require clients to wear masks upon entering the studio. Once you are with a trainer and in your designated location in the studio, continuing to wear a mask is your decision.
Washing hands prior to entering the studio is strongly recommended; we provide sanitizing gel for your convenience.
Our instructors will wear gloves to touch all equipment and thoroughly sanitize each piece after use.
Detailed operating procedures can be found here.
As a personal training client, you may want to bring your own mat and/or yoga towel to place over a mat. We currently have 10 new yoga towels in the studio for $20. However, these are also widely available online if you prefer to purchase on your own. We will be cleaning the reformers and swapping out loops after each client/class, but you have the option to purchase your own reformer towel or double padded reformer loops.
Defining You Pilates & Fitness is your place to transform your mind and body through movement and reconnect to your healthiest self.
We offer group fitness, Pilates, and private training.
Join our friendly community where you'll be led by passionate and committed instructors who will guide you through "challenging, but do-able" workouts.
Through our spirit of fitness, you can improve your inner and outer strength and flexibility so that you can do more, feel more, and be happier!
I don’t have enough words to properly express my gratitude for all that DYF has brought into my life. I have grown mentally, physically and found an inner calm. I appreciated how Suzy and the DYF crew transitioned the studio to Zoom and outdoor classes during the COVID shut down. Their forward thinking allowed me to stay on track with my fitness goals and be able continue to feel the spirit of the DYF community. I always look forward to my in-studio, Zoom or outdoor Happy Hours. DYF provides the essential services I need to thrive. Nancy M.
I feel the love! This is the most heart-centered studio anywhere. Joanna W.
DYF is the best studio/gym/club experience I’ve ever had. I loved coming to the studio, always felt welcomed, heard and safe. Most importantly, you’ve done an amazing and admirable job, so much effort to keep members connected, motivated, helping us to stick to our fitness goals during these last months. Remote classes appeared out of thin air, technical difficulties handled within minutes, no one could have expected how quickly you reacted, and how vital it was to my mental and physical health to ‘see’ you. Yes, Netflix got me thru, but DYF kept me sane. Lizzie C.
I appreciate all of you! Your communication via email and social media along with the deep connection I feel when I am in your space each week working out makes me feel like I belong to something VERY special. I am so very lucky! I will keep my membership going because I have faith we will all be back together again sooner rather than later. I love to wear my Defining You sweatshirt but I will wear it with extra pride and gratefulness during this challenging time. Lara H.
A casual, personable, and not intimidating environment. Top quality instructors. Easy to follow and a serious workout. I enjoy Ballet and Power Barre as well as the other Pilates classes. Your body will thank you and you will want to go back. Jan M.
The only gym I've ever stuck with my adult life. Great variety, excellent welcoming teacher, lovely environment. It's always a pleasure to go. My favorites are Power Barre, Mat Pilates, and Spinning. Alice S.
I hadn't been able to exercise for a couple of years due to illness. My body took a beating when I was sick, but Defining You has helped me love myself and my body again. I love being able to exercise in a judgement-free zone. The instructors are so positive, and very encouraging. I havent felt this strong in years and I love it! Hayley H.
Defining You is not just the best place to take Pilates training, it is a wonderful community of amazing instructors who give personal care to each client AND a community of terrific and fun clients who enjoy each class and bond as great friends! Pat S.
