    Joe is an amazing Pilates Instructor! I have been attending his classes for a year now and I absolutely love it. I am addicted to his classes, which is saying a lot because I typically get bored with every exercise class I have take and eventually drop out. I have never felt better for once in my life I actually see results. He has such an encouraging way to motivate you to be the best. I can't say enough good things about Joe. You just have to see for yourself! Gina

    Joe is amazing. You won't be disappointed. I love pilates and the way Joe instructs us. He has a complete knowledge of mind, body and fitness. I am stronger and healthier. Everyone no matter your age or fitness level can benefit from Joe's instruction.

    Oh how Joe has saved my mobility. My arthritis was such that I could hardly walk without pain and never could kneel. Now I do both plus have more strength,stability and absolute joy than a long time. I am a 75 year old grandma moving now with a 55 year old body!!! Carole N

    Thanks to Joe Melendez I am in love with Pilates. He is an amazing teacher, extremely knowledgeable and just a beautiful human being. I really enjoy his classes as they are an incredible work out but also very soulful. He is all about the body, mind and spirit connection. You will not be disappointed if you take his Pilates classes no matter what level you are at. I can't recommend him enough! I take his Fundamental class level 1 twice a week. I love what Pilates has done for my body, posture and overall happiness! Thank you Joe!

    Joe is an amazing, knowledgeable fitness professional. I have been taking Pilates classes with him for about 13 months and am constantly thrilled at how far I've progressed thanks to Joe. As the reviewer above mentioned, he is great at making classes interesting and different and always challenging. If there is something that is difficult for you (because of an injury or you are not quite there) he knows how to modify all exercises. Joe is excellent with all levels - from beginners to advanced students. I can't recommend him highly enough!
