Georgia James Pilates opened in Savannah last week and is currently the only boutique reformer Pilates studio in Savannah. What is a Pilates Reformer you ask? It is a full body workout on a Balanced Body Allegro reformer. The Pilates reformer makes a dramatic impression when you first see one, but once you get started, and continue over a period of time, it will make an even more dramatic change in your body. You will feel the difference! Krista Tressler, a Savannahian for almost 13 years now, decided to share her passion for reformer Pilates with individuals in the Savannah area and make larger group reformer Pilates accessible to the general market.

Please tell us what a person could expect when booking a session?

We offer 50-minute full body work outs on our Balanced Body Allegro reformers. Clients should feel refreshed, energized, and a little bit sore after each of our classes. Pilates focuses on strengthening, toning, stretching, and muscle development. We require everyone to wear grip socks for hygiene and safety reasons. If you don’t have them, we offer them for sale in studio. We also recommend bringing water with you. If you need water, we offer water bottles for sale in studio as well. New clients should arrive 10 minutes prior to class time starting so that we can go over the machine with them and help to answer any questions prior to class starting. All the exercises are easily modified or adjusted for clients of all fitness levels.

Who could benefit from one of your Pilates sessions and what would they gain?

Pilates really is for everybody regardless of age, gender, or current fitness level. Pilates has a focus on strength, flexibility, and muscle development. It is a low-impact work out, increasing your balance and giving you longer, leaner muscles.

What do you love about Savannah?

Definitely the people and the weather! Savannah is a large city with a small-town feel. Everywhere you go, people make you feel like family and that is exactly what our goal is here at Georgia James Pilates.

What makes you feel most accomplished?

Helping individuals look and feel their very best. I feel so lucky to be able to spend every day doing something that I absolutely love. Being able to own my own business feels like a dream come true. I wake up every day feeling so lucky to be able to offer clients this amazing work out. Giving them 50 minutes out of their day to do something for themselves that will make them feel good brings me so much joy.
