Our Clients say...
Therese is an amazing and talented Pilates instructor and is guided by her expertise in all aspects of fitness, health, and life. I would not have been able to make it through my stay in Baton Rouge without her! Therese understands the body and has a keen ability to address all body types and muscle imbalances, and designs workouts and exercises accordingly. She helped strengthen and stretch my back and neck in a series of challenging workouts that left me energized to power through the day. I wish I could continue with my sessions at the Pilates Center of Baton Rouge in all of my homes away from home.

Coming to Baton Rouge for two months shooting the Haunting in Georgia, not knowing a soul, is a daunting task. Especially for someone who needs Pilates in their life at all times. With the grueling schedule, I had to have a place that would keep my body going, when it wanted to give up. Little did I know, through finding Therese, that my body would leave in better shape than when it came. She knows how to work the muscles so deep and her way is so lovely and calm, it was the perfect match. She is the best instructor in Baton Rouge, no doubt, and I can’t wait ’til my next project in Louisiana so I can work with her again!

I wanted to thank you for the tremendously positive impact that you have had on my life since my arrival at The Pilate Center of Baton Rouge last January 2012. Your knowledge of the physical body is extraordinary and, when coupled with your remarkable athleticism and enthusiasm, as well as your encyclopedic knowledge of health and nutrition in general are all truly unique. Your talents are so inspiring! I thank you for the stability that the Pilates and barre classes have brought to me: physically, mentally, literally, and figuratively. I thank you for sharing your time, energy, and talents with me so generously each week. You are an inspiration to so many and I count myself so very fortunate to be among them. Most fondly, Sweet

Best Shape of My Life! I have been training with Therese Pittman more than 2 years and can honestly say I am in the best shape of my life as a result of her personalized approach. Therese customizes her Pilates classes to your individual needs. Even in her group classes she is aware of each students strengths, limitations and injuries. I have trained with other Pilates instructors in the Baton Rouge area, but have received the best results with Therese. — Toni
I first tried a Pilates class when I was on holiday and realized that I left that hour class pain free for the first time in months. When I got back to Baton Rouge I went on line to find a class here. I have been working with Therese twice a week for about a year and a half and I know that this is the best thing I have done for myself. I always leave feeling much better. Therese knows so much about the human body and she encourages and challenges each of us individually to push beyond our comfort zone, but always she works with our limitations. The hour goes so fast as each set of muscles is stretched and worked in a very thorough and balanced way. I know that joint problems will be part of my own ageing issues, but I believe that continuing with Pilates Center and working with Therese will keep these problems to a minimum. I highly recommend Therese and this Pilates Studio for anyone who is ready to work for a healthy life change.

I have been taking Pilates with Therese for several years. She always impresses me with her knowledge of the human body and what exercises will be most beneficial for my body depending on my condition that day. I know that each class will be challenging and different, with no chance of becoming bored! I am in a class of three students of varying ages, and although we each suffer with chronic aliments, she manages to address each of our problems within the one hour class. We all agree that we leave feeling better than when we arrived. I highly recommend Therese and feel confident that she will have you looking forward to coming back each class. You will see an improvement in your physical as well as mental health in no time! — Julie LeBlanc
Therese is the best instructor — she is very focused on making sure that the exercises address your body issues. I have been taking Pilates for about 5 years and it has completely changed my body. The core exercises really work. If you are interested in becoming leaner, stronger and straighter then you should attend Therese’s Pilates and Barre classes. — Meredith Hathorn
