I have been a member of many clubs and studios in Portland but this is one of the best! Hannah has created a beautiful and functional space for clients to experience her unique program. She is very accommodating for any fitness level and always uses care when aware of your bodies' stress points. One very nice touch is at the end of class when you are lying on your mat, Hannah comes around and massages just the right amount of essential oil on your temples so you leave with calm and stress gone! And your workout was fun and effective. I highly recommend this studio--very worth the price!
Dear Pilogarobic: Please come to Seattle! I recently moved away and am already missing Pilogarobic workouts. Over the last year their workouts helped me to the best all-around fitness level I've ever achieved, and the classes are so varied I feel like I never even did the same exercise twice! The instructors give multiple difficulty options for each workout and there's never pressure to do anything you're not comfortable doing. Plus the new studio is beautiful!
I just love this place. Not only am I in better, more balanced shape than ever, the studio is stunning and the trainers are phenomenal. They work with you on a personal level and classes fly by with good music and ever-changing workouts. Whether I need to sweat it out with one of Hannah's specialty circuits, or need to reboot with a peaceful-but-butt-kicking pilates sesh with Keph, I always leave feeling great.
I love their new location!! Dont get me
wrong I was a huge fan of the spot before but now they have a bigger spot that is gorgeous! Not to mention the extra more intimate yoga room and even a room for massage!
What an upgrade! Love it!
Both Hannah and Ishbel are great!. Pil-oga-robic has a great vibe and uplifting energy! The workouts are never the same and the instructors are super nice. I would highly recommend checking them out. Plus, they play great music to move to.
My new fav studio. So, this place is super great!! I started going to classes a few weeks ago and I am kinda obsessed now. The instructors are great and the workouts are super unique, never repeditive so I don't get bored. They work us pretty hard but lots of good stretching and relaxation too... I like to get a little sore from a really good workout, I definately get that from this place. Great circuit workouts on Fridays, just finished one in fact, they are intense but a great way to end the week!! Also, they have student deals...great for those of us who have returned to school. Check it out!!
Best Classes in Portland!.
There is such a wonderful variety of classes to choose from. I LOVE the circuit classes. They give me the greatest workout, and I can't wait to do another! If I feel like sweating less, I'll go the candlelight yoga class. I always get overwhelmingly positive encouragement from the instructors, and their enthusiasm will keep me coming back week after week. Also, their new studio is beautiful. :-)
As I said, these are the best classes in Portland.
i lost my "tummy"!.
my experience with Ishbel and Hannah at Pil-oga-robic since march 2010 has been nothing but phenominal. they truly make their classes fun, butt kickin' (and more, if you choose) and great for conditioning, sculpting, and keeping me lean and limber.
i started Pil-oga-robic with slight limitations in my shoulder (partial tear in rotator cuff) and low back (herniated disc). they've done a great job in getting me into the shape and condition i've always wanted without aggrevating either of my sore spots. they always give options/alternatives in the classes that allows me to push myself as hard as i want (sometimes more then they want) yet i always wake up the next day without any additional pain to my shoulder or back…
but the same can't be said for my muscles, as after each class some muscle group which i don't regularly use during my tennis matches/lessons, in my own workout with weights, or sitting in front of a computer all day, has been worked hard! a two+ hour tennis match is no longer a concern as i trust that my workouts with Hannah and Ishbel will get me through any three-tiebreaker sets, no problem.
the time spent in each class which includes pilates, yoga, cardio and strength training (especially in the circuit classes) combined or seperately gives my entire body a fantastic workout and a great stretch. outdoor classes during the summer includes running stairs up in the west hills or into forest park with emphasis in proper running technique, or jumping-skipping-hopping at the park is another part of their well-rounded workout which i love.
they have so much more to offer at their studio, that i…
love it! love them! love how they make me feel!
Best Workout in Portland, Seriously..
I bought a brand new outfit to start working out in for my New Years resolution, after 2 weeks my pants would not even stay on.
They work with your body and fitness level to maximize your workout without burning you out. I lost inches and pounds within the first month - it is totally true!
I recommend this class over any pilates, yoga, or aerobics class in Portland. If you can afford it, DO IT!
Ishbel and Hannah are some of the nicest people I have ever met, and I can not thank them more for the amazing results I saw immediately!
I have done the step aerobics thing, the running thing, the elliptical and the treadmill. I've done strength training, core workout classes and yoga. I was burned out. And then I stumbled into this class.
Ish and Hannah are great teachers. Each has her own strengths and so they compliment each other well. You get a cardio workout that's never boring, a pilates workout that's never easy and a yoga workout that never fails to leave you feeling great. They are very careful to understand your weaknesses, injuries, past problems and future goals. They are very good at checking in and checking up and will always offer an adjustment to maximize the effectiveness and safety of the moves.
The other thing I want to say is that the class is populated by very nice, down to earth women with senses of humor and good attitudes. You are never made to feel awkward or uneasy because of your current level of fitness, appearance or dress. It's a safe place to find your way back to working out but also a place that will kick your butt regardless of your level of fitness.
