Pilates. All Gain and No Pain.

As a Registered Massage Therapist I understand body movement and implement Pilates as a form of rehabilitation to correct posture, repair injury, and strengthen the core.

Pilates is not a "one size fits all" form of exercise and that's why I want to personalize each program for you and what your body wants and needs to feel its best! 

Just as your favourite barista will prepare your cafe drink just how you like it, I promise that your experience with me will be just as individualized.

Agility ~ Balance ~ Core

Looking to build muscle tone, strength, and improve your posture? 

Pilates is a very effective form of exercise that can help you achieve your fitness goals and provides a complementary program to suit your active lifestyle and competitive sport.

Joseph Pilates, the founder of Pilates put it this way, "In 10 sessions you will feel different, in 20 sessions you will look different, and in 30 sessions you will have a brand new body."  

As a Stott certified instructor, programming focuses on optimal musculoskeletal performance- strength, flexibility and endurance, without risking injury or building bulk

The result is a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized, and moves with ease.

Your Instructor: Krista Dicks

I became a Certified Mat Pilates instructor in 2007.

In 2017 I became Stott Pilates Certified on the reformer. 

In 2018 I became Stott Pilates trained on the Cadillac.

I am an active individual and Pilates has given me the muscle stability, endurance and strength to continue my activities injury free with proper alignment, flexibility and balance. 

My background in dance gave me the exposure to Pilates as a form of fitness to lengthen and strengthen the muscles without building bulk.

As a Registered Massage Therapist, I love Pilates for injury prevention, postural improvement and for individuals who are recovering from injuries. I especially love teaching on the reformer!
