Making connections. Building a healthier you.

Don’t ever give up on your body! Joint replacements, multiple surgeries, age — Paragon Pilates will help keep you moving! Thank you for increasing my strength and flexibility, and teaching me smart body mechanics. I am a new woman!

– C. F.

As a busy mom, I need to make the most of an hour away from work and kids. Paragon is a happy place to go for a 'mom break.' You always feel energized at the end of each session.

– P. G.

After a few months of therapy at Paragon, I have regained 85% of my left arm movement and improved my golf game by cutting down on the size of my swing. Thanks Paragon!

– G. C.

What I appreciate most about Paragon is how careful my instructors are with my body, gently working within my own physical parameters to create a healthier me.

– S. D.

My six months at Paragon have resulted in a smaller waistline, better posture, more flexibility, and many compliments stating how healthy I look.

– P. R.

Now that I have returned to dance, I am stronger and more flexible than ever, and I owe much of my success to the wonderful people who work at Paragon.
