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!

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.

– S. H.

Brenna! I Just wanted to report how fun today's session was, how happy
I am to be learning from you, and that after the workout,
my right hip felt awake, alive, and HAPPY, not sore, inflamed, and DONE.
Not expecting miracles here, but am feeling encouraged and excited to come back.
