Smart Body Pilates Studio, in its ninth year of business was co-founded by Aimee Levesque with former partner Missy Grant.

The studio is a spacious 2000 sq ft space featuring a large main studio, specialty studio for yoga, TRX and orbiting classes, designated EXO chair room and onsite masseuse.

Smart Body boasts the area's finest, professionally certified instructors who will motivate you to achieve your best work and results in the Pilates method.

Our environment is friendly, energetic, supportive and highly educational. Our clients often comment on the camaraderie and positive relationships that develop between fellow students and instructors. It is Aimee's intent that each client is comfortable, gets a great workout and feels part of the "Smart Body Pilates Studio Team".

We specialize in customizing programs for a wide range of clients — from post rehab to the elite athlete looking to enhance their sport performance.

The Private Session

It doesn’t get any more customized than this! A new Pilates client must have between five to ten private sessions before joining a group class. This ensures the individual gets the attention and skill training needed to proceed in a less supervised environment. Many clients like the attention and customization they receive in a private session and seeing the value in this type of training, continue privately.

The Semi-Private Session

The next best thing... Two clients paired of similar level share the supervision of one instructor. Intensity level will be conducive to level of students. Some customization of program is probable.

The Group Class

A great way to be able to attend multiple classes per week for benefits that can yield results faster. Classes are between three and seven students with one instructor. A class environment will be less customized and will proceed at a set pace that is appropriate for the class level. Most of our established classes are ongoing with new additions of students possible given level of client and space available.

We do offer specially designated 8 week "Intro to the reformer" classes where no prior experience is needed.

We offer crosstraining sessions with the TRX and Orbit equipment.

Pilates has made all the difference in the world in helping me be a successful masters athlete in softball and racquetball at the national level. I'm a 63 year old woman and has successfully recovered from a hip resurface one year ago! I have worked with Aimee Levesque over seven years and extensively during the recovery phase of my hip.  Pilates means core strength and endurance which translates into torque, power, and flexibility in sports. Smart Body Pilates Studio is state of the art and Aimee is a superb instructor and trainer. I look forward to continuing Pilates with Aimee for many sports years to come!

Dee, 63 years old
