Greetings from Chea
As a former professional dancer (sidelined by a serious auto accident), I learned first-hand of the amazing healing, rejuvenating, and strengthening benefits of Pilates. Pilates gave me back my life and my power—and I was able to continue my physically demanding career after rehabbing with Pilates in just 8 weeks. And, so my love affair and amazement with Pilates began! That was over 40 years ago, and although I may not be able to kick quite as high at this point, ‘I’m still kicking,’ and that love affair continues. It has made an incredible impact on my health and wellbeing and it is my passion and mission to make sure that Pilates will have a positive impact on your lives as well. So, whether you are new to exercise, looking to help recover from a debilitating physical condition, or are a seasoned fitness and wellbeing enthusiast, Pilates is the way to go! Please read further to find out more about Pilates and how my baby, Chea’s Pilates Evolved, and its dedicated staff of Pilates professionals, can help you get there, or call us today to get started on your way to “A Better You.”

WHAT IS PILATES?
Developed by fitness pioneer, Joseph Pilates, Pilates training is a 100-year-old, therapeutic body conditioning system that simultaneously strengthens, stretches, tones, and aligns the body while eliminating excess tension and strain on the joints. It emphasizes natural, flowing movements performed on a mat or on a variety of specially designed equipment. Most celebrated of this piece of equipment is the Universal Reformer, a unique apparatus which utilizes springs and controlled resistance. We are extremely grateful to Joseph for his vision and incredible gift of Pilates—which we are happy to share with you.
“Pilates is the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see a difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body.”
- Elle Magazine, October, 1991
