Lisa Shklar owner and sister Rachel run a studio that advertises expert instruction which couldn't be further from the truth. The instructors are sooo poor that after 5 years of attending classes I decided that going to the gym would be more beneficial. Lisa has a horrible attitude and feels it neccessary to talk bad about other clients during her classes. She comes into class half the time late and repeats the same exercises over and over. There is no progression in her classes if anything the classes are re-gressive. Her staff are so weak that they often ask if its ok to teach certain exercises.
Lisa talks about her own personal problems during classes and her sister will join in on the conversation. If your not part of the "in crowd" then you are made to feel like you don't belong. She outwardly flirts with the young men that are at the studio which makes everyone feel uncomfortable. Lisa talks bad about other studios and instructors which makes her look insecure. Her sister rachel is rude and ignorant. She lies and will tell you classes are full when they are not even running.
She will bump you out of your spot to put in one of there favourite clients instead. They both have such mean aggressive personalities which makes going to the classes intolerable. I was a client for 5 years and left because of there poor instuction, there lack of professional behavour and the fact they choose to talk bad about clients all the time. I have never had a better workout since I left Pilates North and I like going to my classes now. And there equipment, grippers, and small equipment stink horribly. Stay Clear of This Studio
