What People Are Saying About HHPW
Let me start by saying I am a fit person but my flexibility is VERY POOR. That being said, working with Bernadette at Happy Hour Pilates has been very eye opening. She is able to push my body to limits I never knew existed. Through her motivation and careful corrections I sometimes feel invincible like Superman and as flexible as a contortionist after our sessions are over. I’m glad I was convinced to try Pilates on top of my normal strength and cardio routines and Bernadette is my go to!Michael Q.Professional Organizer & Aerospace Project Engineer
I've been working with Happy Hour Pilates for the last 9 months after I was recommended by my Physical Therapist! Over this time, Bernadette has created personalized sessions to help me regain my strength after my injury. She is so great with workout modifications, but still pushes me past my mental limits. I'd recommend her over and over!Christina C.Scientist
"A true miracle worker! Bernadette’s passion for helping others and intuitive attention to detail makes her the best guide and instructor I have come across on my wellness journey. Within a few weeks of private Pilates sessions, she identified an injury I was unaware of – an injury to my shoulder that would have likely led to greater joint and ligament issues if left untreated – and guided me through a practice of mind-body awareness that gave me the confidence to continue rehabilitation during daily life and other workouts."Katherine O.Senior Account Executive
My daughter, age 11, has had both individual and duet pilates sessions with Bernadette in conjunction with private ballet classes. We see new results each week in terms of her strength, flexibility and determination to continue to work hard and improve her skill. Bernadette provides a challenging, yet fun experience for her clients. My daughter comes away from every session feeling like she got a great workout in and is challenged to continue her work at home. Bernadette gives her “homework” to work on during the week which makes every session even more worth the time, energy and cost than it already is. Her weekly sessions with Bernadette are one of the highlights of her week. I am so thankful for the dedication and heart Bernadette pours into her clients and couldn’t recommend a private or duet session with her enough! She truly loves her clients and what she does and it shows in how she conducts herself and her sessions.Cassie O.Administrative Assistant & Former Paralegal
"I started my sessions with Bernadette after having knee surgery, due to a torn meniscus. She helped me recover and strengthen not only my knee and leg, but my entire body. She is great at communicating how the work I am doing will benefit me, while constantly encouraging me to be patient with myself. Bernadette helped me push past my physical barriers and has given me a new vocabulary of exercises while still helping me focus on my dancing. I have gone back to my collegiate dance program with a stronger body and a way to prepare myself for a healthy career as a dancer."Hayley W.Butler University BFA Student
"We are beyond pleased with the care, service and attention to detail Bernadette has provided for our daughter. Her quality instruction and knowledge is apparent when providing pilates lessons for our daughter. We have seen tremendous growth in our daughter in both physical and mental strength in the short amount of time she has been receiving private instructions. This resulted in a huge shift in her dancing technique and skills. Bernadette has a way of making our daughter comfortable, challenged and accomplished in an encouraging environment. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to take their strength & flexibility to the next level."Eric & Jeannie B.Director of Technology & Health Coach/Entrepreneur
"I was diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age. I have since then tried different kinds of exercises and classes, but haven’t really found the one that works for me until I started taking Pilates with Bernadette. My posture has improved so much, and I feel less tension in several parts of my body, especially my back. Working with Bernadette I feel very comfortable. She listens and focuses on my specific needs. I look forward to continuing to strengthen my body with Pilates."Bianca G.Optical Assistant
When I first came to try out Happy Hour Pilates, I was somewhat skeptical to try it simply because it’s not the typical “macho” workout. Let me tell you that after I tried a session with Bernadette in her studio, I was humbled. These workouts aren’t like anything I’ve ever done before and I’ve trained my entire life. I’ve been a travel, collegiate, and professional athlete throughout my soccer career and I recommend this type of workout to any serious athlete who wants to improve their strength and flexibility. Bernadette finds ways to trigger specific muscles and get the best from this workout. After an ab session with Bernadette, it hurts to cough for a couple days but I still love getting a Pilates session in with a professional athlete herself.Dante L.Personal Trainer
