Dear Zayna,

As a consumer, I’ve never taken the time to give feedback on any type of service.  However, I was compelled to write to you to truly explain how much you (and your instructors) have done for me!

Back in November 2009, I was having one of those “blah” days while checking out  Until an ad caught my eye ~ Yours!!  I have always heard about the benefits of Pilates but as an avid gym advocate, I was always skeptical of the results and doubted really how much Pilates could do for me.

I decided to give it a try and made an appointment at the Belmont studio to check it out.  You were the first person I met ~ and you made me feel so welcomed and comfortable.  As a newbie to the other side of the fitness world, you and your instructors made me feel as though I belonged there; and I knew it was a good fit for me and the perfect addition to my already established fitness routine.

I made it a point to make Pilates a part of my life; going on average to four classes per week.  And, just for fun, throw in two spin classes (which you have fantastic instructors for) as well.  When I tell you how floored I am at the results ~ I am NOT joking!  From November 2009 to present, March 2010, I “grew” about a half inch and dropped from a size 8 to a size 2/4!! I feel longer and leaner, more confident as well as less stressed out!  I’d have to say, finding Boston Body changed my life!!

Warmest regards,
Liz Petitpas

Dear Zayna and BB instructors,

I was out of town on August 21 and I was not here to celebrate my one year anniversary at Boston Body Pilates in Belmont. However, I wanted to take a minute and share with you what you have meant to me. (And I must tell you that this is totally out of character for me. I might think about doing this, but never get around to it).

A year ago I was feeling fat and out of control. Being on the other side of the aging hill, I kept trying to convince myself this was normal. Don’t get me wrong, I have excersised more faithfully for 15 years more than most people I know. I have been to the gym at least 4 times a week, had tried a personal trainer, and at times during the summers would jog for 2 hours on a treadmill ever at least 3 times a week. In August of last year, I decided to try Pilates again. I had tried classic Pilates mat years ago, twice a week, with a teacher we called the “Pilates Nazi”. Nothing changed on my body, and her routine was the same every class. But a friend that looks really good urged me to find a place to try it.

I googled Pilates and found Boston Body. When I called, I got you, dear Zayna. As soon as I came in, I was sold. I never realized at the time that you had opened that very week! It was Fate!

From the very first, I was captivated. I adored the equipment. The sessions were fun, varied, and I looked forward to them. The very best? True to your advertisement, I could see a difference in my body after 10 sessions. I had only been coming for three weeks when I went to visit my brother and sister-in-law. I had only lost 6 pounds by this time, but the change in my body was so apparent they were dumbfounded. Even without this feedback, I was hooked, and coming to BB had turned into a habit. By Christmas I had lost 17 pounds (yes, I dieted also) and I had lost 8 inches from my belly and 6 inches from my waist. In all of my years of exercising I had never come close to these results.

Boston Body has become part of my life, and an very enjoyable one at that. I am astonished that after averaging 5 classes a week for a year, I eagerly look forward to my hour with you all every day. Zayna, you are always charming and fun and I like to think of you as a friend. I adore all of my teachers, many whom I regard as friends. (Cute little Kristen as well). I have made many friends in class as well.

So I conclude in thanking you in profoundly changing my life, and in adding to it in so many ways. Again, I never go out of my way to tell people these things, but I wanted you to know how much you have meant to me.

With love,
Ann Neczypor
