I honestly don't know where to start when it comes to my experience with Cara Krupa and her HIGHLY talented staff at East Street Pilates.

I'd been working out at home with the BowFlex for the past 14 years. Honestly, I was getting bored and was looking for something that would get me out of the house and NOT BE A GYM.. I've always been interested in Pilates, so after researching local Pilates Studios, I decided to email East Street Pilates regarding their Intro Package for 1 Private Session, 1 Reformer Class and 1 Group Session. Within minutes, I had a response from the owner, Cara Krupa. In January of 2016, at the age of 42, I had my first private session with Cara.

When I walked in, the studio was pretty busy, but I never felt “judged” by the other women that were there finishing up their workouts. In fact, it was such a friendly and inviting environment! After my first session, I was 100% hooked. When they say “In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, and in 30 you'll have a new body,” it’s honestly the truth. As a woman who suffers from Depression and ADHD, I noticed such a difference, mentally and emotionally, within the first couple of sessions. Then came the physical changes in my body, and it was mind blowing. One year later and counting (-20lbs ) with Cara, going at LEAST once a week, sometimes twice, I'm a completely different woman than I was a year ago, and that is because of Cara Krupa and East Street Pilates. Cara continues to push me, but knows when I have a hard time focusing and will adjust my workout. I'm incredibly proud of my body and what I've been able to accomplish mentally and physically. I definitely walk taller and have more confidence than I've ever had.

Just an added bonus - the women that work out there and the staff at East Street Pilates encourage one another; complimenting on each other’s hard work. In a nutshell, East Street Pilates and Cara Krupa have totally changed me; physically, mentally and emotionally.
