After a dislocated knee cap and three surgeries, I decided to give Pilates a try. I was told I would never have full range of motion, be able to kneel or squat and would always ache. Physical therapy was unsuccessful in helping me regain my range of motion and only concentrated on my right knee – not my whole body. With the help of Denise Maffia and Pilates Physique I am 95% pain free. I have a full range of motion, I can squat and sometimes kneel without pain.
I have never had an instructor whom I respect or enjoy more. Her classes are fun, efficient and effective, and I have more flexibility and stamina than I ever dreamed I would after 5 children--all this, thanks to Denise and her superb grasp of pilates instruction.
I really enjoyed the class with Racine! She did a couple of moves that I had not done before and a couple of variations. She also increased the resistance so I felt a challenge both physically and for my concentration. I slept well and felt great the next morning. I won't hesitate to take a class with her.
Denise is the best instructor you could ask for. Very in touch with each individuals needs and abilities! Makes the workout not only beneficial but fun. I highly recommend Pilates Physique to all!
Denise takes the time to get to know her students. She does a great job in modifying your work out to meet your needs. Great instructor. I highly recommend her.
I love the studio , Denise is an excellent teacher , she has the knowledge and expertise in the the Pilates Method . Her ability to connect mind and body and her commitment to her clients is what makes her so special ! I highly recommend taking a class , it’s fun and a great workout .
Denise is the best fitness class instructor of any kind that I have ever head. She is extremely knowledgeable in her discipline and takes the time to learn the limitations and injuries of anyone she instructs. She is excellent at providing visual cues which allow her clients to maintain proper form and maximize their results. My posture has improved and my injuries are less frequent since I have taken Denise’s classes. I would recommend her to anyone at any fitness level.
My initial introduction to Pilates was with an instructor in Florida who had trained in the Original Method of Joseph Pilates in his studio in New York City. When I moved to this area and found Denise, I knew after my first class with her, that I had “come home!” Of course it was obvious that she too had been trained in Original Joseph Pilates Method. Denise is a consummate professional, incredibly adept and proficient in her guidance and teaching style. Her attention to form and movement is individual to each client as she makes sure to take into account the physical strengths and weaknesses of each body. She expertly guides her clients through a series of moves tailored to engage the body in a way that makes one feel exhilarated and fully challenged. She’s the real deal!!
Denise is amazing. She really knows her stuff. She has helped me recover successfully from shoulder surgery and helped my chronic back issues. Plus she’s fun.

I have been working with Denise for years now. She is amazing and so incredibly knowledgable in her field. I highly reccomend her!!!
Denise has a gift for getting you to be fully aware of your body. She is great in her work with equestrians.
I love what I do and I love what it does for my clients! Everyone of all ages & fitness levels can benefit from the Pilates Method. Come in for a free consultation and start your new way of life. Pilates will help you feel better thru out your day, increase you flexibility and circulation, enhance your breathing and make you more well rounded during work & play.

I have been attending Denise’s Mat Classes on Wednesday evenings for the past year and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Pilates from her. The mat class was also my “therapy” after breaking my ankle and having surgery. Denise is a great teacher and advisor and I encourage others to try a class of hers sometime soon!
I started Pilates 2 years ago with Denise and she has helped me transform my posture, lose weight and resolve my pain issues. Denise is always learning new Pilates techniques to help enhance our Pilates experience. I highly recommend Pilates Physique, it's a wonderful, clean and relaxing environment.
I wanted to tell you that my girls noticed improvement in there flexibility after only one Pilates class. They have been working on splits and immediately after class were able to finally do a full split. They were so excited!
