The Studio

Referred to as "The Hidden Gem" by our clients, The Pilates Room was founded in 2001 by Tori Ponder-Brown & Chimene Montivero-Cole on Ithaca's East Hill. Almost all of the individuals who started with us in that small 200 sq' space inside the former Courtside Racquet & Fitness Club have stayed for almost 20 years and have grown with us into our current 2500 sq' beautiful private training studio and classroom. Currently located inside an inconspicuous facade right next door to Northstar Restaurant, our equipment and class offerings are unmatched in the region.


We offer "big city classes" to intimate groups. Our clients range in age from  25-85 years old and they are unarguably the most amazing, supportive, welcoming, interesting and fun group of people you will ever have the privilege to meet. Classes at The Pilates Room & Antigravity Studio are truly multi-level. Our instructors have years of experience and will challenge the athletes while offering suitable modifications for those who are just starting out. This is a place where everybody really does work at their own pace and everyone gets what they need. The tough guys will be surprised at the challenges we are able to offer and the newbies will be comfortable working in to a healthy routine.
