I help people feel freedom in their bodies.

I train bodies that are vulnerable,
those that are exceptional, and everyone in between.

I teach people to endure and always reach for more.

I train all bodies.

I teach a fitness method that
celebrates our differences.

Because of Pilates, I know that sometimes we must
regress in order to progress.

I know that change happens
through small acts over time.

And that improving one person’s wellbeing
can positively impact the entire community.

What is Pilates?

Pilates, named for its creator Joseph Pilates who developed the exercises in the 1920s, is a blend of flexibility, muscular strength, and endurance movements, offers numerous benefits to its regular practitioners. At its core (pun intended), Pilates focuses on strengthening the core muscles – the powerhouse of your body. This enhanced core strength leads to improved posture and alignment, reducing the risk of injuries and alleviating chronic back pain. As you engage in these exercises, your body not only becomes stronger and more capable, but also more toned and sculpted in areas like the abdomen, legs, arms, and buttocks.

Moreover, Pilates is renowned for improving flexibility. The controlled, stretching movements increase the range of motion in your joints, making your body more fluid and less prone to stiffness and aches. This increased flexibility is especially beneficial as you age, keeping the body supple and agile.

Another significant aspect of Pilates is its focus on balanced muscle development. Unlike some forms of exercise that can build bulk, Pilates elongates and strengthens, providing a leaner and more balanced physique. This balance in muscle development is crucial for sports performance, like skiing and snowboarding, daily activities, and maintaining a healthy body as you age.

In addition to physical benefits, Pilates also offers mental health perks. The requirement for concentration and precise movements during Pilates practice enhances mental focus and mindfulness, leading to reduced stress and increased mental clarity. The breathing techniques used in Pilates also aid in relaxation and can improve lung capacity and circulation.

Overall, Pilates is a comprehensive workout regime that not only reshapes your body, making it stronger and more flexible, but also positively influences your mental well-being, proving to be a holistic approach to health and fitness.

All of this is available and achievable at the Good Life Pilates studio right here in Nederland, Colorado, taught by Pamela Harrington. Use the form below to contact Pam for availability of classes or private sessions.

Thanks so much for the Pilates training, I will not be another hunched over dentist with neck and back pain. I am able to work and play (ski, bicycle, wakeboard, kitesurf, etc.) to my fullest.

Thanks Much

My lower back and hips have been a constant source of increasing pain and distress for years and I thought I would soon be crippled, but Pam’s guided Pilates instruction has begun to turn things around. Today on my way home from my lesson, I found myself marveling at how good I actually felt. More amazingly, I had one of those bathroom slip’n’fall accidents the other day, and I thought I would be in pain for weeks, but all the work she’s put me through to develop my abdominal muscles seems to have allowed me to recover MUCH faster than I ever have before. Thanks Pam!

What Others say?

Pam is a great instructor!  She starts out each session by asking me to check in with my body and then she takes it from there based on my feedback.  I love that approach.  It makes the sessions feel very personalized, even her classes feel that way, instead of a preplanned session with her own goals in mind.  I leave a session with Pam feeling refreshed, comfortable and content in my body, and yet challenged and invigorated.  I consider a session with Pam the best treat for my body, better than time at a spa.
