Are you ready to fall in love with the Pilates Reformer? Group Reformer uses resistance springs to develop balanced muscles and long, lean lines in your body. As one of only 6-8 students per class, you will get personalized instruction that will help you progress at your own pace while enjoying the support of a group class.

Private Training

Everyone should begin Pilates with private, one-on-one training. Private training will allow you and your body to learn the method and your trainer to give you direction. If you have any specific needs, private training can address them in a safe and supportive environment. See our Specialties page for more information.

Learn More About Us and Our Team

I grunted through the first several classes but loved that I accomplished each class without giving up. A couple of days per week grew into a few days per week and maybe a weekend class. I was getting stronger by the day. In six months I had lost 50 lbs and changed my pants size from 14 to size 4! Nancy and Liz were so supportive and inspiring that I felt like I had a personal coach.


Love the studio, the people, and the amazing instruction! I felt core muscles this morning that I know have never been worked before! Thank you!


I am 70 years old and live an active lifestyle. Aside from Pilates training, I take spinning classes, ride my bike, fish, and play golf. I am involved in many projects for my work and often travel. I am seldom idle and like to be active. The one thing that has really slowed me down is my Plantar Fasciitis. I am pleased to say, without a doubt, Pilates Reformer has cured my Plantar Fasciitis. The exercises we do relieves the tension and tightness in my foot and calf, especially during ‘footwork’ and has helped my alignment.
I haven’t experienced any symptoms since I started over five years ago at Precision Pilates.  Pilates has improved my golf game tremendously. In addition to all the above, I feel great and always look forward to my Pilates workout. I do private training three times a week. I plan to continue to take Pilates Reformer for the rest of my life.


I can’t recommend Precision Pilates to enough people. Any friend I bring with me absolutely loves it! It’s so fun and such an amazing work out. Nancy and Liz are so inspiring and I love they way they teach. The best part are the mats that we clean with tea tree oil spray to sanitize after every class. It smells so clean and fresh when you are face down on them ?


Beautiful studio, great instruction, and inspiring teachers.


Pilates is fabulous and Liz is an excellent teacher. The flexibility gained from these routines is huge. All of the classes leave you feeling nourished, stronger, and healthier at the end of every hour. What I love is that no two workouts have ever been exactly the same. The classes are so well run that the time goes by very quickly and it’s great to give that time to myself. I would highly, highly recommend trying one of the classes; you will be hooked. For me, Pilates is certainly for life!


Nancy has not only used Pilates to train my body, she has educated me in the anatomy of movement. She truly empowers her students by explaining the functional significance of the movements. In all my years of physical therapy, her successful tactics are unmatched.


Precision Pilates is a Grate Place!! Excellent instructors, convenient classes, well maintained space and equipment.

I have weekly individual classes with Amy. Every class I come in “broken and stiff” from the week’s other activities. Amy customizes my routine to address what’s broken. At the end of class Amy has “fixed me”; everything’s working again. THANK YOU Amy!!


This Place & these Owners & teachers have changed my life. I have never liked working out and have always struggled with my weight. I finally found my happy place working out here. Not only do you get a KILLER workout you leave feeling Empowered. 8years Strong I think or more. ❤️Nancy & Liz❤️

I joined last month and I’m hooked! The instructors are professional and talented. I truly feel they care about me and want me to feel comfortable. The studios are very clean and have a relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend this studio.


I joined Precision Pilates nearly two years ago and have been a faithful client ever since. With your choice of their Danvers or Ipswich studio, there is always a BARRE, PILATES or YOGA class on the schedule to keep you motivated. I love that it is a studio that works for everyone with truly the very best instructors, great music and a relaxing, clean space to enjoy a fantastic workout. You won’t be disappointed!


I started going to Precision last year after moving to Ipswich. Both studios (Ipswich and Danvers) are amazing, and the owners, Nancy and Liz, have really created a welcoming feeling at both of them. I never feel awkward or out of place when I’m there because they are so friendly. The instructors are all amazing and really seem to want the best for their clients. The Pilates program is wonderful; they have both mat and equipment classes, and the teachers are all so knowledgeable. The barre classes are tough, but so much fun! It’s hard to find good studios on the North Shore, so this has been a life saver!


I’ve taken barre classes, as well as reformer and both have been AMAZING!  Barre is my go to and always pushes me harder than before.  I wake up the next morning sore all over and couldn’t be happier about it.  The instructors are great, I usually take Liz’s class and she is amazing….,extremely approachable for questions and someone who will really make your muscles shake.


Gorgeous studio with an amazing variety of classes.  The teachers and members here are extremely welcoming to all clients, new or advanced.  Precision Pilates is the leader on the North Shore for Pilates enthusiasts offering another location in Ipswich. Precision offers private and group classes on the mat and with equipment. The small group Reformer classes are a favorite, although the studio also offers Cadillac, Chair and other props and equipment. And, your first class is free!


I joined Precision Pilates about a month ago. I’m loving the Precision Ageless Fitness class with instructor Gary Martinello. This class has been designed for anyone who would like to improve their flexibility, balance, and coordination all while increasing muscle strength and endurance along with bone density. The class moves at a slow and controlled pace. Gary is a knowledgeable instructor who attends to the needs of each individual in the class. I’m looking forward to trying other classes at Precision Pilates.


Happy thanksgiving from all of us at Precision Pilates! We are so grateful to all of our incredible clients who make @precision_pilates what it is! We would not have been able to get through 2020 without your support. Happy thanksgiving to all.
Stay healthy! We love you!

In his book 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life, John Kralik explains how writing one Thank You note each day for 365 consecutive days transformed his life. John notes starting this exercise with everyone that gave him a Christmas gift, and then expanding to co-workers, then to other people he interacted with, such as a barista that greeted him by name at his local Starbucks.

From this experience, John realized that writing the Thank You notes helped him focus on little things he had been taking for granted and be more positive about the bad things in his life. After his 365-day exercise was over, he noticed that his life had changed significantly. He lost weight, his failing business was prospering, and his relationships with family and friends had improved.

It may seem like an insignificant thing, but writing one Thank You note a day can truly change your life as well as the lives of those around you.

✨Get a gratitude rock✨

One of the challenges with gratitude is remembering to practice it every day. This is where a gratitude rock can help. The first step is to find an attractive-looking rock that you don’t mind seeing every day. You may turn this into an activity where you go find a smooth rock at a river bed. You can even write or engrave the word “gratitude” on the rock. If you’re looking for a quicker solution, you may choose to just buy a gratitude rock.

Placing this rock in a prominent place will remind you to express gratitude. Each time you touch the rock, think of something you are grateful for. You may decide to get a couple gratitude rocks, or keep a small one in your pocket to remind you when you are away from your desk or your home as well.

Using a gratitude rock can change your life in many ways, including helping you:

💫Think more positively
💫Live in the present
💫Give back to others
💫Make your health a priority
💫Be more successful in your career

👉 Osteopenia & Osteoporosis. Did you know? Approximately one in two women over age 50 will break a bone because of osteoporosis? A scary fact, we know. The good news? There are so many ways to stay strong and many of those include bone building through #pilates and specifically jumping, posture work, balance and proper weight bearing exercises!
👉 jumping 10 to 20 times a day with 30 seconds of rest between each jump provides greater bone-building benefits than running or jogging, according to research out of Brigham Young University
👉 Weight bearing exercises (especially if done properly) help to strengthen bone tissue and build bone mass
👉 Reformer will help you target specific muscles with the advantage of being able to modulate the amount of load placed on joint.
👉Balance exercises are equally important in fall prevention- hello #pilates
👉working with a trainer who understands safe exercises for osteoporosis and osteopenia is key!
At Precision, we know which exercises are contraindicated for osteoporosis and which ones are beneficial. It’s never too late to start strengthening your bone tissue and preventing bone loss!

Second #gratitudechallenge❤️

💫Let’s commit to one complain free day this week!

The savoring walk study and Dr. Emmons’s journaling study also apply to our next gratitude exercise that will change your life. Both studies indicated that the “negative focus” people in these groups found that consistent complaining led to decreased happiness. So an important message we can take from this research is to do your best to stay positive and avoid complaining.

Of course, completely avoiding complaining is easier said than done. But to get started, you can commit yourself to one day a week when you avoid complaints. This will help you to avoid thinking of yourself as a victim and start taking more responsibility for your life. As a side note, it will likely be easier to choose a weekend as opposed to a weekday to complete this exercise.

👏 Kneeling abs and anything in quadruped (all 4’s) is a great way to connect to your pelvic floor and TA muscles- especially after childbirth or abdominal surgery. We @precision_pilates believe that gradual and proper rehab are so much better for the body long term than jumping into intense workouts after the “6 week clearance.” If you or someone you know is interested in prenatal or postnatal training, email or call us to book!
Holiday gift certificates for private training are also available!
