What is Pilates?
Pilates is a way of life.
Lesley believes Pilates is a strength based workout that uses functional movement exercises to connect your mind to your body. In every session, you will work your entire body out leaving no muscle overtrained or undertrained. The body functions at its best with it is balanced and strong. Pilates is designed to correct posture, tighten what is loose and create flexibility where you are tight. The benefits of Pilates are both physical and mental. But, most important Pilates is for everybody and you’ll leave every session feeling invigorated and alive. Bring in your goals and your body and be ready to see what Pilates can do for you today and your life tomorrow!
Joseph Pilates originally called his unique form of movement Contrology “the complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit.” We now refer to his methods as Pilates. Pilates is a strength based workout designed to lengthen and strengthen your muscles. Every exercise is initiated from your Powerhouse thus teaching your body to stabilize before it moves. A consistent Pilates practice will not only change how your body looks but also how it feels! In the words of Joseph Pilates “in 10 sessions you’ll feel different, 20 you’ll look different and in 30 you’ll have a whole new body.” When you add Pilates to your regimen it will make everything you are doing more effective!

About Lesley Logan
LESLEY LOGAN is a PMA Certified Pilates Teacher and has been studying and teaching Joseph Pilates Classical Method since 2005 and 2008 respectively. She also has eight years of retail management experience, and six years managing studios regionally for Equinox fitness clubs.
Hooked after her very first class in Orange County, Lesley arranged her schedule to take Pilates classes every day. This enthusiasm moved her to Los Angeles, where Lesley completed a 600 hour Classical Pilates Teacher Training.
Soon after, Lesley completed a Masters Pilates Program from The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, while training elite marathon runners for Nutribullet’s first Los Angeles Marathon. Her love for learning the method didn’t stop there, as she became the Lead Teacher Trainer for Equinox Pilates and led dozens of apprentices through their program from 2012-2016.
In 2013 Lesley was voted ‘Best Pilates in Los Angeles’ by Los Angeles Magazine, featured in Pilates Style Magazine, can be seen on PilatesAnytime.com, and recently has completed ‘The Work,’ a masters program taught by one of Joseph Pilates ‘Elders,’ Jay Grimes.
Maintaining that Pilates is a unique practice that is right for everybody, Lesley tailors the method for each client. Her goal is to help them connect their mind to their core, creating intentional body awareness so they can move from their center, be taller and stronger than when they walked in.
You can find Lesley teaching private clients at Westwood Pilates in Los Angeles or through Skype or Facetime. She also offers online business courses for beginning to advanced Pilates instructors, studio owners and teacher trainers at her website, ProfitablePilates.com, and leading groups on Pilates retreats around the world.
