Nice, clean studio with pleasing lighting. Wendy has gone to great lengths to create a wonderful studio environment.
Wendy is great working with everyone and their specific needs! I highly recommend this class which Wendy gears for all levels.

Wendy is not just a Pilates instructor, she is a miracle worker. No one has given me faith in my health, like Wendy has. I have scoliosis and within 4 sessions, I was pain free. I had been going to a back rehabilitation center and experienced extreme pain after I was finished with my appointment. Not until I started going to Wendy did I feel progress. Three years later I shattered my leg in an accident. With two trauma surgeries, not being able to walk or put any weight on my leg for a combined 5 months, then to having a major problem learning to walk again, I had lost hope. Dealing with a broken leg and knee, I felt my life was never going to be back to normal. I had been going to a physical therapist for two months and again, was concerned for my progress. Once I mentioned to my trauma surgeon what Wendy has done for me in the past, he said do not wait, she is your saving grace. Prior to seeing Wendy, I had no movement in my toes. After one session with Wendy, she was able to get me to move my toes on my own. Wendy is not your typical Pilates instructor, Wendy is an expert in her field. Whether your case is severe or you just want movement, you will be amazed by the progress, happiness, and mental growth you will have after seeing Wendy. Thank you Wendy for saving my sanity, happiness, and giving me hope that I will be normal again someday. You are my saving grace.

I HATE exercise classes. I don’t enjoy being told what to do, I have never liked the music they play, it’s always a sad and ugly room, and someone fake cheering me on is my worst nightmare.
Studio Kinetics is not like that. I trust Wendy and would possibly follow her off of a cliff. Her music is great. The room is open and calming. When she cheers us on I feel like she really means it. She is proud of her students and wants us to be safe and strong! I have only been to 2 classes (mat) so far but I feel right at home and can’t wait for the next class!

Wendy is amazing. She is talented in her skill, and is thorough in explaining the flow of movement!

Wendy is an amazing Pilates instructor. After having a spinal fusion I needed to find an exercise program that was low impact yet would build strength in key areas. Wendy took the time to listen to all of my concerns/issues with my body after surgery and made sure she tailored a plan specific for me. I felt comfortable in all of the new things she was teaching me and that she had my best interest at heart. As long as Wendy is teaching Pilates I will never go to anyone else.

I came to Studio Kinetics reluctantly, never thinking I’d be a big Pilates fan. But, after the first visit, I kept coming back because I felt better and could move through the day and my cardio workouts without pain. Wendy is much more effective than any of the personal trainers I’ve worked with. I’ve seen a noticeable and marked improvement with an old rotator cuff injury and on-going back pain. Wendy has the keen ability to notice how I move through the exercises and to make critical corrections that maximize my results. She makes the whole process fun, the hour flies by and I leave feeling terrific.

I love Wendy and her studio so much and feel very fortunate that she is here in Carefree. I’ve been taking Pilates for 5 years, with many different instructors in several modalities, and know that really good teachers are few and far between. Wendy is the real deal. Her background as a dancer, her years of Pilates instruction and knowledge of anatomy means she has endless variations to keep every class different and knows when your body can be pushed and when it can’t. She challenges me and makes every session fun so that I (and my hubby) keep wanting more. Highly, highly recommend!

Wendy’s virtual mat Pilates classes are excellent! Her classes are the perfect combination of strength training, cardio, and stretching. I always feel stronger, more aligned, and less stressed after her classes! I recommend Wendy and Studio Kinetics for all ages and fitness levels. She is very knowledgeable about the human body and can tailor exercises and workouts to your specific needs. Give her a try, you will feel great and won’t be disappointed!

I wanted to get myself a terrific Pilates instructor and was certain I had when I met Wendy Ellis. She is dynamic, engaging, fluent, and fun. She is creative in choosing and challenging my body to work. Her language and demonstrations help me to understand how to engage my muscles and move my bones to achieve the desired form. She watches my execution and cues me to correct the imperfections in a way that is succinct and comprehensible. She has enormous pep and vitality and when the session is over, I always tell her it felt like ten minutes because the time always flies. I enjoy working with Wendy immensely. Her years of dance and Pilates have produced keen awareness that she translates through her expert instruction. She is inspirational.
