Testimonials

“I have been attending Pilates at Mobile Fitness for a long time. Several family members now attend MF when they saw the ease I was starting to have with my body. Fiona and Ayla are super professional and FUN. They are body experts and always see what is required for m body within the class. I move easier, have more balance, and feel as if I can keep ahead of unnecessary aging through movement and instruction. I highly recommend MF!” – Deborah & Glenn N.

“I enrolled in Fiona’s Instructor Training program for the Silk Suspension; Foundations, Progressions and ‎Challenges. Fiona was extremely prepared and knowledgeable about not only the Silk Suspensions techniques and repertoire but also Pilates and Fitness training. Each session began with a warmup and then we would dive into the material. I found the atmosphere very welcoming and professional and there were lots of opportunities to share ideas and ask questions.  I really enjoyed getting to know the other Pilates Instructors and appreciated that each Instructors personal style and ‎particular strengths were respected and celebrated. I will definitely look to Fiona and Mobile Fitness for more Advanced Instructor Training in the future.” – Cindy M

Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only).
