Pilates Perfect Studio owner Alexia Simmons has two decades of extensive industry experience. One strong principle guides her philosophy: only Joe’s brilliant authentic method consistently creates the amazing results not found anywhere else – distinctively strong Pilates bodies with solid cores and a vibrant feeling of health.
She began her NYC life in corporate event marketing, but her true calling became clear after a few chance Pilates lessons. She enrolled at the famous Pilates Center at Drago’s Gymnasium, completing 600 hours of formal training and classical authentic Pilates practice; she was certified by The Pilates Studio of New York (now known as True Pilates or Romana’s Pilates). Her signature style has become known for its uncompromising professionalism, knowledge, precision of detail, warmth and caring, uniquely effective solutions for each client, and an intuitive ability to move clients beyond the perception of limitation. Alexia has earned a prominent reputation and esteem in the NYC-tri-state Pilates community for her passionate commitment to the Pilates ideal, community ethic, integrity and straightforward intelligence.
She avidly continues academic and professional education, leveraging it into expanded capability to help her clients. She has been sought out as a writer, expert, and consultant for her professional wisdom. Her devotion to the original Joseph Pilates methodology, and to its lasting preservation, is well known; this has cultivated a devoted following and strong network of friends.
Alexia has worn many hats in the Pilates universe before creating her own studio. She been the educational director for a NYC teacher training program, studio manager, guest lecturer, adjunct lead trainer, and executive business director.
Since establishing her UES studio, she has gained in recognition and accomplishment. She was commissioned to create the first-ever outdoor Pilates Mat series for The Museum of the City of New York; She’s been a guest lecturer and expert seminar trainer; she was contacted by Pilates Style Magazine to write an ongoing blog series entitled “Confessions of a Pilates Teacher”; she continues to be a contributor and writer in the magazine.
Alexia lives in Manhattan and has been part of the UES community for two decades and has studied with Pilates luminaries Mejo Wiggin, Brett Howard, Ton Vooght and Michael Fritzkie.
