In Our Clients' Words
We'd like to think our work speaks for itself:
After three knee surgeries and countless physical therapists, I finally found a trainer who was truly attentive to my needs and circumstances.
I came to see Peter in June 2013. Peter Sheridan is the best trainer I have met. Peter helped re-pattern my movement patterns to relieve stress from key areas and strengthen muscles in others. It was the approach that proved the most helpful. He listened to my story, was attentive to my symptoms, and devised a recovery scheme that got me back from hobbling to extreme skiing in the Alaska backcountry.
Peter takes great pride in his studio. He keeps it immaculately clean and stocks it with great equipment. It is a terrific environment in which to work out, train, get and stay motivated, and be supported. He's wonderful to work with one-on-one, but also runs classes that are awesome.
I would strongly recommend Peter Sheridan and the Healdsburg Pilates Studio to anyone looking to train for sports, address aches and pains, maintain general fitness, or recover from an injury.
I truly doubted that I would ever be able to ski again, but after diligent work with Peter, I got back into the mountains and skied 125,000 vertical feet in a week!Heath Thomson Founder | Metes & Bounds | A Table-To-Farm Dining Experience

I spend endless hours contorting myself into the most ergonomically unfriendly poses possible as I go through my day in front of the computer with my brain buried in code. I live entirely in my head, attending to my body only when it complains for food or ibuprofen. Apparently this is not a sustainable lifestyle, as my shoulders have knotted into an impenetrable mass, and my neck has decided it will no longer support my skull without stabbing me in the eye socket to remind me it needs attention.
Enter Peter. Through his careful observations of my peculiar habits and warped movements, coupled with his extensive knowledge of things called muscles, joints, spinal columns and pelvic bowls he has guided me patiently and attentively through various exercises that have slowly pulled me from the brink of wizened trolldom. My migraines have decreased, my sleeping is sounder and my overall stamina and general outlook have improved since having started personal training at Healdsburg Pilates.
I am definitely a gymphobic introvert. Coming to a clean, quiet studio with equipment that is patiently explained and helpfully adjusted for my workout makes exercising far less intimidating. Sessions bolstered by Peter's encouragement and good humor make physical activity, which I usually detest, challenging and rewarding. My body and I are almost on speaking terms now, and I am incredibly grateful for the commitment and energy Peter gives to enrich others lives with health and well-being. Thank you Peter.
And thanks for not burning my sneakers.Sandra Versteegh | Kreck Design
