I've been a student at Helios for about two years now and can't say enough about the studio and those that teach there. I was completely new to Pilates and have now become a huge fan and believer.

I am very disappointed with Helios. After they moved into their new studio the vibe started to change. It went from feeling like a comfortable low key environment where you could do pilates without judgement to a corporate factory that was

I found Helios by accident a few years ago looking for a Pilates studio in Chicago. I've since tried a number of others in the neighborhood, and no one holds a candle to these ladies! The ower Jenna and her team are so well educated, and they practice a unique type of pilates called "the Fletcher method," which focuses not only on your muscles getting a good workout, but also on your breath, your posture, and your overall functional movement. I'm narrower from both the front AND the side, and my arms have a "cut" line - which is pretty impressive from one very white girl! I wouldn't trade this place and my twice weekly visits.

Pros: Great workout, Convenient Hours (early / late / weekends)

I started going to Helios in October and fell in love with the environment, the intense workouts, and my instuctors Jill and Molly. I've never been pushed so hard in my life, but was extremely satisfied with the results :)

Pros: Great Instructors, Positive environment

Cons: NONE AT ALL!

I have been going to Helios for about a year, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life and my body. I am more flexible, stronger, and more toned. I finally found a routine that I actually like to do. My instructor Molly is a tremendous motivator she always pushes me to do my best, never lets me give up and makes my workouts fun. I still can't believe that I actually got results from my work out regimen and that I enjoy it.

I started going to Helios just over a year ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Everyone is so friendly and makes you feel welcomed. My instructor Molly is AWESOME!!! She keeps my workouts interesting & fun and always pushes me to do a little more each time. My muscles are so much stronger and I am able to do moves that I never thought I would. I really look forward to my weekly sessions!!!

I've been attending classes at Helios since January 2009 and I have loved every single class I've experienced - floor, mat, reformer, chair, etc. Jenna, Molly and Jill are all FABULOUS! I've been in sports and worked out my whole life, yet I've still seen great results from the classes here. My muscles are stronger than ever before and I swear I've grown a 1/2 inch - not bad for a girl who is 5'0"! ;) Absolutely LOVE Helios and their instructors too.

After unsuccesfully treating a hip condition through traditional physical therapy, I started sessions at Helios to improve my hip strength and mobility - and stay in shape for my upcoming wedding, since my usual running routine wasn't possible! Not only did my hip significantly improve, but i was able to shave inches off my waist and feel great at my wedding. Molly is an incredible instructor who helps achieve your goals and pushes you hard, but knows how to have fun with the sessions too!

Pros: Personalized attention, good equipment & results

Cons: expensive hobby - in general, not just Helios

I first went into Helios a yr ago. I was ready to really turn my body into a well oiled machine after experiencing issues with my back for years. The trainers here are very supportive and knowledgeable. I overcame my obstacles quickly under Kristine??s personal instruction and became the person I've always wanted to be physically, and pain free! I'm grateful for the guidance and inspiration from here. Rock on gals!

Working out has been a part of my life for 15 years and I have tried everything. It wasn't until I started Fletcher Pilates studio that I truly found a work out that I love and that actually impacts my body and life. The instructors are amazing and knowledgeable!!!

Nothing like a Pilates work out to get you sweating. Actually, I prefer a good jog but sometimes it's just too hot and humid outside in Chicago. This is a nice clean place where the staff and guests are always friendly. It's always a good workout too.

I would highly recommend Helios Center for Movement to anyone looking for a great workout to get your bod in better shape! The studio is extremely clean and the workouts vary from class to class in order to keep things interesting. I love Kristine as instructor; she is professional, friendly, upbeat and not at all intimidating. Your body will thank you after you discover this little gem in Roscoe Village!

This is the first review I've ever written, but I feel it is important to share a wonderful experience. After taking Pilates classes at health clubs for several years, I was interested in taking instruction at a studio and learning to use the Pilates machines. With names like the Cadlllac, Reformer and Wonda-Chair, who wouldn't be curious? Jenna, the owner of Helios, is an extremely professional, friendly, knowledgeable and inspirational instructor. She really knows her stuff and has a lovely way of imparting her vast knowledge to others, at any level. The studio is clean, bright and well-equipped. There's a wide variety of classes. As a mat Pilates novice/intermediate, I felt that I was in really good hands, was learning excellent form, inspired to improve my practice and had a new Pilates home that I would never outgrow.

I came to Helios Center for movement in search of a means to improve my flexibility, but was welcomed into a wider world of knowledge about my body and how it connects and responds to movement. Studio owner and pilates pro Jenna Wilayto has been an inspiration to me and pleasure to work with. She has a thoughtful approach that is both educational and challenging and an uncanny ability to impart technical knowledge to her students in a very relatable way. I'm pleased to report visible progress in both my strength training and core muscle development over the past several months. I've also been able to apply these learned techniques and proper form to enhance my weight-lifting routine. Helios makes working out enjoyable and is a place that I look forward to spending time -- it's clean, modern, comfortable and inviting.
