I highly recommend Lynsey and the Pilates classes at Physique Rx’d! From the beginning, Lynsey devotes personal attention to ensuring you have the basics necessary to thrive in class. She works with you to make sure you are comfortable with the movements according to your body and what works best for you. 
I have scoliosis and have NEVER found a gym routine that: #1. Doesn’t hurt my back, #2. That I like, and #3. That I can stick with. Lynsey has changed that for me! Since starting classes, my back pain has decreased to almost non-existent, there’s a noticeable difference in my core strength and I have increased flexibility. 
Lynsey’s energy, enthusiasm and encouragement makes you want to come back and see her as much as you can, not to mention, try your hardest in class. She will correct your form, keep you engaged and focused, all while keeping the class fun and light-hearted!

I had no idea what to expect when I met Lynsey for my first Pilates session. I knew nothing about Pilates, and had to ask whether it was for guys (it is).  All I knew was that every muscle and joint on my body felt tight and my back and neck were in frequent spasm – likely from sitting at a computer all day, coupled with years of the same tired weightlifting routine at the gym.


From the very beginning, Lynsey made me feel like I found the right program and the right teacher.  She started me at exactly the appropriate level, adjusting techniques gradually so that I was making steady progress without getting discouraged. Her infectious enthusiasm for Pilates makes each session fly by, but it is a serious workout, no matter what your level.  Lynsey knows her stuff. My progress so far beats any physical therapy I've ever seen, based on improved range of motion and core strength in a short amount of time.  I call Lynsey my lifesaver.  To anyone who's curious, I encourage him or her to check out her program.

“Lynsey worked with my body and mind to integrate balance, wellness and healing through Pilates. She is energetic, sympathetic, kind, gentle and strong. She has the remarkable talent to engage the mind, body and soul into a healing journey through her Pilates practice.”
— Joan Pittsburgh, PA
“Every woman, really at any age, but especially my age, who is in need to self esteem building, should try Physique Rx’d. The instruction Lynsey gives is much more motivating than anywhere else I’ve tried. I have never stuck with anything else before and now look forward to Lynsey’s sessions, even Tabata Wednesdays. Funny as it sounds, I find Pilates relaxing. I am able to set aside everything and focus on myself, and also what I can get from the class.”
— Debbie D. Pittsburgh, PA
“Along with a healthy diet, Lynsey’s training has helped me drop 3 pant and dress sizes, and has completely reshaped my body. I have confidence I never thought I would ever have, and I actually like my figure. Anyone can lose weight thought diet and exercise, but Pilates has transformed my shape. All those trouble spots (abs, hips, thighs), they aren’t so much trouble anymore! Lynsey’s amazing training has completely changed my life. I look at fitness a totally different way now, and thanks to Lynsey, I now feel comfortable in my own skin.”
— Hayley M. Pittsburgh, PA
“Lynsey is amazing! I have a busy professional career, which includes travel back and forth to my home in Indianapolis and my home-away-from home in Pittsburgh. I prioritize my time to be sure that I spend part of it with Lynsey two or three times a week. The workouts that Lynsey designed for me help to keep me mentally focused and positive while keeping my body in great shape. I love her attention to form and posture, which helps me to get the most out of my workouts. She has become an integral part of overall my well-being. All that and I’ve dropped a suit size too! ”
— Kim G. Indianapolis, IN
“LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CLASS!! Lynsey is one of the most energetic, focused and talented teachers I’ve ever met. I’ve had two children and pilates is the one workout that I’ve found that really did get my body back into it’s original, pre kids shape, plus I feel stronger, more energized and ready to face the world after these classes, believe me, any woman that can get me up to face a 6:30am class and then back to do the same class at 6pm that night is fabulous!! Cannot recommend Physique Rx’d & Lynsey enough! ”
— Julie Peterson, Owner House of Colour Pittsburgh
“I’ve tried just about every form of exercise: yoga, jogging, various gym memberships... Pilates work at Physique Rx’d has proved to be the best for me. After a set of intro classes (really helpful in providing the bases), I’ve been doing 2 group classes/week for the past 8 months and have been sticking at it. The group situation is friendly, non-intimidating, not boring or over-repetitive, and no one cares what you wear. At the same time, Lynsey watches everyone with an eagle eye and always makes sure you have your “mind over muscle” engaged. And then it works... I’m a mother of 2 kids, freelancer working on a computer most of the day and I’m seeing some real concrete improvements in the way I generally feel: posture, energy level, strength, muscle tone etc. I thoroughly recommend this establishment - joining is one of the best investments I made this past year. ”
