Where to Workout in Red Deer
Good morning friends! I’m so glad everyone is excited about my project to review the various fitness and classes in the city as much as I am. It’s going to be a big undertaking and it’s likely that I might die in the process, but hopefully I will come out smarter and fitter and able to help this city find their favourite places to workout. The first stop in this little project of mine was Studio Pilates Red Deer, where I spent a week trying a variety of classes.
About Studio Pilates Red Deer
Studio Pilates is definitely not new to the city, however, they’ve recently moved into a beautiful new, 7,000 square foot facility in the McKenzie Business Park in South East Red Deer. While their focus is on private, semi-private, and small group pilates classes, that is definitely not all they have to offer. Along with various fitness classes, Studio Pilates offers a full wellness studio with massage therapy and an on-site dietician.
What I love most about the studio itself is just how beautiful it is. It has a crisp, clean feel with the most beautiful lighting. It’s hands down, one of the prettiest studios I’ve been in. There are large washrooms with showers available for use at any time.
Child minding is available Monday-Saturday from 9am-noon, Monday-Thursday 5-7:45, and Friday 4:30-6. While I didn’t get a chance to check out the child minding with Liam, I am impressed with their evening and weekend offerings. This is a great option for those working parents who want to get in a sweat session.
Another bonus: Studio Pilates carries the latest Lululemon gear which I sometimes think is a bit of a secret gem to our city.
About the Classes
Studio Pilates main focus is on their private, semi-private and small group pilates classes (you can read about my first pilates experience at the studio here). All classes are designed to be co-ed and good for all fitness levels. In addition to pilates they offer:
- Booty Barre, including Booty Barre Sculpt and Baby Barre for mamas
- Piloxing – a mix of pilates, boxing and dance intervals
- The Worx – cardio and strength intervals using a variety of different equipment
- Pyscle – indoor group cycling
- Hatha Yoga
- and more…
I also love that they have open gym time every day from 11-5 where you can use their space and equipment for your own workouts. In the summer, they even offer SUP fitness classes, lessons, and rentals.

What I Loved Most
Aside from amazing lighting and bright white studio walls, I loved that the class sizes were small and the instructors and participants both were very friendly and inviting. I didn’t ever feel awkward or uncomfortable being a newbie to the classes.
If you’re interested in pilates, or adding some different drop-in classes to the mix I highly recommend checking out Studio Pilates.
