Where to Workout in Red Deer: Studio Pilates

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.

What to Expect at Studio Pilates Red Deer

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
  • TRX
  • 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.

    Love that you can drop in during the day and use their equipment! What a great idea. And awesome that they have child care – I find that’s what most boutique fitness studios like this lack. I want to do Baby Barre again when the new baby comes, but then what am I supposed to do with my toddler?! If only I lived in Red Deer… 😉

      Yeah I thought that was really cool too about their open gym time.

      I find it SO frustrating that all the child minding options are during the day during the week. Great for those parents who aren’t working, but no options for the working parents. Same goes for drop in kid classes, etc. Ooooh it’s a major point of contention for me lol.

      Make Jim move to RD 😉

    This is an amazing and beautiful facility but best of all are their skilled instructors! Char and Dulcie rock the spin classes and Colleen- well anything with Colleen will kick your butt and strengthen your core. Highly recommend this studio for all levels of fitness and those with injuries- the instructors are always able to offer multiple options for all exercises.
