Bodies By Pilates to Introduce Authentic Peak Pilates Experience to New Yorkers

Fitness entrepreneur on a mission to transform bodies and minds to improve quality of life! Deb utilizes Pilates but has also developed her own method that integrates Meditation, HIIT and Pilates into one Amazing workout.

Bodies By Pilates, a boutique Pilates studio offering an authentic and customized fitness experience for all levels, launches its very first New York City location in the Financial District January 2018 at 11 Maiden Lane. Founded by entrepreneur Deb Lemon, a Peak Pilates Master Instructor and Personal Trainer. BBP’s mission is to transform both bodies and minds through a menu of classes tailored to all types of clients. The studio will offer a combination of Tower, Reformer, Mat and Barre . Signature classes developed by Lemon will also be offered, including “Body Boss” personal and group training, The Lemon Method, private sessions and nutrition coaching. In honor of its grand opening week (January 8th – January 14th), the studio will feature free weekly basic Pilates classes in addition to 1-week of unlimited classes for just $49. The first 40 clients to purchase 5 or 10-pack memberships will receive free Pilates tote bags. 

Catering to the lifestyles and unique needs of its New York City clientele, Bodies by Pilates will add specific offerings midmorning for those multi-tasking moms in need of a kid-free fitness oasis and midday for those needing to get out of the office and move. BBP will also accommodate members with before and after-hour appointments – available by request. Click here to view a full menu of class descriptions. The Lemon Method itself combines Meditation, Pilates and HIIT into one powerful hour of rejuvenation for our Mind & Body. 

Lemon, a Certified Personal Trainer and Peak Pilates Master Instructor w/30 years of experience comes to New York after 10+ years of building her own Pilates business in the Philadelphia area and is affectionately known as the ‘Body-Boss’. Lemon was introduced to Pilates when she was hired as a QVC Fitness model. The Pilates practice came into her life at a time when she was challenged on a daily basis by a toxic 20 year marriage. From the outside, it seemed that Lemon led a ‘picture perfect’ life when really she was in great pain, suffering and sadness. Pilates essentially gave Deb the inner strength and confidence she needed to leave the relationship. Now a domestic abuse survivor, Lemon has been on a mission to empower women with the practice of Pilates – transforming both bodies & minds – and has had great pride and success in doing so.

“I’m thrilled to share my passion for Pilates and life experiences with this vibrant city – one of the greatest cities in the world,” said Lemon. “Pilates is a way of life for me – it’s a physical, mental and spiritual experience that has changed my life in so many ways. My goal is to empower my clients both body and mind, making them feel stronger and confident individuals.” 

In addition to its membership program, Bodies By Pilates will serve as NYC’s very first Peak Pilates Education Center. Peak Pilates is a comprehensive Pilates training certification based on a three-level modular program that is designed to deliver the highest quality comprehensive Pilates education. Certification training will be offered throughout the year for those seeking professional training.

For the convenience of those clients on the go, the Bodies By Pilates studio features a full bathroom with shower, a full kitchen and open studio hours, available upon request. BBP is located at 11 Maiden Lane, 2nd Floor (near Broadway) in the Financial District and is accessible via the Fulton Street subway station.
