Pure Philosophy

Pure Pilates is a premier Pilates and GYROTONIC® studio in Northwest Florida offering high quality one-on-one sessions and group classes in two locations. Master Trainer, Susan Clark Waters, opened Pure in 2012 with the goal of fusing the restorative benefits of physical therapy with the core-strengthening benefits of Pilates and GYROTONIC®. Since then, she has grown from Gulf Breeze to a second studio in Downtown Pensacola in 2014 to reach a greater number of clients and expand the Pure Fitness Apparel activewear boutique. Pure Pilates is home to GYROTONIC® Pensacola and is a Balanced Body Pilates Authorized Teacher Center. 


Pure Pilates has the most Nationally Certified Pilates Teachers in Northwest Florida, and many instructors have completed their Pilates Certification Programs through Balanced Body Education, Body Arts Science Institute and Club Pilates. As a Master Instructor through Balanced Body, Susan has expanded her love of Pilates by training the next generation of Pilates instructors. As a qualified training facility, Pure Pilates has hosted hundreds of Pilates apprentices from around the country since 2014.

Pure Pilates believes in the principles created by Joseph Pilates: precision, control, concentration, centering, breathing, whole body movement, balanced muscle development, rhythm, and relaxation. Correct form and control over the body and equipment during exercises combined with individualized training helps drive the focus of classes and private sessions. Pure Pilates welcome clients of all levels of physical ability. Pure instructors have experience teaching prenatal and postpartum clients, post-surgical clients, young athletes, dancers, and any one who is interested in learning Pilates. 


Pure Pilates has also trained athletes at all levels looking to take their performance to the next level. From professional football, baseball, and hockey players to triathletes, professional dancers, avid tennis players, and competitive runners, Pure Pilates clients come from a variety of fitness backgrounds. By using the latest, most effective fitness techniques and staying true to the Pilates principles, Pure helps clients reach their goals. 

Pure Pilates is continually investing in continuing education and new equipment to stay on the forefront of Pilates and fitness innovations. This continual effort to improve and evolve, combined with the dedicated team of qualified instructors continues to set Pure Pilates apart from other studios in Northwest Florida.
