"Lynne is the best. Talented, experienced, creative, disciplined and a giggle now and then. Best teacher I ever had and I have been to Pilates in Chicago, Hawaii, Raleigh, N.C., Oklahoma, La Hola, Calif., D.C. and Martha’s Vineyard. She is the best—how did we folks in Burlington get so lucky? Plus, Lynne is a bargain—I keep telling her to charge more—all the other places are so much more $$$." - Kathy Gutting
"As an instructor, Lynne is not only knowledgeable and attentive, but she is also motivated to constantly educate herself and introduce innovative modalities to her already great classical pilates regimen. As a person, Lynne is engaging, supportive and most importantly, fun to work with!"

"Since beginning Pilates two years ago I have increased my flexibility, gained core strength - and my posture reflects it as well! I have found Lynne's attention to technique valuable and appreciate how thorough she is in her explanations making certain I understand and practice proper technique. I look forward to each of our sessions and know Pilates is a major benefit to my health and well being."

"I have done Pilates for several years, but I have never made the progress or enjoyed Pilates the way I have with Lynne Martens. I can feel the difference in my core strength, flexibility and balance. I feel better now than I have in years.
This is no accident. Lynne is a knowledgeable and engaging teacher. It is obvious that she gives a great deal of thought to every class. She keeps track of my performance and adjusts our work accordingly. Each class is a building block toward the next level of achievement. The classes are always varied which keeps them fresh.
During each lesson,
Lynne is focused like a laser beam on me. There are no distractions. She is continually monitoring my form and breathing. It makes a big difference when I am doing Pilates at home, I am much more careful about both, remembering her comments and cues.
I look forward to our classes every week and when I am forced to miss one I feel the difference."
- Ross Brewer
"Since I have been taking pilates with Lynne Martens, for 2 plus years, I've gotten stronger, stand taller, and have gotten rid of chronic lower back pain. She mixes up the classes each week so you stay interested and challenged, and the best part with Lynne is her exhilarating personality, which keeps me entertained and coming back for more."

I began taking private sessions with Lynne nearly a year ago and since that time I have experienced improved muscle tone, greater flexibility, balance, posture and my overall fitness level has increased. I can say without reservation that she is a remarkable instructor. I especially appreciate her ability to recognize and deal with different physical types and capabilities. For example, after I learned that I was pregnant, Lynne customized an exercise program for me which allowed me to continue with my Pilates classes and I am loving every minute of it. It's hard to argue with her incredible list of credentials. In that regard, Lynne continues to evolve with Pilates by attending workshops and conferences on the latest trends, equipment, and educational tools. It's my firm belief that we all need people like Lynne in our lives that make us better for just knowing them. Lynne is one of those people.
