Welcome to Lift Pilates + Post Rehab, the #1 Pilates Studio in the Sacramento Area

The premier post rehabilitative and "fitness" Pilates studio in the area, Lift Pilates is proud to have been voted Best Pilates Studio in the greater Sacramento area. We are located at 803 2nd Street, Suite C, on the 2nd Floor, in downtown Davis, California.

In January, 2014 we expanded into the studio next door, giving us 2 connected studios. We have an expanded Barre program (Barre Sculpt) taught by fitness guru Rachel Kane, who also teaches a dynamic yoga class called "Yoga Sculpt." Additionaly, we have partnered with Balanced Body (pilates.com) and will be the place to go to for Barre training in the greater Sacramento area--for instructors and students alike!

We help women and men develop an exercise program for life. We help them to continue exercising as they get older and to feel good about themselves both physically and mentally. Pilates helps you develop long, lean, flexible muscles and movable joints. Some of our clients are athletes and others simply want to be able to put on their shoes and bend over to get their morning paper! Everybody and every body type are welcome at Lift Pilates.

Our beautiful studio utilizes state-of-the art Pilates equipment and our skilled instructors provide both "fitness" Pilates and "post rehab" Pilates (we are also able to blend these two very different modalities!). Our instructors have many years of experience and are brilliant at finding the right words and imagery to help you get that "aha" moment many times!

We offer Private Pilates sessions, duet Pilates sessions, group classes on the Reformers, chairs and barrels, and group Pilates mat classes. We are very excited to offer two new classes--Yoga Sculpt and Barre Sculpt, as well as private yoga and barre training.

We custom tailor workouts just for you based on your unique posture, and we provide you with an optimal exercise program designed for your personal fitness level and needs. You will find that Pilates helps you move more easily, with more strength, flexibility and better posture. We’re looking forward to meeting you and teaching you this wonderful form of exercise called Pilates!

Lift Pilates is also a post-rehab Pilates studio and specializes in helping clients with lower back pain.
