Client Feedback in 2017
I was introduced to Holistic
Bodyworx by my daughter who could not say enough
great things about the studio and the owners Tina
and Roy. She has moved away and has said she cannot
find a studio or instructors that she experienced at
Holistic Bodyworx. Thanks to her I joined the studio
four years ago. If you want results, then their
classes will provide the challenges you need to
achieve your goals. Tina and Roy care about your
health and wellness and always take the time to
answer any of your questions. I would definitely
recommend Holistic Bodyworx.
I have been a
member of Holistic Bodyworx for last 3 years.
This is the only studio or gym I stuck by for so
long. I love their Pilate combo classes.
Fantastic workout, but also you learn so much
about your body. I see enormous progress in my
stamina, core strength and flexilbililty. Not to
mention super staff and super people. Real fun!
love Holistic BodyWorx! I have been a client at the studio
for a while now and I can honestly say I cannot imagine
going anywhere else! Tina and Roy (along with all the other
staff) do such an incredible job at leading fun and
challenging classes everyday! Not only do they offer a wide
variety of class types, but they are also held at many
different times in the day so there is the opportunity to go
before, and after work as well as during your lunch break. I
would definitely recommend the studio to all of my friends
and anyone who is looking for a great workout!!
have been going to this studio for over one year and I can't
say enough great things about this place.
I've been to many other yoga studios and gyms but I never
stuck with them.
The difference is Tina and Roy. Tina is an excellent
motivator and she really wants you to live your best life.
Roy is one of the nicest person I have ever met. They both
foster an atmosphere of inclusion and camaraderie.
The workouts are tough but I go back because I get results
and the studio has become my workout family.
I recommend this studio if you are serious about investing
in your self.
From the very first moment I entered the studio, I felt
welcome. Tina has this incredible personality that is warm,
affectionate, empathic, caring and uproariously funny. The
studio is small (which I like). These classes are for people
who are serious about fitness, however, even as a novice,
the instructors are caring, encouraging, and positive. The
instructors chat with you after the class and then when you
attend again, they know you by name. Holistic BodyWorx is a
studio that truly cares about their patrons total well
being, not just the physical state; they care about your
diet, your health and your emotional state. I love this
place and I love the instructors. I am absolutely exhausted
when I leave but I have already seen results in the short
period of time I have attended. A little hidden gem tucked
away in Mississauga. I highly recommend.
I've been attending classes for six years now and HIGHLY
recommend this studio if you want a great workout and want
to trying something new. I've never been athletic growing up
but I can tell you my self-esteem and endurance have changed
since attending. As for my motivation, that comes from the
positivity of those running this studio. Tina and Roy (the
studio owners) are fantastic professionals. All instructors
are properly trained by Tina and Roy so you get the most out
of your money in addition to a proper workout. As for people
who attend the same sessions as me, they're like everyone
else trying to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
I've established a real sisterhood here where no matter what
our lives are outside of the studio, we work together in a
REAL supportive, family-oriented environment. If you want to
sign up on one of their group-ons, keep in mind there are
fantastic deals as well in the studio's newsletters!
Absolutely outstanding studio. I've been coming here for
about 5 years- my wife has been a client even longer.
I started out as a raw fitness rookie - frankly, I did not
enjoy working out. They encouraged me and cajoled me and
pushed me and trained me until I met and exceeded all my
fitness goals. A couple of years ago, I completed what I
regarded as my ultimate fitness test, a 320-kilometer
single-day bike ride. I was 55 when I did this; when I
joined this studio, I could barely ride 5 kilometres.
I could never have accomplished this extraordinary test of
endurance and strength without Roy and Tina's counsel and
prodding. Perhaps just as importantly, I've learnt to
continue to stay the course - because the benefits to my
overall energy, endurance and flexibility have been
tremendous, they've turned me into a lifelong fitness
devotee. I enthusiastically recommend this studio.
have been coming to Holistic Bodyworx for 1.5 years now, and
I've tried a lot of different fitness studios and this has
got to be hands down one of the best ones. It's like a
family here, and the instructors really care about your long
term fitness and well-being. I find their approach very
honest and direct, which is why I keep going back. The
classes are intense, in a good way, and the music keeps you
going. I highly recommend this studio.
I have been a
member at numerous gyms and have worked with various
personal trainers over the past 30 years. Although I've been
able to maintain a healthy level of fitness, I was never
really able to transform my body or achieve the strength and
stamina that I wanted. My weight and size remained the same
(give or take a pound or two) - I always felt stuck. I
thought I'd give pilates another shot and joined Holistic
bodyworx in November 2016. The workouts are kick ass, the
instructors knowledgeable, approachable and on point. Tina
and Roy (the two owners) are always available to answer
questions and help guide you in achieving your personal
goals. Their passion and expertise go above and beyond! In
the 7 months that I have been a member, I have dropped 15lbs
and an entire size. My body, at 48 years old, has completely
changed. In addition to the physical benefits.....I've met
the most wonderful group of women. It's a small studio,
which gives you a sense of family and community, not
something I've ever experienced at other gyms or studios.
Love, love, love this place!! If you want results, join!!
Hands down the BEST work out experiences I have had. Not
only are the owners Roy and Tina some of the best
instructors for Pilates, yoga and strength training I
have had the pleasure of working with but they also care
about your experiences with them and take the time to
help you work on form and what works best for you
personally. Highly recommended studio!
I love their classes. Tina and Roy are always so helpful
understanding and accommodating. I have been going to
them for over 4 years and they are like family. Their
knowledge about health, nurtrition and just life
exprience make it more than just a work out. They really
help you reach your full potential. Plus I love the
MUSIC and they make work outs so much fun. It's
definitely my "me time " from my kid and husband :)
This is the best yoga/Pilates studio I have been to yet.
I've been attending this studio for the past 2 years and
also a full time member. The owners, Tina and Roy are
the nicest of people who have worked hard to provide a
very comfortable, family type environment. This studio
is also extremely busy and small, and to be respectful
to other students they do not allow latecomers.
If you're the type of person who doesn't read up on
things you purchase and do your homework before hand,
decide to disrespect people by coming in late, then this
place is not for you. Your money is better wasted
You can read the reviews other people say because
clearly, they cannot respect other people's time...
They're probably too busy writing negative reviews and
may be a reason for their tardiness.
Excellent Hot yoga and Pilates studio,. Well
knowledgeable instructors in both practices. Lots of
available free parking. Make the commitment and see the
I couldn't help but notice the reviews that gave a low
rating based on having the door locked and the classes
begin when they should. I consider this a very unfair
way to rate a studios performance. It is the normal and
proper practice with an established studio to keep to
their schedule and lock their doors. There are many good
reasons why this takes place. *** It is only fair for
those who come to the studio on time and are prepared
for their class to be able to start without waiting for
those who are not ready. Don't forget many people have
busy schedules themselves and need to get out of class
on time. Locking doors is for safety & security and
everyone today appreciates that thoughtful action.
Don't let the small stuff distract you from setting and
keeping your goals.
Holistic Bodyworx , wonderful studio.
The owners are welcoming and make the environment fun
and relaxing at the same time !
There is a great mix of classes to attend and really
diverse instructors which is great !
I absolutely love this space.
5* all the way! Keep up the good work
Holistic Bodyworx is a great studio, when I chose a
studio it's more than just the classes it's about the
culture and environment of the studio and this studio
has amazing people from the owners to the teachers and
the students. I have been coming to holistic for many
years and have always had a positive and wonderful
experience. I recommend this studio to any new or
experienced yoga/pilates or fitness enthusiasts.
I first joined on a Groupon and loved it so much, I
signed on for 6 more months. For reasons not because of
Holistic BodyWorx, I did not renew. I finally decided
after a year that I needed to take care of myself for a
change, went back and signed for a year. That was almost
4 years ago. I love this studio. There are a variety of
classes/instructors to choose from as well as times. I
love that it is a small studio where attention is
focused on form so as not to hurt yourself. Are these
classes easy? Absolutely not! But, that is why I come
here. I leave here every day absolutely exhausted after
giving it my all, but at the same time glad that I came.
I am in the best shape of my life physically, mentally
and emotionally. I have learned so much about healthy
living from Tina (who is tough, but truly cares). There
is a wonderful atmosphere about this place that makes
you feel like you are part of a family. Tina and Roy
have put their heart and soul into this studio and you
can definitely feel it. They care about each and every
member that comes in. As for the comments about coming
late, the rules are there. I personally would not want
people coming in after the class has started and have to
move my stuff around to accommodate a latecomer. There
are classes almost every hour in the evenings, so if you
can't make one, there is another after.
I have been going to Holistic Bodyworx for about 8
months now and let m just say, it is absolutely
fantastic! The owners (Roy and Tina) are very helpful
and will give you all the tools you will need to meet or
exceed your weight loss or fitness goals. The staff is
very friendly and are willing to help you with any
questions you have.
The classes and programs they run have been better than
anything I have seen or tried. I always had a hard time
losing weight and getting in shape, but with their
guidance, leadership and motivation i have been
successful so far. I couldn't have done any of this
If you want a place that will support you, guide you
through the steps od achieving your goals and answer any
questions you may have, this is your place. Everyone and
anyone who has a weight loss goal, fitness goal or even
just want to get out and meet and talk to great people,
I HIGHLY recommend Holistic Bodyworx
Listen, if you're late, that's your fault. This facility
holds classes, respect that and show up on time,
everyone else does it. This is by far, THE BEST pilates
studio in the GTA. It is fairly priced in comparison to
any studio in Toronto, the instructors are fantastic and
pay attention to each and every person in the class. The
pilates classes have really upbeat music which gets you
going and the instructors make you push yourself. I have
lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained 10 lbs of muscle. I
am in the best shape I have ever been in. This studio is
a big YES.
I have been a client at Holistic
for 8 plus years - never a bad experience- love the late
policy - it is disrespectful to those on time for others
to come late - plan ahead !! both Tina and Roy provide
professional services that help to make you stronger and
great place to be !!
If you would quickly reduce an
inch on your waist line, flatten your belly fast and
deep whole body toning. This is it. Iíve been practicing
hot yoga for many years from different studio in
Mississauga; I just joined this studio recently. I
enjoyed my experiences with Hot Pilates and I am
satisfied knowing that every session is a real work out.
There are two important qualities that I would like to
point out; the instructors are great and the music is
I've been a part of this studio for 4 years and it's THE
BEST Pilates studio in Mississauga. Be prepared to sweat and
work to a great selection of playlists. If you want results,
then come here. The product is unlike any other.
The owners, Tina and Roy are some of the nicest people ever.
They are the pioneers of pilates in this city, as they've
been open for business since 2005. What other studio in the
area has been around for this long? Exactly! The studio is
small and somewhat hard to find at first, but so what, 12
years and running - proof that the product and people are
Studio is definitely for those who are discipline and
dedicated in achieving their goals, whatever those may be!
So to those who are late, let's try to be considerate of the
large group of students who plan ahead and come in on time.
One suggestion for the late goers: try investing your $$$ on
at-home fitness DVDs or videos. You don't need to be on time
for those! 1-Star for you!
Encouraging, Challenging, Rewarding, Educating
I have been a client of Tina and Roy for the last 3 years.I
used to be over weight, Lower back pain, slow and round.
Until I joined Holistic BodyWorX. .....To say the least, I
I have learned many things about my body and Pilates,
technique, weight training, teaching a class,, Bootcamp,
Cardio, muscle conditioning, I look at Holistic BodyworX as
a mentor and my home base
I have been inspired to take my fitness to a higher level, I
can see results in my body, my core and my stamina. I look
up to and value the experience freely shared by both Tina
and Roy. They have 15 years experience in the fitness
I love it!
HBW is awesome. The Hot Pilates classes are easily the BEST
ab workout you will find in the GTA. If you eat properly and
take 2-3 Pilates classes per week, you're abs will pop. And
they play decent music; certainly better than most other
Pilates studios and definitely better than any gym.
For the people complaining about the refusal to let in
people that show up late and the location being "hard to
find" I have 2 comments. Firstly, those that come late have
to walk through the studio, find a spot and set up their
mat. That is irritating during Pilates and can break your
concentration in yoga. Why should someone who showed up on
time have her or his workout disturbed by someone who showed
Secondly, the studio is not that hard to find. Once you have
been there once it is extremely easy and there is always
parking available. Some of the best restaurants in this city
are tucked away from main intersections. By your logic you
shouldn't eat there but just keep going to Jack Astors or
Boston Pizza because they are on main intersections.
First, I must respond to the woman who posted she was 5
minutes late and that she was "yelled at" by Roy. I was in
that yoga class. You knocked for a long time, both at the
door and the outside window. I understand that you would
want to get into the class - the classes are amazing - but
you must have realized after knocking on the door for so
long, with no one responding, that class was not going to
stop for someone who was so late in arriving. It's so
unfortunate that you would take the time to write something
so negative without acknowledging your lack of consideration
for other paying customers who were there on time to attend
a class. Roy was upset and pointed out that you were being
disruptive. I heard him tell you that, and I heard him
apologize for being upset.
Roy and Tina are both fitness experts, kind and hard-working
people who run a studio that is devoted to providing the
best possible service through a variety of classes taught by
superbly qualified instructors. They are respectful and they
care - they care so much that they are devoted to preserving
the integrity of their business. That means classes in which
the instructor is devoted to running classes free of
interruption, and in which they offer the best possible
attention to their students.
I've avoided going to any type of studio due to a negative
experience a while ago. Now I attend classes at Holistic
BodyWorx almost every single day because I feel comfortable
in the friendly environment and enjoy the great variety of
challenging classes. I feel better than I have in a very
long time and am grateful to Roy, Tina and the staff at
Holistic BodyWorx for changing my mind about fitness.
This studio is amazing! If you're looking for an intense
workout, this is the place to go. The owners Tina and Roy
are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and they're
always there to guide you and answer your questions. The
late policy is displayed clearly in the studio and on the
website. If you can't make it to a class on time like
everybody else then that's your problem. It's not fair to
everyone else who also pays a membership for you to come in
when you please and disrupt the class. There are many
different classes at different times that are accessible to
is the best place if you want a good workout. Of course
every workout is based on discipline and discipline starts
to be there on time. No matter what is the reason if you can
not make it no hard feelings turn back and next time make
sure you will be there ! I am a member for the past 5 years
and it happened to me also that I was late and could not
make it to the class but I do not blame the owner. I totally
agree if you are late do not disturb the class just next
time leave earlier to make it to the class ! Via this note I
would like to thank Roy and Tina for the motivation and
keeping our body in a good shape.
Keep up the good work and the family, friendly environment.
If someone complains that was late and door closed JUST
IGNORE it. That person doesn't deserve to be there.
I don't want to be in∑ter∑rupt if I am in and the class
I loved Tina's and Roy's classes and the home like
Want a good work out? Take Tina's classes.
Want a good stretch? Take Roy's classes.
Want to ask and discuss about nutrition, recovery,...life,
vacations, cross training...Roy and Tina are there for you.
Miss you guys, work keeps me away these days but I'll be
have been a client at Holistic BodyWorx for 9 years! I have
always been pleased with the level of service I have
received from Tina, Roy and their team. This studio operates
in a professional, respectful manner and the Yoga and
Pilates classes are wonderful. They do a great job hiring
the best teachers!
am so impressed by this place. The teachers are wonderful
and the classes are some of the best I've experienced. It's
a great environment to take pilates and yoga.
The hot yoga room is
spacious as there were 5 people only. Instructions were
clear and I could follow. The pace was adequate to work out
as this was my first visit. Instructor was helpful to
provide some individual guidance.
It was my first time
yesterday. The facility is very relaxing, clean and
Christina, the instructor is great. She kept an eye on
everyone correcting posture and giving support. I have some
health issues such as high blood pressure so I found the hot
Yoga kind of intense for me. I think if I'm in good shape I
would've really loved it. The heat got to me but slept well
Fun and personal place to
It is in a very
convenient location, the yoga instructor was very
knowledgeable and the temperature of the 'hot' yoga was just
right. Loved it!

The instructor pays attention and if necessary corrects my
posture so that i get the most out of this class. The place
is very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this
classes are smaller than the ones at the regular gym. It was
a more one on one experience. The choice of hot and non hot
yoga. There were different rooms for different classes. The
instructors paid attention to needs of their class
participants. The owner was one of the instructors. The
passion for yoga and committment displayed by her was very
impressive. I am looking forward to my next class.
