  • To think my body could change after age 60 was unimaginable to me 7 years ago. On the other hand, during my entire fitness career (50+ years), I never had a champion until Deb Lemon. Her unwavering passion, encouragement, and kindness inspired me to put aside my age and misgivings, trusting that I, too, could be successful practicing Pilates. I was having so much fun that when the transformation began, it was almost secondary. To this day, my body continues changing for the better– thus the power of Pilates and the influence of Deb Lemon. Love her to death...She's a Badass BodyBoss - soon to be New York's finest!

  • Deb made Pilates accessible for me and our town and made me a lifelong pilates (and Deb) fan. Her passion and commitment to pilates and her clients make it so that you can't help but improve your own practice and your body! There is no better workout and no better teacher, you won't regret working with Deb...your body will thank you for it:)

  • I cannot begin to explain how amazing Bodies by Pilates and more specifically Deb Lemon are! I first started doing Pilates with Deb in 2013 and haven’t regretted it for one second. Her expertise in movement and exercise are unparalleled. The manner with which she teaches her classes is filled with compassion and she has an uncanny ability to make her students immediately feel like family. Deb’s love of Pilates is infectious, as evidenced by the fact that I am about to finish up my own Peak Pilates certification under her tutelage. She is beyond compare and I look forward to taking a class at Bodies by Pilates FiDi the next time I’m in town! NYC is lucky to have her!

  • I have been practicing Pilates with Deb for 7 plus years. She has helped me find capabilities in my body that I didn't know existed. Deb is a charismatic motivator with a passion for life, health and fitness that is infectious. She has an extensive knowledge of Pilates, an obvious love for her work, and a sincere desire to help her clients achieve their personal best. Look out Manhattan - you are in for a treat.
