All gain with no pain? It’s possible with STOTT Pilates. The precise strengthening and stretching method developed a century ago by Joseph Pilates has had immense benefits for those who practice it, but the system was based on old knowledge about the body and its functions. That’s why Melissa Siple, owner of Benefitness, is a STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer, teaching the method at her East Greenwich studio and traveling globally to train future instructors. STOTT, she says, “is the contemporary approach. As science has evolved, our method has evolved to better fit clients’ needs.”

Melissa loves how customizable STOTT is to each person’s fitness level and abilities. “It makes people feel successful,” she says. “It’s completely anatomically and physiologically appropriate for the person who’s doing it.” In addition to Pilates, Benefitness offers TRX, Barre, Cycle and personal training. Melissa is currently pursuing her PhD in global training and development, and she prides herself on having “the best of the best” trainers working for her - but that doesn’t mean she only trains top athletes. “People are looking to be fit and functional longer. We work with every body type,and age to be your best self.”
