The physical benefits of regular Pilates sessions is medically proven and has been reiterated by every physician I have encountered. In addition, the psychological benefit of spending an hour weekly with Natasha Castellano of Kallpa Fitness was an unexpected (but now just as important) bonus. She is one of the most dedicated and inspirational women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Over the past ten months of doing Pilates, my posture has improved and my core has gotten stronger. I’ve struggled with back problems stemming from an accident 5+ years ago, and Pilates has helped strengthen my back and taught me exercises to help with lingering pain and discomfort.

I have been with Kallpa Fitness, using Pilate’s machines with Natasha, for more than 10 years. Natasha is one of the most educated and knowledgeable Pilates instructors in the tri-state area. Her Pilates studio is private with a dedicated door so I feel completely safe in this time of Covid. I am a 70 year old male who works a demanding full time job. I am able to do so virtually pain free with one or occasionally two Pilates sessions per week. Maintaining core strength and stretching is essential to my health, mobility, and balance.
Natasha, thank you for a great spin class last week! That was some tough hill we had to climb. I absolutely loved it! Thank you for pushing our limits and making every class a great experience!

Natasha is a wonderful and compassionate trainer! She worked with my mother after brain surgery, radiation and chemo. She took extra time with our family showing us exercises we could do with my mom on our own to help strengthen her weakened body. I was very impressed with the efforts Natasha went to, to help not only my mother but our entire family.

I was told by neurologist to try Pilates in order to maintain pain from fibromyalgia and scoliosis. Natasha was recommended by a fitness expert. After a year of training with Natasha my scoliosis is much better and I have less pain in my joints. I do not take any medication for my fibromyalgia as my medication is Pilates and exercise. I cannot thank Natasha enough. Natasha’s expertise in fitness and Pilates changed my world.

I have been training with Natasha for several years now. She has helped me to develop and maintain a body that is strong and flexible. As a ballroom dancer and substitute school teacher, it is important to me to feel fit and healthy. As a result of the training programs Natasha designs for me, I have a reserve of energy to draw upon when I need it. Natasha is a skilled trainer. She is well-informed about the latest techniques in physical fitness training. The fitness programs she develops specifically for me are clear and precise. I like the fact that I can always contact Natasha if I have a follow-up question. Natasha is always pleasant and cheerful. Her positive attitude about the importance of staying fit is a joy. Her energetic approach to training is an inspiration. Natasha has become not only my trainer but a friend as well.

Spinning with Natasha virtually has been a great experience. Since Covid I have not been to the gym. I need the motivation and encouragement of a good instructor. Natasha encourages and inspires her class to do their best. There is no one more delightful, caring or concerned for her students than Natasha. I look forward to every spin class.

Natasha’s energy, talent and experience as a personal trainer and Certified Pilates instructor, is second to none. I feel so fortunate to have found Natasha and Kallpa Fitness, and that Kallpa Fitness found me! Over the past 11 years, I have seen for myself that following Natasha’s excellent, enthusiastic instruction, has not only strengthened my body, but my mind, as well. She utilizes a total approach to her fitness program. Natasha is committed to being sure that your time is utilized to the max, and that you leave her studio feeling energized, relaxed, and revitalized. There is never a time when that has not been the case for me. In fact, week to week, my time with Natasha is a constant that I thoroughly enjoy. Without hesitation, I recommend Natasha and Kallpa Fitness to anyone who wants to feel better, look better, and most of all, spend a little time with the right person and program that will help you meet your goals.

I have been fortunate to work with Natasha as a Pilates trainer for over ten years. I have watched my health improve tremendously as a result of her guidance. So, when the quarantine was put in place, I was worried about backtracking. Fortunately, Natasha created online Pilates classes that have been wonderful! And, to make the challenge even more significant, she added the "Magic Circle” to one of her classes. The Magic Circle challenges me in new ways, helps me to maintain my health and improve my overall Pilates skills. It's always an adventure in fitness, and I look forward to my Tuesday morning class with Natasha and the Magic Circle.

Training with Natasha helped me get into the best shape of my entire life. I look better at the age of 33 than I did in college and high school. Natasha does a great job of balancing being supportive and pushing you beyond your comfort level. I enjoy continuing to raise my fitness and intensity level by performing new exercise techniques monthly. I am never bored and I am constantly challenged by every training routine. I recommend Kallpa Fitness to anyone who wants to find an efficient and fun way to reach your health and fitness goals.

I have known and trained with Natasha for approximately 15 years. While training with Natasha I have seen a dramatic improvement in my health and overall fitness. Natasha is a great trainer that assess your needs, knows when and how to challenge you and educates on living a healthy lifestyle. I have had the opportunity to work with other trainers and find that Natasha is the best. With Natasha, you may be her client but you are treated like a member of her family.

I love my Pilates classes with Natasha and have benefited greatly from them. They have helped me improve my balance, flexibility, and build body strength. She is a wonderful instructor who emphasizes developing a strong core by varying the exercise routine. I have been working with Natasha for more than 6 years, and now, through Virtual Pilates classes, she continues to teach me new routines.
- Agnes Leshner
Natasha is wonderful. She is very patient and good at teaching. She always ensures that I have a proper form and a good posture so that I can get the maximum effects of the exercises. She definitely helps me get a stronger core, muscles, and good posture. I have been doing Pilates for 4 months, and I already see that my posture and body shape has changed. I love it and I love Natasha!! I highly recommend!!!

Me siento feliz de poder hacer clases virtuales con Natasha, ahora que estoy en casa todo el tiempo debido a COVID-19, espero con ansias ese momento. Si bien es cierto no he practicado Pilates por mucho tiempo, siento que me ayuda a sentirme bien y disipada dándome energía y ánimo para continuar adaptándome al cambio de forma de vida que hemos tenido que hacer. Natasha es muy profesional y tiene un trato muy especial con todos sus clientes, haciéndolos sentir muy a gusto durante sus sesiones.

I have been working with Natasha Castellano for less than a year but during that time I’ve made huge strides in my fitness program and I have lost nearly ten pounds without dieting. Natasha has tailored my workouts to my specific needs as a woman in her fifties with a chronic injury. She is a joy to work with. Natasha is extremely knowledgeable about fitness and she is a person who radiates a sense of well being that is contagious. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
- Melanie Choukas-Bradley
I am continually amazed at how knowledgeable and adept Natasha is in modifying my sessions to accommodate my back and neck problems. Because of her, I have gone for many years now without any flare-ups.
