Pilates is worth every penny. It is nice to find a pilates studio that offers the mat, reformer, and the pilates chair. Each week a different piece of equipment is used. In the beginner classes you learn the basics of each piece of equipment and how to use the equipment safely. Oliver is a great instructor who mixes up the routine each week so it is always challenging!

04:25 13 Feb 20
Really great studio — small sizes classes, all the Pilates equipment, and a good workout!
22:00 10 Feb 20
I can't say enough good things about Tone Pilates! The classes are amazing and with lots of variety in exercises and level of difficulty. Oliver is awesome and super dedicated to help everyone achieve their potential. Highly recommended.
21:52 10 Feb 20
I highly recommend this studio as a place for both beginners and advanced students who are looking to align/tone there bodies, while also elevating both mind and body. Pilates has truly changed my life and I’m so happy I found a studio with the best instructors!Thank you so much Oliver :)

the Good Series

Oliver's methodical and disciplined training approach has made a big dent in reaching my personal fitness goals! As an avid cyclist, his pilates classes has not only cured my persistent knee pain but improved my cycling performance immensely. Thanks Oliver!
00:54 10 Dec 19
Small but cozy Studio at a very convenient location. Instructors are super attentive, which helps a lot for precise movements. And I like that we get weekly rotation of equipment, it increase the variety of exercise, so much more fun!! I would highly recommend this place.
06:28 17 Oct 19
I have been taking Pilates classes for many years now and even in different countries, and I can say with no doubt that Tone Pilates is a great studio! The instructors are very knowledgeable, they respect everyone's limits but also push you to give your best in class and improve every day. Definitely recommend!
19:13 15 Oct 19
Pilates is fairly new to me and I chose Tone Pilates because they offered an 8 week Beginner Series. Given the small class sizes, each student is given the attention they need to perform each exercise to the best of their ability. I've noticed a big improvement in my day to day life since starting at Tone Pilates and look forward to continuing there.
23:15 11 Oct 19
The flagship of this pilates studio is for sure the class size; and not to mention the instructor attention on how you execute an exercise. He is scrupulous, qualify and always focused on your wellness. I would strongly recommend this studio to anyone who is looking for a real pilates experience; they provide classes for each level.
18:57 11 Oct 19
Tone Pilates has an amazing energy and the whole team are very nice, thoughtful and caring of your restrictions. The studio is clean, smells awesome and the bathrooms are well equipped (and super clean) so you can take a shower right after a class. It also has an amazing view of the marina.
21:15 09 Oct 19
Taking Pilates is possibly one of the best decisions I've ever made towards my health and wellness. The team at Tone Pilates has made the learning curve fun, interesting, challenging and rewarding. Oliver and Brita are a great team to have on side! They are knowledgable and supportive of my fitness goals. The studio is a lovely space and very welcoming. I'm so happy with the way Pilates has been shaping and toning my body. I feel younger, stronger, fitter than ever before and I've tried so many different workouts. I've been able to return running again after severe knee pain, that prevented my from being able to run. Pilates has given me back strength in my legs and my whole body that I've lacked for years. Don't wait, get your health back today and there is no better place than Tone Pilates!
15:52 09 Oct 19
I have been to a lot of Pilates studios as I have been doing this for over 10 years and this one is great! Small class size so you get personalized attention. The instructors are attentive so nothing gets by them...trust me I try! You never know when you come in for a group class if it will be on the reformer, tower, chair or mat. And that makes classes interesting! The classes are affordable compared to other studios, which makes my pocketbook happy. Try them out!
15:19 09 Oct 19
Good studio with small classes. The studio is small but they have managed to use the spaces efficiently with a lot of different equipment. Instructors are very good and and are great at giving you feedback which is very important when your working out.
22:44 16 Sep 19
What I like about Tone Pilates is that each student gets a lot of attention from the instructor. I consistently receive corrections on how to execute an exercise properly including correct breathing. The studio has classes for variety of levels. The instructors help you progress and build strength before you jump into more sophisticated movement. The studio is very clean and well organized and has all types of Pilates equipment. The classes are almost never the same and are always fun to be in. I am happy I found this spot and would recommend it over and over again!
18:49 18 Aug 19
Tone Pilates is a friendly clean and relaxing place for Pilates.Oliver is a kind and attentive instructor who keeps each class fresh and challenging.I am extremely happy I chose to learn Pilates in this location.
23:05 19 Jul 19
Pilates is new for me and I am truly appreciating the learning curves and challenges it offers. For me it is a nice blend of stretching and resistance training. There are so many variations of exercising with the equipment. Tone Pilates is wonderful at explaining how all the equipment works and you can gradually increase the intensity of your workouts. Classes are nice and small for individual attention. I am loving it and highly recommend it for men and women of all ages.
16:27 19 Jul 19
Our daughter introduced Darlene & I to Tone Pilates and absolutely loves the studio. We had no concept of what Pilates was but after going through the 8 week beginner sessions during which Oliver introduced us to all the various aspects , we were totally sold on Tone Pilates and have signed up for further sessions. Oliver & Brita move the classes along at a nice pace while paying a lot of attention to Form. We are always amazed at how quickly the time passes and how much better we have both felt as a result of the exercises.
01:13 12 Jun 19
Great trainer, great equipment, high quantity classes, great environment! Best place!
06:42 07 Jun 19
I love Tone Pilates! Oliver is a great, encouraging instructor. Given the small class sizes, he can give each student the attention needed to perform the exercises to the best of their ability. I started with the Beginner Series, which laid down a great foundation to move onto the more difficult classes. I started pilates to increase my core strength and reduce back pain, and I feel a huge difference in just a few months of weekly classes! Coming to class at Tone Pilates is something I look forward to every week!
02:35 04 Jun 19
I started at Tone Pilates a month ago, coming once a week and I feel so good that I decided to do twice a week. It's a great location and excellent instructors.
18:13 24 May 19
I would definitely recommend Oliver and Tone Pilates to everyone! I don't normally give reviews but Oliver and this studio are exceptional. I have taken classes at multiple community centres before but with Oliver is different. He is patient and always checks in during the session to make sure I have the correct posture and adjust the weights and springs if needed. The equipment and facilities are sanitized properly. If you are the kind of people who are searching for a personalized studio for pilates practice, Tone Pilates is the best place to go!
20:52 22 May 19
I started with beginners series couple months ago and have been going to tone pilates since then. Oliver is attentive instructor and notices details that helps to improve my movement in a small sized class. I like challenges in his program with different equipments. I can feel the difference after every class. I look forward to next session :)
03:23 15 May 19
I highly recommend Tone Pilates for anyone looking for technical classical pilates. The small classes are structured so each person can focus on form and receives individual attention. Quite the breath of fresh air comparing to other studios that pack you in. The easy access from the seawall and classes at a reasonable rates makes this studio even more desirable in the summer months. Thank you, Oliver!
21:17 30 Apr 19
Tone Pilates studio is a great place for people looking for a Pilates studio in Vancouver! Oliver is a very attentive and enthusiastic instructor, always taking the time to look at our form and explain how Pilates can help us achieve our goals.
21:25 27 Apr 19
Tone Pilates is awesome! Super supportive and engaging teaching that uses all the apparatus to keep things interesting! Lots of encouragement combined with challenging moves helped me find my abs again!
01:56 27 Apr 19
Oliver is a fantastic instructor. He pays attention to everyone's needs in the class and is very extremely knowledgable. I've noticed a big change in my performance over several months and I am confident it's because of the classes I've been attending here- highly recommended!
15:42 02 Apr 19
Tone Pilates is a refreshing change. All new clients are required to go through 8-weeks of training to ensure they learn and execute the exercises correctly, which means maximum benefits from the classes. And everyone - a max of 4 per class! - is at the same level. The attention to form and muscle engagement is super helpful, and for me means I'm less likely to re-injure myself. I do love that good exercise stiffness the next day and have already noticed a difference in my running form!
17:24 20 Mar 19
Small, friendly, accessible and affordable pilates classes. Lots of variety in equipment used and exercises. Oliver is an excellent, approachable teacher!
19:40 18 Mar 19
Just moved to the area and have found a gem of a Pilates studio within walking distance. Oliver is professional and friendly. I look forward to adding another class.
01:34 15 Mar 19
I was looking for good beginner Pilates classes and I stumbled upon Tone Pilates. I’m so glad that I did! Oliver is super nice and a great instructor. I would recommend this to everyone! :)
03:17 06 Mar 19
I can't recommend this place enough. I took the Beginner Series classes last Fall, and have since moved on to Rookie Classes. Oliver is a fantastic instructor, always paying close attention to form, which the small group setting especially allows for. As someone who also does a lot of strength training and cardio (mostly spin), Pilates has only proven to enhance my overall fitness, particularly where conditioning, flexibility, and posture are concerned. Also, beautiful location!
21:18 03 Mar 19
Oliver is amazing, exactly what I was looking for on a classical pilates instructor!
02:00 28 Feb 19
It took me awhile to find a Pilates studio in Vancouver that is not just rehab based. I came across Tone Pilates one day, and there is no going elsewhere. Oliver is an awesome instructor who runs his Pilates classes with a variety of equipment so it’s always challenging and fun. Love the small group classes and the personalised attention. I’m always learning different ways to strengthen my core and muscles that I’ve never thought existed.
06:08 13 Feb 19
Love how affordable and small the classes are! You get personalized attentions and Oliver sure keeps Pilates interesting for newbies like me.
02:46 04 Feb 19
I appreciate the small class size and easy seawall location. Oliver is great with cueing, offers variety of exercises and provides an excellent space for pilates. After graduating from the 8 week beginners course, I’ve been continuing with one class a week.
03:32 31 Jan 19
My experience at Tone Pilates has been amazing! Oliver is building a fabulous community! Classes are very well run, include a engaging variety of pilates exercises and are always grounded in the principles of pilates with personal feedback and assistance to uncover deeper layers of strength and control.
02:50 31 Jan 19
This is the first place I have done pilates, and I only have good things to say about it. The classes are amazing, Oliver is great and very friendly, and since the classes are small (up to 4 people) we can ask for specific exercises we like and have a great time. I strongly suggest you give TonePilates a chance if you are interested!
01:46 31 Jan 19
Tone Pilates is definitely a great place to take your pilates classes in Vancouver. Oliver is an amazing instructor, always teaching with enthusiasm and carefullness! The studio always very clean, organized and with great energy.
01:10 31 Jan 19
The classes are excellent and great for both beginners and more advanced levels. I started with the beginners course and been hooked ever since. Oliver is an excellent teacher and the small class sizes makes it possible for him to give attention to each student. I highly recommend this studio.
01:02 31 Jan 19
Amazing place for a wonderful person inside. Arrived from Italy and chose this place to do some good Pilates during the stay. Best place in town to train!
09:20 22 Dec 18
Tone Pilates was recommended to me by my previous Pilates instructor (who I'd taken classes from for years, and who Oliver had trained under), and I've been very happy!Oliver is thorough and encouraging, with a focus on bettering the body through proper moving, rather than rushing the workout. He breaks down movements when needed, offering clear cues and advice. Classes are small in size, which allows Oliver to be mindful of each client while maintaining a good, fun flow. I hope more time slots open up so that I can book classes more frequently!Bonus: there are showers, water bottles, and hair elastics available if needed.
06:04 13 Dec 18
I wanted to try pilates so I signed up for beginners's series class with Oliver. I was looking for a chilled space where I could learn the basics and have a good workout. That was about a year ago. Got that and even more! Oliver is a great teacher, always very helpful, takes time to explain the exercises, gives valuable individual feedback and introduces a new challenge with every class. The location is also super convenient - I enjoy the warm-up bike ride down the Seaside path.I am glad that I have been able to learn pilates with Oliver at Tone Pilates and that I am continuing to learn and push myself with every class and with every exercise thanks to the set up. Pilates have been become part of my weekly workout. Looking forward to the next class!
04:15 14 Nov 18
I think Tone Pilates is a great boutique Pilates studio! I used to go to larger Pilates classes and thought they were great, but Tone, with its small class sizes (max of 4) offers a much more personalized and satisfying Pilates training experience. Oliver (the instructor) pays close attention to little details such as how your spine articulates or your shoulders rise etc. I find all these subtle adjustments make a big difference to the exercises. Another aspect I really like is the rotation of Pilates equipment between matwork, reformer, tower and chair (It is not just reformer and/or matwork, which can get a bit stale). Every class uses a different piece of equipment, which means you get a better workout overall, as your body is trying something different every week. It also keeps it interesting and varied.Overall I really enjoy the friendly environment with knowledgeable instruction. I have found my core strength has greatly improved since I started and also notice the difference when I go for long runs (it’s amazing how many little muscles in your feet and legs that Pilates can help strengthen for runners!). Overall highly recommended!
18:49 12 Nov 18
This is not my first review for Tone pilates. I have been coming here for two years now, and I have learnt so much from the instructor Oliver. Oliver teaches traditional Joseph Pilates, he is very mindful, he gives clear guidance ,he is so experienced that whoever has an issue during the exercise,he is always quick to identify what the problem is and how to prevent it from happening. Oliver is very diligent as well, he gives us instructions at the same time he is able to guide you how to breath. You will never feel at lose , his undivided presence allows you to truly and fully focus on your excise. the class is always fun and powerful. I enjoy the small boutique-style class ,people here who do pilates are really nice and friendly. It is a great place in Vancouver to learn and practice pilate.
05:55 31 Oct 18
I've taken some private classes at Tone Pilates and think it's a great studio. I took one star off my review because I think it's a bit small. I prefer lots of space to work out in. Other than that, these folks offer precise and personalized instruction. I have never been made to work so hard!
01:57 17 Oct 18
Wonderful pilates sessions at an affordable price!
06:04 10 Oct 18
I love Tone Pilates for its personal approach and creative classes. Oliver is an excellent attentive teacher. I always look forward to my next session.
00:40 10 Oct 18
Tone pilates is a great little studio for pilates. Oliver is very knowledgable, and has lots of different equipment to keep the classes interesting and challenging. Since moving into the intermediate classes, I've definitely noticed changes in my muscle tone, definition and flexibility. Highly recommend!
02:10 03 Sep 18
As a newcomer to pilates, Tone Pilates offered me a friendly and non-threatening environment to learn this great form of exercise. Oliver is a patient, clear, concise and skilled instructor working out of a great location and offering a variety of classes with convenient scheduling options. Thanks Tone Pilates!
18:35 28 Aug 18
I have without a doubt benefitted from attending Tone Pilates for over a year now, and this practice continues to be integrated into my weekly fitness routine. Oliver is an exceptional and informative instructor. I appreciate the smaller class size and hands-on attention/corrections he provides. I also appreciate the variety. Each class is different.The core awareness I have received from Tone Pilates supports my other fitness activities which has resulted in being stronger with better alignment.I've also appreciated getting to know the other participants in the classes who are dedicated to their practice too. We have a lot of laughs (and a lot of 100's!)
01:34 22 Aug 18
Oliver is an immensely thorough & knowledgable pilates instructor. I have practiced pilates on a reformer for over 10 years and I am thrilled to have discovered an instructor that offers an intense, challenging, beneficial & fun class. The location, equipment & facilities are wonderful as well!
14:48 13 Aug 18
Oliver is highly professional, masters his art and pays close attention to the needs of his clients. He checks on everyone regularly, in-person or via email, and listens to feedback carefully. I really enjoy his teaching method and his gentle push to go a little further beyond what I think I can do. Lastly, the location is just awesome. It feels good just to ride my bike to his classes.
21:35 10 Aug 18
As a professional contemporary dancer and yoga teacher, I have had the opportunity to study with some great movement teachers. Oliver is one of these teachers. He teaches from a deep understanding of Pilates in his own body. His special strength is being able to give me just the right image to work with. I always leave a session with Oliver with some new and transformative way to think about a particular element of my Pilates practice. I also leave having accomplished much more difficult movement than I thought was possible, and all without ever feeling pushed outside of my comfort zone.
04:58 06 Jan 18
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started doing Pilates with Oliver. I had a shoulder injury which was preventing me from going to the gym or even doing everyday household chores. A friend suggested Pilates and Oliver as my instructor. Within weeks I started to increase my mobility, and within a few short months I was back at 90%. Amazing! Oliver was kind, caring, understanding and patient, and helped me get back to a full life.
18:46 30 Dec 17
I am now a pilates convert thanks to Oliver. The classes are fun, challenging, and Oliver's concise exercise explanations and guidance really enhance the experience and ensure I am really getting everything out of every movement. I feel a dramatic difference in my inner core strength and overall life endurance. Thank You Tone Pilates!
20:25 04 Dec 17
I have just completed the Beginners Classes and found Oliver to be a wonderful teacher. He is very patient and was happy to explain the movements to us again and again, ensuring we were comfortable.
16:20 02 Nov 17
Oliver is very passionate about Pilates. His class is quite full and complete either on the mat or the board,on chair or reformer. He explains intructions very clear.He is very respectful ,professional and encouraging. Classes levels are different,but they all happen in a nice clean studio. Equipments are advanced and they are all being used under guidance properly.It is a great environment.i highly recommend it!
04:05 28 Oct 17
Oliver is an expert. He knows what level of exercises that fit his students. He is very careful and patient in explaining how to use the equipment. I can feel the difference in my body structure after each class. I am glad I have found him here. I am continuing into the Rookie level after this beginner level.
23:24 23 Oct 17
Tone Pilates is a 6 stars out of 5!Oliver is a thoughtful and fun instructor. Going to Tone Pilates weekly has not only improved my core, but is an added contributor to feeling stronger in my other workouts.
23:09 09 Oct 17
01:14 09 Oct 17
Oliver is an excellent teacher, attentive to the physical abilities of each student while providing great workouts. He is thorough, considerate and flexible... with a great sense of humour that makes the Pilates session all the more fun.
18:23 06 Oct 17
Tone Pilates is awesome! Good price, nice studio, great location. And the instructor is the best! Always explaining the exercises in a clear and detailed way and making sure you're performing them correctly.
20:09 05 Oct 17
Oliver is a fantastic teacher - great cueing, awesome variety of equipment and routines - and the small group size means that you get a lot of personal attention to help you perfect your form. Love this place!!!
16:16 04 Oct 17
Going to my weekly session with Oliver at Tone Pilates is the perfect way to end the week. I am noticing a real increase in my core strength and it is improving my ability in my weight lifting and other workouts. Besides being challenged by the exercises, there is always some laughter, too!
05:31 03 Oct 17
Oliver is a thoughtful and dedicated instructor who utilizes a wide variety of equipment to keep his classes interesting. He does his best to modify routines to suit all abilities and accommodate injury limitations. The prices at Tone Pilates are very reasonable for the area too!
04:26 03 Oct 17
Oliver is a very special and gifted teacher. David and I have been with Oliver since he opened Tone Pilates in Leg-in-Boot Square. He embodies what Pilates is all about and has a way of explaining the various exercises that makes sense both from a how-to and a why-to perspective. Mindful of our age and stage, Oliver opened a special class for Retirees - further evidence of his ability to teach to the needs of his clients. Sally and David Rehorick
03:48 03 Oct 17
For years I tried to find a Pilates class that would help, instead of hurt, my chronic back and hip pain. Fortunately, I found Tone Pilates and Oliver's classes have helped from the start! Oliver is excellent at modifying exercises to help individuals based on their abilities and/or physical constraints. I also enjoy the variety of exercises from class to class by getting to use the many different pieces of equipment in the studio, and I love the smaller class sizes to get the person attention when needed. Oliver cares about his students and it shows! I'm so thankful I found Tone Pilates and how it's helped me.
21:27 10 Sep 17
This is Pilates at its best! Small group sessions at a reasonable price with great equipment at a great gym. Oh, and Oliver will make you work and make progress.
05:09 25 Mar 17
Before I met Oliver, I thought Pilates was for pretty much exclusively for women. Oliver showed me that Pilates can be a vigorous, masculine workout if that's what you want. Pilates aside, classes happen within Le Physique (False Creek) which is a great facility. I especially like the fact there are four private washrooms and each has its own shower with clean towels waiting for you. I'm impressed.
23:04 15 Aug 16
I had a great experience with Oliver and his Tone Pilates tools. After each session, I felt stronger and more balanced with a heightened body awareness, all from the convenience of my own home! I recommend Oliver's class to anyone looking to build strength, flexibility and agility in a fun and dynamic way, for all levels.
23:05 11 May 16
“I am a senior with multiple physical issues arising from arthritis and a rotator cuff injury. Over my 8 months of individual twice-weekly sessions with Oliver, he was always mindful of my limitations but encouraged and challenged me to try new exercises that I could do. I have missed his inspiring enthusiasm and look forward to returning to Pilates with him.”Gail Low, M.A.,Retired Clinical Counsellor
05:16 19 Apr 16
I had the pleasure of taking a series of Pilates classes with Oliver. He was always upbeat and had an infectious positive energy that made even the more difficult classes feel uplifting. He is a gifted teacher, who used stories and metaphors to help me understand my body better – his attention to detail is impressive and I felt very safe with him even when I was pushing my body to its limits. I plan to continue my Pilates practice with Oliver as my teacher, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a reliable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable teacher.
04:39 14 Apr 16
I've wanted to try Pilates for a long time, so had a 1:1 class with Oliver. He was friendly, relaxed, professional and informative. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and can see Pilates changing my life. Highly recommend Oliver!
