Read what other says about The Workshop

“The Workshop is a one-stop shop for all your fitness and relaxation needs: it’s a pilates studio, CrossFit box, and spa all in one place. It has a minimalistic meets industrial chic ambiance. I live in Seattle but I drive all the way here to see Kim for spa services, it’s totally worth it! I’ve tried the facial, massage, and waxing services, and can confidently recommend all of them. This is not the swanky kind of spa that charges you for the “experience.” The spa portion of the space is smaller but practical.

I thought the one thing I couldn’t live without was the waxing service. Kim uses the best quality wax that doesn’t irritate my skin and makes it the least painful waxing experience I’ve had. One day, I decided to try a 30-minute massage with Kim and walked away feeling so relaxed and relieved of all my tension points, I had the most restful sleep that night. I’ve been coming back since then for the massage and I highly recommend it. Kim knows what she’s doing and if you like deeper pressure points, she’s your girl! The prices are more than reasonable for spa services. I have yet to try the workout classes, but looking forward to trying one soon.

P.S. They are on mindbody, so you can book all the classes and services online.
P.P.S. This place can be a bit hard to find on Google Maps, just look for Spud Fish & Chips.” – Vania K

“Kim is the best. She has an awesome atmosphere and the gym is so inviting. I highly recommend the Workshop for spa needs, crossfit, Pilates and just about everything else!” – Chelsea K.

“Kim is amazing! I can’t say enough. She has helped me tremendously with my skin care needs. I have always been pretty self conscious about my skin. I’ve always tried to hide imperfections with makeup. Since seeing Kim I’ve stopped wearing makeup and my skin looks and feels great. The best part is people are constantly getting my age wrong. I’ve had several people mistake me for being in my early thirties when I’m actually in my 40’s. Thanks Kim!” – Melissa W.

“This review is based off many spa appointments with Kim (co-owner) at The Workshop, I can solidly give her a full five stars. Kim has consistently impressed me with her professional knowledge, and above all has won my repeat business with her honesty and lovely demeanor. I adore Kim and owe her a great deal for my skin (less breakouts). Her awesome facials and waxing services are my go to and I am never disappointed. I’ve gone elsewhere in the past and nothing can compare to the quality, and experience that I receive at The Workshop. My next mission is to work out and take a few yoga and pilates classes. Their aesthetic studios are inviting and well equipped. Overall, I am so grateful to have found Kim and The Workshop.” – Amy J.

“My review is based on the spa services Kim provides. Kim is AMAZING in every way. She is extremely knowledgeable and you can really tell how passionate she is about what she does. She is top notch and very easy to talk to. I have followed her since she moved locations from MLT to Edmonds and would travel further for her if I needed to.” – Mary Ann N.

“This was the best facial I have EVER had! I have had many facials before but this was different. Kim who is co-owner, talked to me about my skin and what my problem areas are. She used organic products on my face that felt amazing while giving me a mini massage on my neck and head. I had chills most of the time it was so good. I plan on visiting regularly, because she is that amazing!”

“I’ve been doing CrossFit for the past 3 years and when I travel I always look for a box to do a drop-in workout. I’ve had the opportunity to try about 10 other boxes throughout the US and, overall, everyone was nice and I was able to get in a good workout. I’m very partial to my home box, Predation CrossFit, because our coaches are coaching us every minute of every class and I find that when you are lifting very heavy things or doing potentially dangerous gymnastic moves, it’s good to have someone keeping an eye on your form at all times. Usually, most other boxes do a met-con which is great when you’re just trying to get a workout in as you travel, but I’ve found that when other boxes have lifting WODs, they don’t do much coaching. In my travels, I’ve only found one other box, CrossFit Monterrey, that came close to the coaching I receive at my home box, until two days ago. I had tried another CrossFit box in Edmonds and it was OK but, on a whim, I thought I’d try the CrossFit class at The Workshop. I’m taking the time to write this review (which I never do) because I was blown away by how fantastic my experience was at The Workshop. Lana, our coach for the past two days, was nothing short of fantastic. Aside from having a contagiously happy personality, she is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to work with each of us on every move with detailed coaching during the entirety of both classes I attended. I felt like I was at my home box which is a great feeling when you’re the visitor dropping in from out of town. Let’s be honest, CrossFit is very physically taxing and is supposed to be extremely hard if you’re doing it right, but I truly enjoyed both classes she coached. I get to do one more class tomorrow morning and I’m already looking forward to it. My in-laws live in Edmonds so I’m here a couple times a year and from now on I know where I’ll be getting my CrossFit workouts in while I’m in town.” – Christopher H.

“We are a retired couple who share an ongoing package for Pilates instruction. We started in September, 2016 and have attended 2X weekly; one day for a mat class and the other day for our semi-private instruction. AnnMarie Snowden had been our instructor and we are continually amazed by her excellent communication skills, professional knowledge and awareness of pre-existing medical conditions. We took a two week vacation in October and while away, we realized that our bodies had really changed with improved posture and mobility, plus an increase in overall awareness for how we walk, sit, and go about our daily chores. Most evident was that my husband had a problem with his neck and was seeing a chiropractor regularly for adjustments to relieve his pain. After 4 weeks of working with AnnMarie, his pain was gone and now, almost 5 months later it is still gone and he no longer sees a chiropractor. We highly recommend working with AnnMarie and The Workshop.” – Karen M.

“I’ve been taking Pilates with Diane for three years and I love it. I started out with very little ability to move and now I’m strong in my core and my posture is improved and I love my workouts. The equipment is good and the training is fantastic. Katy, who owns the Pilates part of the studio, is an excellent teacher as well. Whatever your level of fitness is, you can be sure they will work with you where you are and help you get stronger.” – Alexis R.

“My name is Elizabeth Hatfield and I am writing this letter today because taking lessons at Pilates in the Village has drastically changed my quality of life.

I came to the studio skeptical. I have always been the person who thinks inside the box and only looks to “traditional” or “mainstream” methods to cure pain and get back in shape. But as a chronic sufferer of migraines and in constant pain from a muscle in my back, I knew that at just 28 it was time for a change and that meant looking at everything.

What I didn’t realize is that Pilates is more “traditional” than any machine I could ever climb on at the gym. In just 5 short months I no longer have back pain!!! My migraines are less frequent and the stress in my life is dramatically less due to that. I LOVE what Pilates has done for my quality of life and as an extra bonus I have lost a dress size! No matter what mood I come to the studio in, I leave feeling energized, refreshed and ready for the day’s challenges. I am hooked for life!
The instructors are incredible and ALWAYS take time to see how I am feeling mentally and physically that day to tailor my workout. No matter what physical shape you are in or what goals you have for yourself, Pilates has a challenging and a rewarding response to it.

I enthusiastically implore all to come and explore Pilates In the Village. After just a few classes you will know what all the buzz is about!” – Sincerely, Elizabeth Hatfield

“Katie’s laser-focus on training form enabled me to advance my workout way beyond what I thought were my “limits.” My time with her created a breakthrough that resulted in improved posture, the strongest core and my best figure to date! Her patience, encouragement and enthusiasm for Pilates made the whole process a delightful part of my day.” –Lenora Edwards, Pilates student since 2001

“Katie has that rare combination of skill, patience, enthusiasm, and intuition. She gets to know your body so she knows how and when to push you, when to offer encouragement. She quickly figures out which exercises work best for you. I highly recommend both Pilates and Katie!” – Bob Delf

“Thank you for all the years of training. When I started Pilates with you five years ago, my main goal was to strengthen my back to relieve me of my pain. I had a chronic back problem and had many years of treatment at the chiropractors.’

I tried three years of lifting weights and that did nothing for my back and actually made me bulk up.

Katie, your knowledge about Pilates and expert guidance has not only solved my many years of back pain, but has also given me flexibility as well. I’m 62 years old and am amazed at how much my body has improved.

I live in Carnation and followed you everywhere you advanced to. However, I had to decline from your upgrade to your new studio in Lynnwood because it was just impossible for me to travel that far twice a week. It was a hard decision and I miss your expert training and wonderful personality. You definitely give 100% to your profession and I would highly recommend you to anyone.

I wish you years of success!” – Respectfully, Amber D. Thompson

“I am 70 years old and Katie has been my loving goddaughter and instructor for many years. She is an amazing instructor and has helped me through many bouts of joint pain. I do not think I’d be as young a 70 if it were not for her. I have also watched and studied with other of her staff and would recommend any of them. This is the best place to get authentic Pilates.” – Carole Miguel
