Durango Pure Pilates and its owner, Kimberly McKnight, offer the best of pure, authentic Classical Pilates, a method of fitness training developed nearly 100 years ago and now practiced by millions world-wide. Its enduring popularity is based on its unique whole-body approach to exercise – from head to toe. Its method simultaneously increases strength and flexibility, improves balance and coordination, corrects muscle imbalances and decreases chronic pain.  And its low-impact, precisely executed movements ensure a safe and progressive development of the body’s strength. This approach promises anyone, of any age and ability, exceptional results.

With more than 16 years of experience, Kimberly continues this ‘Movement of Movement’, supporting those seeking real and long-lasting results from their fitness efforts. She specializes in one-on-one, highly personalized training and finds particular enjoyment assisting those challenged by the effects of aging, sedentary lifestyles, and neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders. “The practice of Pilates goes far beyond building strength and flexibility. It informs us and guides our every movement – the way we walk, the way we stand, the way we breathe, the way we feel inside our own skin. It empowers us to embrace our bodies and our lives and inspires a lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle.”

“Mind and body must be coordinated, in order not only to accomplish maximum results with the minimum expenditure of mental and physical energy, but also to live as long as possible in normal health and enjoy the benefits of a useful and happy life.”
