The Studio

Pilates Plus aims to help individuals bring back the natural curve of their spine and align the body in order to enhance their confidence. Pilates Plus studios are composed of brand new and original Stott equipment and our main priority is giving high quality workouts to our clients. 

The Workout

Pilates is a low-impact exercise which focuses on strengthening the muscles. It is a type of exercise that was introduced by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. He developed a new physical fitness system calling this method as the “art of controlled movements” and said that, if it was properly executed, it would feel like a workout. Pilates aims to improve postural alignment and flexibility but also targets the core.

The Community

There are two types of instructors in the studio- the seniors and the juniors. The seniors are the instructors that are Stott certified and have undergone the proper trainings in the Vivian Zapanta studio in Manila. On the other hand, the junior instructor are the instructors that are only trained by the senior instructors.

We really love Pilates Plus Davao! Aside from a full-body (challenging yet fun) STOTT Pilates workout, the instructors are friendly, and the ambience is refreshing! You will not regret enrolling at Pilates Plus!

About Pilates Plus

Pilates Plus was established in 2014, initially with just four instructors, with a mission to help individuals restore the natural curve of their spine and align their bodies, ultimately boosting their confidence. Our studio specializes in Stott Pilates, offering two categories of instructors: seniors and juniors. The senior instructors are Stott certified and have undergone extensive training at the Vivian Zapanta studio in Manila. Conversely, the junior instructors receive training from the senior instructors.


With our humble beginnings, Pilates Plus operated from a single studio in Obrero. Over the years, our clientele grew significantly, along with the number of instructors. Eventually, our studio space became cramped and limited, prompting us to embark on a rebranding and expansion journey. In 2019, we proudly opened our second branch located at the Compound in Matina. In 2021, we celebrated the inauguration of our newest Azuela branch, bringing our total studio count to three. Alongside these expansions, we continue to advance and progress, with more instructors added to our team to ensure the highest quality of instruction across all three studios.
