What Makes Us Different?
At SC Pilates we strive to provide the best Pilates experience available in Southern California.
SC Pilates features top-notch facilities and equipment, guided by the Pilates legend, Barefoot Wally.
Please feel free to explore the site and capture a glimpse of our outstanding facilities. SC Pilates is known across Southern California for its unequaled instructors who take the time to understand the needs and desires of clients. Each body is different and deserves to be treated as such, leading Wally to establish an evaluation process enabling instructors to create unique workouts that fit your needs.
Wally, the lead instructor and owner at South County Pilates, distinguishes himself from other instructors with his extensive background in both Pilates and Martial Arts. Wally trained under Grand Master Sang Kyu Shim, received multiple letters of commendation from the Kukkiwon, and obtained the rank of Master. In 1986, Wally received the Instructor of the Year Award from the World Martial Arts Association (WMAA) for his dedication and deep understanding of body movement and function. Wally was captivated by the way in which Pilates strengthens and balances to create a healthy, functional body. He received his Pilates instruction and certification under Rael Isacowitz, founder of Body Arts and Science International (BASI). Wally has more than 35 years of experience in the fitness and martial arts industries. Since 2003, Wally has owned and operated his own Pilates studios in Orange County.
It has been our good fortune to have had lessons with Wally for more than 5 years and we can say without exaggeration that the experience has been transformative. Not only are we stronger and more flexible — indeed we are now in better shape than ever before — but gone are the occasional backaches and minor pains of earlier years. As a Pilates instructor, Wally is incredibly responsible and knowledgeable, and a sure grasp of the body and its mechanics lets him perfectly tailor his lessons, which, with a seemingly endless variety of exercises, are never routine or boring. As a person, he is utterly trustworthy, kind, and gentle, in sum, a wonderful person. We can add, again with no risk of overstatement, that we would willingly sacrifice a great deal, including all the “extras” in our lives, sooner than give up our time with Wally.
