Our main studio at 13000 Athens Avenue #203, is inside a working factory, on the 2nd floor. To access the 2nd floor studio, please enter the main glass doors on Athens, go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, and turn left. On weekends and evenings enter through the entrance of the side parking lot that says "loading dock," go to the 2nd floor, turn left out of the stairwell, left again walking toward The Wrestling Factory, through the red door, and then around the corner to the left - you will find us there.
Our Pilates studio at 13001 Athens Avenue #205 is on the 2nd floor of the building at the very back of the industrial park by the security guard booth off of the Bramley entrance (the back of the factory). If entering off Athens, drive all the way back past the industrial buildings. Turn left at the guard booth, and then take another immediate left. If entering from Bramley, pass the stop sign and turn left into the parking lot. There is a smaller, separate parking lot where you can park, and then you enter and walk up the stairs or take the elevator to the 2nd floor. After you get upstairs, walk around the hallway and you will see our Pilates studio on the right hand side.
