The Movement Factory Offers Inviting Classes For Adults

Pilates Springboard Classes at The Movement Factory

The Movement Factory, a new Pilates, Dance, and Fitness studio, located in the Lake Erie Building in Lakewood, offers a variety of classes seven days a week for adults of all ages and fitness levels. Alyssa Lee Wilmot, the owner and head instructor, professional choreographer, dancer and certified instructor, brings over 16 years of experience to her clients. The Movement Factory’s goal is to help individuals to lead healthy and expressive lives while becoming stronger and more connected to their bodies.

Prior to returning to Northeast Ohio, Alyssa taught dance, Pilates, and fitness in the San Francisco Bay Area for 10 years. Alyssa is realizing her dreams of creating a studio in Cleveland that promotes wellness, movement, and fun.

"I created The Movement Factory to offer a unique space for adults that reminds us that movement is natural and our bodies inherently love to move – the more we move, the better we feel about ourselves, our health, and our lives. The Movement Factory is a welcoming and friendly studio. The key to staying fit is finding a type of exercise that you look forward to, find fun, and truly enjoy doing,” Alyssa says.

Alyssa holds a Master in Fine Arts in Dance Choreography and Performance from Mills College, Oakland, CA; is a Certified ZUMBA® Fitness instructor, and is a Pilates Method Alliance Certified Pilates Mat & Equipment Instructor. Alyssa is also a dance professor at Cuyahoga Community College, and has served as a visiting professor at other colleges and universities, most recently at The College of Wooster.

The Movement Factory offers group classes in Pilates Mat and Springboard, ZUMBA® Fitness, Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ladies’ Booty Camp, and others, along with private sessions. The studio is equipped with new Pilates equipment, ballet barres, yoga and fitness props. It also features a sprung floor system that is safe on knees and hips. The Movement Factory plans to offer classes in PiYo™ and Booty Barre® in upcoming months. Also scheduled are basic ballroom workshops, starting Saturday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m.

Please contact the studio at or (216) 712-4622 for more information. Visit The Movement Factory during their grand opening on Feb. 9 from 3-9 p.m. to meet the instructors, take free mini classes, and find out what moves you!
