Lior Schaim
Co-Founder & Director of Pure Balance Studio



Balance is having the right amount — not too much or too little — of any quality, which leads to harmony or evenness. Our system aligns, strengthens, and increases performance in a fun and challenging studio environment.

The Space

At Pure Balance, you are greeted by smiling Instructors, committed students, and a warm and positive atmosphere. You are not joining a studio, you are becoming part of a new community.
We welcome people of all ages and abilities. Where required, we offer a bespoke VIP service with sole use of studio space.
The studio features Pilates zones with the newest Balance Body equipment range with the cutting-edge Core Align.  The cardio and functional training zone is equipped with NoHRD water resistance, Rip 60 and Kesler.
Inspiring, well-appointed spaces and equipment will promote your enjoyment of the training process. Enjoy subtle custom chakra-balancing light therapy and treat yourself to our personal pampering products to refresh post workout, with purified water and complimentary towels.

Train smarter, not longer, integrating elements of traditional and clinical Pilates with cardio and endurance training for a complete workout system.

The studio is nothing like the big chains. It’s small in comparison but unlike those facilities, this gym offers a sense of family. You get to know the people you work out with and build a network of good friends
