Joanne Smith and Amy Deguio are the original founders of Studio 7, bringing more than 30 years of movement experience to New Hampshire’s Seacoast. Both have backgrounds in dance that began at an early age, eventually earning them scholarships and degrees in Dance from the University of New Hampshire. Years after college, their love of dance and movement took them away from their varying career paths and led them both back to the New Hampshire Seacoast to first introduce pilates and the GYROTONIC® method to others.
Studio 7 is the Seacoast’s first and only fully-equipped pilates and GYROTONIC® method fitness facility. Since the opening of this small studio in 2001, Joanne and Amy have gone through additional extensive trainings and certifications and have continued to expand their knowledge of human anatomy and movement. They also pioneered bringing the Xtend Barre® workout to the greater Portsmouth area. The studio has grown and offers a variety of group and private sessions with a knowledgeable and caring staff that want you to have a fun, positive, and effective fitness experience.
