The studio offers a range of small-group fitness classes, private training on Pilates Reformer machines and a retail boutique, according to a press release provided to the NNBW.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, class sizes are limited to 10 students.

Studio Sculpt is founded and operated by Nicole Shutt. According to the press release, Shutt’s signature classes combine dance- and pilates-inspired movement with strength work and high-intensity intermittent training (HIIT).

“I’m bringing a unique style of exercise to Reno; no one is offering anything quite like this,” Shutt said in a statement. “Movement is therapy and my goal is to have people leave class feeling stronger and more exhilarated.”

Shutt has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Arizona, is certified in three different barre fitness methods, and is certified in Ron Fletcher Pilates. She is also a longtime ballet dancer, having appeared in dozens of shows at The Pioneer Theater in Reno, and in Tucson, Arizona.
