“I discovered Pilates about 3 years ago when a friend of mine, who is a STOTT Pilates certified instructor, encouraged me to try one of her classes. I have always been very fitness focused. I enjoy boxing, bootcamps, weight training, Barre, yoga, and running. However, I had never tried Pilates. I was hooked after my first class! Pilates is the perfect compliment to my regular weight training and running program. I became such a regular at the studio where my friend taught and was such a fan of Pilates, that she suggested I train to become an instructor. Level I Matwork was my first training course and after completing that, I knew becoming an instructor was definitely what I wanted to do and I wanted to continue my training to teach on all of the Pilates equipment. One of the things I especially love about Pilates is how the exercises are modifiable to accommodate any body type and fitness level. “
