OWNER + CERTIFIED PILATES INSTRUCTOR
Physical fitness was never an integral part of my life and I figured it likely never would be until I found Pilates.
After having my son, Parker I quickly realized the 70 pounds I had gained during pregnancy wasn't "all baby" like I had hoped! I knew I needed to do something to get back in shape and feeling like my old self, but I just couldn't wrap my head around adding an exercise program to the already hectic schedule of having a newborn. I stumbled across Pilates accidentally while watching TV in the middle of the night and ordered the set of DVDs without much expectation they would really work. Within a few sessions, I couldn't believe the benefits I felt and saw from Pilates.
I figured adding the personal connection of taking Pilates at a studio with an instructor could only add to the experience, so I began private and class instruction. Pilates has been life changing and I truly believe it's something everyone should incorporate into their lives on a regular basis, regardless of age. Not only did I lose the baby weight in 4 short months, but I felt more mentally clear and in control than ever before. That was almost 19 years ago, and I still feel the same today.
When I first opened Sculpt, I made the difficult decision to put teaching on the back burner. Now, I am back to my roots of teaching and love connecting with my clients. I appreciate the support and loyalty from every single client and will always focus on improving their studio experience.
