About

What led you to The SweatShop?
It was thanks to dance: when I was not at the studio, I sought something helpful toward my career as a performing artist. After taking many types of fitness classes, I leaped into learning how to lead them. I was thrilled to lead my first class and still feel excited before each class I teach. I love training and teaching in a group fitness setting because it creates energy and builds community.

What do you love about The SweatShop?
The lovely smiling faces.

What is your favorite class to teach?
I enjoy aspects of each class I teach.

About

What led you to The SweatShop?
I took a mat class at the SweatShop with the incomparable Molly Lynn, who studied with Joseph and Clara Pilates in the 1930’s. After living  with chronic pain from a car accident for 18 years, while dancing, I was taken with the precision, the strengthening of core musculature and the depth of the STOTT PILATES® work. My training with MERRITHEW™ in 1999 was the first hosted professional training courses offered by the SweatShop. I became immersed in the STOTT PILATES® method and philosophy of “Intelligent Exercise, Profound Results.”

What do you love about The SweatShop?
I love the community and the passion for health and wellness, the high standard of excellence with all staff, from the charming and capable guest service team to our extraordinary trainers, our interns and babysitters. We have intelligent, compassionate clients.

About

What led you to The SweatShop?
After years of being unhappy with an unhealthy lifestyle, I decided to make changes to my diet and seek a personal trainer in the fitness world. However, I wasn’t having any luck on my journey and was feeling frustrated with my inability to find a fitness lifestyle that I connected with. Thankfully as fate would have it, I was walking past the SweatShop one afternoon when our owner Gayle’s dog jumped up to meet my three-year-old son. We did some talking and I decided to give Pilates a try. The rest is history.

What do you love about The SweatShop?
The community. It’s wonderful how connected the staff is to our clients and the community around us. No one here is just a number. When you join the SweatShop you’re truly gaining a family that is committed to you.

About

My mom was teaching aerobics when she was pregnant with me, so I’ve been in the fitness world since before I was born!

Knowing I wanted to get into physical therapy, getting a Pilates certification made sense. It has been an awesome complement to my rehab knowledge.
