Michele attended her first Pilates class in 2006 with the simple dream of being pain free. With consistency and patience, Pilates eradicated her crippling back pain, gave her newfound strength, and allowed her to move freely. Pilates has also helped her develop a deep awareness that informs the way she moves. Pilates continues to serve as the foundation for everything she does, from caring for her active daughter to training for her triathlons. As it brings her steadiness, strength, and focus, in mind and body. Because of all it has done for her, Michele loves sharing this transformative practice with others, and helping them find the freedom she has discovered. She brings her treasure trove of experience and a sense of excitement to each class, always eager to help her clients achieve their highest potential. Michele completed her comprehensive Pilates training at Core Pilates NYC in 2016. She is also a NASM Personal Trainer, with additional certifications in yoga, trx, pre/postnatal, running, group fitness and nutrition.
