Kim Reis

Kim began her training at the age of six with her first gymnastics

class and has been studying movement ever since. She earned her

Pilates certification in 1999 from Master Instructor Romana

Kryzanowska. Also certified through Power Pilates, she studied

extensively with Bob Liekens and has assisted Jennifer Kries with

teacher-training seminars. Kim is featured in Jennifer’s Master

Trainer DVD series as well as her Hot Body/Cool Mind series.

One of the first to bring Pilates to the mainstream, students filled

her classes at Equinox Health Club, New York University, and the

Time/Life Company, among others. She has studied Anatomy,

Kinesiology, and Biomechanics with Irene Dowd and Jean-Claude

West.

Kim danced professionally in NYC and was a member of The

Mark Morris Dance Group. After moving to San Francisco, she

studied flying trapeze and performed with the aerial dance

company, Flyaway Productions. While there, she also taught

Pilates to members of the San Francisco Ballet.

Now in Portland, OR, she has trained athletes for the Portland

Trailblazers. As a mom of two boys, she likes to take any

opportunity she can to practice her Pilates, study yoga, or go for a

run in all her “spare” time. Kim’s philosophy is to empower her

students to create change, and to always believe in the possibility

of a positive outcome.
