Q. How long have you been practicing Pilates?
A. I started doing Pilates about 5 months ago.
Q. What is your favorite exercise?
A. One of my favorites is the hips rolls with the press outs.
Q. What is your favorite piece of equipment?
A. The reformer for sure, but I love when we incorporate smaller pieces like the ring to make our workouts more challenging. I’m also a huge fan the Cardio Blast class where we utilize the trampoline or jump board.
Q. What other forms of exercise do you regularly participate in?
A. I like to run or walk and in the summer I play sand volleyball.
Q. Tell us about your family.
A. I have been married to my husband, Colby, for 5 years. We have a 3 year old daughter, Ruby and two Labrador retrievers, Chuck and Murphy. We love to spend time outdoors whether it be doing yard work, playing with the dogs, going to the lake, or playing sand volleyball with friends.
Q. What is your favorite food?
A. I love pasta, but I eat anything my husband makes. He’s a great cook!
Q. How do you find time for Pilates?
A. I find time because I truly have made it a priority. I typically work over my lunch hour so that gives me the flexibility to find a class time to attend.
Q. What do you think is the biggest benefit of doing Pilates?
A. I have experienced so may benefits that it’s hard to name just one. When I started Pilates, I was both physically and mentally unhealthy. I was really looking for a way to strengthen my core and just focus on me. In the last 5 months I have reduced my stress and anxiety levels, I have toned my body from head to toe, and an added bonus is I have lost weight! It is the best mind-body workout I’ve ever done.
