Architecture to Fitness to Movement

I wanted to be an architect from the time I can remember. After lots of school and lots of office and computer time, I took a ninety-degree turn into personal training and fitness and somehow magically stumbled into Pilates. And I instantly fell in love.

I've now been teaching privately full time since January 2002.

And this path is cleaner than you might think: I believe that bodies are like buildings. A building can have a beautiful facade, but if the foundation and the structure are lacking, eventually the building will become dysfunctional. And bodies are the same. But if you're willing to go inside and take care of your foundation, the beautiful facade will follow.

And more importantly, by focusing inward in your movement routine you'll remain flexible, strong and stable long into the future. I think that being able to pick one's grandchildren up off the floor will always win out over having a defined six-pack.

Don't you agree?
