In 2007, Linda completed her Comprehensive Pilates Mat and Equipment Training. Immediately she began to implement the Pilates principles into her therapeutic practice with clients from all walks of life. As a result, she saw clients experience dramatic and long lasting improvements in their physical and mental health and they were able to enjoy life without pain and dysfunction. She has been particularly pleased to see her clients implement Pilates as a life long form of exercise. Her experience with clients of all ages and with those who have been diagnosed with lifelong medical conditions has influenced her commitment to sharing Pilates with individuals through all phases of life.
Linda recognized that many clients wanted a safe environment in which to workout after being discharged from physical therapy. Therefore, she made the decision to leave the medical clinic and pursue a career as a movement specialist with a Pilates Focus. At Pilates Fitness Center, she has combined her therapeutic and fitness experience to provide that post-rehab, non-medical workout.
“I find great fulfillment when a client feels the mind/body connection and it helps them to achieve balance in their everyday life. They report feeling better than ever and find themselves enjoying life to its fullest with abundant energy,” says Linda. “The creation of Pilates Fitness Center is the realization of a goal to provida an environment for clients to not only ‘get a workout’ but learn how to take care of their bodies for a lifetime!”
