Candy fell in love with Pilates in 2009 when she discovered how much it helped her chronic back pain and improved her posture. Candy has always encouraged others to try Pilates because she knew how much it could help them with their daily movement and alleviate pain.
After a 2 year battle with undiagnosed Lyme disease, she had lost most of her strength and lived with daily chronic pain. Pilates was a huge part of her recovery. Candy loved the Pilates method so much that she decided to become comprehensively trained through Club Pilates in 2018. Candy firmly believes that anyone can benefit from adding Pilates into their fitness routine.
Candy lives in Rockford with her husband and two sons. When she isn't teaching Pilates or doing hair, she enjoys time with her family, gardening, cooking, traveling and learning about holistic health.
