“When a door closes, another one opens” proved true for Melissa when a long-term job as a health insurance underwriter ended unexpectedly. Pilates was recommended to her husband to treat his sore low back, and he signed up Melissa to go with him and help fill her free time. Having tried many other types of exercise before, Melissa was quickly hooked on Pilates’ positive atmosphere and gentle, yet effective all-over body and mind benefits. A total career change was in order as Melissa decided to pursue a life-long passion in fitness, wellness, and helping people. She’s excited to be working as a Pilates Instructor after completing her Teacher Training through Club Pilates in early 2017!
