Certified Pilates Instructor
The start of my fitness career began in 1982, as an AFAA certified aerobic instructor. I began teaching classes any and all styles of fitness a club had to offer. The weight room quickly became part of my workout regime and I received my training certification from AFAA which led me into starting my own business "Better Body by Carla" in 1985..I soon realized my clients not only needed cardio but resistance training and proper nutrition were a must. Another opportunity arose. My passion moved into owning and operating my very own "gym"...The Club. There I continued to help others find their love for fitness. In 1993, yoga started to boom in clubs everywhere. I was soon addicted to the practice and taught classes which enhanced my level of fitness. In 2007, the pilates' director at the club where I was teaching classes asked if I would like to check out his pilates studio..It did not take long for me to be trained in the practice of small group classes. I loved it!!!!
Pilates gave me everything I was looking for especially after decades of teaching, training for marathons, riding centuries and completing a 1/2 Ironman. With a family of 4 children, over 36 years in fitness....Pilates has kept me going strong! I strive to pass that along to my clients.
My motto: Balance, consistency, commitment...anyone can find the passion within to feel and become the best they can be!!!
