Marissa was born and raised in Florida. She first discovered Pilates through her dance training. She grew up dancing and has since been able to continue dancing professionally in Florida and California. Marissa’s experience with Pilates began with mat work and her first time on a reformer was back in Florida about 5 years ago when she started working for Club Pilates in Tampa, Fl while in college. Marissa went through the mat certification and, since moving to Los Angeles a little over a year ago, she has become fully certified through Club Pilates. Pilates has been a great benefit to her in her dance career and she enjoys being able to add some of her dance training into her Pilates teaching as well. Marissa has loved teaching at Club Pilates, meeting new clients and helping everyone experience how Pilates can benefit them in their own life!
