Cortney is a full time mom, caregiver and advocate to her beautiful special needs daughter Hannah, who is a vibrant and joyful 17 year old. She understands the importance of taking care of herself and “filling her cup” in order to give herself fully to others. Exercise has helped her to fight depression and stay focused on the important aspects of her life. With the encouragement from her twin sister Karen (also an instructor with Club Pilates!) she ventured into the fitness industry.
She has worked in the industry for over 11 years; personal training and teaching a wide variety of group fitness classes. Through the years she’s discovered the importance of exercise and clean nutrition working hand in hand. You can look healthy on the outside but true health starts on the inside. She fell in love with Pilates when Karen started teaching. She found that it was very rehabilitative to some of her injuries from long distance running and was an overall functional exercise that created flexibility, length and control. That started her journey into teaching Pilates. She has seen so many bodies and minds completely transformed through the the Pilates Method and that has driven her passion to helping others achieve their goals. Cortney is certified through NASM for personal training, Mat Pilates and Barre through Balancepoint Pilates, Reformer Pilates through NAFC and holds many other group exercise certifications including TRX, Les Mills Body Pump, RPM and Keiser Indoor Cycling. Her favorite quote from Joseph Pilates is “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body” She has seen this so many times in her years of training and teaching. She is excited about joining the Club Pilates team, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her!
