Neda’s passion for health and fitness started at a young age and led her to dedicate her college career towards educating herself to help others.

After college she served others as an Athletic Director for a private health club in Vinings, Georgia where she was also a personal trainer and a group fitness instructor. Neda’s Pilates practice began in 2016 when she quickly realized Pilates was a fantastic way to rehab her hip and foot injuries while getting an incredible full body work out. She also felt compelled to help others with their Pilates practice just as other instructors had helped her! When Neda isn’t at the studio, she can be found fostering animals, enjoying the pool, and whenever possible, the beach.

After 20 productive years in Information Technology, Stephanie Little was inspired to join the Club Pilates Revolution to help bring Pilates to the masses. Following an active childhood in both sports and dance, Stephanie has continued to enjoy dance, Yoga, Barre, and Pilates. She also fancies an occasional 5K. How has Pilates improved your daily life? When we first met, my legal boyfriend and I bonded by working out. Overtime our active time together waned. Pilates allows us to spend active time together while still challenging ourselves individually. We have fun AND we feel better. What is your love to hate exercise? Draw a sword but truly almost any arm work. Although my arms are somewhat toned, building upper body strength continues to be a personal challenge. What was your last adventure? Does opening a Pilates studio count? Our last memorable excursion was an end of year trip to visit friends in Germany and surrounding areas. We welcomed the new year in a family owned castle in the Normandy region of France. It was unforgettable. What are some small things that make your day better? Coffee, guacamole, humor, friends, inspiring others... oh, and Pilates of course!
DJ Little is a Master Sergeant serving in the USAF at Dobbins ARB in Marietta Georgia as an aircraft mechanic. He joined the USAF in 1989 after his mom threatened to kick him out of the house after he graduated high school! Since leaving Massachusetts, he has traveled the world with Uncle Sam. DJ continues to deploy all over the world when needed on his favorite aircraft, the C-130 Hercules.
He also happens to be married to Stephanie, the owner of Club Pilates East Cobb. Together, they enjoy helping people with their wellness goals. When DJ and Steph first started dating, fitness was a big part of their life. However, life soon got in the way. Club Pilates was a perfect way for them to re-connect and also help other people. DJ is also an auto mechanic. He spends way too much time, fixing, buying, and selling old cars and trucks. Mainly, he spends too much money! So, hopefully his Pilates teaching can bring him some extra cash for the next toy. Pilates was certainly not on the radar screen for DJ, but it has proven to be a nice glitch in the Matrix. Pilates has improved his posture, helped his military run times, and eliminated all back pain due to his sometimes-strenuous job. It’s too bad it can’t help him with his love of Scotch Whisky and Pizza! DJ has a different personality that some people will enjoy while others just might not get him! Either way, his personality comes out during class and it provides for a different type of learning environment. If you don’t follow his cues, you might even get a taste of his military side!

The focus on mind body awareness, strengthening from the core, and performing exercises with excellent technique have helped her realize terrific results from regular Pilates workouts. As an instructor, she strives to provide the same health benefits and supportive community to her clients that she herself has experienced.

Krista found fitness in her forties, first by regaining control over food and then by adding exercise. Finding the right exercise routine was a journey. After going through several different fitness facilities she observed one thing that stood out: people were getting injured from either incorrect form or “over doing it”. So when Krista walked into Club Pilates and took her first Intro class she knew she had found the right fit! She appreciates the small member to instructor ratio, the use of hands on corrections, and a complete focus on muscle and mind engagement. ~ For the past 5 years Krista has been working with clients on their nutrition so becoming a Pilates Instructor was the perfect fit to continue helping people find health and wellness through mobility! ~ When Krista isn’t in the studio; teaching, taking a class, or practicing, she can be found shuttling her two teenagers around town, caring for two German Short-haired Pointers, or trying to grab some one-on-one time with her husband Eric. She also loves conspiracy theory suspense books.
