Brianna found Pilates during her time studying Athletic Training at Oregon State University. It was first integrated in her career as a means to help rehabilitate the athletes she worked with, but she soon discovered the many benefits Pilates provides for all individuals, and wanted to pursue teaching so that she could better promote Pilates to the rest of the community. Combining what she has learned from her degree in Exercise and Sports Science, and her experience as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, Brianna has come to refer to Pilates as "Cross Training for life.". Brianna's focus when teaching is to identify a person's needs, not only to help reach their fitness goals, but to improve movements in activities of daily living. When she isn't teaching you can find her snowboarding, rock climbing, eating, and snuggling her dogs and cat.
