Sarah Chaves is passionate about health, wellness, and fitness. She is a strong believer that being active is not only good for the body, but also the mind. She started her fitness journey at the age of 4 with ballet, pointe, tap, and jazz. In fact, she continued taking dance classes throughout high school and college and also incorporated fitness classes and gym training. Once college ended she had a hard time finding a dance studio, so her fitness regime mainly consisted of training at gyms, taking group classes, outdoor running, walking, and hiking. After taking several years off from dance, she wanted to find something similar that she could do as an adult. She eventually found that Pilates Reformer was the perfect fit and became instantly hooked. She started off taking 2 classes a week, then 6 or 7, and ultimately enrolling in Club Pilates' 500hr training program to become a certified Pilates Mat and Reformer instructor. She is passionate about Pilates because it combines strength training, flexibility, mind body awareness, postural alignment, ballet movements, and even cardio with the jump boards.

From an early age, she competed in softball and swimming, and loved horseback riding, surfing, and skiing.

After taking an intro reformer class at Club Pilates, San Diego in 2016, Holly became hooked on a practice that both satisfied her fitness goals and promoted a healthy mind and spirit.
