Laressa was first introduced to Pilates in 2007 as a Dance Major at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. Pilates not only helped with her cross-training, but it also helped in the rehabilitation of a back injury as well. In 2011, she pursued becoming an Instructor, and by 2012 was Fully Certified through STOTT Pilates.
In 2016, she was hired as a full-time instructor with Club Pilates. Within a year, she was promoted to Lead Instructor for the Oakland County locations (5) in Michigan. While in this role, she discovered that she loved the mentoring aspect that is required. So, in 2020, during the Pandemic, she started to pursue becoming a Master Trainer for Club Pilates.
Since officially becoming a Master Trainer in 2021, she has led 3-4 Teacher Training per year, with very positive graduate outcomes. She also is a National Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT), is a Corporate Master Trainer for Club Pilates, and holds a seat on the Club Pilates Education Committee.
