“My goal for Pilates Plus Fitness is to provide a fun, safe and non-judgmental environment for women in the community to exercise and have fun. It is well known that giving your body new challenges keeps it changing and stops you from hitting that "plateau" that we are all too familiar with. I’ve been helping people break through physical and psychological barriers to achieve life-changing levels of self esteem, strength, energy, flexibility and ‘balanced’ fitness for over twenty six years!“
