Theresa Wilson has been physically active all of her life and realized that one way to share her love of fitness was to become a personal trainer. Once embedded in the fitness industry as a trainer, she developed an enthusiasm for teaching. Yoga, Studio Cycling, Pilates, and TRX are all areas that Theresa discovered a passion for, devoted resources towards formal training and certifications, and had great mentors.
In particular, the ingenuity behind the beautiful hardwood frames of Pilates equipment, the variety of springs and attachments, and the seemingly endless ways to stretch and strengthen the body were irresistible – and totally fun!! Being able to draw upon a lifetime of exercise experience and establishing a studio environment allows her to help clients increase their strength and mobility to enjoy an active life!
Developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), the Pilates method is a mind-body conditioning program initially designed for rehabilitation purposes during the early twentieth century. Pilates was later adopted by dancers as its philosophy was consistent with their focus on core strength and developing long lean muscles.
Pilates is based on a set of principles (concentration, control, center, precision, breath, flow) which exercise the whole body through a range of movements that combines the coordination of deep postural and stability muscles, breathing and arm & leg movements with postural correction, suppleness and flexibility. With regular practice, Pilates positively changes the body and inspires students of all ages and fitness levels.
