About this pro

I am still passionate about my work after 35 year in the industry and with a Pilates and somatic background I address over all function in order to challenge at an appropriate level for a safe, effective and results driven program. Functional fitness is about moving well, being strong, flexible, coordinated and having a toned and balanced body.

Individuals want to work on flexibility or balance, others strength and/or hypertrophy and still others desire specific work on their glutes, thighs or chest, the the core is always addressed, but don't worry I won't have you doing endless crunches to loud music. TRX (suspension training), free weights, cables machines, Pilates and HIIT training are utilized in workouts. I am skilled with back and joint issues anda ddress posture from the feet up. Runners and athletes benefit from the specific Foot Focused conditioning I provide. As a Purium Health Coach I can help with weight loss, detox and healthy lifestyle changes. I stand out because of my versatility, experience, humor and maturity. I've worked thousands of individuals. I'd like to work with you!

The relationships I build and how my clients change their mindsets and their boies working with me.   Education is key.

    Working with Colleen Glenn-Wilson is changing my relationship with my body in terms of structural alignment, strength, and the capacity to heal from a serious car accident. She is a delight; extremely knowledgeable about body dynamics, and a pleasure with whom to work. In addition, her focus is acute, and she does not get distracted from the purpose of each session (even if I try to engage her in conversation to make it easier on me....ha). I highly recommend Colleen, your body will thank you!

    I have been working with Colleen as my trainer for a few years now and couldn't be happier. She is so tuned in to when I need to go easy and when I need to push. Colleen is fun and relational and clearly knowledgeable about what keeps a body strong and resilient!

  • Barb Edwards

    You walk across the room and she can describe what is going on with your body. Using her long experience with pilates and functional medicine, she can read the body like a book and knows just what to do to bring about more ease, flexibility and strength

A health history evaluation is done for information about work habits, hobbies, current physical limitations and past injuries or surgeries, specific goals and what you are good at and like to do exercise wise. Based on the information we do an initial workout/evaluation session, I access you and then we come up with a course of action or program to get the results you are striving for.

How did you get started teaching?

Moving and teaching has been innate since I was young,  I started at a professional dance academy when I was 8 years old became a professional later in life, I taught ballet in my basement starting at the age of 15 to neighborhood children. 

Teaching Pilates and functional exercise was a natural transition from my career.  Through my years of dancing,  strength training and somatic methods were a part of my performance and preventative regimes for longevity. 

Simply put - it's in my blood to instruct and educate others on how to move/exercise optimally, to be healthy and fit and to look good! 


What types of students have you worked with?

All types of students and ages from teenagers with scoliosis, to professional athletes and mom and dads wanting to stay in shape, my oldest client was 92! 

 In recent years I have been working with the more mature adult or individual who wants to stay fit for the long haul and is not as interested in "fad fitness" but wants to learn how to be in shape and stay as healthy and fit as they can.   


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I've been working with niche fitness centers to incorporate organic, non-GMO food programs for detox and weight loss that is life style focused to their facilities incorporating exercise programing with it.   


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look at providers' education and experience and see if it relates and, you should feel comfortable with the person and meet with them before signing on to anything. It is suggested to start with a few sessions initially and then evaluate if the trainer is a match, don't feel obligated.  Be clear on your objectives and explain them.  Ask a lot of questions.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

They should consider their SMART goals:

S-Specific. What is that they want? If they are not clear they can ask the trainer to talk through it with them to get clarity.

M-Measurable-How is the goal measured?  How will you know if you are successful? Is it just getting to a session and working out twice a week, is that success for you? Define your success. 

A-Attainable-Is your goal attainable in a specific time frame. If getting to 3 training sessions a week is your goal, can you carve out the time for that? Do you have a flexibility goal?  If yant to lose weight, how much in what time frame?  What are you willing to do, time, money and habit wise? 

R-Relevant-is the goal worth achieving? Is it Realistic? Can you lose 30 pounds in two weeks? Can you work out 4 times a week with your schedule?   Can you touch your toes in month?  

 T-Time-Is the goal focused around a measure of time and space?
