About this pro

My background and previous training in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology affords me a special insight into one's body. Basically I know what hurts and why. More importantly, I know how to fix it! 

I love helping people feel and look better. Regaining some part of their lives that they thought they lost. My only rule is that you leave me feeling better than when you walked in!

  • Jeff

    Kim is an excellent Pilates instructor. Even more she tailors the workout to her clients. She helped me with back issues, shoulder surgery rehab and hip issues. Highly Recommend.

  • Nancy Boggs

    I have been taking PILATES with Kim for over 6 years, most as private sessions. As a former dancer I was looking for a teacher who had extensive training in not only the PILATES method but also knowledge in kinesiology and movement. Having taken classes in studios on both coasts and in between, I have found Kim to be an outstanding instructor whose background and experiences enable her to focus on shaping sessions that meet her clients’ individual needs.

  • Jeff Kaiser

    Kim always takes the time to ask how you are feeling and if anything is bothering you. She tailors the workout to what your body needs. I always leave feeling better than when I arrived. He workouts have improved my strength and flexibility as well as lose weight.

  • C Carson

    Kim gives each client a customized workout. The workouts are varied and get progressively more difficult as you get stronger and more proficient. She always challenges me to achieve my best results!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I use a medical history form for first timers. I believe it is critical in helping people not only feel better but, also we do not want to re-injure or create a new dificulty or issue. 

I then will take the first time student through a 50 minute private session using the pilates reformer and other pieces of equipment I think would be benificial for the client. Whether it be the trap table, chair or weights.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with, professioanal athletes, novices and week end warriors the like. Detroit Lions, cyclists, prof. dancers, any one who has the want and desire to be stronger, more fluid and flexible while remaining lean. 


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

Make sure that instructors have the proper training and enough of it. Pilates instructor training consists of 500 hrs.for a certificate of completion. 

Less for a personal trainer but, you do want someone with knowledge of the human body and how it works and why. Without a background in anatomy, I just do not see how they can keep you safe or fix an ailment nor can they make you feel better which is a ket element for me. 


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

What do I want to achieve? Goals

What at present is ailing me. Be specific here. 

Any surgeries or injuries? 

What about my diet or present workout routine if any.
