Kit's teaching philosophy comes down to one thing: she wants you to feel good! A nationally recognized fitness professional, published writer and speaker, she teaches both classical Pilates and an innovative fusion incorporating circuit training and athletic conditioning. When you train with Kit, her goal is to make you feel healthy, capable and strong.
At her very first Pilates class, during a time when she didn't feel particularly healthy, the studio owner mistook her for a teacher. The surprise of that interaction woke a voice inside her that said, "Maybe I could be," and she went on to earn her certification in all 5 levels of Classical New York Style Pilates. She's also a NASM Personal Trainer and Pilates Plus Trainer with certificates in Sports Conditioning, MMA Fighting and Nutrition.
Kit has written numerous articles, starred in a variety workout videos, and been featured for her work on fitness and body acceptance in print and on The Today Show, E Network, Access Hollywood, Extra and more. She was named one of the top five trainers in Los Angeles by SHAPE magazine, a top female trainer by PopSugar, and made it to the top twenty of Oprah's "Be The Next TV Star". She has also been one of the top five national finalists for Women's Health magazine's "Next Fitness Star".
This gentle, full-body routine moves slowly in order to emphasize when and how to breathe during a variety of Classical Pilates movements. Wonderful for beginners or those who would like to brush up on correct Pilates breathwork, you'll learn how to get the most out of your practice.
This total-body workout gets moving right away with a cardio warmup that transitions into body-weight strength moves like squats and chair pose pulses. After working up a good sweat, move on to plank and side-body work then challenge yourself with an ab series before you stretch it out.
