With every instructor, the search for the perfect studio to teach at often fluctuates depending on the health of the studio and fit for the instructor to the clientele. Over the next couple weeks, I will be starting a couple new classes and moving to a new studio. Here is my current teaching schedule:
I am really excited about the LVExtremeX 30/60/90 class. It runs in three modules, each for 30 days, and gains in intensity. This is going to be a great class series and only offered at The Pilates Studio Las Vegas. Also, be sure to check out the great special offered for this program!
Next, I am starting to work at a great new studio called Elevé Training Studios. My schedule for that location isn’t finalized just yet, but the types of classes I will be teaching include a Trampoline Cardio class, Xtreme Pilates, Traditional Mat Pilates, and Poi.
So, if you’ve taken classes with me in the past and were wondering where you could catch me teaching, there you have it!
I like functional training. I like the type of workouts that either teach me something or challenge me in a new way. For me, I’ve found this to be a great way to not only stay in shape, but to stay interested in staying in shape. Doing the same thing for long periods of time, is not fun. Also, doing the same thing over and over, day after day, doesn’t benefit your body for a number of reasons. We get stuck! Creating variation in a workout program that efficiently targets different aspects of your body’s ability will create a very effective program that will continue to yield results as long as you stay with it.
In my training and teaching, I have seen that Pilates mixed with some High Impact Intensity Training (HIIT) can accomplish the goals of many as well as keep people engaged in working out. Continue Reading →
This weekend, June 23rd, is the 2nd Annual Adela Garcia Classic in Austin, TX. For the past three weeks, I’ve had the GREAT pleasure of working with Vegas Fitness Professional Tiffany Wilkerson as one of her Trainers in preparation for this competition. As much as I’ve enjoyed kicking Tiffany’s ass and working out her choreography, I’ve also enjoyed working with a dedicated, passionate, and HARD WORKING athlete.
Cussing, sweating, panting, laughing at the pain, and feeling the burn has been our routine and this is just the start!! So Kick Ass and Take Names, Tiffany!!

Just some fun I was having at the PlayPoi retreat in Costa Rica in 2010!
Over the past few months, I have been furiously trying to complete my requirements for taking my Pilates certification exam. And finally… I am in the home stretch!
First off, THANK YOU to everybody who allowed me to experiment on them and let me hone my craft as an instructor. Since I have all of your email addresses, I will be contacting you shortly with a personal bit of gratitude.
In addition to being a certified Acrofit Instructor and Trainer, I am developing a new class called Acro-Pilates. For the past three weeks, I’ve taught this class at a relatively young and exciting studio called Pilates+Yoga. So far, the class has enjoyed a very nice reception and is getting some really good buzz around it.
Due to my performance and rehearsal schedules, I am setting up designated hours of availability for my private Pilates sessions. Please contact me at least 24 hours in advance for a session and all sessions are on first come first serve basis.
Pilates Private Sessions:
MWF – 9am-11:30am – mat sessions only
MWF – 4pm-8pm – mat or apparatus sessions.
Tuesday, 7:15pm, I now teach an Acro-Pilates class at Pilates+Yoga in Las Vegas.
One week ago while training on trampoline, I rolled my ankle pretty bad. Aside from the fact that almost every time I injure myself it is on a trampoline and I REALLY want to be good on trampoline, the physical pain hurt a little more than the emotional pain. So, I had to take a few days off of training.
After one week, the pain is still there, not as severe, and the swelling has gone down considerably. I’m not ready to get back to training full on yet because I don’t want to risk re-aggravating it, but I can’t let my body simply atrophy in this time off. A lot of professionals I know ALWAYS have to deal with injuries and how to maintain a level of physical conditioning during the down time. Here are a few tips on how to work through injuries and come out on top!
