Qualifications: A Pilates Method Alliance member. Certified in group fitness by the America Council on Exercise. BA in Communication with a Dance minor. Performed as a principal dancer for Walt Disney World Company.
Personal History: My mother says I was born dancing. She enrolled me into my first ballet class at barely three years old and I never stopped dancing! I discovered Pilates, like many dancers, as a form of injury prevention and fitness. After graduating from college, I decided to leave the corporate world behind and became a full-time Pilates instructor. My love for movement keeps me motivated and my passion to help others meet their fitness goals makes me very grateful for my career.
Workout Philosophy: It's about how you move, not just how much. The mind and body must be connected and active to truly achieve remarkable results.
Success Story: From Edie Kennedy in Boca Raton, FL: "What have you done with my cellulite?? Never mind, I don’t want it back. Just above my knees, on the inside of the legs, I used to have awful cellulite. I haven’t worn a bathing suit or shorts in two years. A few days ago, getting out of my bath, I looked in the mirror and could not find the cellulite I once had. So…I visited two other mirrors in my house - very little cellulite. So... I went shopping and checked out the dressing room mirrors in Bloomingdales. Okay, maybe I’ll find the cellulite in Saks’ mirrors. Well, I’ve searched everywhere and boy has it diminished. I gave up on my legs after a Plastic Surgeon told me nothing could be done. Well, I guess he doesn’t know about you. I can’t wait to see what 20 more classes will do for the rest of me. Andrea, thank you for your professionalism, motivation, caring about all of us, and looking so darn good it inspires me to keep going."
