 It wasn’t until her early 20’s that Brieanna discovered health and fitness as a way to combat the stress and anxiety of college.  Brieanna did everything from running and weight training to salsa and swing dancing.  However, once she tried Pilates, she found that nothing compared to this workout.  She became addicted immediately!  She is currently completing a nursing program that complements her lifestyle of health promotion and longevity.  According to Brieanna, “health is not just physical, but emotional and mental as well; Pilates Plus encompasses all of these areas”.  Her goal is to inspire you in each and every class, while leaving your body trembling through the workouts!

Fitness has always been an important part of Mahtab’s lifestyle.  After years of being a competitive gymnast, the training took a toll on her body and she was forced to stop competing.  To stay in shape, she tried a variety of workouts and fell in love with Pilates.  She found that it could change her body unlike anything she could do at the gym or in other fitness classes.  She gained a new type of strength and loved the results she saw in the mirror.  Her goal for every class is to have you taking full advantage of every minute of the intense workout so that you can leave feeling accomplished.
