Above is the Merriam-Webster Definition of Pilates, however I find Pilates hard to define as it is so much more than that. Watch the video to learn more!
Stephanie Oldre, NCPT
NCPT stands for Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher, previously known as PMA Certified.
I am a fitness enthusiast but my main passion is Pilates. Pilates is such a fantastic approach to functional fitness and can mean so many different things for different people. Working one-on-one with clients allows me to tailor their Pilates experience to exactly what their body needs. It is my joy to help others feel comfortable in their own bodies.
My career as a fitness professional started in 2017. I fell in love with Pilates back in 2012 and eventually decided to make a career doing what I loved. Soon after my Pilates Instructor Training, I decided to further my education. As a result I am also certified as a Group Fitness Instructor and a WaterArt Instructor, which allows me to teach a variety of different classes.
When I am not teaching classes or working with private clients, I am enjoying time spent with my husband and 2 young boys.
"Just have to take a second to rave about Stephanie Oldre and Pinnacle Pilates!
If you want a great workout to do at home. This has been a lifesaver for me. Stephanie has a variety of classes that she offers live over Zoom. Pilates is her main class, then some cardio and stretching classes as well.
I was a newbie when I started Pilates a couple months ago, I had never done Pilates. But she does a great job explaining and it is very gentle easy movements that make huge improvements in your posture, muscle tone and overall strength and well-being."
