Growing up in Hawaii, Janet always focused on physical fitness with a wide range of interests, including yoga, running, hiking, and weight lifting. She first discovered Pilates after moving back to Colorado Springs by taking the occasional Mat class.
Over the years Janet’s interest in Pilates grew, especially after getting on a Reformer—she was hooked! Janet began certification with PEAK Pilates in June 2015 and received the PEAK Pilates Full Comprehensive certification in January 2017.
Because she sees what Pilates can bring to her clients, Janet wants more and more people to include Pilates in their busy schedule, getting their body moving so they can be productive in every aspect of life— balancing the mind, body, and spiritual connection.
