Inferno Hot Pilates Teacher & Torched Barre Instructor
I grew up on Long Island, and have always been involved in sports. In addition to playing sports I also worked out on my own at a local gym. After moving down to Columbia, South Carolina in the Fall of 2011 for graduate school, I searched for a new fitness routine that would continue to challenge me, as I was becoming bored with the same old gym routine.
In 2013 I found Carolina Crossfit, this is where I really fell in love with fitness. I was looking for another class to add, and that’s when a close friend convinced me to give Bikram Columbia a try. After my first Bikram class I was hooked. I couldn’t believe how much Bikram Yoga was helping my Crossfit training and vice versa. The two are a great complement for each other. I have always been open to trying new fitness classes, so when Inferno Hot Pilates came to Bikram Columbia, I had to give it a try. The high intensity and quick pace of the class along with the heat combined two of the things I love from Crossfit and Bikram. It seemed to fit perfectly into my fitness routine. In June 2016 I had the opportunity to take the Inferno Hot Pilates Teacher Training. Everyday getting to come in and share my passion with students who want to better themselves was something amazing. I knew this was what I wanted to do! Early in 2017, a new class was coming together at Bikram Columbia – Torched Barre. I got the opportunity to take one of these classes, and instantly knew that I wanted to add this in. I had never taken any type of Barre class before, and I couldn’t believe how sore I was the following day. It challenged me in a way that was so different from anything else. After taking a few more classes, I started training to teach Torched Barre.
Falling in love with teaching Inferno Hot Pilates and then Torched Barre, I began my journey to become a coach at Orangetheory Fitness. Being able to mesh everything I have learned from the different trainings has made me a better teacher and coach. I am so grateful that I can share my passion for fitness every day and help people improve their lives physically and mentally. It puts such a big smile on my face when I see my students improve, knowing I was a part of their journey. See you all in the hot room!
