Chrissy is a Romana’s Pilates Trained instructor. She has been practicing Pilates for over 15 years. She transitioned from taking mat classes in the gym to being a fully trained teacher on all apparatus over that time.
Chrissy fell in love with Pilates, as so many people do, when she took a class in the gym. She was amazed at how it made her feel after only a few classes. On her vacation in Rome Italy, she even took time from her sight seeing to take a class from Sabina Formichella in the Italian Romana’s Pilates studio. She wanted to see how Pilates felt in Italy! It was amazing. She became a dedicated student of Pilates for many years and finally decided to follow her heart and her dream to become a teacher.
While managing a two year old son and two jobs, she traveled back and forth (and continues to do so) into New York City to get her training from the absolute premier training institute (and the only true direct line Pilates teacher training program), Romana’s Pilates. Chrissy wanted to be the best teacher she could so that she could bring her clients into health and fitness safely and effectively and the way that Joseph Pilates did. She is so proud of her training and she continues to deepen her pilates understanding every week at True Pilates NY.
Chrissy’s goal is to teach classical Pilates to help all her clients feel great. She believes that no matter what your age or body type, Pilates can make it possible to reach your fitness goals.
