Angie is a STOTT PILATES® certified instructor of more than 5 years with the education and life experience to help others move beyond their struggles on the way to achieving a healthy lifestyle. Her knowledge and passion to continue to learn and grow has expanded over those 5 years to include Injuries & Special Populations, TRX, Total Barre, and Zenga.
Angie is very familiar with the struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle. After a weight gain that put her well over 260 pounds, it took dropping out of a hiking class to realize that something needed to change. It had been a long journey of trying different exercises, personal trainers, and gym equipment when she finally came to Corestar Pilates. After signing up for a Beginning Pilates class, she was hooked. Pilates has helped Angie become stronger in her own body and she enjoys helping others achieve their own goals through Pilates.
Paige's Pilates journey began in 2006 as a recommendation from a friend. As an avid skier, both in the mountains and on the lake, Paige immediately noticed how much easier, almost effortless these activities became. Running also felt better and became more enjoyable after incorporating the Pilates principles.
Paige has been a Certified STOTT PILATES Instructor Since 2014 and is a STOTT qualified instructor in Zen*ga and CORE Athletic Conditioning and Performance Training. She later added a certification for TRX Suspension Training. She specializes in private and semi-private Pilates instruction as well as group reformer classes. Paige believes in finding balance and harmony in our bodies and life. She feels it is important to build strength and flexibility together to help create that balance and Pilates should always enhance your favorite activities and exercise methods.
