When Abby attended her first Pilates class after graduating college and moving to Indianapolis it was love at first sight! A perfect change of pace from her usual gym and running routine, after a few classes she was hooked. She loved how she felt after each and every class, and the noticeable changes in muscle definition and tone were not bad either! While gearing up for her wedding and starting a new job, a co-worker introduced her to Invoke Studio, and Abby’s heart was stolen once more by their Bar Effect™ classes. Pushing her body at each class felt great, but the evident increase in strength and endurance left her wanting more. Wishing to inspire this enthusiasm of Pilates and Bar Effect™ into others, Abby jumped at the idea of becoming a teacher! Learning more with each class and through personal practice, she loves up-beat, high energy classes that will really push your body and make you feel the burn! Abby recently trained with Balanced Body and is also a Registered Dietitian. She truly believes in the phrase “everything in moderation…except for planks, which you can never do enough!”
