Mary started Pilates as a way to break up her fitness routine and intense nights at the library during college. After graduating from IUPUI, she suffered a leg injury during a soccer game that challenged her mobility for almost 9 months. Once recovered, Mary came back to Pilates as a way to regain her strength, balance, and flexibility. Falling in love with Pilates all over again and finding a new love for barre, Mary went on to get her Bar Effect Certification in 2015 and Peak Pilates Basic Mat Certification in 2016. Mary is excited to continue her journey with Pilates equipment in 2017.
