Meet Our Newest Team Members

We are very excited to welcome two new members to our Physical Focus Team. Katie and Neela have recently joined our Pilates Team consisting of Amy Osborne, Melody Delshad, Lizzie Smith, Alejandro and Emily Draws. They bring with them years of experience, a multitude of certifications, and a sincere passion for helping others!

Katie is passionate about helping women prevent Osteoporosis, minimize it's impact if already diagnosed, and learn how to exercise safely and effectively for improving bone density. Her Pilates Methods not only help clients look and feel better, but more importantly build bone, core stability, strength, flexibility and mobility.

Neela's energy, passion and flow are an inspiration to all of us. If you've questioned how anyone in their 20's or 30's could possibly understand and relate to how you feel after rounding 50 plus, look no farther. We've found your Pilates Teacher, and she is fired up to share her secrets with you!

To help Neela and Katie get started, we'd like to offer the following discounts, avaiable one time only, and only for those of you not already doing private Pilates training, or looking to add something new to your current fitness and wellness program. Now, through the end of April, you may purchase one of the following:

One Introductory Pilates Session with Neela or Katie for $50

An Introductory Package of 5 Pilates Sessions with Neela or Katie for $300

We are confident that once you meet these two individuals, and give them an opportunity to work with you, you'll be as excited as we are to have them at Physical Focus!
