Kellie is a 46 year-old mother of two energetic children (ages 5 and 11), CSUS graduate, & Pilates enthusiast. Upon enduring several orthopedic surgeries she knew she had to change up her fitness routine. After doing Pilates a couple times a week she noticed increased strength without joint pain. Kellie’s passion for Pilates recently led her to BASI. She completed the BASI Pilates teacher training program & is looking forward to helping others gain balance, strength, & flexibility with very little impact to the joints.
