As a Florida native, Tammy earned a B.S. in Nutrition from Florida State University. She also studied movement sciences and earned her personal training certification through NSCA while cheering for their nationally ranked cheerleading team. Using her nutrition and personal training experience she headed to South Beach and worked at the Eden Roc Resort and Spa as a personal trainer for 3 years while attending massage therapy school. Working in the health and fitness industry, Tammy was introduced to the Pilates Mat work and began incorporating it into her personal training practice. Shortly after finishing up Massage Therapy School she headed to the Rockies and attended Denver’s first Polestar Pilates Studio training program while cheering for the Denver Nuggets coed cheer team. Tammy quickly fell in love with the playful acrobatic nature of the studio equipment. She has seen how life changing the Pilates Method can be for her clients whether it’s improving one’s posture, pre/post-natal, rehabbing back and knees or cross-training for elite athletes. Feeding her enthusiasm and wanting to learn the classics, she trained under Colleen Glenn (Romana Trained) while working side-by-side with some of the most talented and experienced instructors in the industry for 11 years. As a busy mother of 3, Tammy has experienced firsthand the healing nature of Pilates, pre and post natal work, and how efficient, yet effective the work can be. She is excited to share her experience and enthusiasm for the Pilates Method as well as continue to grow her practice and knowledge with the amazingly talented staff at Pilates Bodies. During a session with Tammy, you’ll quickly find her pleasant, fun-loving teaching style and blend of the Classical and Contemporary work will have you walking taller, while feeling stronger, more balanced and ready to tackle whatever your day puts in front of you!
