Pilates Instructor - Institute of Integrative Nutrition Coach
Betsy began her fitness training at the tender age of four with dance and competitive swimming. Being the daughter of an ex-NFL quarterback and University of Alabama cheerleader, exercise was a regular part of life in her household. During the school year there was ballet, jazz, and modern dance up to 4 days a week, while in the sweltering heat of the summer on the Alabama Gulf Coast days were spent training in the pool. After 11 years, at the age of 15, dance won out. She went on to the University of Alabama where she was awarded a scholarship for dance. She studied at Hunter College in New York City where she completed her BA in Theater & Dance. While working for Crunch Fitness of NYC, she was exposed to a variety of fitness approaches, including Yoga, Weight training, and Boxing. She decided that teaching fitness and empowering people through movement was the right fit. In 2001, she moved to Atlanta and started her own personal training and corporate fitness business. After building a successful referral system, she was introduced to the Pilates world through Studio Lotus. After one session, she knew this was the missing link in her own body and decided she wanted to be able to teach Pilates, not just do Pilates. With six hundred hours of apprenticeship and numerous test-outs, Power Pilates presented her with a certificate of completion. Since 2005, she has worked with hundreds of clients ranging from pre-natal to post-rehab to triathletes. She has continued her studies with certifications in Redcord, Barre, Kettlebells, Anatomy, Stretch Therapy, and Nutrition Coaching. Betsy always strives to teach her clients to approach health and fitness with intelligence, thoughtfulness, and consistency. As a graduate of The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, she can include a full nutrition program with her fitness instruction. She loves guiding people to become their best through quality of movement and quality of nutrition. The two make a fierce combination with results that will last.
Betsy teaches Pilates Mat Class, Barre Class, and hosts our 21-Day Cleanse Challenges. She is currently accepting private clients.
