Natalie is a fitness enthusiast and mother of four who found Pilates while training and competing in CrossFit competitions. The power and speed needed to rank nationally in such a demanding sport made her realize the importance of a balanced body and strong core. She soon realized the benefit and edge it gave her over her competition and embarked on the journey to teach Pilates so she can share her passion for finding your body’s potential.
She has completed her intense Pilates Training program which she chose because of its emphasis on rehabilitation and truly understanding the body and how to change someone for lifelong results, not just molding them to a memorized Pilates exercise sequence. She has seen the success stories unfold over and over again with her clients and she can’t wait to create more. All fitness levels will benefit from Pulse Pilates.
