Paula is the former owner of her own Pilates Studio and has over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry.

As a lifelong dancer Paula has always had a love of movement. That love eventually led her to the fitness world where she pursued her Personal Training Certification. In 2010 she embraced the opportunity to begin her Pilates career. Studying under Peak Master Trainers Zoey Trap and Pamela Garcia, Paula completed over 800 hours of Pilates training obtaining her Level III Peak Pilates Certification. She continues to expand her knowledge of Classical Pilates with continuing education and personal practice.

Paula’s teaching style is both challenging and encouraging. She uses Pilates to empower her clients to enhance their physical and mental health. Paula is mindful to address every client individually and cater their program to their specific needs. One of her favorite parts of teaching is the ability to educate clients how to use their bodies correctly to make them feel better and stronger. Her knowledge of anatomy and movement couples with her patience and dedication to each and every client has made her a successful instructor.
In addition to Peak Pilates Level III, Paula holds many other certifications including WITS Personal Training, AFAA Group Exercise Instructor, Zumba, PIYO, AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) and RIPPED.
