I have been taking Pilates from Lisa Pellow for nearly a year. I am amazed at how much stronger I am! I used to have back problems when I played golf. Now they are gone! I am also much more flexible. Little things like being able to sit Indian Style on the floor are now easy! I never knew how much increasing my core strength would translate to my overall well-being. I also appreciate how Lisa adapts my workout to my strengths and challenges. She is always encouraging too!
Lisa was trained and certified through Romana’s Pilates® by
Joseph Pilates’ world renowned protégéRomana
Kryzanowska and her daughter, master instructor Sari Mejia
Santo. Over the course of two years, while working in corporate
finance full time, Lisa completed more than 800 hours of training
in New York, Boston, and Paris. Certified in all levels of Pilates
mat work and apparatus Lisa is dedicated to maintaining and
teaching the original system of exercises and philosophies
developed by Joseph H. Pilates; what is today called True Pilates.
Prior to leaving Boston Lisa was on staff with The SportsClub LA
teaching all levels of Pilates in private, semi-private, and group
sessions. Lisa is one of only two currently
Pilates® certified instructors in Pittsburgh.
Involved in athletics her entire life, Lisa was a championship
springboard and platform diver for the Penn State University Lady
Lion diving team. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from
Penn State University and a Master of Business Administration from
the Katz School at the University of Pittsburgh.
It is Lisa’s belief that Pilates can benefit everyone, young and
old, from fitness enthusiast to professional athlete. Therefore,
she maintains a training philosophy of providing a safe,
challenging, and fun experience that fosters a desire for lifetime
fitness, health, balance and vitality.
