WENDY ZIMMERMAN

Owner

My passion for health and wellness began early caring for patients and working along side surgeons. I wanted to help patients before, during, and after medical care to improve their daily living activities (ADL) through functional, intelligent exercise. My training within the Pilates Method, coupled with my medical background, enables me to understand, empathize, and design the optimal program for each client. The Pilates method is truly a genius, continuously evolving repertoire, that allows me to teach to my clients that best suits their needs. I am passionate about educating fellow fitness professionals to continue their growth and advancement in the Pilates field.
