In 1980, Bonnie’s family founded Stayin’ Alive Fitness Centers, which was the only full-service, large-scale fitness facility of its kind in the North Palm Beach area. She wore many hats since that time – but her true passion has always been that of a Fitness Instructor and Group Fitness Director.
In the 32 years with Stayin’ Alive Fitness Centers, she became certified in a wide variety of group fitness formats, personal training as well as Pilates mat and apparatus. When she discovered The Pilates Method of exercise in 1999, she fell in love with the deeper knowledge of bio-mechanics, stabilization, alignment and connection of breathe-to-movement during exercise. Attention to detail, moving with precision and fluidity are definitely Bonnie’s strengths.
When she teaches, the therapeutic method of exercise and foundations from Hatha yoga, ballet and modern dance shine through in her instruction and teaching style. In 2014, she completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and has applied that deeper fundamental knowledge of how to best harmonize the mind, body, and spirit in to her Pilates practice.
Bonnie says her greatest reward is when a client shares with her how much their quality of life has improved since discovering Pilates and Yoga.
