About me



My name is Melinda and I help people get strong, mobile, and pain-free through Pilates, functional training, and a variety of other movement tools. 


I believe that moving well (and often) is a key component to a healthy, happy life and that everyone has the ability to have a strong, pain-free, smart body. 


Whether you are recovering from an injury, managing chronic pain, or ready to break through a fitness plateau, we can work together to develop a plan to reach your goals. 


I am especially skilled at working with chronic back pain, gait, and foot conditions. I am also a certified Pre and Post-Natal Pilates specialist with training in Diastasis Recti recovery.

Because I love to learn as much as I love to teach, my movement education is both deep and diverse. Check out the list to the right for my current certifications.
