Anita English, Pilates Instructor

Anita grew up in Pennsylvania and received her undergraduate degree in History and a partial masters in Urban Anthropology. In 2002, she moved to the Netherlands to marry her Dutch husband. Anita lived and worked in Holland until November of 2006, when her husband was transferred to the Chicago area.
Upon arriving to the Chicago area, Anita entered the Power Pilates certification program to become a Pilates instructor and has never looked back. Having practiced Pilates for many years prior to entering the program, Anita knew Pilates was both empowering and effective method of exercise, however since completing the certification program she credits Pilates with changing her outlook and approach to life. What a great job we have as instructors to help people to achieve a balance in their lives through exercise.
Anita loves working with all types of people and marvel that Pilates is so flexible a system to cater to anyone. All that she asks from clients is that they come to their sessions with a goal and not be afraid to work for it.
