STOTT Certified Pilates Instructor
Yoga Certified (200 hr)
Wendy started her career as a Physical Education teacher and a gymnastics coach. Her fitness journey began with the YMCA teaching choreographed aerobics and evolved to include a variety formats: strength training, step aerobics, Pre- & Postnatal exercise, senior fitness and Yoga. For the past 15 years she has traveled as an International Fit-bodies Instructor. In the last 12 years, her focus has been teaching equipment-based Pilates. She is certified through STOTT Pilates on all pieces of equipment with levels: Essential, Intermediate and Advanced and Injuries and Special Populations. Wendy is also a registered 200 hour Yoga Teacher.
In 2010-2013 Wendy had pleasure of working at a gym-based Pilates studio directed by Briana, founder of ROI. Wendy found she appreciates Briana’s quality of teaching and commitment to a client-focused environment, and she is excited to join the staff of ROI.
Before moving back to Chicago in 2018, she had her own studio in her home. She enjoys biking, paddle boarding, cross country skiing and spending time with her family.
Sessions with Wendy reflect her experience in the fitness world. Her sessions would be considered more ‘fitness-focused” and may move with a bit more ‘zest’ than the more ‘therapeutic-based’ sessions at ROI.
