Nettie found Pilates in early 2011 when she was dealing with persistent pain in her lower back due to bulging disks in her lumbar spine. It didn’t take long to see improvement and she has been hooked on Pilates ever since. Nettie’s road to fitness was not an easy one. She developed scoliosis as a teenager and for years was going through physical therapy three times a week to improve curvature of her spine. Looking back, those PT sessions were very much like Pilates Mat classes.
An avid runner, Nettie has completed numerous marathons, ultra-marathons, and shorter distance races. She always says that Pilates keeps her running. Literally! The core and leg strength developed through regular sessions on the reformer has enabled her to maintain high volume training miles. She loves how gentle, yet effective, Pilates practice is. Nettie is a self-proclaimed health-nut who believes that exercise can positively affect not only our bodies, but transform all aspects of our lives. Nettie is trained in Stott Pilates & would love to share her passion with you.
Nettie grew up in Poland and holds Bachelor in Computer Science and Master in Education degrees. She is actively involved in Ohio River Road Runners Club (ORRRC). Besides Pilates and running, Nettie loves yoga, hiking, traveling, cooking plant-based food, and spending time with her family.
