Sherri Reed

Pilates became a part of Sherri’s life in 2006, after hours of grueling cardio and years of competitive weight lifting began to take their toll on her back. Pilates made her psi subside—she was finally able to lift her legs without shooting pain in her low back and hip, and the numbness in her hands had subsided. She was able to do activities that she hadn’t done in years, giving her a new lease on life.

Sherri found that she was also very focused both physically and mentally, and knew that she wanted to bring all that Pilates has to offer into other people’s lives. She began her teacher training certification program at Studio BE Pilates in 2007, and received her certification from Dilla Mastrangelo of Harmony Studio in Pittsburgh, PA in 2009.

Sherri views Pilates as a journey; the body is ever-changing and Pilates is always challenging. Wellness and movement are a large part of her life, and she is proud that she can share this journey with others. She is a true believer that Pilates will enhance and, if need be, change your life!

What is your favorite thing about being a Pilates teacher?

My favorite aspect of being a Pilates teacher is the daily interactions with my clients. Each client has their own strengths and challenges that need my attention. As a client progresses and grows within their practice, new strengths appear and new challenges are faced. Likewise, as personal goals are reached, new goals are created. Teaching Pilates everyday is always new.

What is something that might surprise us about you?

In high school I was a cheerleader, which may not be a surprise to some; however, I was also President of Orchestra and sat first chair Viola.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?

I would like to become and experienced auto mechanic. I know I have many of the skills needed to perform the repair work…I just do not have the experience to do them.
