Julie is a fitness fanatic. As a mother of four, she has spent countless hours in the gym, on the field, cheering from the sidelines and helping to coach and organize her children’s various sporting activities. After raising two Division-I rowers, her passion for the sport lead her to assume the position as coach at Three Rivers Rowing Association for the First Row Program.
Her lifelong passion for physical fitness lead her to find the benefit of Pilates for her own movement/fitness but also to maximize her rowers’ performance on the water. Julie has always had an appreciation for the balance of strength and flexibility. Julie pursued her interest in Pilates by becoming Peak Certified Level I, and is now working towards her level II certification, with the hopes of completing her Comprehensive Certification within the next few years. She supports her clients through their introduction to Pilates, and works to help each individual achieve their own personal fitness goals. Julie is the “Zen” of Clearly Pilates…. bringing a peaceful push to your progression!

Sandor was first introduced to Pilates started when he was a senior in college and decided to take a credit hour Pilates course for a semester at the University of Kentucky. He specifically took the course from a personal trainer perspective, in order to enhance his career in that field. He has a four year degree in Exercise Physiology. He has found his foundation in Pilates to be enormously helpful with his clients, as his greater knowledge of form deepens their work and allows for safe movement patterns. Sandor has been involved in health and fitness for 10 years and has been certified for 5 years so far with ACE. Sandor recently completed the Peak Pilates Mat Certification. He is constantly studying new and fun methods to bring his clients variety in their training to meet their fitness goals. Regardless of what level of fitness you may be, he believe in building strength by mastering the fundamentals rather than doing a nose dive into all the exercises. Being able to help people enjoy their lives more comfortably and reach new levels of fitness and movement, that they didn't know they could reach, is why he loves being a professional fitness instructor.
