Originally from California, Shawn practiced Pilates for 6 years. After the birth of her daughter she realized what a pivotal part Pilates had played throughout her pregnancy and after. She decided to get certified to help others find an exercise that they truly enjoy, one that can be done whether they were 16 or 60, and one that can be done whether you’re a professional athlete or just starting your workout regimen. Shortly after her certification she came into Afterglow and saw that they had the same mission. She first started at the front desk and now is teaching Hot Core Fusion where she can incorporate her Pilates background in a fun and energetic class. She’s always looking to further her knowledge of fitness and loves to find ways to make working out fun.
