Meet Kerry

Certified Cycling Instructor

I am a Dayton native who loves calling Ohio my home! I'm a Miami University Alum with a degree in the History of Art and Architectural. I moved to Chicago after college and some how found myself teaching pilates for over 10 years and absolutely love it and the people met along the way. I come from an athletic family, spending my childhood between track meets, swim meets, soccer tournaments and football games. I am grateful that my family had almost daily workouts at a gym and equal trips to Ben & Jerrys; it's all about balance, right?!

I began my STOTT Pilates training in my 20's while living in Chicago – thanks to my mom's encouragement! – and continued it through the STOTT training center at "Ballet Memphis" when my husband and I moved to Memphis,TN. While living there, and experiencing the best BBQ ever, I had the opportunity to have my own studio within a wellness center. Overlooking the Mighty Mississippi, I worked closely with a wide range of clients from athletes, those living with parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis patients and cancer survivors.

We found our way back to Dayton where I became an instructor with Practice Fitness. It was there that I developed a strong sense of pride for our small business and fitness community. Amongst my ongoing continuing education courses, I have focused on athletic conditioning, TRX Suspension Training and cycling. My husband and I are happy and proud parents of our four year old twins, Henry and Quinn, and our furry four-legged "kids", Larry and Bill.

Why you will love my class:

I absolutely love teaching and inspiring others! My greatest joy is watching a client evolve through their understanding and appreciation of their body. The best advice I have been given about instructing is that the client/group needs my guidance and motivation to help you stay focused and to be present. We have so many distractions in life and the hour I get to spend with you will be about presence, focus and drive. It is my joy to take time out of our busy lives to make ourselves better!
