Kristin is truly a godsend. I had never tried Pilates before and she was able to help me strengthen muscles that I never knew I had. She is incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, diligent, positive, caring, kind, and determined and was able to tailor my sessions to fit my own individual needs. Kristin is constantly expanding her own knowledge base to help find new ways to help her clients. Pilates is so different than any other exercise that I have ever done in that it made me aware of how my body's muscles work and how to strengthen them in a mindful way. And every week Kristin introduced a new exercise so it never got boring. She made me aware of how my entire body works from head to toe and how even the smallest movement can strengthen muscles. Working with Kristin has been life changing and empowering and I am grateful to have to opportunity to work with her.

My only regret in terms of working with Kristin is that I didn’t start sooner. I began taking Kristin’s class during the 3rd trimester of my 2nd pregnancy. After my first class I was hooked! Kristin is an amazing instructor. I can honestly say she is one of, if not, the best fitness instructors I have ever worked with. Every week she motivated me and helped me maintain my strength as my due date grew closer. I continued prenatal classes with Kristin until the day before my son’s birth and I couldn’t wait to resume once I was cleared for exercise again. Now Kristin is helping me during the transitional post-natal healing period. I look forward to continuing to regain my strength and flexibility under her care and guidance.

Doing Pilates with Kristin has really helped me throughout my pregnancy. Not only do I feel as though I am maintaining my strength, I feel healthy and have more energy. Kristin is very knowledgeable about prenatal care and accommodating to what my pregnancy needs have been. I plan on continuing to do Pilates with Mankind Pilates throughout my entire pregnancy, as well as after the birth of my baby.

Testimonials

Pilates with Kristin has been a wonderful experience for me! Kristin is hands down the best exercise instructor that I have ever had. I have tried yoga and other exercise classes, only to stop after the first class due to a lack luster instructor. But, Kristin is 100% committed to helping each of her students - giving them individual attention. Her genuine enthusiasm for Pilates and her expertise elevates the mat classes. She frequently goes above and beyond to tailor instruction on a need-by-need basis. I have often come home after class to check my email to find in my Inbox a note from Kristin offering up some additional exercises or other helpful information that would be beneficial for my personal needs. As a new mother herself, Kristin understands the challenges of having a little one and her infant classes are flexible and laid back, but also extremely informative. Lastly, even just after a week of working with Kristin, Pilates has made a significant impact on my strength and personal fitness. I feel more balanced and aligned, which I know I need for being a new mother - constantly having to rely on my core strength and upper back strength for all of the lifting! During my time at home, Pilates has been the highlight to my week!

Testimonials

I discovered Mankind Pilates as a referral through a dear friend. I wanted an intimate, small class Pilates experience in a supportive environment. I was still in the throws of postpartum-hood and needed a gentle instructor who understood my recovery. That is exactly what I found in Kristin! She has an unmatched passion for the power of Pilates on the body and on life. Kristin is able to create a very personal workout in a group setting. In fact, at the beginning of each class she observes everyone's posture and stance so that she can gear exercises and modifications to their specific needs. I have become so much stronger and confident taking her classes. So much so that when I have to miss a class, I am genuinely disappointed! Kristin is a wonderful teacher and takes her role in your strength and progress very seriously. Classes are always challenging, fresh, and fun!

Testimonials

I have never been a big fan of "working out", but practicing Pilates with Kristin has been a completely different and wonderful experience. I am amazed by her ability to observe even the smallest imbalance or discomfort during our sessions. She addresses whatever the issue is and then suggests some simple exercises at home as well (frequently posting links/articles on her Facebook site for me). Even during group mat classes, she is always giving everyone any adjustments they might need. Within a month of working with Kristin, I noticed a significant improvement in my strength and also body alignment. I was surprised that results were evident so quickly, and I know that is completely a credit to Kristin. She is so dedicated to her practice and her students, and motivates you to give all you have to your practice. The classes simply fly by, even though you are working so hard during them. I am officially addicted thanks to Kristin!
