Shelly Baldwin has been a certified mat Pilates instructor for the past eight years. Throughout her career as a fitness professional she has worked at several fitness centers and studios in Carlisle Pa. Shelly's love for Pilates started around 2002 when she saw the infomercial for Winsor Pilates, and she has been hooked ever since. In addition to Pilates, Shelly is also certified in yoga, cycling and senior fitness.
Pilates is a wonderful compliment to other activities such as: biking, running and swimming. Pilates works the entire body to lengthen and strengthen muscles, making it a complete and total body workout. As a trail runner and running coach, Shelly has found that Pilates strengthens the abdominal muscles helping to stay balanced and coordinated. Since Pilates also focuses on legs and glute muscles, it can help to prevent sport's related injuries.
In addition to her fitness certifications, Shelly is a 2002 graduate of Lock Haven University with a degree in Communications. She has competed in the 2014 Boston Marathon, and has completed over 20 marathons and ultra marathons.
