Pilates & Fitness



“I went to Italy and I climbed every bell tower and castle step I found!  Pilates has made a huge difference, in my knees.  NO PAIN!  Thank you! D.C.


No matter how bad my day has been or how unmotivated I arrive,  I always leave a workout with Wendy feeling great about myself.” -S.G.

I was a complete novice and exercise-phobic, but I took the plunge and joined Wendy’s fitness classes. My first class was enjoyable, and from the start I felt relaxed.  I am still going strong after being a part of the class for 18 months.  I still feel the effects of sore muscles each week, but I always look forward to the next class.” -C.H.

“Wendy’s workouts stimulate my body, mind, and soul. When I leave there, I am curiously exhausted and exhilarated at the same time!” -J.L.

When I started at Rise and Shine it had been a LONG time since I had worked out so I was very weak and out of shape. It has been amazing to watch my strength and endurance increase week after week. I feel like a new woman!” E.L.

“I could do very little when I meet Wendy and now I am walking and do my every day activities. Thank You Wendy!”- P.H.



“Wendy and I began working together two years after the death of my husband.  I knew I had been making great progress on the grief/healing journey, however, I was feeling “stuck”. Wendy took me down some scary paths to help me peel away the layers; however, I knew I was emotionally safe and we were doing important work….I could go on and on about how this angel has helped me get back on the road to a healthier me!  For the first time in two years, I am looking forward to a future and not spending too much time in the past.  The scary issues have become less scary with Wendy’s guidance and I am now “unstuck”!!  With the new wisdom I have discovered with Wendy’s expert, guiding hand, I have the tools to help me with the difficult times.   I am forever indebted to Wendy for helping me rediscover myself! ” LW

Wendy’s support has helped me to look at my actions and think about the underlying causes of some of my actions/reactions that trigger overeating or stepping off of my exercise routine.  With her encouragement and support I have found ways to overcome stress that do not include overeating.  I’ve found my sessions to be very helpful to my overall health, mental and physical.“-  S.P.

“It has given me the start I needed to feel better about myself…physically, spiritually and emotionally. It has motivated me to eat better, exercise when I can and take better care of myself. I love the group and comrade we have formed over the past month. It’s a great group with a lot of the same common goals. We all lead very different lives but deal with the same issues. Loved all of it!”

“Through the Align program I have learned that it is not about being perfect. It is more about self love, positive self talk, trying again, never giving up, holding yourself accountable to yourself, and asking others for help. Align created a safe place to share with others and helps you realize that you are not on this journey alone!”
