My name is A. Shelby Ladnier. I started my fitness career at the young age of 16. My mother brought me to her exercise classes every week, to connect with family. Not long after this, the owner of the facility became pregnant with her first child. As fate would have it, the owner asked my mom if her daughter would be interested in taking over for her while she was on maternity leave. That was the beginning of a very rewarding adventure for me.
My focus throughout these years has been to build and develop my customer servicing abilities, while continuing my educational pursuits. I was influenced from a very young age on every aspect of how fitness was evolving. I was also experiencing a connection with my students and the community, that kept inspiring me to keep learning and teaching.
In 1998 I completed and became an Athletics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA) certified instructor. Followed by receiving a Bachelor’s in Business Mgmt., and a Master’s in Health Care Administration. All while working a full-time job, and teaching on the weekends. From the year 2000 to today, I have continued to gain more credentials in every area of fitness. I now study and teach STOTT Pilates Reformer to all ages and all levels. The enjoyment of studying, teaching, connecting, and continuing to learn, has been an amazing journey, and I'm still evolving. My engagement in the fitness, dance, yoga, aquatic, and Pilates world, has groomed me into the instructor I am today.
My classes are tailored to help rehabilitate, redesign, and athletically condition the body. My focus is on safety, mind/body connection, mindfulness theories, and functional movement. Coupled with gentle guidance to help students improve their alignment and reach their optimal goals. When I'm not studying, teaching, or training, I spend time with my family and my two wonderful dogs. I stay very busy and enjoy inspiring students to evolve with their mind and their bodies. Come take my class sometime.
