Shari, thank you for your DVD.  You are in my family room with me at least a couple times a week. 


You are a wonderful instructor!


Shari has such an encouraging spirit.


I continue to take what you have taught me and apply it to my daily life.


Shari's workout covers so many bases it is hard to find a replacement.


Shari does magic with muscles. For years I did Pilates on my own. Shari made me realize how important the subtle stretches, moves and breathing are. She is a master of explaining how each exercise impacts the body. Her ability to connect with her students makes the experience as effective as possible.


About Shari


Shari’s passion for fitness led her down a new career path. After twenty plus years in Chicago Media, both English and Spanish Television, Shari began a search for work closer to home and found her true calling with the discovery of Pilates.

After receiving her Pilates Certification in 2004 through PhysicalMind Institute, she began teaching Mat Pilates. Deciding to incorporate private in-home training in her sessions, she earned her Personal Training Certification from NETA in 2007. Furthering her passion for learning and teaching, she became Certified on the Pilates apparatus in 2009 through Power Pilates.

Shari has been teaching & offering personal training for the last ten years. Currently she lives in a location enabling her to teach in three states – Illinois, Indiana & Michigan. She offers weekly classes both in Chicago and Indiana as well as private sessions in the tristate area.

Shari’s goal is to help lead her clients down the path to good health through exercise, healthier food choices, and a positive outlook. She believes in caring for the triad of body, mind and spirit. Her own personal commitment to a healthy lifestyle is a strong motivator for her clients as she gently shows them how to enjoy life while having the benefit of optimal health.
