Life Moves Studio



Certified Pilates Instructor


Shelly discovered the magic of Pilates in 2003. As a busy mother of three, she found herself struggling to manage her own health. Her futile efforts to lose weight and be fit led her on a crusade of discovery. She read countless books and tried many different exercise regimens. After the third gym membership, she found herself at the local YMCA where she took her first Pilates class. Only later did she realize how fortunate she was to experience Pilates from a classically trained instructor. She coupled a 45-minute step aerobics class, with a 45-minute Pilates class and almost immediately saw and felt the results. It made perfect sense. She discovered the secret! The weight finally fell off. She gained the flexibility, strength and stamina she needed to keep up with her daughters! She became passionate about sharing this secret with others.


Shelly studied Biology through Oregon State University. She received her first Pilates certification in 2007. She obtained her Comprehensive Pilates Certification through Peak Pilates in 2011. She has taught continuously over the past 7 years, teaching thousands of sessions and hundreds of different body types from the professional athlete to geriatrics at Lifetime Fitness. She had a terrific educational experience working with in a chiropractic clinic, Chateau Spinal Rehab in Braselton, Georgia for 3 years.


In 2007 Shelly met Dana. They shared a mutual passion for helping their clients reach their fitness goals. They shared ideas and together developed a mindset that brought their clients results. Together they developed Lifemoves Studio as a complete fitness center.
