MY  STORY

KAREN HAQUE

CERTIFIED CLASSIC PILATES INSTRUCTOR since 2013

I want to provide you with

a safe, challenging & fun atmosphere

helping YOU succeed on

YOUR path to fitness and well-being

One morning just before celebrating a landmark birthday, I awoke and really saw myself in the mirror. I was heading close to obese having slowly mounted on pounds, especially in my mid-section. I realized if I did not do something now, eventually my quality of life would suffer.  At that moment, I made the decision to put myself at the top of my “to-do" list joining a fitness club, and investing in personal training.

 

My program included weekly sessions with personal trainers to keep me motivated and to hold me accountable. With an exercise routine consisting of weights, cardio, plyometrics, Pilates, and paying closer attention to my eating habits -that first year I achieved my goals reaching my ideal weight.
 

I recognized that Pilates was the most efficient way to keep my body flexible & balanced. Strengthening my abdominals helps to reduce significantly the strain & stiffness in my back with the surprise benefit –relieving my stress! Pilates became not only the core of my fitness routine, but I then made a life-altering decision to become a Pilates Instructor. I found that teaching comes naturally to me. I left behind my management career to open go-toPILATES, devoting myself to this fulfilling vocation where I strive to help others establish body awareness and maintain an active, and  healthy lifestyle.​
