Alex Ansu

As a lifelong athlete, after taking her first Pilates class at a Rock The Reformer studio, Alex knew that she had found a different kind of athleticism. Pilates helped to improve her running, prevented injury and she found all of that happened within a short time. The machine’s potential for an infinite number of movements and exercises blew Alex’s mind. The rest is history!

Leeor Kelly

Leeor's passion for Pilates began the moment she looped up for her first class. The emphasis on muscle lengthening and core provided a challenging workout that she couldn't get enough of, she was hooked! Leeor trained with RTR Pilates Training in Fall 2013 and fell in love with Pilates even more. So much so, that in May of 2014 she left the corporate world to join RTR Pilates full time as the Director of Instructor Development. In fall 2017 she trained with STOTT Pilates as well to further develop her skills. 

Inspiring others to become Pilates instructors and overseeing the on-boarding process brings Leeor happiness and increases her drive to become a strong instructor in the class room and an even stronger trainer for her colleagues. 

When she is not training instructors or in the class room you can find her on 14th St. listening to local music, making jewelry for her company Vylet Collections, or at home curled up with her cat.

Valerie Wiest

New mom and longtime fitness enthusiast, Valerie, began doing Pilates over 10 years ago at age 14. A former dancer and self proclaimed “gym rat” Valerie’s dedication to fitness is apparent in her classes. Although Valerie graduated as a language triple major from the University of Maryland in 2009, she found her true passion in teaching fitness classes. Driven by her desire to instill a love of exercise in others, she got certified to teach through PHI Pilates. In her pursuit of being a better instructor, Valerie also got recertified through Peak Pilates in 2013. In addition to her Pilates certification, Valerie is an ACE certified personal trainer, certified Beyond Barre instructor, and a certified spin instructor.


As the mother of a young child Valerie knows that the best workouts are efficient, making the most out of the time you have. Her teaching style is a testament to the fact that fitness classes can be challenging, efficient, effective and fun. Valerie practices what she preaches and uses a combination of Barre method, pilates and cardio and weight training to stay in shape. And it works!-- Who else do you know that walked out of the maternity ward wearing their pre-pregnancy jeans?

Eden Ellis

Using the skills I have learned from being a Rock The Reformer client first and certified thru Balanced Body, I get to help clients discover what they are truly capable of physically and mentally. The longest and most important relationship we have during our lives is the one with our mind and body, Pilates is designed to bring both together to help us focus on being present in the moment. One of the crazy blessings in having emergency open heart surgery is how Pilates had kept me in shape before and helped me recuperate quickly after. It makes me so happy when a client achieves their true potential and has that beautiful “A-ha” moment in understanding what Pilates has done for them. I am so lucky to be a part of their journey!
