Michele Bouquet

Michele is a native Washingtonian and lifelong fitness enthusiast. She began doing Pilates over 15 years ago and it soon became her primary form of resistance training when Rock The Reformer by Potomac Pilates first opened. She has been attending reformer classes daily ever since. When the opportunity presented itself to participate in RTR Instructor Training, she leapt at it. She has also completed the Balanced Body certification training for anatomy, mat and reformer. Michele is able to use her many years of knowledge from weight training, TRX, Pilates and yoga to create challenging classes that help others reach their fitness goals. When she’s is not teaching, Michele can be found taking long bike rides and working on her library of Pilates classes.
