You may have noticed several new names on the schedule lately. That’s because our training team has been diligently working to train new instructors, and onboard them to our team so we can continue providing our signature Pilates classes that you’ve come to love!
This “Meet Our Team” series will roll out monthly to introduce you to our team!
Meet Gayle C! Gayle has been teaching with us for almost a full two years! She started in March of 2019 and has been a positive presence on our team ever since.

She loved RTR’s contemporary approach to teaching reformer Pilates, she signed up for training and has been teaching with us ever since!

Why do you LOVE Pilates Gayle?
It makes me feel strong, calm and optimistic.
How did you start instructing at RTR Pilates?
Over the years as an RTR member, various instructors encouraged me to do it. Having been a Pilates student for 15 years, I knew my commitment to it was secure and finally decided to take the plunge.
When you’re not teaching, where can we find you?
Walking with my teenagers, my friends or by myself; interviewing celebrities for AARP.org; and in the warmer months, enjoying the sunshine at the pool, beach or tennis courts.
Top 3 artists/songs for your Pilates music playlist:
The Weeknd; Linds Ronstadt; Earth, Wind & Fire
Favorite Pilates exercise/movement & why?
Reverse Seated Ab Work, nothing makes your abs quiver than this, any variation!
What is your must-have item when teaching Pilates?
Sneakers for sure, to give me energy!
What’s the one thing you want your clients to feel when/after taking your class?
