Meet the Staff: Nancy
Nancy Roberto’s Professional Fitness Instruction journey began with a certification in Spinning in 2003. Nancy taught Spinning classes all over the greater Cincinnati area before being hired at a studio that also offered Reformer Pilates. As she grew her Spinning classes, she eventually decided to try out a Reformer class and was hooked! Between the Spinning and taking Reformer classes herself, she learned quickly how the two methods complimented each other!
Nancy says “Not only did the Reformer classes help me physically but mentally as well. That’s when I decided to get certified in it in 2013.”
Nancy has been teaching Reformer as well as Pilates mat classes since and now has a passion for it! She continued with her Pilates education and in 2016 and got certified in barre Pilates.
Nancy says that “As an instructor there’s no better feeling than helping and seeing people get stronger physically and mentally and achieving their goals!”

We’re excited for you to meet Nancy and benefit from her wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion for Pilates.
