Caitlin Fennessy, MA

Pilates Instructor

Caitlin Fennessy recently moved to Ballard from New York City where she received her certification at the Kane School with the inimitable Kelly Kane. She brings the kinetic, high-energy, sarcasm and creativity of her native town into each of her sessions - invigorating, challenging and encouraging each of her clients so they achieve the personal results they seek to glean from Pilates. A lifelong athlete, Cait found and instantly became a hooked and firm believer in the Pilates method while at Hamilton College in New York.

During her training, she gleaned extraordinary and unique education and experience working with "special populations" and the biomechanics of the Pilates method, and this has become of paramount importance to her in her teaching. A hands-on, welcoming and encouraging instructor, she focuses not only on ensuring her clients receive a tremendous, satisfyingly challenging, creative and enjoyable workout, but also finds great satisfaction in developing modifications to address musculo-skeletal issues that arise in the upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk.

Her greatest pride and pleasure comes from motivating her clients to knock down the barriers they put up for themselves and seeing them glow with pride as they work through the challenges of a workout and accomplish the individual goals they set together.
