Peggy Gain

Peggy has been a fitness fanatic since she can remember. After a car accident, she had ruptured a disc in her lower back, but she was determined to avoid surgery and taught herself how to relieve the pain through her own studies of Pilates. After taking a few privates at The Pilates Barre Studio, she started her official Pilates training through The Core Center’s PMA approved comprehensive Pilates teacher training. She loves researching and expanding her knowledge on the benefits and practice of Pilates. Peggy is passionate about helping others reach their fitness goals, feel better about themselves, and work through current aches and pains. Peggy truly believes there is no reason to kill yourself to be fit and healthy. So, if you want to be worked out, feel the burn, but also feel amazing after, come see her!
