Tiffany Lenoir started training with Amie at another studio and followed her to Highway 54 Pilates. Tiffany came into the studio because she did not want to lose the special friendship she developed with Amie and the great way Amie taught classes and private sessions and has been coming to the studio for five years. She likes to joke that if she didn’t know where Amie taught, she would track her down no matter what it took! Tiffany has participated in Private and Group classes in Pilates and THE GYROTONIC® Expansion System and continues to inspire us with her progress! Here are her answers to some of our questions about her experience.
When did you start working out at Highway 54 Pilates and why?
I originally started working with Amie at a different studio before she opened Highway 54 Pilates. When she told me, she was starting Highway 54 Pilates I told her I would follow here wherever she went!
Because of Amie’s never-ending encouragement. Amie showed me how with Pilates it is possible to lose weight and keep it off, and to be able to live without worrying about an reinjuring my back.
I take reformer classes, springboard classes, jump classes and burn at the barre classes. I work out 5 days a week which includes 2 hours on Saturdays.
To continue to get stronger both physically and emotionally.
Being able to lose 150 pounds and maintain the weight loss.
It scares me to think about how I used to be….so unhealthy and so overweight. I don’t ever want to be that way again. Amie’s never-ending support and our friendship helps me stay on track.
Now I am studying to become a Pilates instructor! I also spend time with my two rescue dogs Curtis and Chief!
Honestly, I don’t think I have a favorite exercise. I always joke with Amie that the best part of any exercise is when it’s over and we get to stretch!
Best place ever!
Don’t be scared. Pilates can change your life in so many positive ways and the changes will stay with you for a lifetime.
