Serene Wilken

About

our approach

Each client is unique. One-size-fits-all approaches will never help your body reach its full potential. We deliver custom exercise choices, tailored to you--your body, your current state, your one-of-a-kind fitness goals.


we believe in a unique and customized pilates experience for each and every client.

Serene is a natural motivator who teaches clients to embrace their power. Her way of sequencing a program and exercise repertoire, is limitless with her extensive fitness background. Her creativity with teaching, mixed with a healthy fun attitude is a recipe for success. She takes great pride in inspiring others to loving their body and movement at any age.

Serene stands tall at 5'1'', and is a woman of strength and rigor. Growing up as a gymnast she found freedom, strength and power with movement as she pushed herself beyond expectation in her sport.

However, as a teenager she relocated with her family away from her gym where she started her gymnastic career. The decision to take her career to the next level required a large commitment financially and for her family as well. So, she stopped traditional gym training and did her own training at home. Accessing tree branches as parallel bars, wood planks as beams, jumping for hours on her trampoline she still has an outlet for her love of movement. There was nothing like it, and she knew it would always be with her. 


While attending college, she took her first Pilates class and it re-awaked her love for movement. The focus, concentration and control she instilled in her body at a young age was found again! 


After practicing taking privates and group classes for 7 years, she took her love for Pilates to the next level and became a certified Pilates instructor through BASI (Body Arts and Science International) in 2011.


She is able to modify and tailor each exercise to meet a client’s needs. Individuals of all ages become stronger, more flexible and increase their mind body awareness through her classes. She loves to see her clients grow towards better health on their own Pilates journey. 

THE ONLY LIMITS ON YOUR LIFE ARE THOSE THAT YOU SET YOURSELF
