Melissa Phillips was introduced to Pilates through the dance department at Wayne State University where she studied and graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance. After college, her dance training continued for three summers in New York with the Jose Limon Dance Company. Melissa danced with the Mack Avenue Dance Company, DDC Dances, ArtLab J and Inovus. For over 20 years she has been a dance instructor within the Metro Detroit Area.
While training at Wayne State University, she discovered firsthand how Pilates can help build core strength, increase flexibility, improve posture and rehabilitate injuries. After studying under many distinguished Pilates instructors, Melissa received her certification through STOTT Pilates. While continuing her education Melissa is also a NASM certified personal trainer and certified GYROTONIC® instructor. As your trainer Melissa will be working to improve and help you reach your personal goals. In her clients, Melissa enjoys seeing the increase of strength, flexibility, and over all improvements. With every session you will feel the difference both physically, mentally, and wonder why Pilates was not a part of your life sooner.
