Book Classes/Privates

I love sharing my passion for health and physicality with anyone who will listen.  I began working as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor in 2005 after graduating from the University of Utah with a B.F.A in Modern Dance.

Over the years I have taught Modern Dance technique, yoga, running, strength training, Mat and Equipment Pilates, and Dance Conditioning and incorporate any or all of those movement styles into my classes and sessions today, depending on what YOU need.

Through decades of personal study and working with amazing mentors and clients I have seen over and over that exercising with proper form is paramount to derive absolute benefits from the work.  My classes and training sessions emphasize working through correct posture and alignment and are individually tailored to suit participants needs.
I strive to be a “teaching assistant” along the path to you becoming the ultimate authority on your body. 
“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.”  ~Carol Welch



I am so happy that I found Faith at the beginning of my pilates practice! Faith is deeply knowledgeable about pilates and other forms of movement and is a warm and encouraging teacher. More than that, she’s able to effectively apply her knowledge to an individual’s needs with a keen eye, perceptive cueing, and a holistic outlook on fitness. I’ve learned a ton about anatomy and the way bodies work just from taking her classes! Also, as someone who is more interested in functional improvement rather than changing the way my body looks, I *deeply* appreciate that I have not once heard talk of “beach bodies this” or “slimming that” in her group classes or in our private sessions. I’ve worked with Faith for just under a year and have made remarkable progress in my strength and movement patterns, and have experienced total abatement of my chronic back pain. This is particularly impressive because the majority of our time together has been virtual. You really can’t go wrong with Faith’s guidance!
