Pilates & Booty Barre
Tara Riley BIO
Exercise has always played a large part of Tara’s life. Originally from Philadelphia Tara trained as a competitive gymnast for 18 years, achieving the highest level. After retiring from her gymnastics career, Tara struggled to find a type of exercise that could challenge her both physically and mentally without further irritating the numerous injuries she withstood during her years as a gymnast.
Then she found Pilates.
Tara is a Balanced Body® Certified Pilates Instructor and Fusion PilatesTM for Pregnancy and Postnatal certified Pilates instructor, BootyBarre® Plus and BootyBarre® Flex & Flow Certified Instructor.
Tara enjoys working with all fitness abilities and loves helping clients achieve better wellbeing. As a busy mother of two very active boys, she understands the obstacles of staying fit and healthy as we age and doing Pilates keeps her feeling strong and able!
