Casey Gelb

OWNER

 

Watching her mom at Jazzercise classes at just 2 years old, Casey was exposed to the supportive, community atmosphere of group fitness. Always attracted to the health and fitness industry, in 2007 Casey began a career with Lululemon Athletica as the community events and marketing manager. Working closely with the best local gyms and studios allowed her to learn from expert instructors. This led to teaching outdoor boot camps under the tutelage of Traci Bartee in 2008. In 2010, when Casey took her first Booty Barre class, she was hooked. It is a perfect combination of everything she loves; yoga, ballet, and cardiovascular training. Casey went on to complete world-renowned fitness expert Tracey Mallett’s very first Booty Barre certification course. Blending the styles of her mentors along the way, Casey leads a challenging, fun and innovative class. Her motto is demonstrated in each class; you are stronger than you think you are and you must push beyond what’s comfortable to see change! In her off time, Casey enjoys hiking, yoga, stand up paddle boarding and spending time with her husband, Josh.

INSTRUCTOR

I first discovered Pilates in an effort to recover from a back injury I sustained in a car accident in 2003. A physiotherapist recommended Pilates as part of my recovery program and I found that Pilates not only helped relieve and improve my back pain, but also improved my posture and overall strength. Inspired to understand more about how Pilates worked, and by way of a self help program, I decided to not only participate in Pilates but take my interest further by becoming a qualified instructor so I could help others in learning and experiencing the benefits of Pilates. I attended my first Barre class in 2013 and really enjoyed the low impact, high energy workout to music. I decided to do my teacher training with Barre Concept and Booty Barre, as a way of adding a cardiovascular element to my workout, but also so I could offer this to my clients.

  • Pilates Sports Centre 2015
