PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher
Fayth trained as a classical dancer and competitive swimmer from the age of two. Growing up these two activities seemed to compliment each other well in that dance provided strength training, agility training, flexibility, and proprioceptive and coordinative benefits. Swimming was fantastic cardio and low impact. Eventually choosing a focus became evident and Fayth went on to study dance more seriously in High School and attended an arts conservatory during her High School time. Once Fayth moved to New York and danced professionally time started to take a toll on the body. She also found she was swimming less and finding it hard to find low impact cardio. This led her to find Pilates and rebounding through Pilates on Fifth in New York. Many years of practice and study (both physical and academic) went into fine tuning the skills. Eventually Fayth wanted to take a try at owning her own business and found a niche in the Chicago market.
