Bec Stivanello - Pilates Instructor
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INSTRUCTING? Since 2015 HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED? I had been working in Corporate Sales for over 10 years, which at times was quite stressful and I found that I was constantly getting sick and run down as and I didn’t make time for my health and well being. A friend encouraged me to do a Pilates class and to my surprise I absolutely loved it! I was hooked! I found that it was my vice to relieve the work day stress and it was an opportunity for me to focus on myself. And as a bonus, it helped tone and strengthen my body! Winning!⠀ ⠀ WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME AN INSTRUCTOR?⠀ Have you ever loved something so much you just couldn’t stop thinking or talking about it? I knew I just had to do my instructors certification, so I could be a part of helping people achieve their goals and fall in love with Pilates as much as I had!⠀ ⠀ FAVOURITE MOVE OR PART OF THE BODY TO TRAIN?⠀ Abs and Oblique’s for sure! I love Side Lying Double leg lifts and planking! Nothing feels better than feeling that burn and seeing the results!⠀ ⠀ TOP 3 THINGS ABOUT YOUR JOB?⠀ Without a doubt it is the clients. They are amazing and I love seeing them build their strength and confidence. It is so awesome to be a part of their journey of helping them achieve their goals. ⠀ What I love about Core Contour is it has such a community feel and the studio has such a welcoming, supportive and positive vibe! ⠀ I also feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team of instructors that are an absolute pleasure to work with!⠀ ANY ADVICE FOR A NEWBIE? It can be overwhelming to start something new and that is totally understandable. Just know you will be fully supported and encouraged by the Core Contour Team and you won’t regret it! Pilates is life changing and has so many benefits! QUALIFICATIONS: Matt Certification ⠀ Reformer Certification ⠀ ⠀ INTERESTS OUTSIDE WORK?⠀ Spending time with my husband, family, friends and my two dogs! I hate to admit it (well not really!) but I am a little addicted to reality TV! Isn’t everyone??
