Danielle mitchell

Owner & Instructor

Danielle holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice. After working a corporate desk job for many years she began to feel the wear and tear in her body. This led her to Pilates in 2011 where she fell madly in love with the discipline and soon thereafter completed her classical Pilates certification in Santa Monica, CA. She is a third generation instructor who has experience with all ages, injuries and athletic abilities.

 

Danielle also holds a Pre & Post Natal Pilates Specialist Certification through Fusion Pilates. Having this additional certification is essential when instructing prenatal, postnatal and menopausal women. Not many instructors in LA hold this very vital certification, or have her personal experience in this field.    

Whether she is teaching a private or duet session, she is known for balancing her cheerful, energetic encouragement with butt-kicking workouts, all the while keeping it fun. On a daily basis Danielle is inspired by the changes she sees in front of her as she watches people build strength and make health a priority. Danielle will always guarantee "a sweat and a laugh"!

When she is not in the studio Danielle enjoys spending time with her husband and toddler son doing all things LA.
