A Thankful Trainee

Our training coordinator, Jessie, was so pleased to receive this Thank You note from one of our loyal clients who has recently become a Trainee in the STOTT PILATES Matwork training at Equilibrium.

We were not only touched but inspired by her words and wanted to share them with you:

“Thank you so much for helping me with the whole process of becoming a Pilates instructor. You have gone above and beyond to help me achieve this. I am so grateful to Equilibrium, especially you, for helping me to see what a great community this is. I couldn’t be happier here! Thank you, Thank you for taking me in and letting me be a part of the equilibrium family! You’re the best, <3 Amanda Hewitt”

Thank you Amanda for sharing your experience with us. We look forward to your continued success in the Pilates industry.
