Welcome Sharon Borrows to our Fitness Department!


Personal Trainer/Pilates Instructor

It is with much motivation and passion Sharon endeavors to help people improve their wellbeing through Pilates. She knows the changes it has made in her own postural alignment, core strength, and overall fitness level and she is excited to share her Pilates practice with others. Sharon holds an ACE Certificate for Personal Fitness Training, as well as a Specialty Certificate in Mind Body Exercise. Being a Personal Fitness Trainer she is well versed in functional training, postural deviations, and muscle imbalances. Her love of Pilates and core conditioning translates into a higher level of fitness and/or performing activities of daily life with more ease. It is through an emphasis on corrective exercise and proper muscle activation she provides education that will lead to greater mind body connections.

In all aspects of life, Sharon is enthusiastic to share her holistic and well-balanced approach that will inspire others. Over the years she has obtained a wide scope of knowledge in natural remedies, clean eating nutrition, and detoxification. Her approach to fitness is to create a challenge as far as possible without compromising form or being counterproductive. Her motto for achieving transformation is to "walk out feeling something, otherwise you may have not done anything." Sharon regards every individual with the highest respect, empathy, and compassion for their unique circumstance and perspective. She brings this to her fitness training and Pilates class by introducing as much customization as is possible. She believes we all started from somewhere and are a work in progress, but with consistency we can achieve our goals and enjoy success.
