People keep asking if I teach pilates when they hear I am opening a studio. No, I do not. I see the confusion and I tell them, I simply love pilates and wanted a studio that didn't exist around here. I fell in love with pilates 14 years ago. I loved what it did for my body and my mind. Over the years, due to knee injuries, I had to stop running. I knew I needed other types of fitness in my life. I struggled to find what I was looking for without having to go to several different places and have several different memberships.
As I began to travel and see other studios in different cities, I began to long for a place at home that outwardly conveyed what I felt Pilates did for me on the inside, while offering several different fitness options under one roof. Oh and were fun and challenging! This is where PBB was born. I feel what we have put together at PBB is the studio I have been searching for. I hope you love it as much as I do. - Katy, Owner PBB

Becky started in the fitness industry in 2005 when she discovered Spinning for post baby weight loss and her love for exercise just continued to evolve. From Spinning she went on to become certified in group exercise, then became a certified personal trainer and loved the nutrition side of things so much, she became an ACE Certified Health Coach. All of these things were great until she had a major setback in 2013 with a back injury.

She started as a student and then began teaching Pilates Reformer in 2015. So far, she has completed Reformer 1, 2 and 3 and is excited to see where this takes her.
