Founder Liz McKee first stepped into a Pilates studio in 2003 and has been a devoted practitioner and educator ever since. Intrigued by the concentration and mindfulness that each exercise required, she became certified to teach when she was 19 years old. In addition to her multiple Pilates and Barre certifications, she holds a BS in Vertebrate Physiology from Penn State and and is certified in Dynamic Neuromuscular Therapy module 1.

why LSF?

Unlike conventional workouts that create overuse and bulk, Pilates will lengthen and strengthen the muscles, increasing elasticity and mobility. Creating balance in the musculature will keep you looking, feeling, and moving at your best.

LSF combines the principles of Pilates with unconventional exercises and stretching to deliver a unique and modern approach. Recruiting smaller, often-neglected muscles and releasing heavily facilitated muscles that are creating dysfunctional movement patterns.
