In 2001, Kiki began her fitness & wellness journey through the practice of Pilates. After so many years of injuries, multiple surgeries and what seemed like ineffective PT; she finally found an alternative method of healing that changed her life. In 2007, Kiki got certified as a Pilates Instructor through Balanced Body. After 3 more years of continuing education through the Balanced Body Rehabilitation Summit, she received a variety of certifications specializing in Pre/Post Op & Pre/Post Natal Pilates Sports Rehabilitation, biomechanics and functional fitness. In 2009 she decided to shake things up and got certified to teach Lagree Method in addition to classical and contemporary Pilates. Just before she launched her business, COR, in 2012 she added certifications in Ballet Barre, TRX and NitroFit Vibration Therapy classes.
