Alice "Ali" Koett

TEACHER

Qualifications: Stott Pilates Comprehensive Certification; BS in Athletic Training and Physical Education with an emphasis in Kinesiology, specializing in rehabilitation of the shoulder, knee and lower spine; physical therapy assistant

Why I teach Pilates: My passion for teaching Pilates comes from working in physical therapy with clients who had sustained many different injuries, helping them work smarter and not harder, and reaching their personal goals. I enjoy helping clients meet their individual goals as well as rehabilitating them to get back to a quality of life without pain. I always strive to meet my clients' goals to live a happy, healthy life.

Favorite Pilates exercise: Of all the Pilates movements, my exercise of choice is the Up Stretch. This exercise focuses on stability and mobility of so many parts of the body at once. It's challenging and an overall body workout that when executed correctly has improved the quality of the lives of so many of my clients.

In my free time: I thoroughly enjoy coaching young women's basketball at the high school level. My other passion is being a mom to my three boys. Watching them participate in almost every sport, they keep my very busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am their biggest fan!
