Personal Best Pilates Studio

Denise Settle, PMA-CPT,
Certified Juvo Baord Teacher

Amanda JesseeDenise has been an avid fitness enthusiast for over a decade.  After her Rheumatologist informed her about the mind/body connection Pilates offers as well as a focus on strength and mobility, her curiosity was piqued.  As someone who was suffered with Arthritis since her teens, this seemed like a perfect pairing.  She tried one Pilates class, was hooked!  After several years of practicing the Pilates method, began her quest to become a certified Personal Best Pilates Mat & Equipment Instructor in 2011. 

She holds BBA in Marketing from Washburn University.  Prior to Pilates, Denise has held a variety of corporate positions in the advertising/sales/customer service field.  She has now decided to pursue a career that focuses on her true passion: a love for helping people to improve their life in all aspects thru fitness.  Even (especially) if they suffer from chronic pain! 

Why she loves her job (in her own words)

Pilates has done so much for me, from improving my overall outlook to assisting with better pain management to improved flexibility.  Also, a great side effect is that Pilates entirely reshaped my body!  I truly love working with people and want to help them achieve their fitness goals by being empathetic to their individual needs and goals.  The highlight of my day will be seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces when I help them to achieve goals that at first seemed out of reach.
