Personal Best Pilates Studio

Johanna Avery

Johanna Avery FiataruoloJohanna has been an avid practitioner of Pilates for over a decade. While working in the corporate world, she relied on her Pilates sessions to maintain the highest levels of fitness and energy. When it was time for a lifestyle change, she decided to become a fulltime Pilates instructor, and earned her Pilates instructor certificate from Core Dynamics Pilates of Santa Fe, New Mexico. She achieved the status of Certified Pilates Teacher from the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA-CPT) in 2011.

Johanna has been teaching Pilates since 2005. Upon moving to Kansas City, she researched many of the Pilates studios in the area, and found Personal Best offers the most comprehensive and professional services in the region – both for clients and staff, and is pleased to join the team.  Trained on all equipment and mat formats, Johanna loves to return the gift of Pilates to her clients – at any level.  Johanna received her B.A. from Colgate University and MA from Washington University.

Why she loves her job (in her own words):

Johanna loves working with Personal Best Pilates clients because they share her commitment to health and well being.  She also values the studio’s emphasis on learning and innovation, which keeps us all “green and growing.”


Personal Best Pilates Studio is the ONLY Pilates Studio in the Kansas City area that requires PMA Certification for all our Pilates Teachers.
