Personal Best Pilates Studio

Melissa Martin, Director of Studio Operations

Melissa MartinMelissa has been a Pilates practitioner for over a decade, and completed her 500 hour comprehensive equipment training at Personal Best Pilates Instructor Academy in October, 2004. Trained in both Pilates mat and equipment, she acheived the status of Pilates Method Alliance Certified Pilates Teacher (PMA-CPT) in 2011. She holds a BLA, magna cum laude, from Wichita State.

Pilates has impacted Melissa in a profound way. She began doing Pilates after undergoing back surgery for a herniated disc. At the time she was completely unable to move her left leg. She started working with a Pilates Studio in Wichita, KS., and soon was able to move without pain. Since then, she has continued to use Pilates to keep her stronger, healthier and pain-free. When she’s not sharing working with clients, or spending time with son, she loves writing and music.

Why she loves her job (in her own words)

I know what it’s like to suffer with extreme pain, and how empowering it was for me to overcome my pain with Pilates. The best part of my job is helping other people to triumph over pain. I enjoy watching my clients as they grow stronger, more flexible and even happier!


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