If I were a cat, I would have already used at least three of my nine lives! Starting my life as a dancer and actress, I’ve strutted my stuff as a Vegas Showgirl, shook my bootie in a rap video, and ate mountains of burgers for national commercials. Along the way, I found Pilates, or rather it found me. After suffering from chronic pain in my back, someone suggested I try Pu-la-tees. Although I couldn’t pronounce it at first, it sure changed my life!
Turns out Pilates, is a man, a method, and ah-maz-ing! Not only did my back pain subside but a spark was ignited in my heart. I had found my second passion and it was PILATES!!! I studied, certified, and then studied some more. I worked in plenty of studios with plenty of instructors and found my niche in the classical New York method. It was then that I discovered that I was genuinely exceptional at something other than dancing…go figure!
Years later, a job on the Broadway stage brought me from Los Angeles to New York. While I fostered my love for performing, I still retained my infatuation with Pilates. As luck would have it, when I decided to retire, I had the good fortune of taking over a Pilates studio right in the heart of Manhattan. FORM Pilates Union Square was born.
Now, I share my passion for entrepreneurship with other fitness and wellness professionals, by helping them build their businesses. I coach, write, and speak on the power of following your heart.
“Lindsay Lopez, teaches Pilates in its purest form, improving her clients’ bodies and lives through the Classical New York method. Although Lindsay holds fast to the historical methods of Pilates, her approach is modern, accessible, and friendly.”
