Why Pilates can be so useful

Kaleen shares her story of transforming her knee pain with exercise which led her to her passion for Pilates, becoming a teacher, and designing an entirely new reformer. Kathryn and Kaleen discus why mainstream fitness can sometimes chew people up and spit them out, and why progressive strengthening is the key to enjoying daily life.

Kaleen is the founder and CEO of Flexia, a connected fitness company that brings the Pilates studio experience into your living room with a smart Pilates machine and immersive online classes. She holds a B.S. Mechanical Engineering and is a certified Pilates instructor, with deep roots in the world of product development having worked in the automotive, medical device, and fitness equipment industries.
