A job relocation brought Roberta to Bahrain in 1999 after spending the early years of her career working in the insurance industry in London. Eventually, she had the opportunity to leave the corporate world behind to nurture her interests in the biomechanics of the body, Yoga, and Pilates. Roberta has been studying, practicing and teaching Pilates for the last 9 years and became an Instructor Trainer for Merrithew Health & Fitness™ specializing in STOTT PILATES® in 2009. Her educational background includes language studies in Italian and English and a degree in statistics and mathematics. The proud owner of STUDIO RCT, Roberta is recognized by the Pink Ribbon Program as a post - rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist (BCES) and holds certifications in TRX Group Suspension Trainer, TRX Rip Trainer, and TRX Sports Medicine.
