CACL Pilates Instructors Receive Fitting Awards

Download PDF

by Karen Eagleton, Colorado Athletic Club, 2012

I became a Pilates convert five years ago. While healing from an injury, I began attending reformer classes weekly—and began to see measurable results. Perhaps what impressed me most, though, was the quality of instruction we have at CACI.

So I wasn't surprised to learn that two of our instructors recently received impressive awards from Wellbridge: Natalie Gennett for Pilates Coordinator of the Year in the State of Colorado and Jennifer Lynn Busby for Pilates Instructor of the Year in the State of Colorado.

Natalie Gennett, a Nationally Recognized Instructor Trainer of STOTT PILATES®, serves as the Pilates Coordinator for CACI. In her job, Natalie oversees 6 instructors, schedules classes, maintains and updates the reformer studio, teaches mat and reformer classes as well as private clients, attends numerous training sessions each year to stay abreast of current instruction, and trains both new and veteran instructors who come to CACI, one of only three STOTT PILATES Corporate Training Centers in North America, to learn from her.

Students in Natalie's classes know how deserving she is to be recognized for the outstanding job she does. Jim Reed, a 5-year Pilates student, calls Natalie "the best" and appreciates her consummate professionalism and the extra effort she puts into her classes. He cited her New Year's Day class with mimosas and her summer class with the reformers moved outside as just some of the special touches she includes to make Pilates fun. Jackie Peebles, another Pilates enthusiast, expressed how the program at CACI has improved under Natalie's guidance, from the equipment maintenance to the organized schedule and variety of classes to the outstanding staff.

Jenny Lynn, a Nationally Recognized Instructor Plus, recently moved to Colorado from Florida and serves as Pilates coordinator at the CAC Tabor Center facility and also teaches classes at CACI. Jenny Lynn is a terrific addition to an already solid group of instructors. Student Stephen Driggers refers to Jenny Lynn as the "queen of cues" because of her ability to cue individual students with "spot on" instruction in a full class of people. Jim Reed has also taken Jenny Lynn's classes and calls her "exacting, excellent, and professional."

I have taken both Natalie's and Jenny Lynn's classes—and I will definitely continue to do so. I admire them for their passion for both STOTT PILATES and their clients, their professionalism, and the breadth of their knowledge. Most of all, I appreciate their expertise and their warmth, which make their classes not only effective but also fun. Congratulations to both Natalie and Jenny Lynn for their well-deserved awards.
