Our Instructors

Kelley Watson 
ABC Pilates Director

I am a classically trained Pilates instructor, and have been certified through the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA-CPT) since 2007. I am experienced in teaching all populations at all levels on both mat and equipment, and hold special certifications for pre-natal/post-partum, spinal conditions, and post-operative, restorative, breast cancer training.

Over the past ten years, I was the Pilates coordinator at the Chicago-based Fitness Formula Clubs, (FFC), and taught at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Medical Center. When I owned a studio, Pilates Edge by Kelley, LLC, I became a corporate discount partner for the Avon Foundation for Women, and taught Pilates, pro-bono at Gilda’s Club Chicago.

Over the course of 2015 to early 2016, I was the lead Pilates instructor at Horizon Health, Hamilton, Bermuda, where I trained the Bermuda Police Service and specialized in corrective movement. I also established Horizon Health as a referral partner for breast cancer training with the Bermuda Cancer Care Center.

A Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA), 32 credits earned toward a Master’s Degree in Public Health (MPH) and college coursework completed in anatomy, physiology, bioenergy, and myofascial release supplement my “hands on” Pilates training.

When I am not teaching Pilates, I am coaching figure skating, modeling, and acting in commercials and independent films.

Tricia Lepore
ABC Pilates Instructor

Tricia Lepore is a certified Power Pilates and Stott instructor since 2011. Tricia danced with the National Ballet of Canada until the age of 23 when she had a career-ending injury. After her injury, she was able to continue her second passion; running.

She is grateful for her early introduction to Pilates with the company and her continued Pilates training, as it has helped her recover from numerous orthopedic surgeries and return to the pavement. Tricia is certified in mat and all apparatus.

Tricia was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, and earned a Bachelor of Commerce and an MBA from the University of Toronto.

Her ability to understand the body, combined with her sense of humor and extensive knowledge of Pilates makes her the incredible teacher that she is.
