Marian Lally, the Programming and Pilates Director at Rock Creek Sports Club, has more than 25 years of experience in the industry. She holds a comprehensive Pilates certification (Reformer/Tower/Chair/Barrel/Mat) with Balanced Body, group exercise through the American Council of Exercise (ACE), and personal training through ACE. She is also a Continuing Education provider for Balanced Athlete. A former dancer, Marian traded in her dance shoes for a pair of sneakers in 1992 and became a group exercise instructor, and eventually a certified personal trainer in 2000. The latest part of her fitness journey includes becoming certified to teach Pilates Mat and Balanced Athlete. Pilates and BA are natural extensions of Marian’s philosophy of functional fitness, and both are invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, good posture and optimal health. Teaching clients how they can be active for a lifetime, even through injuries, aches and pains, illness, or life’s set backs is a rewarding part of my client relationship.
Marian also has a confession. She is a former sugar and bread junkie! Making changes to a diet that reduces inflammation and cures disease has increased my quality of life. If I can refrain from processed foods and sugar, and get about 15% of my diet from animal products, anybody can.
