I have been in fitness all my life. As an athlete, track, softball, soccer and basketball were the main sports I played but, was always on the go looking for activities to do. I have a BSBA with a specialization in Exercise Science from UNO. After a car accident in which I hit the windshield, I was introduced to the Mind-Body and Healing worlds to try to reduce chronic pain and other issues. Respecting the body, focusing the mind and enhancing one’s well being as opposed to beating the body up and feeling the burn has been an integral part of recovery. Yoga, Reiki (energy work), Tai Chi, Pilates and Belly Dance, along with other healing modalities, have all been helpful in finding “Center”, reducing pain and improving quality of life. Credentials include American College of Sports Medicine HFI (Health/Fitness Instructor), ACE Personal Trainer, ACE Group Fitness Instructor, Pilates Coach Mat and Reformer, Pilates Unlimited LLC Mat and Full Equipment, David Dorian’s Flow Motion (Tai Chi; 24 movement style), Hatha Yoga, YogaFit, Kickboxing, STOTT PILATES ® Workshops and other Group Fitness Specialty Trainings and are amongst the many trainings through the years that I have studied. Many years and hours of training have lead to an eclectic style of teaching. I am the Owner and Director of Vital Lifestyles, Inc. & Legacy Pilates, Yoga & More. Experience includes Corporate Fitness, Fitness Center Management, Personal Training and health programs since 1988. Legacy Pilates, Yoga & More is one more step in the direction of helping people take care of themselves and being responsible for your own health. Teaching more than just fitness and exercise, it is important to teach clients about other wellness and natural health care options that can enhance health & lifestyle! I love to incorporate east and west philosophies and help one understand how they compliment each other and can help one understand the Self better! Cindy has three kids and 5 grandkids. Watch and learn from your children. They can teach us a lot about freedom, pure love and being true to oneself. Teach your children young to follow their hearts, listen to the body and respect themselves and this world will be such a better place!
