Steven Burnes was born in Sydney, Australia and holds a Bachelor’s in Music Education from the University of New South Wales (Aust) and a Masters in Music Performance from the University of Surrey (U.K.). He has been a performer and educator since 1984, teaching music at both the high school and college level and is currently the Resident Conductor of the Florida Youth Orchestra. He began his fitness career in 1996 working part time as a personal trainer and spinning instructor certified by ACE, AFAA and Mad Dogg Athletics.
Steven was first introduced to Pilates in 1998 at a fitness conference and was both humbled and intrigued. The only man in a room full of women, he found himself sweating profusely and frustrated, trying to ‘muscle through’ the workout while the rest of the participants seemed to float effortlessly from one exercise to the next. Determined to learn their ‘secret’ he signed up for a mat certification workshop and was instantly hooked on the Method. He went on to complete his comprehensive certification through the Peak Pilate System and is a Pilates Method Alliance - Certified Pilates Teacher. In 2009 Steven became the first male Master Instructor for Peak Pilates in North America.
As a Peak Pilates Master Instructor, Steven has been able to combine his passion for Pilates and education, training instructors and presenting at fitness conferences around the country. In 2008 he opened his own studio, Aussie Fitness Pilates and Spinning in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The studio is a licensed Peak Pilates Education Center offering comprehensive instructor certification and continuing education workshops.
