Master Instructor and Studio Owner
When was the last time you walked into a fitness center, studio, or class and felt like your teacher was your best friend?
Someone who you can trust, look up to, and motivates you to do and be better...
That is exactly who Candace Bierly is to so many of her decade-long clients. This culinary-student-turned-fitness-specialist unexpectedly fell in love with Pilates after the birth of her second son by simply searching for an outlet to be active, fit, and healthy. And if you ask why she’s continued to grow her knowledge, skills, and expertise for all these years, she’ll tell you:
“I love personal training and the mystery in discovering what connects the dots in someone’s spirit, mind, and body.”
It’s pretty incredible what Candace has been able to accomplish over the 15+ years of her fitness-teaching career, from a degree in Exercise Science to her countless Fitness/Pilates certifications and extensive training. Not to mention being a Pilates instructor for over 15 years, and owning her own studio for 11 of those; her resume could go on and on.
A few years ago, Candace realized that more was expected of her and her studio as her business grew rapidly. Her close relationships with clients meant that when they were looking for guidance and tools beyond her classes, they came straight to her. At that point, Candace took on more personal responsibility in creating a line of quality wellness products. By meeting her own highest standards, Candace began the development of her highly demanded wellness line.
Candace is now ready to share her meticulously-developed products with the world-- largely in thanks to the support and dedication of her husband, who she credits as being her partner in this entire journey, along with their two handsome sons who are also very invested in the family business.
The family affair is what Candy says is her absolute favorite part of her “job”, and just one of the many, many reasons why she is so passionate about what she does.
