Pilates Instructor in Southlake, Texas – Heather Atendido, Salesperson Turned Fitness Inspiration

HeatherHi, I’m Heather, a Premier Pilates instructor here at our Southlake, Texas studio. My career began on the opposite side of the spectrum from Pilates, but I’m so glad I discovered this path!

Originally, I received a BA in Business Administration from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. Interested in working my way up the company ladder, I landed a job at a pharmaceutical firm, and became a successful salesperson. However, plans changed when I had my twin daughters, and I traded in my sales card to become a stay-at-home mom. Family’s important to me, and I cherished those years.

But I believe that a person evolves as they age. In 2010, after my girls were older, I stumbled across Pilates. Looking for a way to tone up during motherhood, I realized I had a passion in this benefit-rich exercise method. Two short years after I started, I began training as a Pilates instructor under Karen Sanzo at Pilates Unlimited. Finally, I made the move to join Wendy here at Premier Pilates.

Of all the perks of being an instructor, I most enjoy seeing people fall in love with Pilates and begin their journey towards incredible health. I’m excited to help you start your own path.
