b.Pilates & Fitness, Owner
Melissa Nagai began her career in Fitness in the early 1990’s, teaching high energy aerobics, weight training, and spin classes for many years before she discovered Pilates. She credits the study and practice of Pilates for changing the way she personally approached fitness, as well as how she trains her clients.
She believes that it’s important to find balance in your fitness routine, and her ongoing education speaks to that passion. She holds multiple certifications as a Pilates Teacher, Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and is trained in Kettlebell and Ultimate Sandbag practices.
A Home Studio owner since 2015, Melissa loves to help athletes at all levels discover how Pilates and strength training can keep them excelling at their sport longer, and better than ever. In addition to her studio, Melissa has an Online Studio/App, and runs a successful Pilates for Men program. She loves it when men finally cave to trying Pilates and how quickly they feel the benefits. They quickly become committed and consistent with their Pilates practice.
Fun facts: Melissa has three daughters, and has been married for 24 years. She previously worked as an interior designer, hates folding clothes, and will always choose tea over coffee.
