Owner, Classical Pilates Teacher, Suspension Therapies, Corrective Exercise Specialist, and Movement Culture Proponent
Joel Crosby has 30 years' experience as fitness trainer and feels strongly that traditional fitness modalities have failed people. He has been teaching Pilates for 22 years and is passionate about re-educating as many people as possible about how to move and exercise correctly. In an enjoyable way, he precisely teaches how to move dynamically and powerfully without injury. Joel teaches Pilates internationally and works with a broad spectrum of people, ranging from professional athletes to people with special needs. He finds consistently that the original Pilates method helps them all to achieve greater functionality and increased power output. It is this love of helping people and inspiring them to achieve more with their bodies that makes going to work every day at the Vitality Method studio a joy. Using the original teachings of Joseph Pilates, he teaches techniques that allow individuals to stretch and strengthen in a way that is the most natural and beneficial for muscles and tendons, while developing fluid and balanced muscle usage. His overall focus is on increasing and maintaining flexibility, balance, lean body mass, and cardiovascular efficiency; in turn counteracting the effects of the aging process on these four areas.Joel runs an internationally recognized Pilates teacher training program, and hosts continuing education workshops at the Vitality Method Studio.
Ruby & Joel Crosby have 4 beautiful and active children.
