Meet Shelley

Shelley Austen
Licensed Physical Therapist
​STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor

As a certified STOTT PILATES® Instructor, certified Fitness Instructor, and licensed physical therapist, she enjoys working individually with clients as they rehabilitate from illness or injury. Shelley has a passion for educating, instructing, and coaching others to achieve and maintain an active lifestyle. For her own personal wellness, she loves to run, hike, do Pilates and spend quality time with her family and friends.

Current Services
In late 2019 she transitioned to a Private Pilates studio still providing the same expertise and attention to detail now just in a more intimate environment.

Fulfilling a Passion and Reaching Goals!
The second part of her journey began when she was introduced to Pilates in 2006. Shelley found that Pilates helped her achieve greater body awareness and core strength. She knew this was something she wanted to share with others, so she trained and certified in STOTT PILATES® Mat and Reformer in 2007. She continued her education and achieved full certification on all Pilates’ equipment in 2014 and at that time was able to fulfill her dream of owning a Pilates studio which had great success from 2014-2019.

Early Career
The first part of her journey began after an injury in 1986, she received physical therapy support and it was that experience that piqued her interest to become a Physical Therapist. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Utah in 1996 and began her career as a physical therapist.
Her entrepreneurial spirit called her to open her own Physical Therapy company called Sage Physical Therapy in 2006. She operated this company offering home health services and managing Physical Therapist Assistants to provide support to individuals needing rehabilitation after an injury or illness.

Supporting your wellness has been part of Shelley’s life and prompted her to start teaching group fitness classes in 1985. Over the past 30+ years she has taught a wide variety of formats including Hi-Low Impact, Step, Body Pump, Spin and Pilates. She has continued to grow in her education and certifications as she has a commitment to providing her students with the best and most up-to-date methods and equipment for their physical wellness. The most recent training has been in TRX suspension training.
