Vanessa Kelly is a Pilates Master Trainer, Pilates Method Alliance Certified Pilates Instructor and Posture Alignment Specialist through Egoscue University.


Vanessa first learned the Body Arts and Science International (BASI) method of Pilates in 2009.  She began her Pilates career as an independent contractor in 2009 at Core Fit, a private Pilates studio in Las Vegas.


During her time there, Vanessa discovered her passion for rehabilitation and posture analysis through corrective exercises.  She attended her first workshop, in San Francisco, on how Pilates can help correct scoliosis and decrease chronic back pain.  Her education continued with Vanessa attending The Pilates on Tour Rehabilitation conferences held in Phoenix.


In 2011, Vanessa accepted a position as Lead Pilates Instructor at Life Time Athletic Summerlin, where she quickly proved that her dedication to her craft and her attention to detail with clients was extremely valuable to the company.  After learning and assisting in the Pilates program, Vanessa eventually accepted a promotion as the Pilates Coordinator at Life Time Fitness Tempe in April 2013.


The dedication and desire to help people through Pilates along with Postural Therapy led to the grand opening of Function Pilates in 2014.  Vanessa is the owner and founder of Function Pilates located in Tempe, Arizona.  Since opening, she has had the pleasure of working with the Los Angeles Angels minor league in Postural Therapy, and one-on-one Pilates sessions with LPGA, Julie Yang.


“Function Pilates is a place designed for folks to come in to experience healthy, functional movement while enjoying the benefits of Pilates in a traditional way.”
