  • Fitness Movement
    Ronda Arndorfer began exploring Pilates in 2001 at the age of 40, when she was trying to recover from the multiple running injuries she incurred while training for her first marathon. Her rehabilitation was so successful that she decided to learn how to share the experience with others. She became a certified Pilates instructor and—after opening a studio out of her home—eventually founded The Movement Center, a place where students can restore both body and mind in a positive, lighthearted environment. Arndorfer continues to attend workshops and teacher trainings with master instructors throughout the country. This exposure has allowed the Movement Center to offer multiple Teacher Training Programs ranging from Pilates, yoga, and barre to the benefit of her own staff members as well as the local movement community. Arndorfer's passion for movement has paid off: the center has been featured in numerous television and magazine media outlets and was voted the Best Pilates Studio by CityVoter in 2009, 2010, and 2011. They have also garnered praise from a slew of local media outlets. In addition to traditional yoga and Pilates classes, the crew offers innovative and challenging techniques such as aerial yoga—in which students "float" on a trapeze-like swing—and yoga performed on open water using a standup paddleboard. Barre classes require students to hold onto a ballet barre or the outstretched arm of a handsome stranger while strengthening muscles with a mix of yoga- and Pilates-inspired moves. The center's team includes massage therapists, a nutritionist, and a physical therapist and certified Feldenkrais practitioner who continue the healing that begins within each class. They also offer childcare for guests' convenience.

  • Val'Z Fit
    As a child growing up in Argentina, Vale was often found leaping into the air and twirling around in circles. She loved to dance, but by the time she started college, her passion was pushed aside to study veterinary medicine. Soon, she started to gain weight and it left her unhappy and unfulfilled. A trip to the United States relit the dancing flame inside her, and soon she was taking hours of jazz, contemporary, and modern dance classes every day. When she stumbled upon Zumba, a Latin-inspired fitness program that tugged at her Argentinian heart, she was hooked. Now healthy and happy?thanks to Zumba?Vale is on a journey to help others achieve the same results. As a licensed Zumba instructor, she leads students through easy-to-follow dance routines set to high-energy beats. Her workouts, akin to a dance party, work to burn calories and tone bodies. She is also licensed in Zumba Kids and Aqua Zumba, which consists of holding a Zumba class in a pool or while on a Slip'N Slide.
