For the husband-and-wife team Keith Taylor and Erin Sullivan-Taylor, working out isn't just for looking good in a swimsuit. The high stresses of Keith's former role working with emotionally and mentally impaired children triggered his rapid weight gain, leaving him weighing more than 400 pounds. Separately, Erin struggled with depression while dealing with the loss of her late husband. At different times and for different reasons, they both turned to exercise to overcome their obstacles—Keith shedding more than 200 pounds through spinning, and Erin noticing significant changes in her mood and attitude through yoga and Pilates.
When they met, they inspired each other to fully dedicate themselves to their shared passion of helping others lead healthy and stress-free lives, opening their own studio, Fusion Pilates and Yoga. With the aid of a team of Pilates and yoga instructors, the pair offers more than 50 classes each week—including yoga, Pilates, and spinning—to help students of all experience levels achieve their health and wellness goals in a judgment-free atmosphere.
