As a long-time, avid volleyball player Meagan Sayers was intrigued with the way her body performed under certain circumstances and how her daily nutrition was a major component of body awareness and performance. Pilates seemed a natural next step for her, so in 2006 Meagan embarked on a one-year intensive Pilates training and study of the human anatomy through the Pilates Institute of Southern California. After graduating, she decided to make the Pilates Institute her home, and she’s now been working in this industry for six years. The Pilates Institute offers private and group lessons, along with a teacher certification program. Meagan creates individual programs that meet clients’ personal goals and needs. She is certified in reformer, chair, Cadillac and mat Pilates.

What’s most rewarding about what you do?

“The most rewarding thing about what I do is seeing my clients transform. I get to see them lose weight, gain strength, come back from injuries, build confidence and have the energy to be the best they can for themselves and their families. I love what I do!”

Who is your typical client? 

“Someone who wants to build strength, stretch, gain body awareness and lose weight while having fun!”

What will new clients like about your uniqueapproach to fitness?

“I’m a good listener. I don’t stray from the goal. We have fun, we work hard and try different things. My clients leave feeling good about themselves because we are accomplishing their physical goals.”

What is the biggest benefit that your clients gain from seeing you for their health and fitness needs? 

“I teach my clients to keep moving, try different things, take risks, have fun and to find balance in their everyday life. My goal is to teach someone how to move with body awareness while building strength and integrity.”

How do you maintain your own health and fitness?

“I’m a fan of simplicity and being well-rounded in your everyday life. I stay active during the week, eat well and then treat myself on weekends. I love staying connected to my passions—long hikes, playing volleyball, Pilates and most of all my son and husband. They both make sure I don’t lose my sense of humor and are always keeping me on my toes.”
