She holds numerous certifications in personal training, group exercise, cardio-kickboxing, cycling, arthritis foundation courses, TRX and Pilates. She holds a certification in Pilates mat and apparatus from the Physicalmind Institute.

In the last 10 years Sheri has really been focusing on Pilates as a total body functional conditioning format that combines stretching and strengthening to help you feel great. Pilates works on stabilizing you from the inside out. The stretching always feels great and the strengthening that comes from longer muscles is empowering. Pilates helps to balance the body that often gets misaligned from activities of daily living. While research is still ongoing on Pilates with low back issues, Sheri has found it to be most helpful to many individuals that she has worked with. Recently Sheri has added TRX to her Pilates practice as a further challenge.
