A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US...
Donna, Kathy, and Amy have been friends for several years after taking fitness classes at another studio in Bloomington and becoming certified instructors. When that business closed they decided to find another space and become independent contractors teaching Mat Pilates classes and Tabata Bootcamp. In June 2016 they opened The Well and Fit Studio at 209 S. Prospect Rd. where Dr. Janine Maere, MD practices. Amy has since moved to Florida where she is pursuing more fitness education. Other services in the building besides those of The Well and Fit Studio and Dr. Maere are Martial Arts instruction, Massage Therapy, Vibration Therapy, and Counseling.
