Leading Ladies 2019: Melissa Siple

Pilates Instructor & Gym Owner, Benefitness


All gain with no pain? It’s possible with STOTT Pilates. The precise strengthening and stretching method developed a century ago by Joseph Pilates has had immense benefits for those who practice it, but the system was based on old knowledge about the body and its functions. That’s why Melissa Siple, owner of BENEFITNESS, is a STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer, teaching the method to future trainers at her acclaimed studio and traveling globally to train future instructors. “STOTT is the contemporary approach. As science has evolved, our method has evolved to better fit clients’ needs,” Melissa says. She’s excited about her brand new Intensive Mat Plus teacher training session, adding “If you‘ve ever wanted to become a Pilates instructor, this is the class for you!”

Benefitness offers daily Group Mat and Reformer classes, as well as customized one- on-one sessions. “‘One size doesn’t fit all’ when it comes to personal training. Inspired, creative instruction is the best way to reach personal goals and overcome challenges.” The studio also offers TRX, Halo and Barre sessions. Melissa prides herself on having “the best of the best” trainers working for her – but that doesn’t mean she only trains top athletes. “People are looking to be fit and functional longer. We work with every body type and age to help you be your best self.”
