Founder, Donna Fisher

about meDonna has been teaching and training individuals in the health and fitness field since 1990. Donna has a BS in Exercise Physiology from the University of Florida and is certified in several different certifications including Romana Pilates, ACE, AFAA, & Biomechanics by the Cooper Aerobics Center, where she was the Private Pilates Director for ten years. Donna worked in Occupational Therapy specializing in pediatric therapy for five years before committing herself full time to fitness. She taught all over the world for ten years prior to having a family, presenting what she knows and loves to others. She feels there is a gap from the certification process to the teaching element and many teachers do not have access to quality continuing education.

Her direct approach to clients and students allows her to teach others gaining insight into the needs of each person and her dynamic personality keeps her in high demand. Following the birth of her two kids she no longer could travel and teach but still valued continuing education as the most valuable component in remaining current, marketable and educated. She began For Better Health as a resource for teachers to learn and grow in a community that fostered individual needs in an environment that was consistent in teaching the classical method of the original work taught by Joseph Pilates. She maintains a high standard for all teachers that she invites into the studio located in Dallas, Texas. Body Proof Studio is fully equipped with Gratz Equipment, spa like environment with hot tub, lockers and lounge area. The studio welcomes all teachers interested in learning more about Pilates, how to teach and the methodology behind Joe’s brilliant Contology!
