My Education, Training & Experience

Cheryl Turgeon

Pilates & Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer, Reiki Practitioner, Thai Yoga Bodywork Practitioner, Aesthetician 

I have been involved in fitness training for over 20 years. I have a Master of Education: health promotion degree from Plymouth State College and have completed STOTT PILATES® training programs

Before moving back to the area I was the director of the North Conway Athletic Club in New Hampshire.

I teach several group fitness classes per week at my studio and at corporate locations. I also work one on one with many clients at my studio. My training clients range across all ages and abilities.

I have extensive experience in designing programs for people involved in injury recovery (rehabilitation) and back issues. I often consult with physical therapists and other members of the health-care team in designing and personalizing programs.  Trained in cognitive fitness and parkinsons exercise protocols.

As an outdoor sports enthusiast and road bicyclist, I understand the importance of balancing all aspects of the wellness dimensions to achieve maximum performance in reaching my goals. I am a quoted expert on Weight Watchers.com & in Better Homes & Gardens.
