Originally from Toronto, Canada, Arden is an Internationally Certified Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor and a Medical Fitness Trainer. She has worked in the fitness industry for 8 years in Rotterdam and has built her reputation at multiple gyms and fitness centers across the city in addition to her personal training clientele. Arden has taught Pilates for 8 years and has used her decade of dance experience to create her own contemporary approach to the traditional Joseph Pilates Technique. She uses both traditional and non-traditional exercises in private and group sessions and always seeks to educate clients on how to prevent injury/pain, why strength is so important to their bodies, and to improve their physicality from the deep inside muscles to the big outside muscles. Whether it is personal training or group lessons, Arden’s sessions incorporate a holistic view of the body and aim to strengthen the client/athlete through functional training and movement. Arden believes in empowering her clients through knowledge so they understand the principles of why they are doing the exercises, not just the how.
