Meet our Pilates Nerds

Founder of Pilates Nerd
Karen Ellis is the curator of Pilates Nerd.  She draws inspiration from nearly everything, especially people.  She has been so deeply impacted by her fellow colleagues and their enthusiasm for all things Pilates, that she felt it was a “movement” worthy of repute: hence Pilates Nerd™ was born!

Anne-Maree (aka AMJ) is the Chief Financial Officer of Pilates Nerd Down Under and PilatesITC. With a background in running hotels, Anne-Maree bought into the PilatesInt brand in 2004. Today, she is the proud owner of PilatesInt Pymble (set up alongside PilatesITC) and PilatesInt Hunters Hill. But get this - AMJ doesn’t teach Pilates! Instead, she gets her workouts in with some of the best in the business and then nerds back to her Pilates’ accounts. Yep, she is one clever Pilates Nerd!
