Rebecca Pierskalla Instructor
Rebecca Pierskalla: “My fitness journey began in 1998 when asked to become a group exercise instructor. When I said ‘yes’, I didn’t realize the life-changing experience that was ahead of me. Looking back, it was a great decision and one that I have never regretted. I hold certifications in group ex through ACE, personal training through NETA, health coaching through ACE, corrective exercise through NASM, and my 200 hour YT through YogaFit. I am currenlty working on my 500 hour Holy Yoga Masters certification. I love to help people become healthy and more aware of their bodies. Helping clients lose weight, train for a race, or simply maintain a level of fitness is very rewarding. Teaching the personal training course through W.I.T.S. has allowed me to help others who want to begin their journey in this industry. W.I.T.S. Faculty Certificate Holder!”
