Karen Reynolds

485704-KarenGoodHeadshotKaren, RDN, LD, CPT is a Licensed Integrative Nutritionist, Certified Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer with over 30 years experience in nutrition and wellness. She has a passion for natural health and whole food and has a keen interest in the mind-body connection and how it relates to your overall health.

Karen's journey into fitness began at age five in Vermont with skiing and snowboarding. She spent her summers as a child in Cape Cod, where she learned to sail, swim and discovered the endorphin rush of running. She still participates in races for fun and fund raising purposes today.

Karen teaches her clients to find their true balance in life through nourishing food and exercise. She is a NYC classically trained Pilates Instructor whose approach to wellness is to nourish yourself with real food and mind-body modalities. As an integrative nutritionist, she looks at the “whole you” and helps you to make lifestyle changes that help you regain or optimize your health.

Karen worked as a dental assistant in her father's practice starting at age 14. She saw the effects first-hand of an unhealthy diet on the teeth and gums and, since she always enjoyed helping others, decided to become a registered dietician. In 1982, she earned her BS in Nutrition from Rochester Institute of Technology, one of the few schools in the country that offered a didactic /clinical learning experience within the 4 years.

Karen found classical Pilates in 2000, seeking relief from injuries and chronic pain compounded from years of rigorous athleticism and a fall on the ice. The relief of pain and rapid increase of her own flexibility led her to become certified through Power Pilates® in 2004. She has since continued her studies in fitness to become an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and an NASM Senior Fitness Specialist in 2015. Karen teaches her clients to incorporate Pilates and good nutrition in to their everday lives. Her passion for wellness transpires into coaching, empowering and inspiring people to achieve the most optimal results through fitness and healthy diet.
