Cheryl Costello

Having been a pharmacist for over 25 years, Cheryl has always had an interest in health and wellness. Her personal journey in fitness began when she started running and weight training while in college. To challenge herself, she competed in amateur bodybuilding contests and 5k’s. People in the gym began to ask her for help preparing for contests and that is when she realized her passion for personal training and in 2003, she began training clients at Gold’s Gym. Shortly thereafter, she began training at a private studio that had Pilates equipment in addition to a traditional weight training area. Having never heard of Pilates, she was curious and took classes and quickly became a “believer.” The mindful exercises were intense but also encouraged flexibility. She earned her Pilates mat certification through the PhysicalMind Institute and began teaching classes while also incorporating some movements in her weight training sessions. In 2007, a move to New England put her training career on hold, but now she cannot be happier to return to doing what she really loves – helping people feel better about themselves.
