Michele Galay

Client Services

“As an old soul with a deep-rooted passion for music and Southern culture, I began working in dive bars and music venues, the first chance I could get. When a co-worker took me to my first Pilates class, I walked out feeling taller and more confident than ever – ordinary movements feeling somehow easier. After years of bartending had taken its toll on my body, Pilates quickly became the best part of my day. Searching for a healthier career alternative, I began the teacher- training program here at Retrofit. This led me to a position in Client Services where I have been able to utilize my customer service background in a much more sunny, positive space. As I continue my teacher training, and occasional shifts behind the bar, Retrofit has become my escape, allowing me to engage with clients in a calm, uplifting environment and submerge myself in the world of Pilates.”
