Cindy is a Senior Trainer and our Training Development Manager. She joined Studio 6 Fitness after teaching the Lagree method on the East coast for several years. A Pittsburgh native and former University of Maryland Division 1 swimmer, Cindy was looking for a way to stay in top shape post-college. After trying virtually every workout under the sun, she found Lagree Fitness and has been hooked on the Megaformer ever since. She has quickly become a client favorite and an amazing member of our Studio 6 Fitness family. Here's a little more about Cindy:
