Paul Wheeler brings a varied educational background to his Pilates and fitness teaching. He studied and received his certification in Classical Pilates in 2010. That same year, he became a certified Licensed Massage Therapist from the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage. He then went for additional education for Orthopedic Massage and Myofascial Release. Paul believes that teaching Pilates and practicing as a Massage Therapist tie into his commitment for health and wellness as both are preventive and healing arts.

Paul not only brings a depth of knowledge and expertise to his work with clients, but also a passion and motivation to help them achieve their health goals. Among the many benefits his clients find are increased core strength, improved posture, greater flexibility and decreased risk for injury.
