Amy Peters Director
Amy is the owner of the Pilates Center of Viera. She began teaching dance and aerobics when she was 14 years old and has always loved moving her body. A dance injury introduced her to Pilates. After art college, she delved deeper into the Pilates method and became obsessed. She jumped into a classical certification and has continued to learn as much as she can from as many different instructors and branches of Pilates that she can find. The studio is her pride and joy. PCoV was among the first to introduce TRX Suspension Training, HIIT , Barre and Pilates Circuit. She strives to stay on the cutting edge of fitness, with Pilates being the foundation of it all. A recent auto-immune diagnosis only reaffirmed how important it is to her to stay strong in body and mind. Her absolute favorite part of owning a studio is to see her clients achieve their fitness goals . Seeing them become stronger and more confident is truly rewarding. The sense of community and support at the studio is unique and makes her feel like a proud momma.The studio is a safe place for people of all ages, shapes and degrees of fitness to come together and celebrate the joy of movement. Sharing her passion has been a life long dream come true.
Patti has a Bachelors Degree in Business/Finance and began her career as a small business owner. Although fitness has always been a priority in her life, it became a necessity after a back injury in 2007. After many months of pain, without much relief, she was introduced to Pilates and it became her answer to gaining strength and healing. At the same time, she decided to take a break from the daily grind and enjoy her daughter's last two years of high school at home. When she became an empty nester, it was time for her to find her true passion and once again Pilates was the answer! She became a certified instructor at Pilates Center of Viera and has been an integral part of the PCoV team, since that time. Patti is also a Level II TRX Instructor and a proud POUND PRO! She is dedicated to sharing her experience with health and wellness with her clients. Patti is currently retired but pops into the studio whenever she can.

Over the years, Laura has set many fitness goals for herself and acheived every one of them. She enjoys all types of fitness and continues to challenge herself. On the weekend, you will likely find Laura in a Savage Race or Mud Run in the area. Although she works full-time during the day for AT&T, Laura became a certified TRX instructor and teaches evening classes. As you can see in her picture, she is always dedicated to getting her workout in .. she's pictured here with her TRX straps in Egypt!
