Thomas Kendall

Pilates Switzerland

My name is Thomas Kendall and I am from California, USA. I trained in both classical and contemporary dance before continuing my education in Pilates. I have had the opportunity to dance professionally with Ballett Zürich and Scottish Ballet, where I performed in a wide number of productions and worked with numerous choreographers. My passion for helping people attain controlled and graceful movement inspired me to move into the field of Pilates and fitness. I currently teach Pilates (mat & machines), ballet, aerial yoga/Pilates, and barre fitness.

What drives you? 

I strive to teach fun and rewarding classes through the use of graceful and controlled movement. I hope to share with my clients the beauty and flow of exercise that I practiced as a dancer.

What’s next in training? 

There is always something new to learn! I believe we never stop being a student in the fitness industry. Expanding my knowledge of movement is a lifelong pursuit.

What makes you happy?

Helping other people achieve their goals, whatever they might be. Seeing my clients happy makes me happy!

How do you create balance in your life? 

I try to stay in the present moment as much as possible. Too much stress can come from dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

What’s one piece of kit you could not live without?

My Casall ECO glass water bottle! Staying hydrated is key, no matter what you are doing.

What are your goals for the future? 

Growing as a trainer and teacher. Exploring new ways to challenge my body and mind through fitness.

Who inspires you and why?

I am inspired by all the teachers/trainers that I meet in the industry. Every teacher has their own style and personality which makes their class unique. Taking classes from other trainers allows me to gain new insight into my own teaching methods.
