'I started a business teaching Pilates via Skype. After running into some unforeseen road blocks, I did some some research online. I found Denise’s website and realized that she had already been doing this for some time and appeared to have a great business going. I decided to hire her as a business coach. She gave me very valuable insight and some great ideas that I have been implementing. Denise is an awesome coach and definitely helped take my business to the next level.'
- Karyn Duffy, Fit Reformed, Canada
"I had a great session with Denise! She was well prepared, answered all my questions and gave me a starting point for where to go in the beginning stages of launching my virtual business. I loved that she sent me a 3 month plan of action and many extra resources to bypass early mistakes including troubleshooting advice when working with clients. She checked in with me which made me accountable for action. Denise is grounded and real...I would highly recommend her!"
- Melanie McGray, The Nourished Body, Costa Rica
"I was barely familiar with Zoom, much less using it to teach clients online, when I took Denise's Zoom seminar, Go Live NOW (For Trainers): How To Create A Quality Online Session . It was exactly what I needed! Denise has years of experience teaching online and presented a clear outline of how to set up on an online fitness training presence. The material and resources she shared were extremely helpful and helped me hit the ground running. I appreciated that she shared the recorded seminar so I can view it again, when my brain wasn't exploding. Denise also offered a free follow up meeting the following week to see how we were doing and answer questions. Denise is professional and also very kind and friendly. I'm planning to hire her as a consultant once I'm a bit more established. Whether you have some experience training online or are a complete neophyte (like me), Denise can help you do what you do better so you don't have to reinvent the wheel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

Denise Posnak Gaffney has taught Pilates since 2001 and was one of the first Pilates instructors to bring live training online when she started MyBOD Wellness in 2012. She has developed her own proven method of instruction that replicates the same high quality as an in-studio session. Her clients often remark that they can't believe how much she can see through video and that her online sessions are more 'hands on' than studio classes they've attended. In addition to perfecting a technique for online teaching, she has years of experience with seamlessly troubleshooting tech issues during live sessions. She loves sharing her knowledge with other instructors who are enthusiastic about taking their profession online!
