Hi! I’m Robin.

I provide workouts and resources for busy women who struggle to find time to exercise, desperately want to love their bodies again and are tired of starting and stopping exercise plans that don’t work for the long-haul.

The Balanced Life is a place to find quick, yet effective, online Pilates & barre workouts that can be done from home or on the road.

I’m also passionate about helping women transform their relationship with exercise and healthy living by choosing “grace over guilt” and finding a balance that feels like FREEDOM.

The Balanced Life serves tens of thousands of women all over the world.

I’ve partnered with major brands such as Athleta, Cameron Diaz’s blog ‘The Body Book’, Guiliana Rancic’s “Fab, Fit, Fun”, Self Magazine online, Business Insider, and many others to bring the positive message of The Balanced Life to women who are striving to improve their bodies and their lives.

When I’m not filming Pilates workouts, coaching online clients, or posting to Instagram, I can be found chasing my 5-year-old daughter, 2-year-old son, and newborn twins, going for runs with my husband, relaxing on the beach, and occasionally enjoying the perfectly-timed glass of Napa Chardonnay (nursing mamas you know what I mean).

If you want to know more, here are 4 things you probably don’t know about me…

  • I struggled with my body image and my relationship with food/exercise for a LONG time. When I finally found a way out of this vicious cycle I knew it was my mission to share it with the world.
  • I’m TERRIBLE at quoting movies. As in, I don’t know as single quote other than “I’ll be baaack” (I’ve never even seen that movie….Terminator right?) and if I try it’s always embarrassing but good entertainment for my husband.
  • I never re-watch my videos to edit awkward moments. I’d never hit “publish” if I tried to be perfect. So what you see is what you get. Awkward moments and all! 🙂

I’m so glad you found The Balanced Life.

Our message here is “grace over guilt”.

Believing the lie that beating yourself up or using guilt as a way to motivate yourself to eat right and exercise will NEVER work. It’s time to break free of that cycle and find an enjoyable way to take care of your body and mind once and for all.

This is an INCREDIBLE community of women. Our manifesto will tell you everything you need to know. I hope you dive in and join the fun!

You can work with me right now by starting my FREE Pilates for Beginners Series.  Also be sure to come say hello on Instagram & Facebook. 🙂
