Fran McDonald

Poipu, HI 96756

Fran has been teaching fitness classes for over 25 years, in three states and in Japan. Her training and instruction has evolved from the early years of Jazzercise and aerobics, through step classes to circuit strength training and stretch classes. However, once “finding” Pilates and discovering the benefits of this type of exercise in 2000, Fran decided to make this her primary focus.
Fran was certified in matwork instruction by the Pilates PhysicalMind Institute in Tampa, Florida in 2001. After teaching for a couple of years in Tampa, Fran brought her knowledge of Pilates to Kauai and has taught classes at Kauai Athletic Club, PMRF’s MWR facility, the Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club as well as various private classes around the island.
Fran’s Pilates classes focus on teaching the Fundamentals of Pilates upon which all other mat and equipment exercises are based and build from there. Her classes also utilize The Method® Pilates which follows the exercises as originally developed by Joseph Pilates over 70 years ago.
