Our Story

What started out as a seed in the imagination, has bloomed into a business which has reached beyond physical borders. Our journey has taken us from city to city, state to state, and even nation to nation. We have had the privilege and pleasure of working with the young and the old, athletes and novices, individuals and groups – each with different challenges and personal/professional goals.


Called to transform lives from the inside-out, Pilates By Design brings the benefits of Pilates to all who have a desire to live their life in health, strength and beauty. Our goal is to help you look, feel and perform your very best!


Stephanie Shipman (Hall )


Stephanie has always loved movement. As a dancer, she found Pilates not only increased her strength and flexibility, but in times of injury, became her roadmap to rehabilitation and recovery. Once Stephanie discovered what Pilates could do for her, she immediately knew she wanted to share this new found love with others. Her goal…to help others live their lives in health, strength and beauty.


Stephanie received her Mat certification through the Physical Mind Institute. Then, after several years of teaching, she went on to further her training and became fully certified through Power Pilates on all Pilates apparatus. She has had the privilege of working with people of all ages and ability levels. From well-trained dancers and athletes, to high school students, to stay-at-home moms and those recovering from injury...Stephanie has seen so many of her clients experience the lasting benefits of Pilates.
