Josh Smith, Co-Owner

Originally from Cleveland Ohio, Josh was extremely athletic, excelling in soccer, track & field, dance, and more... He has been living in Los Angeles since 1998, working as a professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer. Josh got into Pilates years ago when his wife, Emily, suggested that they do it as a workout together. Being an athlete, the benefits of a stronger core, increased flexibility, and the mind body connection that Pilates offered was the perfect match. Josh studied under mentors Kelli Altounian, Andromeda Stevens, and PSC's Teacher Training Program. Then down the road continued his education as a Pilates Sports Center Master Trainer. He enjoys helping clients feel the full body workout that Pilates can offer! Josh has worked with a wide range of clients, all ages, backgrounds, physical limitations, rehabilitation, and more...He has grown multiple Pilates programs, some geared towards male clients; squashing a stereotype that some think "Pilates isn't for men." In recent years he also been helping many individuals that participate in the ever-growing trend of Crossfit – some "Crossfitters" he trains are even in the competitive categories. So don't be fooled, anyone and everyone can grow, and benefit from Pilates training, seeing improvements in all areas of your life! As a Pilates Sports Center Master Trainer he shares is passion by training others to teach Pilates through the PSC Teacher Training Program. Creating workshops, DVDs, and promoting education is also a focus in his career.

Hardcore Pilates LA is a dream come true! Connecting with individuals, promoting health and fitness, and sharing his love and knowledge of Pilates helps him thrive! "You are only as young as your spine," says Joseph Pilates, and Josh agrees!
