About Nina

Before her introduction to Pilates, Nina designed costumes and scenery for theatre, film and television. After the birth of her 3rd child and a back injury, she began studying Pilates rehabilitatively as a client of Melissa Kerber. The process of finding her core stability and overcoming her injury was an affirming experience.

About Drea

I began my studies in ballet at the age of nine on my home island of Guam. From there, I continued my dance education here in the Seattle area. I loved to dance but with my continued studies and instruction of ballet and my many years of early childhood education I began to develop lower back and hip pain, until I discovered Pilates in 2012. I fell in love with the process, but most importantly, my body benefited greatly from it. In 2013, I embarked on a journey of becoming a Pilates Instructor at the Bodycenter Studio in Fremont. First, my intention was to solely become Mat certified, but my passion for Pilates continued to motivate me to become a certified Reformer, Cadillac, Stability Chair, Barrels and ISP instructor. Then, in the Winter of 2016 I became a certified STOTT PILATES® instructor. I have a great appreciation of the diversity of strength and support each form of Pilates can provide.

I really enjoy working with clients of all ages. It brings great joy to have the opportunity to support and help individuals achieve their fitness and health goals.
When I am not teaching I enjoy family time with my husband, two children and our two dogs.

Kailey Campbell, PT

About Kailey

Kailey Campbell earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Puget Sound in 2014. She was drawn to Physical Therapy with her own personal experience as a collegiate cross country and track & field athlete at the University of Washington 2006-2010. In her time at the University of Washington she earned All American Honors and was a member of the 2008 NCAA Division I Cross Country National Championship team. Achievements, however, did not come without injuries, and it was these experiences that introduced Kailey to the field of Physical Therapy. Pursuing Physical Therapy as a profession offered her the opportunity to connect her passions of exercise, optimal functional movement patterns, and helping others discover their own personal wellness.

Kailey, drawn to orthopedics, became a board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2017. She has pursued further manual therapy certifications programs; the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) and is a Graston Technique Specialist (GTS). Adding these certifications and courses provide a foundation for critical diagnosis and manual therapy treatments.

Kailey was first exposed to Pilates as a stabilization regime for her own running - finding that she was more aware of core stability, posture, and form. This had previously been missing from her own collegiate running career and something she strongly recommends for athletes of all sports whether their demands are power, endurance, repetitive or unilateral in nature.
Kailey pursued and completed her level 1 STOTT Pilates certification in 2018, and it quickly became a crucial element to all her Physical Therapy treatments. She strongly feels that people get better when their bodies move, and, better yet, when they learn to move independently with stable and fluid control. Kailey founded Fluid Motion Physical Therapy and Pilates in 2020, with the goals to provide Pilates as an adjunct to traditional Physical Therapy and help others find a lasting connection to Pilates and their body.

At Bodycenter Studios, Kailey combines one on one Physical Therapy services with Pilates instruction. She is eager to work with you to develop a personalized plan for injury recovery, injury prevention, or long-term health/strength management. She’s hoping you find a passion for Pilates whether it’s your main form of physical activity or improves stability, mobility, and awareness for you to do what you love the most – Pilates truly is for everyone.

Initial consult appointments require completion of intake form. Appointments are one hour in length and billed at the time of service at 100 dollars per hour. Kailey accepts cash, check, credit cards, and some HSA/FSA cards. Clients will be provided with appropriate Physical Therapy clinical notes to independently submit to insurance providers. Please check with your insurance carrier to determine individual policies for reimbursement as this varies from plan to plan.
