LABL Moves: Pilates with Margaret Nark

LABL Moves: Pilates with Margaret Nark

In case you haven’t seen sweat-filled Instagram videos of the LABL community working out to heavy beats with some of the best fitness instructors in the 757, let us introduce you to LABL Moves: Sweat + Sculpt. LABL founder Lindsay Bangel began this movement event series highlighting local fitness gurus in celebration of our ability to move together, healthier and stronger as a collective! Chris Stover kicked off LABL Moves with a killer cardio dance class followed by Jenna Epperly’s High Intensity Interval Training bootcamp featuring body-weight and booty band burn-out exercises.

 

Pilates, you’re up next! Our March 14th event at 9 AM, LABL Moves: Pilates will be led by Stott Pilates certified instructor at Pilates-4-Virgina Beach, Margaret Nark. Get to know your instructor before you work it out on the mat.

 

LABL: What made you want to start your business?

Margaret: I had been working as a Financial Analyst for over 20 years as a government contractor and knew I needed a change. Teaching fitness classes had always been my passion so I took the chance and I haven’t looked back.

LABL: What brought you to Virginia Beach/this area?

Margaret: My father came here after he joined the Navy and my mother followed friends here to teach in Virginia Beach. I was born at Virginia Beach General and I only left the area to attend UVA.

LABL: What does a typical day look like for you between clients, classes, etc.?

Margaret: I typically teach classes between 6:30am and 3:00pm. I try to get in one movement class (Barre, Mat Pilates or TRX) each day in between training private clients.

LABL: What other types of physical activities do you do/how do you crosstrain?

Margaret: I try each day to get on the Pilates equipment, work on the TRX Suspension System or take a walk to cross train. I also teach Silver Sneakers classes at Bayside Recreation Center for my young clients that are 65 years and older. They are an amazing group!

LABL: What’s your favorite brand to wear when working out?

Margaret: I really like Terez. The items I have from them are so soft!

LABL: What's your favorite pilates move?

Margaret: The Snake on the Reformer

LABL: What's your favorite energizing snack?

Margaret: I am not sure you would call it a snack but the Volcanic Roast from Bad Ass Coffee with heavy cream steamed. It is great after a long day of teaching!

LABL: What are your go-to spots in Virginia Beach? 

Margaret: Bad Ass Coffee and Famous Uncle Al’s on Shore Drive (I know it is a hot dog joint but we love seeing Al every Saturday).

LABL: What's the most rewarding part of your job?

Margaret: Seeing not only the physical changes in clients but the mental changes as well.

LABL: What's one question you're always asked as a fitness instructor?

Margaret: Is teaching as much fun and rewarding as it appears?  - Yes!

LABL: Where can our LABL community find you? (Website link, Instagram link, Facebook link, Do you offer classes on ClassPass, etc.)

Margaret: Pilates-4.com, @MargaretNarkPilates, you can also find Pilates-4-VB classes on ClassPass!
