About the Founder:
Enja Schenck wholeheartedly believes in the importance of resistance training for health and well being, and one of her primary missions is to educate about its scientifically demonstrated benefits, particularly for older adults. Enja's training is based on athletic principles, and one of her specialties is to adapt these principles to the capabilities of each individual.
In addition to being a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, Enja is also a Classical Pilates Teacher and Teacher Educator. She has earned several specializations, such as working with movement impaired clients and the rehabilitation of many types of spinal conditions. She teaches workshops at Pilates conferences and fitness industry summits, nationally and internationally.
Enja completed her M.S. in Exercise Science in 2016 with an emphasis in biomechanics and biomechanical research. She authored several biomechanical review papers, one of which she presented at the 16th annual conference of the Pilates Method Alliance 2016.
From 2015-16, Enja served as kinematics expert and co-author for several studies by NYU School of Medicine's Cognitive Neurophysiology Lab (Automated Tracking and Quantification of Autistic Behavioral Symptoms Using Microsoft Kinect).
Enja's passion for scientific research and Pilates led her to the creation of www.pilatesscience.org, a platform dedicated to showcase the latest scientific Pilates research.
In August 2018, Enja joined the Exercise Science faculty at Lehman College as a lecturer, honored to pass on her knowledge about exercise at an academic level.
