About the Founder:
Enja Schenck holds an M.S. degree in Exercise Science and is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS®). She particularly 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.
Enja is also a Classical Pilates Teacher and Teacher Educator, and 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. In November 2018, Enja was the principal representative for Classical Pilates at Physiopilates' 6th Annual conference in Salvador, Brazil, which was so successful that she has been re-invited to the 2019 conference.
Enja completed her M.S. in Exercise Science in 2016 with an emphasis in biomechanics and biomechanical research under Dr. Ben Johnson. She authored several biomechanical review papers, one of which she presented at the Research Forum of 2016's annual conference of the Pilates Method Alliance. 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 present the latest scientific Pilates research in an easily understandable manner.
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.
