"The teachers....everyone is very supportive and concerned about proper form. Teachers create a caring, friendly, and enthusiastic environment."
No alarm clock needed, my passions awake me.

Focus, Energize and Smile
“I believe that everyone is on their own personal journey of physical fitness; some find it early in life and others later. Once the journey begins, it never ends and as an instructor I am dedicated to safely help my clients realize their personal fitness goals. Focus, energize and smile, you can do it!” Christine is a Mother of 3, who likes to sing and dance and play table tennis with her husband.
Any goal is achievable with a smile and belief in yourself
Sphericality instructor Kelly Cresta's energy and enthusiasm are infectious. She bounces around the room as if she's walking on air, motivating each and every one of us. In this Instructor Spotlight, I asked Kelly about her background, her love of fitness, and what's in her refrigerator.
Whether she's teaching Pilates, TRX or Barre class, Kelly Cresta's energy and enthusiasm are infectious. She bounces around the room as if she's walking on air, motivating each and every one of us. And don't you feel a little thrill when she checks on your form and sings "Yaaasssss!"? I asked Kelly about her background, her love of fitness, and what's in her refrigerator. Kelly grew up in Bridgewater, NJ with her parents and twin older brothers. She was always active growing up, dancing since she was four years old and playing field hockey and lacrosse in school. She attended Muhlenberg College, where she began getting more interested in fitness and nutrition. She double-majored in Media Communications and Dance.
She first fell in love with Pilates when she took a semester class in college. During that same semester, she tore her left ACL (for the 2nd time). "During my rehab I started to get obsessed with proper form during exercise," says Kelly. "I love being able to share my knowledge and teach people how to make themselves healthier and more fit in a safe way and in a safe environment. In addition to teaching Pilates after college, Kelly was a professional dancer, working all over the world from the Tropicana in Atlantic City to internationally as a dancer/magician's assistant. And now she's found her home at Sphericality. She currently lives in Stewartsville, NJ with her husband Phil and their Yorkie named Bella. "She is the greatest dog and best friend on the planet," says Kelly. "I'm sickly obsessed with her!"
She also tells me that everyone in her family is a huge Disney fan. Who else thinks Kelly would be an amazing fitness Disney Princess. I asked Kelly what she loves most about Sphericality. "I love the community!" she says. "It is a wonderful group of women who are determined to better themselves and support the women around them - and that is such a rare and beautiful thing. Nothing makes me happier than to see someone become stronger week after week not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. No matter what is going on in my life, when I step into the studio everything melts away and I get to help people become healthier. There is no greater gift."
Then I asked her some fun, and some silly, questions...
What are five things you always have in your fridge?
"Vanilla yogurt, coffee creamer (currently pumpkin spice), broccoli, arugula, and carrots."
Complete the sentence: I can’t live without…
What is your least favorite household chore?
"Cleaning the bathrooms."
Do you have a favorite quote?
"Everything happens for a reason."
What is your favorite class to teach?
"I seriously love every class! That is what makes working at Sphericality great. I don't think I could pick just one. I've been teaching the Pilates / Yogalates format for the longest so that will always be close to my heart, but I love the strength and grace of Barre and Barre Bootcamp, the fusion of so many deciplines that is Tap n' PowHER, and the sheer awesomeness (there really is no better word) of TRX."
What's your #1 fitness tip?
"Be confident and consistent! When you are in class, really be present. Lengthen your arms to their full capacity, squeeze those muscles as hard as you can! Never leave a workout feeling like you could have done more, leave it all in the studio. From there if you can be consistent and make working out an obsession (in the best sense of the word) you will be unstoppable!"
May all beings everywhere be happy and free

“My favorite aspect of teaching is inspiring and assisting others in reaching their goals.

Candice is a 200 hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) from the Sphericality Laughing Buddha Yoga School with accreditation through Yoga Alliance. Candice has been teaching yoga since 2014 and an active yoga practitioner for over 15 years. Her yoga journey began first as a means of stress management, but quickly transformed into a passion, providing a deep source of balance and a guiding life philosophy. Candice loves sharing the gift of yoga and is continually inspired by students as they awaken and transform their body and mind through this ancient practice. As a Doctor of Pharmacy by profession, Candice has a special interest in yoga as “medicine”- therapy for the body, mind and spirit- a benefit she has realized in her own life. Candice also incorporates pranayama (yogic breathing) into her classes, so the breath is used to guide the physical poses. Her goal is to empower students to honor their body where it is today and to follow it as their own personal teacher and guide.
