Colleen Shaughnessy

Colleen attended the University of Michigan where she earned a degree in Dance and Movement Science. She is currently a professional dancer at NOMI Dance Company in Chicago as well as a STOTT Pilates instructor and ACE Certified Personal Trainer. Colleen has been teaching fitness, dance and Pilates for the past 9 years, and has been taught by some of the most well respected trainers in the industry.

She has spent her life in classical ballet and used Pilates as a form of conditioning. After recovering from an intense injury that halted her dance career, Colleen discovered a new passion: therapeutic recovery and assisting others through strength training, writing and inspiration. Facing her fears head on, she developed Fearlessly Fit Life and has not looked back. She invests her time outside of performing in helping clients condition injuries, lose weight, live with less pain and transform their lifestyle.

She lives by the motto of taking the fear out of fitness by practicing fitness and health on a daily basis.
