Kendall Richter

My name is Kendall Richter from Manhattan Beach, CA. I moved to Victor full-time in July of 2021 after spending two summers here. I fell in love with the mountains, the fishing, hiking, and most of all the lifestyle and people of the Valley. I trained as an Xformer Pilates instructor at Coreology in my hometown of Manhattan Beach. Before becoming a certified instructor, I was an avid pilates taker for over 5 years and finally took the leap to an instructor in 2020. I wanted to bring my love for Xformer Pilates to the Valley, and share this amazing workout with the active people here. I believe in a healthy body, healthy mind mentality and I hope to share my passion for pilates with the people of Teton Valley.
