We had the good fortune of connecting with Katelyn Ctvrtlik and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Katelyn, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
My work life balanced has changed immensely. When I first opened my business, I was 23 and a workaholic. I woke up at 4:45am everyday and worked a 15 hour day…. yikes! Fast forward to 6 years later and I am in a completely different headspace. I have set boundaries and it feels incredible to say NO. I have developed time for my work, my business, my relationships and most importantly myself.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Pilates Place has been a critically acclaimed business in South Bay for 12 years. We are a fully equipped classical facility that has only top-of-the-line Gratz Pilates Equipment. All of our instructors are constantly looking for new ways to enhance their movement-based knowledge through continuing education courses. Members of our staff also love to work with the community as Health Coaches and Movement Therapists. We believe movement is medicine.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them down Pier Avenue!!! We have a wide variety of small businesses that I love to support. Hermosa Beach is a beach lovers dream town.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am so grateful to be a part of this Shoutout series. First, I would love to give a little credit to my family, friends and boyfriend who have believed in me through my journey. They have all seen me at my highest of highs and lowest of lows and I am forever grateful for their love and support. Next, I would love to thank my team of talented instructors that have kept my doors open through 2020 and our loyal clientele of pilates lovers. It truly takes a village.
