MIGHTY’S MISSION

INSPIRE CLIENTS TO FEEL WONDERFUL ABOUT THEMSELVES, GET ENERGIZED AND ESCAPE LIFE’S CHALLENGES WHEN THEY ARE AT MIGHTY!

Cricket discovered the joy of energetic Pilates workouts while living in Australia in 2007. She did a class with multiple reformers in the room and loved the energy that the group brought to Pilates. She knew fit folks in the US would love the mix of Classical Pilates with energetic workouts. Once certified in Pilates from BASI, Cricket opened the first Mighty with friends in 2009 in San Francisco.

She was scraping the funds together to follow her passion while working in digital marketing – she couldn’t leave the corporate world yet. She quit her day job in 2015 and opened the second Mighty in Santa Monica, adding more class variety. She added Marin in 2019 and partnered with longtime Mighty instructor manager, Christine Vleck, to open Lafayette in 2022.  As a single mom, Cricket understands the importance of making your daily workout also feel like a special treat because that time is so valuable.  Her greatest joy: I love to hear that Mighty is a client’s “happy place!”

Christine discovered pilates in 2005 after a foot injury sidelined her from her marathon and triathlon training.  She was humbled at how challenging the first class was and after 6 weeks of daily pilates she was amazed at how it transformed her body and made her stronger to tackle her running, cycling and swimming again.  In 2008 after finishing her MBA she decided to enroll in a teacher training program with master trainer Lara Hudson.  

Christine has moonlighted as a pilates instructor at Mighty San Francisco since 2010 while balancing a full-time corporate job at CLIF Bar leading the eCommerce and Shopper Marketing team.  In 2018 she made her way to Moraga with her growing family (2 daughters and husband Andrew).  She is thrilled to be partnering with Cricket to bring Mighty Pilates to Lamorinda!
