Event Leaders
Neely Hufnagel

Neely believes strongly on implementing Pilates into your fitness regimen. “Pilates is a core-based practice that involves the whole body and is imperative for overall body strength and wellness.”

Neely, a Calgary Native is the founder/owner of Pilates on 3rd in Jacksonville Beach, FL. With a lifelong background in fitness she discovered Pilates in 2004. She built her studio in 2011 with the goal to get everyone loving Pilates! “Pilates is a form of exercise that impacts the mind, body, and spirit and I truly believe all my clients walk away from a class at my studio feeling stronger, empowered, and more centered. I love to create an environment that allows my clients to push their limits while paying meticulous attention to form and the mind-body connection.” Neely is trained and certified on all Pilates Apparatuses. And with her experience in athletics and fitness, she has created a method that incorporates core focused Pilates exercises with cardio and resistance training so clients feel pushed, motivated, inspired and capable.
