Dawn Keating

Studio co-owner & PMA Certified Pilates Instructor. Dawn graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1991, with a Bachelors Degree in Biology, and married her high school sweetheart, Michael Keating. They have been married over 20 years and have lived in The Woodlands since 2004. While her main job is raising three children, she co-owns Healthy Life Unlimited Pilates Studio and specializes in training clients that are just out of physical therapy, but not quite ready for group fitness classes. Dawn has been teaching Pilates since 2001, and what started out as a hobby, has now become her passion. Dawn became a Comprehensively Certified Pilates Instructor through PHI Pilates as well as a PMA Certified Pilates Instructor, which is the highest pilates certification that you can achieve. She is also a Master Trainer for PHI Pilates, meaning she trains others to be pilates instructors.

"Pilates is a life changing experience. I feel so blessed that we are able to grow and share this amazing exercise with everyone around us. I would like to thank all of our clients that have been with us for so long...you are the reason that we love what we do. Thank you to Morgan Norris who designed our logo, we love it! Thank you to Dan McCarty, without you we would not have our studio. Thank you to Kate Fitzgerald who took beautiful photographs and Barbi Doty for decorating. Last but not least, thank you to my darling husband who started our path to a Healthy Life over seventeen years ago. You are my inspiration." -- Dawn Keating

Michael Keating

Studio co-owner & PMA Certified Pilates Instructor. Michael's passion for exercise and health began with his career in motocross racing. He started racing at age eight and raced professionally from 1992 through 1998. In 1992, he obtained his Bachelors of Science degree in Animal Science from West Texas A&M University. He then turned his focus toward helping others be healthy. In 1999, he became a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Certified Personal Trainer through Baylor College of Medicine's PFIT program. Wanting to be more versatile, he continued his education and added certifications in Accupressure, Spinning, Yoga and Nutrition. His interest in Pilates began when he started attending his wife Dawn's pilates classes in 2001. He realized that Pilates would be an incredibly challenging and beneficial workout that would complement his training programs, so he became certified in Pilates as well.

"I love getting to do what I love with my wife, Dawn, and all the great people we are blessed to work with in our new studio. This fantastic new studio allows us to help so many more people. It's amazing!"
