Nora Wilwert is originally from the suburbs of Chicago IL. She moved here in 2006 when her husband was stationed at Barksdale AFB. She discovered group fitness classes when she was trying to get in shape after her first baby and has been hooked ever since!
She now has three young children that keep her on her toes and has been an AFAA certified group fitness instructor and personal trainer since 2006. She started as a step and cardio instructor and her passion for wellness has driven her to never stop learning and growing as fitness professional.
In 2008, she was certified in Pilates and uses this training to not only teach Pilates but also to incorporate core work into all of her fitness classes. Additionally she has gone on to get certifications in Barre Pilates and PiYo. She has also done numerous continuing education hours in yoga, mat science, core training and is excited to continue to expand her practice and bring her diverse approach to fitness to Empower Yoga!
