Conni the Innovator

On March 16th, 2020 Conni Ponturo had to close her Pilates studio in Los Angeles because of the pandemic. Feeling the loss of connection with her clients she decided to go virtual. Within 10 days she was up and running, sending daily workouts to her clients and friends and teaching virtual Pilates mat classes with whatever props her clients had in their homes. The challenge of all this new technology was a bit overwhelming at first with Conni being 66 and some of her clients in their 80s. But no one was left out of the onboarding process and Conni and her loyal clients have been enjoying classes for over 2 years online. Out of those classes, she build this membership site Absolutely Grounded. Ponturo says when you have a burning desire to get something done you do whatever you need to do to accomplish that goal. I embrace technology now for all that it has challenged me with and ultimately taught me.

I look forward to my next big thing. Stay tuned…
