Up Close and Personal: Katie Huddleston

written by Katie Huddleston, Pure Pilates Instructor

Katie is a wife and a mom of 3 adorable tiny human beings, but before that she was a professional dancer who performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and in the Broadway 1st National Tour of Anything Goes. She left a NYC Pilates studio to work at Pure Pilates and the clients just love her! Katie’s personality shines through as a teacher and in her answers in our latest Up Close and Personal blog post.

What are you binge watching right now?
Currently looking for the next favorite series, but some recent favorites: Queen’s Gambit, Yellowstone, Little Fires Everywhere, Billions, and Handmaid’s Tale

Favorite person in the world?
My husband is my favorite. We’ve been together since I was 15 so we know each other better than anyone. He continues to amaze me in the way that he strives to do better, not only as a human being, dad, and husband, but in his work. He is a television producer, and his work over the last five years has greatly impacted so many lives for the better.  He is the most humble, and can make me laugh harder than anyone….and let’s be honest, we all needed to laugh during, through, and after this past year!

Favorite snack?
My latest favorite snack is a Medjool date with a little bit of almond butter on top. It’s delicious. But I also love chips and salsa 🙂

Last book you read?
So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo….a fascinating and important read especially as a white woman in America raising little humans. Highly recommend, as it makes you think outside your box, just when you think you don’t have one.

First thing you do when you wake up?
Drink the rest of my water on my bedside table. I try my best to start my day with water rather than coffee 🙂 Lots and lots of coffee.

Rapid Fire:

Morning or night person? MORNING
Left Handed or Right Handed? RIGHT
Tidy or Messy? TIDY
Coffee or Tea? COFFEE
Mac or PC? MAC
Dogs or Cats? DOGS

Sweet or Savory? SAVORY

Meat or Fish or Vege? FISH

Summer or Winter? SUMMER

Vanilla or Chocolate? VANILLA

Favorite Pilates apparatus or Pilates exercise?

The Chair! I have one at home and it has completely kept me sane this year. Longing for days in the studio, having a small apparatus at home has allowed me to not only work out, but connect with other teachers, past mentors, and create and explore exercises for my clients.
