Hilary Ryan, Marathon athlete and suburban Philadelphia native, introduces the state-of-the-art MegaFormer™ workout to the Main Line with the opening of Plank Studio in Wayne, PA. Ryan learned of this industry-renowned Pilates method while living in New York City, the first adopter outside of Los Angeles, where the workout originated.
A born athlete, Hilary became passionate about Pilates upon completing her first New York City Marathon in 2007. After surpassing this personal milestone, Hilary challenged her overall fitness to another level by training for her certification of the elite MegaFormer™ machine.
Today Hilary returns to her hometown roots to achieve her ultimate work – life balance by founding and leading Plank Studio. At Plank Studio, Hilary combines her love for fitness with her savvy for finances – which she also perfected in New York City during her seven year career as an AVP, Senior Marketing Associate for Sanford C. Bernstein, Wall Street’s premier sell-side research firm.
Hilary’s actualization of her fitness passion-turned-career reality with the opening of Plank Studio earmarks another milestone for this 30-year-old athlete. The industrial-inspired Plank Studio brings a minimal urban chic design to its classic Main Line outpost above the iconic Kody’s Lighting at 530 West Lancaster. A state-of-the-art sound system and ten game-changing MegaFormer™ machines, combined with expert-level instructors, guarantee the best 50-minute, heart-pumping, muscle-strengthening, total-body conditioning to hit the Main Line.
Hilary is both a business owner and resident of Wayne, PA, and enjoys time with both family and friends with whom she grew up in Gwynedd Valley, Pa. She received her B.A in Business Management from Gettysburg College and attended The Springside School where she played Varsity Field Hockey and Lacrosse.
