About Linda Farrell
PMA® member and NCPT, Linda Farrell has been teaching Pilates mat online since 2020 with her program LindaFit Live!  She also teaches Pilates online for the Broadway Dance Center in New York City, where she has worked for the last 26 years.  She also taught Pilates mat at the Equinox Fitness Clubs in New York City for 25 years.  Students marvel at how long and lean they feel after one of her inspiring classes. Linda’s clear articulation, poise, and precise cueing make for her unique style and her warmth, kindness, compassion, and humor, distinguish her as one of New York City’s most of the most popular Pilates mat teachers.

Linda’s initial training was at the Pilates Studio of Physical and Mental Body Conditioning (Studio) in New York City where she studied with master teacher, Romana Kryzanowska. After completing her certification in 1993, Linda worked for the Studio training students on both the mat and apparatus. Soon after she discovered she had a unique talent for describing and articulating the mat exercises to her students. Linda took this skill with her to the Equinox Fitness Clubs where she pioneered the Pilates Mat program introducing the first mat class in the winter of 1995. Achieving great success and acclaim for her Equinox mat classes, Linda left the Studio and devoted her time and energy to developing the Pilates Mat program at Equinox. Within a short time, Linda implemented a Pilates Mat program at the Broadway Dance Center in 1996, and in 2004 she launched her own LindaFit Pilates Mat Teacher Training Program.

Linda Farrell’s popularity and success as a pilates mat teacher have propelled her to the forefront in her field. Linda has conducted teacher-training workshops at major dance conferences such as Broadway Dance’s,  The Pulse- Annual Teacher Workshop, the Annual Dance Teacher Conference and the Star Dance Alliance Conference.  She has also taught at fitness conferences such as The Pilates Method Alliance, Pilatesstyle, the East Coast Alliance, and the Fitness Factory.

She has appeared as a Pilates expert in diverse media such as Live with Regis and Kelly, FOX News, The Today Show, and Good Morning America, and has been featured in publications such as USA Today, Pilatesstyle, Elle, Woman’s Day, Good Housekeeping, Vogue, The Daily News, Shape and Fitness. She also has her own series of Pilates tapes and DVDs called Core Conditioning, her own classic Pilates mat DVD and two Gaiam pilates with props DVDs.
