Before launching WundaBar Pilates, celebrity trainer and founder Amy (Sowers) Jordan was an entertainment marketing executive and loved the challenge of building global campaigns for powerhouse brands such as Spider-Man, Shrek and Curious George. Amy originally practiced Pilates in Hollywood as a hobby to achieve her fitness goals, but after ups and downs in her personal life, it became more than a workout – Pilates had become a motivating and mind-saving place for her.
After experiencing the amazing outcomes not only to her physique but also to her frame of mind, she decided to share that positivity with others in her hometown of Montrose, California, by opening her first Pilates studio in 2008. Her motivation was to bring health, strength, and good things to her clients’ lives and based on the hundreds of devoted new friends who work out with Amy, those objectives were achieved and then some!
Joseph Pilates originated the Pilates movement as an integrated and comprehensive system of physical exercise in the early 1900s, and millions have benefited ever since. After opening two energetic Pilates studios, Amy knew bringing Pilates to the people could be done – and it could be done better.
Amy’s enthusiasm for fun, fitness, people and Pilates all came together with the launch of WundaBar Pilates and the exclusive WundaFormer3 in 2011. WundaBar Pilates is the only studio featuring the WundaFormer – the latest, the greatest, the ONLY Pilates equipment you need to achieve unparalleled results faster than anything you’ve ever tried!

Amy (Sowers) Jordan
Celebrity trainer Amy Jordan began practicing Pilates in 2006 and loves sharing her fitness passion with friends, family and clients since her first high-energy Pilates studio opened in 2008. “You are only as strong as you prepare yourself to be; emotionally, physically, and spiritually. With Pilates, you tap into energy and strength you may not even know you possess!” In 2011 Amy launched WundaBar Pilates, the revolutionary Pilates studios you can visit across the nation today.
“It’s simple, really. I aimed to create the Gold Standard of Pilates equipment in one outstanding machine, to allow for unprecedented client results and access for anyone seeking their WundaBody!” After creating the WundaFormer, she knew this would blossom into business opportunities for other success-minded individuals!
Amy leads her team not only with an expertise in fitness, but also with a background as an Entertainment Marketing Executive with over 12 years of experience developing global campaigns for Universal Studios, Marvel Entertainment, Fox, Sony and DreamWorks.
Amy and her husband, Vahe, enjoy their sunshine-soaked life in Los Angeles with their beautiful son and daughter.
