Diane Adams-Strickland is a third-generation instructor and graduate of the Excel Pilates Teacher Training Program under Alexandra Adams. In early 2020, she was one of four Pilates instructors accepted to participate in a year-long intensive teacher training program with Chris Robinson of Pilates and Sports, formally S6 Fitness. Besides her weekly training with Chris Robinson and Victoria Torrie-Capan, she furthers her Pilates education by attending workshops held by Kathi Ross-Nash, Dana Santi, Andrea Maida, Kerry DeVivo and other second generation teachers.

A native Washingtonian, Diane holds a B.A. from the University of Maryland, College Park and a J.D. from The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law. She first turned to Pilates to help heal tendinitis and hip bursitis while training for a marathon. Besides running, Diane enjoys dancing, music and hanging out with her two small children. She is excited to share her love of Pilates to every body and everybody. She particularly enjoys working with athletes and persons with special needs.
