Crystal White

Pilates Instructor


Crystal began practicing Pilates in 2009 at Aerobifit, which turned into a passion and ultimately led her to leave the world of finance. She chose to study under the Stott method which provides a strong base in anatomy and programming for a variety of populations.

She completed her first Reformer training in 2012 and has since added Cadillac, Chair and Barrels, along with many intense hours of observation, practical teaching and anatomy review.

Crystal continues to train and work at the only Stott Pilates licensed studio in Houston under a Lead Instructor Trainer. She is excited to be back at Aerobifit and looks forward to sharing her knowledge and passion.

Becca Suter

Power Pilates Mat Certified
CPR and AED Certified


I joined the Aerobifit family in early 2015 and havenít looked back since. I have taken what was previously just a passion at my work and home to a new level by joining the ranks of Aerobifit trainers.

My background is accounting but at my current place of business, I spend as much time as I can designing and creating new workouts for my co-workers to tackle during our lunch hour. I love teaching, guiding and seeing growth in those I train. My passion is in movement of the body, incorporating yoga into my routines often.

Pilates and yoga combine for an incredible workout and provide a new sense of self through stillness and balance.

Rose Sharp

PFIT-Personal Training & Group Fitness


Fitness is my passion and I enjoy helping & motivating others to live a healthier lifestyle. I have been in the fitness industry for over 10yrs, and I believe whole heartedly that exercise and proper nutrition is the key to longivity. I lead by example by exercising regularly & making healthy food choices. I enjoy one on one personal training with my clients, because I get to design programs specific to their needs. It's not only rewarding to the client when they achieve their fitness goals, but also for me as a trainer.

I have experience in personal training, pilates, boot camp, & athletic conditioning. I enjoy the great outdoors by golfing & competing in adventure races, such as the warrior dash, dragonboat regatta & the MS150. I believe that our bodies are a precious & valuable machine, that requires regular physical maintenance. If we allow our bodies to set up and collect dust, it will loose power & begin to break down, due to lack of activity.

I have always had a passion for health and fitness. It was not until a personal trainer saw in me something that I did not see in myself. He encouraged me to pursue a career in the fitness industry. Having over 16 years experience as a Registered Veterinary Technician, I felt I was ready to change careers and fulfill my passion. Now, I love what I do by helping others in achieving their goals to be fit, strong, and live a healthy lifestyle.

I am the owner of Precision Dynamic Training and work out of the Aerobifit Fitness facility. Previously, I worked at a local Outdoor Boot Camp company, an athletic peformance gym, a women's only health club and in-home personal training. I have played competitive and recreational softball, cycled with the Houston Police Department Leukemia Relay Team, and the BP MS 150. I have also completed numerous local charitable fun runs. I have 2 boys who are both active in sports, motorcross and fitness.

I believe your health is your wealth! Fitness became personal for me after my recent struggle with obesity. I had very little energy and everything seemed to be a struggle. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels were all extremely high. My doctor said I had one of two choices: lose weight or medication.

I refused the medication and decided to start living a healthier lifestyle. That decision has made my life so much easier and also led me into the health & fitness industry! I enjoy helping others along their mission to live healthier and happier lives!

I like a variety of exercises like weight training, cardio, and HIIT. I enjoy participating in outdoor activities such as 5K/10K events, hiking trails, crossfit, swimming, and Iíve also cycled in the BP MS150.
