About The Instructors

Meet Stephen Dunn, PT,DPT, co-owner of Core Therapy and Pilates with his wife, Cheryl.

My name is Stephen Dunn. I am a Physical Therapist since 1998 and a Pilates Instructor since 2002, GYROTONIC(R) Instructor since 2009.
My wife, Cheryl Dunn, and I co-own CORE Therapy & Pilates in Austin, Texas. Cheryl is a Pilates and Gyrotonic Master Trainer and we have worked together since 2002 to help keep people stay active and fit, moving away from pain pills and surgery to a healthy lifestyle. We have been training Pilates Instructors since 2006 and have shifted to an online platform for our Pilates Mat Teacher Training.  
 Have you seen your hours cut in 2020? 
Have you been feeling burned out treating so many clients at once? 
Are you tired of watching from the sidelines as others succeed with their fitness business? 
We know that times are tough for Therapists in 2020. If you are looking like every other PT out there with your skill set, not unique at all, then what is your plan? Are you tired of treating patients and them leaving after PT but not being strong enough to your liking? Tired of losing clients to the personal trainers that do not have your education? I have seen all of this in previous PT jobs before opening my own place and focusing on Pilates instead of PT.  
Do you want to have 15 year clients because of your Pilates program? 
Do you want to serve clients virtually with exercise?  
Do you want half your income to come from a wellness program?  
Do you want to keep clients in a fitness program so that when they are injured or need PT that you are already in their circle?  
When we opened our studio in Austin, we were sick and tired of dealing with HMO’s, Workers Comp, Physician Owned Clinics. We took 2 private insurance plans for a decade and then went completely out of network in 2016. We built it around combining Physical Therapy and Pilates. It worked and we have successfully built a studio with half our income from PT and half from our fitness side of Pilates/Gyrotonic private sessions and group classes. We have a full studio of equipment with 5-7 Pilates trainers working with us at a time… Clients know more about Pilates than they do about Physical Therapy!  
Leverage that by offering Pilates to your community. This opens new doors and opportunities to serve more and make more income.  
Help clients in new ways, create new revenue streams by getting trained to teach Pilates Mat and building your Pilates practice.
