Kurt Gorrell


About Kurt Gorrell: Kurt Gorrell has been an athlete and fitness enthusiast his entire life. Growing up, he played soccer for 13 years, wrestled for 4 and was a competitive gymnast for 10. After retiring from gymnastics as a competitor he started coaching team and recreational gymnastics to students ages 3 to 73. He started dancing at the late age of 20 and recently finished a 16 year career as a professional dancer. He danced principal and soloist roles with many regional ballet companies as well as contemporary companies. Broadway National Tour credits include Contact in 2005 and Twyla Tharp’s Movin’ Out in 2008-9. In between dance engagements, Gorrell turned his talents to personal training. He is a Certified Exercise Physiologist with the American College of Sports Medicine, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach and a certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise. He also holds Pilates certifications in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac and Chair from Pilates Academy International, and he is a Master Trainer in Redcord® Active, a dual suspension training system. With his extensive knowledge of the body and his experience as a dancer, gymnast and personal trainer he was able to develop such classes as Gymnastics for Dancers, recently featured in Dance Magazine (March 2011) and Gymtensity, a gymnastics conditioning class featuring a boot camp style workout involving ring training, basic gymnastics conditioning and calisthenics. Gorrell is currently a Senior Gymnastics Instructor at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, teaching students of all ages and levels from 3 to adult, a Pilates and Redcord® Active master trainer at Pilates on Fifth, and a private personal trainer and Pilates instructor in New York City.
