Ignite Pilates owner and Movement Coach Teran Maliske

Teran Maliske is Ignite’s fearless leader, and what her team calls (awkward) Jedi Master. Teran’s list of education includes:.

  • comprehensively certified with Peak Pilates, which means that she has earned Levels 1-3.

  • continuing education courses in Pilates for tower (Springboard at the Ignite Studio), jump board, and stretch band.

  • class from the Pilates Institute of Boulder on Prenatal Pilates.

  • three classes of the Pilates Suspension Method (about to earn her certification in 2020).

  • attended Momentum Fest in 2019, and registered for 2020.

  • attended Shift Happens with James Crader and Anula Maiberg.

  • has taken the following classes with TRX: Suspension Training Course, Functional Training Course and Group Training Course

Teran is also currently studying for her Precision Nutrition certification.


Teran began studying Pilates in the fall of 2014 and a year later decided to open Ignite Pilates in Gillette, Wyoming. In 2017, Teran incorporated TRX into the studio with just two classes.


“My oh my, things sure have changed since I first started. I now have five other movement coaches who work with me, offer nearly 30 Pilates and TRX classes, and am looking for ways to continue to grow,” she says.


Teran hopes to inspire people from every walk of life, and of every shape and size, to move.


“I enjoy exercise now; 10 years ago I didn't. I always felt out of place being a bigger girl in the gym. Now that I have a supporting place to workout, it is easy to move,” she says. “ Movement heals. For me, exercise is no longer about size or weight, it is about feeling great... inside and out!”


Teran wants to help everyone enjoy movement like she does.


“One thing that helps is the great tribe of people at Ignite who are encouraging and supportive. We’ve created a family,” she says.


Teran wants you to know that you DO NOT need to be skinny or thin or in shape to start moving.


“Pilates and TRX are for any BODY, at any level,” she says.


When Teran isn’t coaching movement at Ignite, she spends as much time with her family and friends as possible. Her and her husband (Tim) have three dogs—Marlee, Hank, and Gilly—and one cat named Diesel who was found on the family farm.


“Come join us at Ignite. Try a class! We don't bite,” she says.
