Gidget Anthony

Owner of The Designed Body

Gidget opened The Designed Body in 2003 shortly after her daughter was born.  With Pilates, she felt she had finally found what she had been looking for in the field of movement and fitness.  For the past 20 years she has worn many hats in this field, but with integrated movement and conscious life choices she feels finally at “home”.  Her studio was awarded Best Pilates Studio in Dallas 5 times, an honor she is very proud of.  As she has continued to train in more modalities, the decision to focus on her clients privately became an obvious one.  Gidget now works with her clients in a private home studio located in Plano.  This has allowed her to prioritize her role as mom and trainer.

She considers herself a knowledge “junkie” and has spent the past few years expanding her knowledge into the field of the fascial system.  Acquiring additional knowledge of how the body is designed to work and how we can achieve our goals has become her passion.  She is currently completing her education with the Gyrotonic Expansion System.

“I am interested in training bodies throughout the many phases of life.  Whether you have an injury or pain, want to relieve stress and make time for yourself or are looking to become more competitive at your sport.  I want to assist you with your journey”
