About the Author
Beth A. Kaplanek, RN, BSN, is a Pilates instructor and practitioner of Pilates for rehabilitation at The Pilates Center of Long Island in Huntington, New York. She started her career in fitness in 1998, teaching aerobics and personal training. Kaplanek served for 20 years as a registered nurse working in various capacities in emergency room care, operating room care, intensive care, drug counseling and rehabilitation, and hospice care.
After undergoing a hip replacement in 2001, Kaplanek began using Pilates as a form of low-impact exercise and strength and flexibility training. Encouraged by her physician’s positive prognosis, she began researching how the Pilates method could be modified and used by people with hip or knee conditions and replacements. Kaplanek’s research with Dr. Levine and Dr. Jaffe regarding Pilates as a form of postoperative rehabilitation has been published in the Bulletin of the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases and Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research.
Kaplanek resides in Lloyd Harbor, New York, and Coconut Grove, Florida. In her free time she volunteers her time to a national non-profit organization lecturing and writing on issues related to AD/HD and parenting. She enjoys designing jewelry, hiking, exercising, and attending vintage car road rallies.
