Cecilia Dominuez

Level V Instructor


Cecilia Dominguez is the owner of Pilates Authentica.  A native of Corpus Christi, she moved to San Antonio in 1999 to complete her Bachelor's Degree in Exercise/Sport Science from St. Mary's University.  Her goal was to attend medical school, however when her brother, Ben Martinez, exposed her to Pilates in 2000, she was hooked.  Instead of pursuing a medical degree, she began the rigorous training required to  complete Romana's Pilates certification program. She is currently a Level V Instructor.  Prior to earning the certification in 2009, Cecilia was a Personal Trainer/Group Exercise Instructor and has over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry.
