Liz Hilliard created Hilliard Studio Method® along with her daughter, Clary Hilliard Gray. This dynamic mother-daughter team co-own HSM.
In 2007, Clary asked Liz, a STOTT Pilates-certified instructor, for help in transforming Clary’s body for her upcoming wedding. Liz took the challenge to heart with her signature determination, ambition and focus. She dove head first into the latest research on exercise and cutting edge workouts, traveling across the country to learn the most powerful techniques taught in a variety of studios by a variety of fitness disciplines. Liz created what has been described as “Pilates on Steroids” - Hilliard Studio Method®.
Today, this mother-daughter team is the driving force behind HSM brand development. In the last nine years, this team has grown the brand to include a flagship studio in the Myers Park neighborhood of Charlotte, over 45 classes taught weekly by a team of highly-trained, HSM-certified trainers, a series of downloadable workout videos, a product line of branded apparel, partnerships with local and internationally-known lifestyle and fitness products as well as a signature smoothie.
