Who: Kim Wallis, @Pilates4Pros
Where: St. Louis, MO
By Day: Certified strength and Pilates trainer, and founder of Pilates4Pros, LLC, a performance and rehabilitative training program for professional athletes. Most mornings I teach either spinning or high-intensity group strength training. Ideally, I grab a quick shower—although my days are rarely ideal—and then head to my studio for private sessions. My chaotic schedule is at the mercy of the current sports season and the needs of my athlete clients. I train many of their wives, who tend to be much lower maintenance.
By Night: Unorganized mom, trophy wife, obsessive laundress and social media junkie. If I'm not still at work....
Style: My workday style is yoga pants, Nikes/flip-flops/Uggs and a beanie or baseball cap to keep my wild waves at bay. Off work, I'm a denim addict—I have more than 80 pairs of jeans and I'm partial to Mother, Frame and Rag & Bone. My style probably falls under boho—my fave lines are Wildfox, Free People, Joie and I love me some Rails plaid! If I actually have to get a little fancy, Parker dresses are my go-to.
You Complete Me: Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara, $30
"My eyelashes are kind of my thing. I always get asked if they're real and I've used Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effects—the original formula, not waterproof—for years. I'll try a new one every now and then when I get sucked in by good advertising but I have yet to find anything better. I never leave the house without mascara and it needs to stay put through multiple sweat sessions plus my attempts at freshening up. I apply it around 7am and it lasts all day and night without smudging. YSL Volume Effects adds length and volume in one coat, never clumps and leaves my lashes soft, not crispy, even if I reapply."
