Tara Hughes


Tara, a native of Winston Salem, moved to Charlotte in 2005 after graduating from Furman University.   She has always led an active lifestyle, mostly focused on swimming and running. After her first class at Hilliard Studio Method, Tara quickly realized all she was missing and started training to become a teacher within her first three months.

“It was a relief to find a workout that builds muscle, increases flexibility and transforms your body without hours of cardio”, she says.  “My whole understanding of working out with effectiveness and efficiency changed after my first class, now I will never go back!”

Look for Tara to give you a killer workout with a smile on her face the whole time.  “I love to workout and it is a privilege to teach clients this one of a kind method.  We are so lucky to have Liz and Clary in Charlotte working hard every day to keep the method challenging, evolving and motivating.  This workout will never get boring.”

When she’s not in the studio Tara spends a lot of time at NASCAR tracks around the country with her job at HB&M Sports, a Charlotte based sports marketing agency.
