She applies her extensive knowledge of the body, her descriptive, motivational cueing, and years of Pilates experience to this new, cutting edge, future of fitness method of Megaformer™.

Li Ng

Li is a local Jersey City resident and use to travel around the metro area for Megaformer. This was a missing category for Jersey City and it was her goal to make it available in her backyard!

Li is a corporate professional and entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in the asset management and consumer packaged goods industries. She earned her B.S. in Finance (’09) and Masters in Economic Development (’13) from Fordham University.  Her career started working for the City of New York in asset management. Later she transitioned into the consumer packaged goods industry working for category leaders including PepsiCo, Pernod Ricard and Diageo.  Li has successfully climbed the corporate management ladder at a relatively early age through dedication and tenacity for success in what she does.  In 2015 she shifted gears and partnered with Dani to form 8 Springs Studio, Jersey City's first Megaformer™studio.
