At Marathon Pilates, we know that the discipline and movement of a regular practice of Pilates can be of great benefit to everyone. As safe as it is challenging, Marathon Pilates delivers a unique blend of strength and flexibility - a resistance-based, low-impact workout that lengthens muscles and strengthens the core. Flowing from the center of the body, Pilates provides overall strength with a sense of calm internal focus, propelling you to your personal best.
We at Marathon align with the best instructors to ensure that your needs are uniquely met. Meet Team MP!
Susan took her first barre class in September of 2011 and eventually started teaching not long after in May of 2012. With a background in dance and an interest in anatomy, it didn't take long to realize barre was the perfect union of those two interests. Originally from Chicago, Susan has taught barre in several cities and states and eventually landed in Nashville in 2015. It wasn't until she was 20 weeks pregnant with her first baby that she thought it would be a good idea to try her first Pilates class ever and walked into Marathon's studio ready to work. From that first class she fell in love with the parallels of barre and Pilates and continued her practice at Marathon. In March of 2020 after the tornado hit Nashville and at the start of a pandemic, Susan took on the role of manager of Marathon. Even though the timing was interesting in starting a new role, she was (and is!) so excited to be a part of the Marathon family!
