    Susan is truly amazing, inside and out. Her knowledge of pilates and the body is fantastic. Even in a group setting she can personalize the workout. I feel better physically, mentally and emotionally everytime I am able to visit Studio 83. ❤❤❤

    Suzan really help me understand how to properly position my body during my first class. It felt so good and was so fun! I feel more flexible already! The women were very nice that were in the studio. I will definitely be coming back and signing up for regular classes.

    I love pilates due to the diverse movements that work on all parts of your body. I feel my core and posture are more strong, thus it takes away many joint issues since it balances the muscle groups. I feel taller and more sturdy. The first workout was really challenging since one needs to concentrate a lot on how you do the movement for the best results. It is important to have an instructor who watches you to make sure you are doing the movement accurately and that is exactly what brings me back to Pilates each week. I look forward to the different workouts and challenges and I feel stronger. I feel it is a way I can take charge of my health to be able to move easier as I grow older. Pilates also gives me confidence that I can challenge myself and improve over time. It keeps me coming back. Ann Krueger

    I wanted to cry after my first Pilates class. I was so out of shape and could perform only half of the exercises. I practiced at home so as not to be embarrassed at the next class. Now, years later, thanks to Studio 83, I am so much stronger & much more flexible! Classes are always challenging and fun at the same time. The knowledgeable instructors push us to do better by adjusting our movements to get the most out of an exercise. Their knowledge of anatomy & how each exercise affects it always amazes me. Love Pilates! Laurie Stricker

There are several ways to begin. Private instruction- Introductory package of 2 private sessions. One and one instruction , just you and a teacher.

Weekly sessions of once or twice a week is the best way to start. Every new client recieves a complimentary consult with our Drs. of Physical Therapy and our Health Coaches.

How did you get started teaching?

As an endurance athlete and Exercise instructor who taught everything from Spin to Cardio kickboxing, I needed to find a form of movement that would help me release my tight sore muscles and I found Pilates.  After my first Pilates mat class I was hooked.  I then got certified and began teaching it to others.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of clients.  I have worked with clients with hip/knee replacements, back pain, shoulder pain, athletes, Seniors and everything inbetween.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Since Pilates is about more than exercises and choreography, it is essential that clients work with a qualified teacher. In order for a teacher to be truly great it, takes more than training — they must also have talent. Good training yields a good teacher. Good training plus talent equals a great teacher.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do they want to get out of the session?  What is the ultimate goal?  Flexibility, strength, pain relief, balance, core strength.
