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!
