Susan Schieffley, Apprentice Instructor

Susan is your typical working mom who leans in.  Having struggled with her weight her whole life, including extreme obesity, Susan empathizes with those who suffer the mental anguish and sense of defeat caused by excess weight.  She understands the nature of compulsive overeating, poor nutritional choices, and the resulting lack of energy which leads to a sedentary lifestyle.  She got serious about her health and fitness when she had a daughter and wanted to be a better food and exercise role model for her child. 

Susan found Pilates through REV Pilates Gym and fell in love with the gentle but highly effective total body toning.  She found that improving her core, created improved mobility and enabled her to get in better shape to tackle other forms of exercise that she also enjoys, such as walking, TRX, cross fit circuit training, body pump, and even dance cardio!  Susan decided to go through Stott Pilates training because she wants to help others permanently break the obesity cycle and become the best version of themselves - for good.  Today, Susan is able to maintain her weight and live an active lifestyle by making her daily fitness regimen a top priority.  Everyone in her family has not only benefited from her improved mood and vitality, they too have taken a healthier path and focus on healthy eating and exercise as an essential part of their daily self care.
