August Members Of The Month:  Patrick and Connie Sullivan

 

The Sullivans1. Tell us about yourselves. What are your interests outside the studio?

Pat and I have been married for 27 years. We live in Clifton with our Golden Retriever, Boston. We have two daughters ages 23 and 18. Our oldest, Brooke, graduated from JMU, works in Fairfax and lives in Arlington. Our youngest, Catherine, will be a freshman at Penn State this fall so we are soon to be empty nesters! I am a former Elementary Special Education teacher, and Pat owns his own insurance agency in Fairfax. We enjoy cooking, hiking, traveling and going to the beach. We both come from big families so we spend lots of time with our relatives. Pat and I both play tennis, and he is an avid golfer.

 

2. When did you start Pilates? 

It was 2 years ago for me, and Pat just started coming this past winter.

3. What drew you to REV Pilates Gym?

I took a complementary Reformer class with a friend, and loved it. Patrick was complaining about feeling tightness in his lower back and hips. I suggested he try Pilates because it would help relieve tension in his back muscles. We both needed the stretching, flexibility and core strengthening that comes with doing Pilates.

4. What positive changes have you seen since you joined? 

Pilates has really complemented our tennis and golf games!

5. What keeps you coming back?  

It’s a great studio and the instructors are awesome! We enjoy the variety of classes that are offered and are so glad that we joined the REV studio!
