Beth Marquis, PEAK Certified Pilates Instructor & Owner
“As a Pilates Instructor, my focus is to guide and cheer students toward their fitness goals – be it to better their bodies, relieve stress or reduce chronic pain. My day is a success when an exercise becomes a healthy habit that my student can rely on for improved everyday living.”
Beth has studied Pilates since 2009. An active lifestyle has always been a priority for her. When chronic shoulder pain prevented many of her daily activities she turned to Pilates. After a few classes she realized the exercises were similar to her PT homework. The difference was, it was fun! It was fabulous for toning, strengthening, retraining poor muscle patterns, building better posture, and it included a mind-body connection similar to yoga. This beautiful movement system became her passion and she soon received her certification through PEAK Pilates.
As an instructor, Beth combines fundamental techniques with both mat and equipment session for beginner to experienced students. In her teaching, she is committed to partnering with students to reach the results they are seeking.
