Meet Our Staff

Jenny Boehmer, Owner & Instructor

I took my first private Pilates session in 1998 at Erskine Fitness in Seattle. Immediately I knew Pilates was exactly what my body had been missing and desperately needed. Pilates addressed the imbalances I had developed through years of playing soccer. Since Pilates has become a regular activity in my life, I have been able to continue a very active lifestyle with minimal injuries and quick recoveries.

Having a fascination with the human body coupled with a newfound love of Pilates, I jumped at the opportunity to become a certified Pilates instructor.

Since becoming certified in 2000, I have worked with men, women, and children of all ages and fitness levels. My goal is to teach Pilates in a way that is fun, effective, and safe.

I offer private Pilates instruction and Reformer classes at a studio in downtown Everett, Washington. If you have any questions about Pilates, or would like to discuss sessions and scheduling, please email or call. I’d love to talk with you.

Susan Foley, Instructor

Susan holds a B.A. in Theater Arts and is trained in Ballroom Dance and instruction. She originally came to Pilates through Lisa Graham, founder and owner of Agile Monkey Pilates in Santa Cruz, California. Pilates taught Susan to work with, rather than against, many of her postural deviations, which she constantly struggled with in her performing arts career. She studied for several years with Jeannette Palmer who inspired and encouraged her to pursue teaching. Susan received her training through Pilates Academy International, with Pilates on Fifth in New York City. She welcomes those of all fitness levels and incorporates modifications appropriate for each individual to ensure that each person is working optimally and safely for their own body, skill level, and background.
