Susanne Perks

Susanne was born and raised in Vienna (Austria). Always very active and sporty she started focusing on gymnastics at the age of eight when she was spotted at a competition and asked to join the local gymnastics squad. Enthusiasm, hard work and dedication lead to winning some regional titles.

Between the age of 14 and 17 Susanne won a number of national titles and represented Austria at Junior European Championships and World Championships. During this time she suffered from some sports injuries and got introduced to Pilates as part of her injury rehabilitation.

Following some undergraduate studies in sports science Susanne qualified in Export and business languages. She started working for a number of international corporations and moved to England in 1995. Although she spent the last 20 years in corporate roles, spending hours sitting in meetings and at the desk Susanne always stayed physically active.

" After starting a family and moving from London to Oxfordshire I decided to go back to my sporty roots. I retrained as a fitness instructor, personal trainer and Pilates instructor." My aim is it to increase my client's awareness of correct posture and movement patterns. I have worked with people with injuries, post operation, lower back pain or as part of a healthy lifestyle. Seeing my clients' progress and increased well-being is the biggest perk of what I do.

On the other hand my athlete background allows me to work with people who want to enhance the performance in their preferred sport ."

Now having given up office work she fully focuses on sharing her passion and experience how correct physical exercise can enhance your quality of live.

As Body Control qualified Pilates teacher Susanne regularly keeps updating her skill set. She also is a Reps registered certified personal trainer and fitness instructor.

Qualifcations: Myofascial release, Osteoporosis exercise programming, NVQ in older persons Chair based exercise programme, pink ribbon, breast cancer programme.
