Beatrix Sullivan-Hoppe's career in the field of fitness began in the 1980's while in college where she was a physical education major and worked as a fitness instructor at a local resort in Upstate NY. As a student of ballet since the age of 9 and then involved in sports throughout high school this was a natural progression for her. She became a personal trainer while living on the Big Island in 2006 and then a STOTT PILATES® instructor within a year of moving to Maui in 2009. She has advanced training on all Pilates equipment and brings her diverse background into play as well her attention to detail and safety during her classes and private sessions. She is passionate about fitness and Pilates and loves sharing this passion with everyone who comes her way.
