All make up classes must be arranged with the instructor. Make up classes are only an option if advanced notice is given and there is space in a class during the same 8 week session. Pilates Plus Fitness sessions are non-refundable, nor transferable. This is to be fair to all, as there are only 15 spaces in a class and sometimes there are wait lists.

You will leave class feeling rejuvenated. Lengthened and strengthened. Challenging movement is by choice. You decide how far you want to go.
Do not wear any bracelets or watches, please. Fitted, comfortable fitness clothing works well. Long sleeves are not recommended. Athletic shoes are required for the Body Tone classes. No footwear is needed for the Pilates Classes.
Muscle strengthening and lengthening! Toned abdominal muscles without adding bulk. Improved Posture! The movements are designed to strengthen the muscles and increase flexibility. The best part is that it works for young and old alike. The Pilates abdominal exercises require mental concentration along with coordinated breathing. This promotes balanced strength and agility in your body. One of the main benefits of Pilates is that it refreshes your physical and mental wellbeing. Pilates is a series of controlled movements that unite the body and mind and creates a direct connection to the muscles. You will condition your body without punishing it.
We are open to all fitness levels and to all shapes and sizes! I can modify exercises to accommodate individual fitness levels. Some students have never even tried Pilates before. The classes are known for the quality of instruction, quality of content and the challenging physical workouts. By the end of your 8 week session you will feel better and look better, and have learned a full routine.
We start off with warm up moves, proper posture and the breathing technique. The exercises will have you standing taller than ever. Posture and the starting positions are as important to each exercise, as all of the movements combined. Most of the warm up moves are done very slowly at first and you may be tempted to rush through them. Don’t! The slow movement is intended to develop power, stamina and skill. We continue with various isolative movements that strengthen the local stabilizers of the joints. Form and technique are very important and will be cued throughout every exercise. We will perform exercises on a mat, using our own body resistance and therabands. You do not need shoes. You will need your own Theraband and 2 lb toning ball. Please bring a mat, towel and bottle of water to every class. Participants may take a break; if needed, at any time.
Yes. Of course! This class is challenging, however, different options are given for each move and fitness level. So whether you are a beginner or experienced, you will get a great workout and be able to participate at your own pace. These segments can also be modified to accommodate each individual's needs and ability. The idea is to come, be challenged and push yourself to YOUR highest ability. The moves in this class take a few times to get used to as they are very unique. The results if you stick with it? An amazingly fit, toned and strong body like never before!

“My goal for Brookville Fitness is to provide a fun, safe and non-judgmental environment for women in the community to exercise and have fun. It is well known that giving your body new challenges keeps it changing and stops you from hitting that "plateau" that we are all too familiar with. I’ve been helping people break through physical and psychological barriers to achieve life-changing levels of self esteem, strength, energy, flexibility and ‘balanced’ fitness for over twenty six years!“-- Susan Capone
"Expert, well-structured classes in a convenient, affordable country setting your body thanks you every day for treating it so well!"
"“I have been attending pilates classes with Susan for 3 years and have loved every moment of it. I have found that doing Pilates has dramatically helped me in many different areas of my life...everything from increased strength and endurance to my ability to concentrate on my breathing in order to keep myself calm in stressful situations. Due to my increased core strength I am able to ski better, run longer and generally feel better about myself. I think that anyone of any age can do pilates and feel great. Susan is engaging and attentive to all participants helping to ensure proper technique to maximize the benefits of her class. I love her classes and look forward to each and every one.”
"“Susan at Brookville Fitness is an excellent fitness instructor! Not only is she very knowledgeable about Pilates and fitness generally, she also gives easy to follow instructions during class, and is always motivating. Susan really cares about her students, and encourages everyone to work at their own pace during the classes. I like the fact that she seeks feedback often from participants to ensure that she is satisfying everyone’s fitness needs. There is always a range of ages and fitness levels in the classes, and Susan works hard to make sure that everyone is meeting their objectives. I recommend Susan’s classes to everyone- no matter what your current fitness level.”
