Sue Merren has called Grand Cayman home for over 18 years. She spent the first several years of her career in the corporate world in Vancouver, Canada, before moving to the island to pursue her passion for health and fitness before turning it into an amazing, lifelong career. She is now the owner/operator of Balance Cayman, a boutique-style studio specializing in Pilates and functional fitness.
Sue’s certifications include STOTT® Pilates, ACE® Personal Trainer, TRX®, Precision Nutrition Coach L2, and several other specialty certifications. She has also completed the BASI Pilates Pro-Bridge and Mentor programs to further expand her Pilates teaching skills. Sue has spent many years teaching and crafting her own unique spin on Pilates (while still remaining true to the fundamentals) and functional training, and continues to explore new ways to challenge herself and her clients.
Her teaching style is fun, compassionate, and professional. Sue truly believes that movement is medicine for the mind, body, and spirit, and loves to see her clients thrive when they can honestly see and feel the changes that the right exercise program combined with a positive mindset can bring. As a business owner, wife, and parent, Sue can also relate to the challenges that so many of us face on a daily basis in terms of juggling careers, personal health, leisure time, nutrition, and the demands of having a family, and helps her clients find ways to make it all work. Her contagious enthusiasm and dedication to living a balanced and healthy lifestyle motivates her clients to become their personal best.
Sue is also a former professional Figure Athlete, and has earned both WNBF and IFPA pro cards. She is proud of the fact that she is a natural athlete and credits her success to the Pilates method as the foundation to her fitness lifestyle. The Pilates method has allowed her to train hard and remain strong throughout her career.
When she’s not at the studio teaching clients and classes, she loves to spend her free time with her husband & son and enjoying all that the island lifestyle has to offer.
