Suzie F.

Originally from Atlanta, Suzanne grew up with a love for ballet. She spent her college and post-college years in Charleston enjoying the beach and working in a nationally recognized event planning and design firm. Her family brought her back to Atlanta and on a whim, in the spring of 2013, Suzie applied to be a Pure Barre Teacher and shortly after became the President of Pure Barre Operations & Marketing for Burton Franchise Partners, opening a total of 14 locations in and around the Atlanta area. Based on her extensive teaching experience, she joined the Pure Barre Corporate Training Team, in 2015, as a Master Trainer; a position that only twelve hold out of a community of over 5,000 teachers. Then in 2017, she decided to step away from her operational role to focus full time on being a Master Trainer, completing her Pilates Reformer certification, and while looking for a way to get back to her entrepreneurial roots. She knew she wanted back into the local Atlanta fitness scene and began looking for a concept that embodied everything she loves about fitness and AKT was it. Suzie and her husband, Michael, welcomed a baby girl, Yves, in October of 2021. When not at AKT or Pure Barre you can find the family of three (along with their two rescue pups, Lance and Ace) hanging out with friends in one of the many local in-town neighborhood restaurant patios.
