In her spare time, Penelope loves to hike the Berkshires and take ballet classes. This along with safe Pilates helps her maintain strong bones! Penelope’s sons, now 20 & 22 years old pretty much grew up in her Pilates studios. They would complain that she was “too healthy” but now they have seen how much it has changed so many people’s lives, fitness levels, and confidence about their health.
