Tutor: Marion Claridge

Marion has been teaching a variety of Group Fitness Classes at the NSCC for 13+ years. Whether your been a student for X number of years, or you’re a relatively new student, you will always find Marion’s classes inviting, encouraging, and with a whole lot of laughter along the way. Marion believes fitness is for everybody and everyBODY!  Marion started her teaching  journey years ago, after attending an awesome ‘ free style ‘ aerobic class at a gym. It got her hooked on not only attending this particular class regularly, but also lit her passion to qualify as a ‘free style ‘ teacher herself. (Teaching ‘free style ‘ gives Marion more freedom over her choreography and music choice, instead of a more structured teaching program). Her leg warmers and leotard may be at the back of the closet now, but grapevines and easy walks are still front and centre in most of her classes, and if not, still expect a playlist from the Bee Gees to Justin Bieber and everything in between.
