My name is Susan Mann. I am a Physical Therapist, Pilates Instructor and Health Coach. I love staying active (I go on walks as often as I can!), cooking and trying new recipes, and teaching my two dogs new tricks. I have a YouTube channel under the same name, Best Self for Health, where I explain in more detail tips and tricks to stay active and healthy, both physically and mentally. My lighthearted outlook has helped me face adversity head-on and enjoy life as much as I can. I live strongly through the convictions of prayer, meditation, deep diaphragmatic progressive breathing, gratitude, and self-affirmations.

My Passion

In 2001, a business partner and I started a Pilates studio in Naples, Florida, to service the local community. After substantial success, a second Pilates location was opened. My passion for processes that lead to a polished product is a system I love introducing to others through Health Coaching and other mediums, such as Physical Therapy and Pilates. Personal growth and development start with looking at the hardest parts of the equation and finding innovative solutions to stick with them long-term. I am constantly working on my own personal health and wellness habits and behaviors to make a positive change. I am passionate about working through the continuum of care to help people feel better, look better, and stay better. 

This Is Where YOU Come In!

As your potential new Health Coach, I want to thank you for trusting me with your journey. Having the opportunity to help others is a role I do not take lightly. I enjoy seeing the transformation as clients discover the pieces of the puzzle they didn’t realize were missing. I work with you to establish what your needs are and use behavioral counseling techniques to motivate you. In your sessions, we’ll draw on past successes to believe with the steps used; they can happen again. It brightens my day knowing I played a direct part in helping another person navigate through an often stressful progression. So let’s get to work; click the button so we can get started!
