Jody Merrill


The road to being a fitness studio instructor and owner has been a fun one. Jody began participating in endurance events such as marathons and triathlons after losing her mother to cancer 10 years ago. The goal was always raise as much money as possible for cancer charities. Through that goal she experienced many injuries along the way and knew she had to do something other than swim, bike and run if she wanted to achieve her fitness and fundraising goals. It was out in San Diego that she discovered SPX Fitness and everything changed. It was not easy for her but she felt and noticed results and made it through the triathlon season injury free for the first time. When life drew her back to Boston she knew that there was nothing quite like SPX, so she brought it back with her. Jody launched Boston Pilates Plus in Lexington, MA December of 2010. She has enjoyed spreading this workout with suburbia and is even more excited to bring it to the downtown area with the launch of her second studio, B-Tone Fitness on Newbury St.
