ROC Pilates Instructors

Christine Szymanski FoundeR/owner

Certified Pilates instructor

Founder of ROC Pilates, Christine Szymanski, started her pilates journey 13 years ago when she tried a reformer class for the first time and knew she was hooked.  She pursued her comprehensive Pilates certification through ITT at A Body of Work with Jean Sullivan and has been teaching in Marin ever since.  Being an active athlete herself and recognizing a gap in the Pilates and fitness industries for athletic, fun, yet true pilates for the fitness inclined of all ages, she set out to fill that gap with her unique flowing athletic Pilates method.  In November 2019, she opened ROC Pilates in San Rafael, CA.   The studio offers both tailored privates/duets for individual attention and multi-level group reformer classes.


Our mission at ROC Pilates is to understand your current level of fitness whether you are a newbie to pilates, recovering from injury or an avid athlete and to help you reach your next fitness level by safely building your core, strength and flexibility.   The method is designed to take your tennis, golf, cycle/spin, cross training, flexibility and running game to the next level and help return your body to its center.
