Lucy McCarthy
Mother of five and grandmother of seven, Lucy and her husband, Paul, came to Fairbanks in 1964. Lucy began Pilates with Ann Turner in 2002 to help with serious back problems associated with a spinal fracture. She credits Pilates with providing her a method to increase and maintain her flexibility and physical health, as she grows older, a gift she is eager to share with others. In 2011 she became a certified instructor in the Peak Pilates system under the instruction of teacher trainer Shauna Laszlo. More recently, January 2013, she certified as a Level II instructor in Peak Pilates.

She is currently teaching privately at Downtown Pilates as she continues her education through Peak and continues to train under Ann Turner Johnson.

Lucy is also an award winning fiber artist specializing in hand dyed clothing and art quilts. In addition to Pilates she loves running, hiking, cross-country skiing, bicycling and trekking around the world.
Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.
