marielle suddarth

Operations Director and coach of The New Beginnings Center, Marielle's coaching background originated in competitive ballroom and Latin dance.  During her undergraduate studies in the UK, Marielle competed on the Oxford University Dancesport ‘A team’, and upon graduation returned to Nashville where she coached students and competed professionally.  After shifting her focus from dance, to working a classic 9-5, Marielle stumbled upon The New Beginnings Center and took part in the twelve-week program in hopes to regain some level of fitness.  However, Marielle found much more than an amazing fitness and wellness program, she additionally rediscovered her love for technique, physical activity, health, and coaching!  Now a certified personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Marielle is passionate about helping women achieve and maintain a healthy body, and of equal importance, a healthy body image.

Jeff Wolfe 

Personal trainer and wellness coach with over 15 years experience facilitating improved quality lives - Jeff has been coaching with The New Beginnings Center for 2 years.  Prior to joining the New Beginnings coaching team, Wolfe designed and operated a successful healthy lifestyles program for a local Nashville medical center which serves the working uninsured. His passion lies in meeting individuals where they are in life and effectively encouraging them to believe in themselves.

After coaching at the New Beginnings main location on Craighead Street, New Beginnings founder, Tash Weddle, challenged Wolfe to begin two satellite programs to better reach undeserved communities. In 2016, New Beginnings launched a satellite program at first, Martha O'Bryan Center in East Nashville.  Shortly afterwards, a second location began at St. Luke's Community House in West Nashville.  Today Wolfe is achieving outstanding results at both of these locations.
