Jan was born in Pittsburgh and attended college at the University of Maryland. After living in Chicago and NYC she moved to Bergen County in 1999 and began taking fitness classes in the area. Jan is a Stott certified Pilates trainer and has been teaching pilates since 2012. She is also trained in TRX. Jan loves a challenge and trying different kinds of workouts. She ran the 1998 New York City Marathon with a torn meniscus (the end of her brief running career) and has since found a passion for weight training, spinning and Pilates. After suffering from several injuries Jan started Pilates and was hooked. She found that this specific training helped her heal her injuries and bring balance to the body. Jan decided to turn her passion for fitness and her satisfaction of helping others into a career. She really enjoys training both groups and individuals and absolutely loves building relationships with her clients.
