Physical fitness has long been an integral part of Jessica’s life. From the time she was young, she was actively involved in martial arts and school sports such as soccer and volleyball. When she became a wife and mother, physical activity soon took a backseat to attending the needs of her husband and two children. Through Pilates, she discovered a workout that could easily be done at home between part time work, volunteering and keeping up with the challenges of family life. However, Pilates soon developed into a passion as she began to see results and the difference it made in her life. The strength, tone, and peace of mind could not be denied, and the routine was a welcome solace in the midst of a whirlwind schedule and the frenetic pace of life. When Club Pilates opened in Valrico, it was the perfect opportunity for Jessica to expand her practice from the floor to the reformer. Not long after joining the studio as a member, she felt the urge to finally step outside of her comfort zone and turn a passion into a career by becoming a Pilates instructor. This desire led to her joining the teacher training program with the goal of offering the same energizing and life giving self-care she’d discovered through Pilates to others. She has since completed the program and is thrilled to join the staff of the very studio where her journey began.
