I am Janna Jones and I have lived in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area for most of my life. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and retired in 2016 from a 30+ year career in Business Sales and Management. I fell absolutely in love with Pilates from the moment I stepped into the studio. As a client Pilates helped me become stronger, healthier, happier and less stressed in a minimal amount of time without the fear of injury that comes with a high impact exercise program-needless to say, I was “hooked”. After a brief six month retirement from my Sales career, I signed up and completed the comprehensive Club Pilate’s Teacher Training program and was offered the wonderful opportunity to join the Club Pilate’s team as an instructor. Everyday I look forward to sharing my passion for Pilates and the amazing benefits a Pilates program has to offer regardless of age or level of fitness. Transformations happen quickly and nothing is more exciting or fulfilling to me than witnessing and celebrating those positive changes with my clients. It’s never too late to try Pilates.
Originally from Minneapolis, Mn., Jeni studied dance and theater when at 16yrs old a routine checkup showed a slight curvature in her spine so her doctors decided to fuse her thoracic spine with a titanium rod for prevention of scoliosis. It wasn't until 20 years later she discovered Pilates. Finally an exercise program that didn't limit her because her lack of flexion in her spine. In fact, It was the first time since her younger years she felt as good as she did when she was a dancer. So she decided to become a Pilates Trainer with Pilates Sport Center in Studio City CA. When she moved to Phoenix she deepened her Pilates knowledge by working alongside Chiropractors, PT, massage therapists, and Natural-paths in a rehab setting. Jeni is inspired everyday by people she has met and trained. To be a part of someone’s transformation to a healthier, better body, and to help them reach their goals and have a greater awareness about their body that transcends to their day to day lives is the best reward around! And Club Pilates is the perfect place to do it! I believe working out should be fun and not a chore. With Club Pilates there are so many levels and styles and progressive evolution to the practice you can do it for a lifetime. Whether you are a student or a teacher you can always discover new ways to move, and learn, and in so doing, learn new things about yourself in the process! Something fun about me: I'm a goofball and still a thespian at heart. Any chance I can dress up, like Halloween or Renaissance I'm there! And you don't have to ask me twice to sing karaoke. Even if I don't really know the song.
Kristen is a Registered Dietitian Health Coach and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science from San Jose State University. Kristen has had an avid interest in nutrition and fitness and an unspeakable love for the gym for as long as she can remember. She’s always known that being a fitness instructor was in her future, but until she was introduced to Pilates, she didn’t believe in the exclusive benefits of any one form of exercise enough to invest her time and money into teaching it. She was introduced to mat Pilates at a young age, but it wasn't until January of 2017 that she took her first reformer Pilates class to combat severe sciatica and lower back pain. The love for the reformer was instant and within a month, she dove head first into her Pilates training. Kristen has since used Pilates to enhance her workouts and improve her form in the gym, manage the severe joint pain and inflammation associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and fulfill her long-term dream of becoming a fitness instructor. Kristen believes that Pilates has brought her more understanding of strength and fitness in one year than fifteen years in the gym ever did. She is thrilled to have found the endless benefits of Pilates through her own practice as well as a form of exercise that she is truly passionate about teaching! Kristen strives to create consistently fun, yet challenging workouts and she looks forward to seeing you in one of her classes!
