Shortly after Jackie began her Pilates training in August 2014, she suffered a debilitating knee injury. She underwent surgery in February 2015, which motivated Jackie to dedicate herself to Pilates training and practice. Through this experience, Jackie learned how Pilates could help her live and move post-knee injury.
With that determination, Jackie became a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher and a qualified Balanced Body® Comprehensive Pilates instructor. She continues to expand her training through earning her certification as a Buff Bones® instructor. Jackie also is certified in several Les Mills™ programs, including BodyJam, BodyVive, and CXWorx; as well as certifications in Aqua Zumba®, Zumba®, and VBarre.
Jackie still enjoys teaching dance fitness classes where members of all skill levels are inspired to move. As the Pilates coordinator, Jackie wants members to discover the benefits of the Pilates Reformer to help them move better and discover their true strengths and abilities.
Jackie’s Success Stories
Jackie is experienced, knowledgeable, certified instructor, tailoring my sessions to my individual goals and needs. She listens carefully and never forgets. She respects my feelings and limitations and applauds my successes and progress. Jackie has helped me to work on flexibility, muscle strength and most importantly my CORE. Although I have always been active, I have disguised my injuries and problem spots. My core is weak from years of neglect. Jackie has come to my rescue! Recognizing my longtime problems and creating a program of very specific exercise for me to address my personal weaknesses. Using the Pilates Reformer, Jackie adapts and modifies all exercise to fit my body size and level of ability on that particular day! I have increased the strength, tone and flexibility of my neck, hips and back. My posture is much better and my overall mind/body awareness has improved. A long way to go – but now I have the inspiration to continue to try!
