    I was fortunate to begin my pilates training with Jessica. I started at an advanced age with back problems and the need to improve my core and over all fitness levels. Jessica was my trainer for three years during which time my posture and balance made dramatic improvement and my core strength was greatly enhances. I went from struggling to do one roll up to doing dozens at a time. My flexibility was also greatly improved.

    We trained 2-3 times a week and Jessica was always developing new exercises and techniques to keep the workout interesting and on edge. Her bubbly personalty was a huge plus so things never dragged. New York City's loss is Westport's gain.
