What Our Students Say
"I've been exercising for years, and up until now, I never thought I'd find something that I would actually look forward to. Not only am I getting an amazing workout, but I am enjoying what I'm doing as well! What a bonus!!! Thanks for everything, Jac!"
– Lynne Cohen
"I really like the variety of exercises in the Studio Pilates classes which are tailored to each individual and the small group size which gives you almost one-on-one instruction. No two sessions are ever the same! There's so much to know about how my body works in my lessons and the best part is, how good I can feel at 58."
– Madeline Wright, retired teacher
"I am starting to feel stronger in the core which is translating to every part of my body and especially my outlook on life. After a few pretty ordinary years of lower back pain, and a string of people who haven't made any difference I have finally made more progress in the last few weeks that in the previous two years. As a stay at home mom I would usually feel bad taking time out for myself, but I am a better mother , friend and wife because of it."
– Maria Huie, Homemaker
"Being an avid runner, my initial interest with pilates began when I wanted to strengthen my core. What I didn't expect was that I would become more aware of my posture and that enabled me to be injured less and enjoy my sport even more. I take class two times a week and look forward to it, as I don't view it as "exercise" or a place I don't want to go. If I have to miss a class, I'm disappointed because it really gives me a good start to my day, feeling strong and less stiff."
– Debbie Burns, Island Sun Tanning Salons, Owner
"Until now I had not found a workout that I truly enjoyed, so it was difficult to stay focused on results. From the moment my Pilates class with Jackie ends I am already looking forward to the next one."
– Jessica Cohen, Editor, BucksMontStyle.com
"Having been active all my life, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 4 yrs ago. It had gotten to the point I could not lift my young daughter. Pilates with Jackie has been a painless but demanding workout. I now have the strength to lift my daughter without pain, and for one hour a week I can truly focus on my wellbeing."
– Sondra G. Meder, Administrative Director, Abington Memorial Hospital
"Pilates has been a great new addition to my workout schedule. Being a professional athlete, Pilates with Jackie pushes my body in ways I can’t normally get at the gym. Jackie as a teacher is a great motivator and keeps the classes challenging but fun. You will be surprised at what your body can do after only a few lessons! I look forward to training with Jackie when I am home from Europe, during my off-seasons."
– Pam Rosanio, professional athlete, Women's basketball UMass'08; International basketball player currently playing for the Umea Comets in Sweden.
"I began Pilates because a friend told me she loved it. She had back problems and after starting Pilates with Jackie her back problems virtually disappeared. I thought I would give it a try since, I too, had back problems. Well, I no longer have the daily aches and pains in my back. Once in a while I will get a twinge and I will immediately do some Pilates mat work and the pain disappears. It truly is amazing. An added benefit to beginning Pilates - I am in better shape. After having three children, my body no longer was looking quite like it used to. Pilates is helping me to achieve the more defined figure that I have been longing for within the past several years. If you devote some time to Pilates, you will become "addicted" to the way you feel and will want to continue the program."
