Jean is a Pilates Instructor, Personal Trainer, Essentrics Instructor and Nutrition Consultant. Jean began her career in fitness in 1994 and became a Pilates instructor in 2001. After many years of running, gymnastics, lifting weights and teaching kickboxing classes, Jean started taking Pilates to rehab her back pain and sacroiliac joint injury. Inspired by the precision and control of Pilates she knew her personal training clients would benefit from Pilates, so she embarked in her first Pilates Instructor Training with Stott Pilates in 2001 and has been teaching Pilates ever since. Pilates is the only method of exercise Jean can practice without reinjury.
