The Pilates Place Studios is life-transforming! When I first started taking classes at The Pilates Place Studios (south beach location), I was a physical mess. A year of serious operations and hospitalizations had left me weak, bent over, and barely able to walk. I felt like I had aged 20 years. Although I was determined to get better, when I arrived at The Pilates Place Studios, I could not even lie down on the Trap Table without a wedge for support. But Jackie was undaunted.

Jackie is extremely knowledgable about the body, and began carefully working with me, never pushing my body beyond its capabilities. Slowly and surely, she guided me into recovery. Plus the workouts are fun! I always leave feeling better than I arrived.

After a year of working out with Jackie three times a week, I have been able to go back to work, and play with my granddaughter. I can walk two miles a day (on the beach!), my endurance has improved dramatically, and I can stand up straight. I still have a long way to go, but The Pilates Place Studios literally transformed my life!
