"What I love about pilates is it's ability to meet you where ever you are at physically. Whether you are brand-new to fitness or a fitness expert, an athlete or recovering from an injury, young or young at heart. Pilates can improve your life. Its more than movement, it's confidence". - Mindy Camboia
Jenn’s first exposure to Pilates was ten years ago, when she began Pilates-based rehabilitation at the St. Francis Hospital Center for Sports Medicine. Jenn’s appreciation for Pilates grew through her own recovery from several chronic injuries sustained while performing classical ballet. Working with dance medicine specialists at St. Francis inspired her to utilize Pilates apparatus to help others heal.
While studying with Balanced Body University, Jenn earned her certificate in Pilates Mat, and most recently, her Pilates Comprehensive Teaching Credential from Body Arts and Science International (BASI). Jenn has degrees in Kinesiology and Natural Science from Sierra College in Rocklin, and has completed coursework in ACE Personal Training, Anatomy & Physiology and Injury Prevention.
Jenn’s teaching style centers around correct muscle activation, proper alignment, and full body awareness. She draws upon her knowledge of human anatomy and personal experience with rehabilitation, to relate with and help clients to improve their overall health and wellness.
