Francesca Gorgone

Hello there! I’m Francesca. I’ve been a fitness professional for over 12 years living all over from Hong Kong to Boston, New York, Connecticut and DC. I am a Certified Pilates Instructor and always learning more through continuing education. My Philosophy focuses on training the body and mind. I encourage a sustainable lifestyle mix of fitness, healthy eating and good positive attitude. A happy and healthy life is a lifelong sport and for that reason, my approach concentrates on lifestyle.

I began my Pilates journey after a shoulder injury and began studying the contemporary/west coast style of Body Arts and Science International (BASI), a method favored by healthcare and fitness professionals. I completed the full apparatus training.

During a visit to New York and attending a teacher training class with Master Teacher, Alicia Ungaro, I recognized a gap in my training and personal practice. I decided to learn the Classical Method as taught originally by Joseph Pilates. I spent a summer in NYC and completed an Intensive Bridge Program at Power Pilates.

Francesca is passionate about creating a change in her clients whether through posture awareness, or body change. Her teaching style focuses on strengthening through correct alignment based on anatomical knowledge.

I’m a competitive runner and have completed numerous Marathons including New York. I love all styles of workouts from soulcycle to yoga to boxing. I practice Pilates anytime I can.
