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.
Fitness is a great way to stay healthy. Exercising on a regular basis has countless benefits for the body and the mind. Fitness goals can range from developing flexibility, to building strength, losing extra pounds to de-stressing. I have a passion for helping my clients feel excellent inside and outside. I’m a competitive runner and have completed numerous Marathons including New York. I love to cycle indoor and outside, and practice Pilates anytime I can.
