About Janine
Welcome! My name is Janine. I am so happy you are here! I can't wait for you to experience the magic of  Pilates.

I have always had a deep love of sport, an eye for good movement, and a passion for helping people live active lives. It was natural for me to work in the fitness industry, but after competing a degree in Human Kinetics, and many certifications in Personal Training, I felt something was missing. 

I noticed a huge gap between what people where doing in the gyms and what was actually safe, effective and functional for their body. I saw a lot of poor form and dangerous exercises, even while instructors were present. I wanted to be different.

So I went looking for a better model. One that addresses the strength, function and mobility needs of an individual in a balanced way to support their whole body health. People like new moms needing to heal their core, office workers suffering with back pain, weekend warriors with extremely stiff and imbalanced bodies. I wanted to help empower these people with clear information and better results.

Then I found Pilates! I fell in love with the science and intelligence of its mind-body principles, which lay a clear foundation for proper alignment, and the importance of training the whole person.  

These all important principles cover: core and pelvic floor strengthening, the power of breathing, improving mobility of the spine, improving shoulder and hip function; all to improve posture and the body's ability to move with good alignment, and with balance, resilience and stability.

There is a reason Pilates is the #1 rehabilitation method for new moms and people with back pain around the globe, and is a part of many athletes conditioning and rehabilitation programs. Pilates really does have your back (and much more)! 

Now with over 20 years experience as a Certified Pilates Teacher and Golf Fitness Instructor, I help students understand and apply these principles so they can heal, strengthen and balance their bodies.  

My current programs include group classes and one-on-one lessons for beginners to athletes. New students start with The Pilates Foundation, more experienced movers can join my Flexible Strength Series, and enthusiastic golfers can get ready for a great season by joining my Fit For Golf program. 

If you have any questions about if a program is right for you, or you would like to register for an upcoming session, email me at janine@pilatesfunction.com.

I look forward to helping you live your best, active life!
