"Jessica Schatz is a rock star, a true expert who knows the body better than just about anyone I have ever worked with. I started working out with Jessica a couple of years ago. I had no prior experience with Pilates before starting, in fact I always thought Pilates was designed more for women. I was wrong. Working out with Jessica and incorporating Pilates into my exercise routine has completely changed me, in many ways, some small and some quite significant. Since working out with Jessica, my body is in much better physical condition. My core is stronger than it has ever been before, which really sets the foundation for everything else. And my back (which I badly injured years ago) feels better and more protected than it has in a long time. Jessica’s program is awesome -- it's hard but it's fun, two things that I'm always looking for in a workout. Her technique is great and every session is different and works a completely different part of my body. At the end of every work out I feel amazing and I can feel myself getting stronger.”

“I have done Pilates before so I thought I knew everything there was to know until I did Pilates with Jessica. Her methods and teaching and understanding of Pilates combined with her ability to tailor sport and health specific things to my body was something I’ve never experienced. She was a huge reason why I came back from my Achilles injury the way that I did. She’s a great instructor and teacher and friend!”

“I have recently opened a new business so I have to admit, I have really been slacking on workouts...like, for months. I tried Jessica's video this morning, and I cannot believe how amazing I feel. In just 30 minutes, this workout literally hit every muscle in my body. While I love that I could follow along with the video, I noticed that Jessica's verbal cues were so on point that I didn't need to torque my body in order to look at the screen to be sure I was in the correct position/alignment. Also, it's obvious this series of exercises and the order in which they are performed is very thoughtfully created by someone who really knows the body. I love that this workout incorporated a bit of yoga, Pilates AND strength training for a very well-rounded experience. I was sweating within minutes and could actually feel my abs again! To feel that I have achieved a full body workout in 30 minutes is game changing for me with my busy schedule. I honestly cannot wait to do this workout every day!”
“I was pain free this entire season all thanks to Jessica! From Jessica’s workout I am able to truly eliminate the pain in my lower back with just 20 minutes of my day. These workouts are simple, but so effective. I was able to strengthen my lower back. Therefore it made my posture much better and I was able to carry on my day without any low back pain.”

“I have worked with Jessica for a few years now. I’m a writer, and I spend most of my time at my desk in front of a computer. Jessica has helped me to keep moving, stay limber, and ease the effects of stress. I also spend about three months of each year on the road for book tours and doing research. Working with Jessica has given me the physical stamina and strength to make it through those long, hard, demanding days. Beyond all that, she’s a delight to be around — full of wonderful stories, enthusiasm, and good cheer, especially early in the morning when it’s fair to say I’m not at my sunniest. I would not be able to do what I do — day to day, month to month, year to year — if not for her.”

“Pilates literally saved me as a professional dancer with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. It brought me back to life after getting injured on stage and I never left it throughout my entire dance career. Getting to work with Jessica Schatz was a super special treat for me while travelling to the West Coast on tour. Her dynamic fluidity and strengthening exercises gave me the stability, mobility and freedom I needed to fly on stage at the huge Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Her beauty and sheer happiness shines from deep within and brightens your day no matter how you’re feeling. Thank you so much Jessica! I always look forward to our next session!”

“Jessica always manages to push me just past the level of effort I thought I could sustain, whether in Pilates or yoga. After working with Jessica for just a few months, my core was stronger than it had been for 30 years, even though I have worked out with weights for many years. My golf game has improved dramatically with the additional strength and flexibility from the Pilates/yoga workouts. And, I have managed to avoid injury.”

"Jessica Schatz is THE Core Expert, and her videos are perfect proof. What a refreshing change of pace it is to follow along with her highly professional instructions. This is what fitness should be about, not revving the body to the red line every time you slip on workout pants. It should be a personal exploration and journey into the betterment of you and your body. These videos will be your guide on that journey and never leave your side. Jessica naturally encourages a higher level of body awareness which is something often missing in the realm of fitness. No longer is counting repetitions the main focus. Instead it is drawing the focus inward to the quality of movement, where we struggle to move, and how to conquer those dark areas of motion to achieve a better balanced body. One that is stronger, longer, and less susceptible to the slings and arrows of outrageous sedentary culture."
