After the surgeries and treatments that helped her overcome breast cancer, Kathy Jannino-Faino lost some of the range of motion she had cultivated as a part-time fitness instructor. Rehabilitating on the Reformer—Pilates’s signature resistance apparatus—she discovered a workout that she loved enough to turn into a full-time career. She now helms 3 of her own welcoming, friendly, and professional pilates studios, where she and her team offer Private & Duet training, and Small Group Apparatus classes that strengthen, rehabilitate and tone.
Beyond Pilates, the studio’s staff members also teach interval-format TRX, Stick-Barre classes that fuse Pilates with sports conditioning to firm specific problem areas. For a class that incorporates more intensive cardio, students can participate in fast-paced circuit pilates workouts that jet from Reformer work to barre exercise to TRX suspension training inspired by Hitchcock films.
