As a lifelong dancer and fitness enthusiast, Jillian Dreusike always looked for ways to extract elements from her dance training and present them in the context of a total-body fitness class. In 2010, she founded bodyLogic to do just that, mixing ballet-based choreography with barre work and the use of resistance bands to create an original fitness system. On her website she’s quoted as saying, "You only get one body, so be sure you know how to work it the right way." She embraces this philosophy in every class, keeping group sizes to 10 or fewer students in order to provide personal attention for each participant. She ensures that her charges perform each movement in the healthiest way possible, reinforcing the way the body naturally works, to build muscle and endurance—such as keeping the spine straight when standing or keeping the pinky lifted when pretending to drink.
