After my neck surgery last year, I was forced to change my regular workout routine at the gym. Training with Jessica has been interesting, challenging and rewarding. Her expertise in Pilates rehab and attention to detail has helped me regain my mobility, while maintaining my overall strength. It’s been a pleasure working with her!
I had the most incredible booty sessions with Jess, the peach queen. I'm getting ready for my next bikini body competition and its all about the " glute ham tie- in." We worked all of that and they were on fire! I love the way she teaches, her positivity and she made sure I did all the movements correctly. I will definitely be back for more.
Being Older, and fighting my way back to health, I was nervous about being trained. My anxiety was quickly put to rest by Jessica's welcoming professionalism, and subsequent sessions. She took her time, moved me and assisted me in adjusting any of the exercises that needed fine tuning either harder or easier, depending on the muscle group being worked on. I look forward to our next session and finally being able to tie my shoes!
Jessica is one of the finest fitness, health & wellness professionals with whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of training. Following my divorce, I was really struggling with my self esteem. Despite knowing better, I was making poor food choices and not giving my body the movement it craved. I remember feeling stuck in cycle of self-loathing and procrastination. As soon as I was willing to acknowledge that I needed some help - I knew Jess was my girl. Just the act of committing to the first session with Jessica helped me begin to feel better. Jessica didn’t just look at my body and run down a list of exercises to improve my problem areas - she gave me a holistic evaluation including diet, exercise and mindset. I was really impressed with her professionalism and depth of knowledge in each realm. Throughout our workouts and follow up conversations, Jessica was compassionate while still being tough - consistently holding me to a higher standard until I could regain those standards for myself. As a result of our work, I’ve lost 10 lbs, my waist is 2” thinner, my skin has cleared up and I’m finally beginning to feel like myself again. I have more energy, excitement and determination not just for my personal fitness goals, but also for my interpersonal and professional life as well. I’m certainly not perfect, but I definitely found my mojo and got my groove back! I look forward to continuing my training with Jessica. My goals include to lose another 10 lbs, improve my diet and strengthen my left hip for greater biomechanical stability. In turn, I know this journey will help me continue to grow the love and respect for myself.
I met Jessica several years ago, and I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching her blossom into the fitness guru that she is today. I'am a huge lover of Pilates here in Miami and she has a lot to do with that. She taught me form and how to enjoy the process of getting strong. She is super knowledgeable about the body and nutrition and I HIGHLY recommend her. She will totally help transform your SELF. Love you girl! Thanks for everything that you are!
I’m 64 years old and Jessica Guevara has given me the opportunity to enjoy my favorite sport, playing golf again. I now have greater flexibility and a much stronger core without any back pains. Working with Jes, has enabled me to be more in touch with my body. Her in depth knowledge enables her to focus on much needed areas that I would not work on my own. Training with Jessica unique style motivates me with her positive attitude and is a great start for my day.
I’m obsessed! Jessica is by far the best! I have been taking her online class for the past 2 years and I love the way my body looks and feels. I have lower back issues due to sitting at a desk for 10 + hours a day, our sessions have helped me to have no pain, better posture and overall strength. Her welcoming approach and experience is the perfect combination for an amazing Pilates instructor. Her music selection and upbeat personality makes each class unique and fun- her class is the only exercise that I look forward to.
A few years ago I decided to start taking care of myself. I've had numerous injuries to consider, so a friend suggested I try pilates. Well more I was dragged along. I have shocking knees, no cartilage, bulging discs in my back and general injuries, so while I've always been active, my aches and pains causing limps and more held me back. My physical therapist was thrilled when she heard I was going to try pilates. So there I discovered the best thing ever. With the right instructor, I have discovered a new lease on life. It has seriously changed my life. I had so little strength prior. Core strength...what's that? Same with most of my muscles. So now I have not only developed incredible awareness, my strength is great. With all that I have developed and now thrive on, I have dramatically reduced the effects of my injuries. My physical therapist calls me her success story, what Pilates has done for me is more than any treatment could. Building up each muscle group has helped counteract many of my injuries. What's great is that with pilates, I'm able to work around my knee injuries and still create strength without risking their stability. Using resistance, instead of pure weights I have developed fabulous muscle definition also. I have never been happier and I owe it all to Pilates and Jess my amazing teacher.
I am a full time working mother of three. I am 6 1/2 months post partum from natural child birth but I had a C-section with my middle child 2 1/2 years ago and core recovery has been challenging since. I have low back issues so strengthening my core is very important to me and my lower back. Jessica has helped me focus on my core through all types of exercise including Pilates, Yoga, and many other exercises with low weights. I love watching her because her personality is infectious and it really motivates me to work out when I am just exhausted and not feeling it. You can really tell that she loves what she is doing by helping people reach goals and target areas that people HATE working on...like abs! I take her to the gym or my living room and my core is showing results because I can now see definition that I haven't seen in YEARS! My back pain has decreased tremendously and I have more energy to chase my children around. And let's not forget my rear, she has motivated me to work on my booty and I am actually loving it! I am anxious to see that she is going to give me a booty! Thanks Jess!.
Jessica is one of my all-time favorite Pilates and barre instructors - her classes are pacey and varied (we often use ALL the props). Every body part is targeted (very well, according to my overall “soreness” afterward), she selects excellent music and is forever smiling. Jessica trained me when I was new to Pilates and barre and was friendly and took time to correct me in a way that didn’t make me feel silly, which I really appreciated in those first months. As a middle-aged person who has always been very fit, I’d let myself slip for the two years previous to starting barre - the changes it wrought on my body were incredible! My bum perked up almost immediately, my upper abdomen quickly pulled back in, and I have shape in my legs that I was never able to attain with running and weight training - not quite dancer legs, but something resembling them. Jessica’s popularity amongst clients and staff alike attest to her generous spirit, incredible energy, a delightful sense of humor, and most importantly, her knowledge of biomechanics and the corrections barre and Pilates can offer.
In the last couple of months that I have worked with Jess she has not only made me more aware of what I should and should not eat, but listened intently to my concerns on where I wanted to be toned and overall weight loss. She has been mindful of my limitations always ensuring that I stretch before and after a workout. I have seen the transformation/definition in my arms, mid-back, shoulders, legs and waistline and have become very strong. My goal was to lose five pounds, become toned and get strong, all of which I have achieved with her help. I am 62 years old, and have become flexible and will continue to work with her so that I can get stronger. With Jess I do Pilates, Yoga and circuit training and at the same time enjoy her company, we laugh a lot and I have fun.
Jessica is a true fitness professional. I've known and been taking class with her for four years. I was new to the Pilates practice and was always trying to learn more. Jessica was always supportive and offering her knowledge to me. I started taking lecture/demo classes to learn more. Jessica not only showed me the specifics in movement but was supportive when I felt insecure. As an instructor, Jessica stands out to me because of the faster pace of the transitions in her classes. I find this unique and challenging. My heart rate increases as we move through her creative choreography. Jessica's talent and passion for Pilates and fitness makes me want to always do my best. Every part of my body is always worked to the max in her classes. Jessica inspires, motivates, and gives her clients solid results. And did I mention, she's HILARIOUS!!!!!! A million stars to this girl!!!
Yes to Jess! Jessica has been instrumental in my rehabilitation. She's helped me navigate previous injuries including creating tailored workouts that strengthen my weakest areas. I have struggled for years with neck and pack pain and Jess taught me how to slow down and rebuild to a healthier body. Not to mention she makes you feel sexy AF! Love this woman and her support!
I am 69 years old, and before working with Jess, I had pain in my shoulders and couldn't do movements involving rotations. My sciatica would flare up all the time, and I had achy knees during exercises. After working with Jess, I'm more aware of my overall posture, and I have more movement in my shoulders. The sciatic has been less activated as I have fortified the gluteal muscles through the exercises we do in Pilates. I feel physically stronger, and I have more stamina.
Jessica is amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable and really makes the hour fun. Definitely recommend her if you are trying to take your Pilates to the next level or if you're a beginner she makes it simple and easy to follow nice progression into new moves but still challenging. Thank you.
Truly one of the best Pilates Instructors, I have ever had! I have had the pleasure of knowing Jess for over 3 years... I highly recommend bother her group classes and private classes.
Jessica’s energy and humor keeps the workout fun and exciting, all the while pushing you to your limits, distracting you from that burn in your muscles. She has the exceptional ability to give precise instructions, making sure you are aligned and aware. I’ve been training with Jessica for over five years, and have dramatically improved my strength, alignment, posture and core. I leave each session sweaty, stronger, and with a boost of confidence. I look forward to advancing my techniques and abilities under Jessica’s guidance. Her magnetic personality and passion for her profession are obvious to all. Love you Jessica!
Jessica is the most wonderful Pilates teacher! If you get the opportunity to work out with her, TAKE IT! Her positive attitude is contagious, and she really inspires each of her students to push his/ her limits while staying mindful of injuries.
Jess Guevara is TOP! She is knowledgeable, encouraging, professional, upbeat and friendly. Jessica helped increase my balance and core strength, in particular. She incorporates the perfect blend of strenuous exercise and increasing flexibility. I have benefited both physically and mentally while training with Jess and I can easily say she is the best Pilates Instructor I have ever had!
A year ago, if you were to give me a choice between eating vat of chocolate and exercise, I would have gone for the chocolate every time. That was before I started Barre with Jess, who encouraged me to challenge myself and strengthen my body in a fun and healthy way. Unlike a lot of teachers in group classes, Jess takes the time to get to know her clients and what their bodies are capable of, so you know each class will push you to your limit and leave you wanting more. Jess is a ball of energy and positivity and makes every session unmissable. If you’re looking to make changes and get great results, Jess is your girl!
I've known Jess for a decade and I recommend her to anybody dealing with low back pain. I'm a full time chef and I spend long hours standing in the kitchen and traveling around the world opening my restaurants. After many years of standing and traveling for work, my low back pain caught up to me. My low back pain was killing me and this was affecting my day to day life.I realized I needed to prioritize my health and I asked Jess for help. Since I've worked with Jess my low back pain is gone and my core is much stronger.
I love training with Jessica. Her energy is always on point. She is highly motivating and beautiful on the inside and out. Her routines are always different and effective! She really knows how to kill your Glutes. Highly recommend her to anyone who’s serious about getting in shape.
I am a 54-year-old film producer/businessman and single dad who wants to keep fit and look good. I used to work out and go jogging, cycling, and swimming. Pilates has changed my life. What I get out of it vastly exceeds any other form of exercise. JGP workouts develop your tone, your posture, your gut, rather than creating bulging muscles, shoulders, or chest, which inevitably add to one’s “bulk.”I feel slimmer, more toned, and standing more proud than for any time before I began with the training program by Jessica Guevara. I no longer suffer back problems or pain. The strengthening of the core is vital to protect against injuries from normal life. Jess’s style and expertise is and her knowledge of the body, what exercises work with which muscles, and how to communicate this precisely and succinctly. She’s very inspiring!"
