Janine is an Exercise Physiologist & Licensed Massage Therapist. She is a second generation, Romana Certified, Pilates Teacher, who has devoted the last 25 years to the practice and study of both traditional and alternative healing therapies for the mind-body. Her focus is on mind-body exercise training, orthopedic bodywork/massage & nutritional wellness.
Her story reveals the passion, training, experience and expertise she brings to her work. A Philadelphia native, Janine was completely devoted to ballet until she was 25, dancing 6 hours day, 5days a week prior to and during her college years. After obtaining her degree in sports medicine at Temple University she “wanted to cure the world.” In pursuit to her path in medicine - orthopedic surgery was her interest - she sustained a spinal injury while rowing on the Schuylkill River - a part time passion. She was advised that surgery was her only mans to relief, but she decided that there had to be a better way. So, upon the advice of a dancer teacher and after seeking advice from a doctor/adviser at the medical college she had been planning to attend, she decided to make a small diversion in her career path and go in search of alternative, non-surgical intervention to help her back pain. This is when she met her teacher and mentor Romana Kryzanowska, and the course of her life and career path as a Pilates Teacher began.
For those of you who have heard of Pilates, but don’t k now what it is, it is a form of corrective exercise developed in the 1930-40’s by Joseph Pilates, a German-born immigrant and inventor. The Pilates Method utilizes specially designed machines to help with body alignment, strength, ﬂexibility, and balance. This exercise form helps relieve back pain and joint stress, stretches and tones muscle, leaving the body feeling lighter, more energized and better aligned.
So in 1990, when step aerobics was all the rage...Janine opened Philadelphia’s first Pilates Studio around Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Word of her skill and the new exercise form spread, and over 15 years she grew her studio to eventually seeing 500 clients per week through classes, private training and specialized workshops. People who knew her work, including concierges at the nearby hotels, would send visiting celebrities to her including Toni Collette, Brice Howard and many others. Her clients included a long list of athletes, coaches and the like, such as Pat Riley, Martina Navratilova and Pat Croce (who said of Janine that she “worked miracles on him”). She also did a lot of work with patients referred by orthopedic surgeons. In 2009 a move and a marriage brought her here. When she decided to create a business, she knew she wanted to be in Camp Hill - it reminds her of Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia “such a great feeling.”
Her studio is fully equipped with Pilates Equipment, Massage area and cardio equipment. There are various exercise machines, but this is not your typical gym - it’s a very relaxing environment. Janine, describes her studio as “an Exercise Boutique that focuses on total health and wellness for a new age in Health Maintenance-Personal Health Care.” She oﬀers personalized Pilates & Corrective Exercise Training, along with lifestyle maintenance services such as therapeutic massage, cardio-conditioning and nutritional consults.
