What is it like to work with Jacquelyn? Here's what the clients have to say...

"When life hands you lemons, Helios helped me make lemonade! I entered a year ago skeptical that my back problem with sciatica would resolve, thinking my career was over, I was practically in tears. Jacquelyn, nursed me from a sad bundle of pain back into the powerful woman I once was.  I have no sciatic pain at all. I am extremely happy with her caring and careful management of my training. I am so lucky to have found her, and recommend Jacquelyn o everyone I know. All I can say it thank you." -Carey L. Chicago, IL

"I have attended Jacquelyn’s Pilates classes as well as her Joseph Pilates Calisthenics class for several years and cannot recommend her highly enough.  Her work has made me feel stronger, healthier and happier.  Jacquelyn combines hard exercise with a hawkish attention to form that ensures that we all get the most out of class while avoiding what can be the pitfalls of strenuous training.  Her knowledge of the body’s mechanics and her attention to detail make her classes enjoyable, productive and challenging.  Strangely, I look forward to awakening at the crack of dawn for class and miss the early mornings when I am traveling and must miss class.  Jacquelyn is a true pro who will push you to a better place physically and mentally."

"Jacquelyn is among the most talented Pilates instructors I have ever worked with. A lifelong student of the human body, she’s incredibly knowledgeable of the musculoskeletal, nervous, and digestive systems, and she never stops seeking new information to help with each of her student’s unique circumstances. Jacquelyn designs workouts for your personal fitness goals, as well as your body’s needs on any given day. She reinforces a foundation of proper form, while always pushing you toward the next rung in terms of your own capabilities. And with the enthusiasm a passion she brings to every one of her sessions, her workouts always feel great – even when they hurt. Working with Jacquelyn, I have achieved my peak fitness." -Kelley K. Chicago, IL.

I have belonged to an elite and pricey fitness club for 5 years and because of my move decided to try a new studio. I had come to a realization that one of the best fitness trainers in Chicago was not at the club it was at Helios. Jacquelyn has a passion to want to make people look great and feel great. My body has changed because of her and never looked better." -Lakesha R. Chicago, IL.
