Meet Jennie Groom of Studio Flo Pilates in Bay Ho

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennie Groom.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Jennie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Originally from San Diego, I moved to Los Angeles and majored in dance at Loyola Marymount University, where I was also encouraged to pursue a certification in Pilates. I fell in love with the Pilates method right away, which then lead me to a career teaching throughout LA and Chicago. I was personally chosen by Lolita San Miguel, one of the only two people known to have been certified by Joseph Pilates, to participate in her Pilates Master Mentor Program. That program gave me the confidence to open my own Pilates studio based on the traditional teachings of Joseph Pilates.

I opened Studio Flo Pilates in 2014. I named the studio after my grandmother, Flo, who exemplified a woman standing on her own two feet. Flow is also one of the Pilates principles based on the premise of moving with purpose.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My journey as a business owner in San Diego has been relatively smooth. What I find most challenging is finding the balance of clients who just want a workout to those who really want to dive deep into the Pilates Method and dissect and analyze each movement.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Studio Flo Pilates – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Studio Flo Pilates is based on preserving and teaching traditional Pilates and creating a welcoming and encouraging space for everyBODY. We offer several types of classes at multiple levels utilizing traditional Pilates apparatus. All of our teachers have 600+ training hours and we offer an extensive continuing education program as well as monthly clinics and workshops for clients to broaden and enhance their practice.

I am most proud of the community that Studio Flo Pilates has created. We are a family. Clients become friends and everyone encourages each other. Whether it’s a wedding, babies, sickness, or rehabilitation, everyone supports one another.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Considering we just moved to a brand new space in 2017, we are staying put in beautiful Bay Ho.
