Instructor Trainer
JESSICA GUERCIO is co-owner and manager of the Pilates Studio of Central Ohio. Her father, Bruce Guercio, established the Studio in Dublin in 1999. After experiencing success with the program, Mr. Guercio opened a second location in Gahanna in 2000, now under new ownership.

After an injury damaging his left sacro-iliac joint Bruce began pilates as rehab in 1998. Bruce continued his study and was accepted into the STOTT PILATES Education Program that same year. He opened his first studio location in 1999 and his daughter Jessica joined the staff January 2000. Within the next three years Jessica completed her STOTT PILATES Full Certification Education and Training in Matwork

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
