Francesca is the best. What a difference she has made in my life. I have been guided by her in Pilates (mat and machines), Boot Camp and Personal Training session for about 4 years. She knows how to work every part of the body, every muscle just right. My strength has improved dramatically. I am stronger now than ever before. You will be impressed.

I have worked with Francesca for nearly three years!!!! What a differnce she has made in my life!!! When I began, I did not really know what Pilates involved. Francesca started me out gradually until I became more confident. I look forward to each session because I am getting so much stronger!!! She takes a personal interest in each of her clients and addresses their individual needs. I could go on and on but you need to find this out for yourself She is the absolute best!!!!!

I have worked with Francesca for three years. I have gone from strength building to weight loss, cardio boot camp and I'm now practicing yoga. Pilates training with her has really helped my yoga practice and I will continue to train with her. Personally, I've gone through many changes in my fitness goals and Francesca changes along with me every time. She works with where ever you are today and will change with your change every time. People tell me that I look thinner since I started working with Francesca. I highly recommend her.

I have been privileged to be a student of Francesca for a couple of years. Wow! I have benefitted from the wonderful Pilates sessions, and have had people stop me to ask what I am doing to be so fit ! It's "Francesca"!! Francesca is committed, and makes sure every exercise is precisely done. I am so very fortunate to have the privilege of exercising under Francesca's expert tutelage, and hope anyone who is really willing to work can have an opportunity to experience her expertise. I cannot say enough good things... She's a wonderful person, and she cares.

I have worked with Francesca both in mat Pilates classes at Fitness First in Reston and in private sessions in her home studio. She is friendly, professional, and caring. Her extensive training is evident and she does well working with a range of ages and abilities in group classes. She keeps everyone motivated and is herself an excellent role model for health and fitness.
