Jeanne Missey Osgood

Hello fitness enthusiasts, I have been teaching fitness since the mid 80's and certified with ACE since 1987; so I have been around for a long time. I have owned several fitness businesses over the past 25 years, worked in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg as a fitness specialist, worked as the Fitness Director of Campus Recreation at the University of Arizona and for The Academy Village retirement community. Currently, I own and operate a Pilates studio in Tucson called the Tucson Pilates Lab and offer a teacher training program for Pilates and other genres of movement for instructors learning how to teach called the Arizona Pilates Academy. I have created two DVD packages for instructor trainees, a chair fitness program for older adults called Total Fitness and Pilates Teacher Training, a 6 DVD, 2 CD package for learning both Mat Pilates and Pilates on the apparatus. You can find them on my website, totalfitnessllc.com.
