Book With Jen

Jen Drolet

Location:  Congress Park & Highlands Studio  |  Classes:  Pilates

Jen was a loyal and longtime pH7 client before purchasing the studio in 2018. Tight hamstrings and a desire to counterbalance her love of running with the benefits of Pilates originally led her to the studio. Four marathons, a baby and two hip surgeries later, she’s been able to maintain her strength and stay active due in large part to her commitment to Pilates. Jen used to muse that if she had more time she would become certified to deepen her own practice. After selling her company, she took a self-imposed sabbatical and did, in fact, have more time. She completed her Comprehensive Classical Pilates Certification with Cher Aslor and loves working clients dealing with hip and knee dysfunction. Jen fondly encourages anyone she knows to simply start moving and experience the benefits of an active lifestyle.  When she’s not at the studio, Jen loves adventuring with her husband and daughter; be it on foot, on skis or by hopping a plane somewhere new.
