What Client's Are Saying
This is not only a testimonial letter, this is a thank you letter for you my dear friend and Coach.
As you know all my life I have been a top athlete. I was Mr. Israel twice. I competed in Europe in Mr. Universe and Mr. Mediterranean and won 4th place in the Heavyweight Division. At the age of 31, I had enough, so I started Martial Arts training and I was training in Krav Maga as well as Thai- Boxing.
In 2 1/2 years I became the first Israeli to receive a Black Belt in such a short time, usually it take 5 years or more. In 1998 I was brought to America in order to teach and promote Krav Maga. Immediately I was looking for a place to train in order to compete in Thai Boxing.
In 2004 I won the Amateur Heavy Weight Championship. At the age of 44, I took 3rd Place in Jujitsu in the Pan Am Tournament. I also competed in other tournaments that same year and won 3 Gold Medals in 3 different categories.
The future looked bright, I felt I was in the PRIME of my life until I felt pain in my hip, the result of teaching at a seminar that I performed. The pain had subsided but I felt it needed to be checked out to make sure there is no damage done to my hip. So my doctor requested me to have an MRI done, and the result tore my life apart. It was a complete nightmare!
My life after this was never the same after this test.
I had to deal with a tremendous amount of pain every single day. I went through so many different treatments from different doctor's as well as alternative provider's and nothing helped me.
I found a specialist and he diagnosed me with a Labrum Tear and I made a decision to undergo surgery. The outcome had failed, and no matter how many treatments I had, nothing was helping me.
My confidence regarding my life and my livelihood seemed very vague at this stage, but I refused to give up.
I was looking for a miracle to happen. I went to see a Chiropractor by the name of David Wells, he was very creative but his treatments were not successful, and he referred me to you Jennifer, which I thank G-d everyday for the miracle you have given me.
Jennifer you my dear took the challenge and gave me lots of hope.
Day after day, week after week we work on strengthening the core of my body, my balance and my hip. It was almost like learning how to walk again. Now I can walk without pain, kick without losing my balance, and walk with confidence, and most of all do my job training in the most physical aspects of my career, and most of all becoming PAIN FREE!With your inspiration and motivation I have overcome all my obstacles. You are diffidently the 'MIRACLE' in my life and I Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I have been working with Jennifer Wilson for many years and I have rarely come upon someone as skilled and intuitive about the body as she is. She is able to expertly, precisely, and safely guide people from the very beginning of movement awareness all the way to Olympian athletic performance improvement to gain confidence and clarity, all while creating more structural soundness through it all. She is simply the best.

My very personal 1st encounter with Jennifer was nothing short of a godsend and miracle for me. I am not exaggerating, and I unfortunately know from which I speak, having been in a cycle of chronic pain since being run over by an automobile 27 years prior to seeing Jennifer.
I had already been a Pilates devotee for over 20 years; I knew Pilates for me was a must if I was to regain any mobility in my back and hip. I had been to L.A.’s best and most well-known studios from Beverly Hills to Calabasas. Yet, the very first time I lied down on the reformer working with Jennifer, it was like she intuitively knew my problem areas, and better yet intuitively positioned me in such a way that for the 1st time in 27 years, I was finally in a state of being PAIN FREE.
To my surprise, tears began rolling down my face. A wonderful feeling came over me that I will never forget. She told me that she could get me to feel like that most of the time, and I’m here to tell you that she was true to her word. First I needed to unlearn some old Pilates moves that I had been doing wrong all along. (Why hadn’t anyone that I had paid good money told me earlier?!)
Jennifer breaks things down so you can visually interpret how things are supposed to work, and how you can optimally obtain a balanced outcome.
So whom shall I credit for this wonderful, pain-free life I am now having? Is it Joseph Pilates that I should credit, or is it really Jennifer, for teaching me the correct way to practice Pilates? I will give them both their due, and thank Jennifer for her help in transforming me so that I can enjoy my new and pain-free body.
For all those suffering from real physical pain, I can give no better recommendation.
An added bonus - my arms look pretty groovy too!
Prior to beginning with you more than ten years ago, I suffered with very painful recurring back problems, including slipped disks. You personally helped nurse me “back” to health and have helped me become a healthy person with almost zero back problems. On the rare occasion that I do suffer from a minor “tweak” in my back, I am always able to bounce back in a very short time and reenter my healthy lifestyle. A side bonus is that my clothes all fit better than ever! As I mentioned to you at my workout just this Tuesday evening (August 19, 2014), the one hour I spend each week with you is one of my favorite hours in my entire week.
I started Pilates with Jennifer as part of physical therapy after a back injury in 2011. Now I couldn't do without it. My strength and flexibility have hugely improved, raising my athletic performance in other sports and activities. Even better, I have had no recurrence of back pain at all. Jennifer is very knowledgeable about the body and has great intuition for working with clients. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Let me start by saying that I have always hated working out…it was never something I liked to do & I would make a million excuses why I didn't have time…that is until I came to Bodywise. Jennifer Wilson has changed my mind about exercise while changing my body with Pilates! I am in the best shape of my life and I actually now look forward to working out! I have an old neck injury that used to flare up during exercise so she customizes my Pilates work-out so that I now get maximum results without hurting my neck. She is a motivating trainer, thoroughly knowledgeable about the human body (I've learned a great deal about muscles/anatomy from her) and she is incredibly nice and down-to-earth! I can't begin to say enough great things about Jennifer & Bodywise so make an appointment and start transforming your mind and body like I did! Caroline B. ~ Northridge, CA
I have been taking ballet for years and was unable to continue with my classes due to a knee issue. I came to Bodywise and Jennifer is all the kings men and put Humpty Dumpty back together again and now I am back to class on a regular basis.
I have been a client at Bodywise for several years. The facility is clean and well equipped. Jennifer and her staff are wonderful, knowledgeable and very professional. I am very happy here and readily recommend it to my patients and friends. Emily rocks!
