About Jessica and Jessica Valant Pilates

I believe YOU have the power to change the world.

My name is Jessica Valant and I am a passionate believer that we all have the ability to change the world simply by being the best and healthiest and happiest person we can be.

When you feel your best and have confidence in who you are, you are able to give others your best. You then give your spouse, children and friends permission to be THEIR best. To laugh, to love, to grow.

See the ripple effect?

The problem is, we don’t always know how to be our best, or our healthiest, or our happiest.

I know because I’ve been there myself!

I want to help you glow again, because to make real changes in the world, we need more of you and your sparkle!

My Story
I have been a physical therapist and Pilates instructor since 2000, and opened my own studios in Hawaii in 2006. I am lucky and blessed to have found a career I absolutely adore, and I never figured I would move away from seeing clients 40 hours/week.

Then I had a baby, and my life changed.

We welcomed our daughter in 2013 and it turned my life upside down in the most amazing and magical way possible. I loved staying home with that girl and never questioned my role as a mom.

Except I missed something.

I missed teaching. I missed encouraging. I missed educating. I missed using the skills I had always been trained to use. I missed giving back to people through physical healing and I started to doubt my roll in the world.

I also found that there were no online resources that combined great workouts, amazing instruction, injury knowledge, healthy recipes and REAL LIFE stories about women going through what I was.

So I created it.

Jessica Valant Pilates is a space where I can combine my professional training as a PT and Pilates instructor, my love for teaching and health and my full blown passion for moms and women everywhere.

I want encourage other women and mamas that they can truly be powerful and earth-shaking women, even when they have ten appointments to rush to, leftovers on the table or baby spit up on their shirts.

I teach about health, fitness, nutrition, family, lifestyle and all things rock star women and mamas should know about being their best and letting others around them do the same.
