Jerry is an energetic and dedicated teacher. His greatest fulfilment in teaching Pilates came from witnessing how impactful changes in his students’ physical bodies had positive influences over other aspects of their lives. This helped define his life mission; To teach and inspire people to take changes that would improve their quality of life.

Jerry studied Pilates with Pilates Master Teacher and Elder Ron Fletcher (1921-2011) since 2004. Ron’s emphasis on excellence influenced him to constantly explore ways to develop his teaching skills. Jerry’s greatest strength is his ability to adapt and adjust teaching methods to different learning personalities so as to make learning simple yet effective. Jerry is actively involved in mentoring Pilates Teachers so that they can in turn bring more impactful change to more people.

In his last 12 years of teaching Pilates, Jerry has frequently helped people with knee, back, shoulder and neck problems. He especially loved and taught many runners, golfers, tennis players, skiers, yogis and dancers to improve their sports performance using Pilates. Having spent many years presenting and introducing Pilates to the workplace and schools, Jerry strongly believes that Pilates is a critical foundation to any movement programme out there.

Jerry is also a guest speaker on Wellness Insider TV’s Expert Views and in episode 4, he talked about mobility fitness and why “kids do sports to keep fit but adults keep fit to do sports”.
