ABOUT fitilates


Jessica Zapata, the creator of fitilates, first experience of Pilates was as a young ballet dancer where it was used as extra conditioning. As she approached her 20s and left the world of dance behind her, she began to study Kinesiology at the University of Alberta. It was here she discovered her passion to coach and train others to live their best life. Fast forward to now, armed with a BSc. Kin, CSCS, Pilates Certification and numerous other certifications, she now holds over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry.

fitilates was created with you in mind. Jessica saw a need to break away from the hard, harder, hardest mentality that caused discomfort, fatigue and results that were just meh.

After having her babies, it became apparent that fitness meant much more about how one performed and felt. And while looking good is good; feeling great is so much better!

She wants you focus on a fitness program that delivers results in all aspects of your life; training smarter, not harder. Combining elements of both exercise science, fitness and classical Pilates, Jessica has created a contemporary, modern approach to Pilates exercises and principles and has made it relevant to beginners and high-performance athletes alike. 

fitilates leaves you feeling stronger, leaner and more powerful than ever.
