"As the director of group fitness of a large 5200 member, hospital based facility, we are always seeking programs that will provide our members with safe, effective exercise, as well as programs to improve their quality of life. Balletone fits the needs of many levels of fitness and, under the direction of Jody Hoegstedt, we are proud to be including this in our fall line up of classes. The exercises are presented in a well organized, extremely safety -conscious manner. In addition, the instructors learn HOW to teach, something other presenters do not always include. The material is presented in a skillful, professional manner, also enhanced is the trainees ability to present to our client base the same level of high standards Balletone has set. It was one of the most rewarding and educating weekends in the fitness facility we have had. Kudos!"

"As a businessman and father of four, Balletone is a wonderful way for me to take the stress out of body and mind....it provides a challenging strength workout with the benefits of stretching that I don't get with other workouts"
"This class completely compliments the core fundamentals of a Pilates workout, yet adds the dimension of having to execute many of the movements from a standing position which further develops the skills of balance and stability.
Debra Butler, veteran Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer
"It's a great change from doing high impact and weights.....I've improved my flexibility and coordination.....it's a great overall workout, and it's FUN!"
Nancy Mathews, Nurse and Massage Therapist
"Like many other moms with young children, I used to be in shape. As I return to fitness, Balletone offers me a challenging workout that is easy on the joints. I look forward to each (Balletone) workout for the strength and flexibility gains, with peace of mind that my old knee injury is not going to flare up"

"...Jody is an innovator of the highest level. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and has the rare combination of charisma and caring.
