Betsy Johnson

Betsy has been the director of the TOSH Pilates program since its inception in April 2015. Prior to this, she worked for Orthopedist Dr. Vernon Cooley for 11 years. After college at Idaho State, she obtained a Master's Degree from BYU in Exercise Science. She is a Certified Athlete Trainer trained in the care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. After a back injury of her own, she learned the value of reformer Pilates in maintaining, and improving upon, the recovery she had achieved during Physical Therapy. Betsy is a certified Stott Pilates instructor. She loves reformer Pilates because of the modifications available to people with various abilities and goals. With her training in injury treatment and prevention, Stott Pilates was a natural fit.

She has always enjoyed being active! She played volleyball in college, and now enjoys Nordic skiing and cycling. Through her work with swimmers, runners, and as a competitor of LoToJa, she understands the injuries caused by chronic overuse caused by long miles of training. She recently completed the epic 196 mile Coast to Coast hike in England with some dear friends. She has 21 fabulous nieces and nephews, and a family she can't get enough of!

Jenn Jacobs

Jenn Jacobs is our most recent addition to the TOSH Pilates program. We are so happy to have her! Jenn is a Fully Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer. She travels to other states educating aspiring Pilates instructors. She started Pilates as a professional dancer and choreographer to maintain her muscular length and flexibility. But after suffering a fracture in her cervical spine and enduring chronic pain in her lumbar spine, Pilates was a huge benefit in helping her heal from her injury as well as allowing her to continue dancing, running, hiking, and maintaining a very active lifestyle.

Jenn has worked with professional and Olympic athletes, individuals rehabilitating injury, and risk adverse individuals. She loves motivating people to improve their skills and functional ability. She wants all clients to love their body. She has facilitated corporate wellness programs and is a certified personal fitness trainer, and group fitness instructor. See Jenn for group Pilates classes or for private Pilates instruction.

Jenn has an adorable, 12-year-old daughter named Olivia, and a super naughty dog named Ollie. Any advice on teenage girls and/or training dogs would be greatly appreciated!
