“I contacted Jennifer Gerali about two years ago, after extensive surgery to repair my right rotator cuff. I had asked my doctor, Dr. James Guerra, if it was appropriate to begin Pilates, with the intention of healing and strengthening my rotator, so I could get back on the tennis courts. Dr. Guerra was most supportive and when I mentioned Jennifer’s name, he was all smiles. “She was my patient,” he exclaimed most proudly. “I endorse her completely.”
It was when she presented me with a legal release form, to be signed by my surgeon that I knew Ms. Gerali was the REAL DEAL. She was not going to start moving parts around without the doctor’s consent. And then there was the private consultation – in an immaculate setting that gave me total confidence that this woman meant Business – capital B!
Her questions during the consultation were concise, professional and all-knowing. I soon found out she had a similar surgery to mine and knew every bone and muscle in the body – and was quick to quiz me on my knowledge of what was going on in various body parts. We became partners in rehabilitating my broken body – she would do her part, as long as I did mine. That meant sticking to a clean diet, exercising slowly and methodically in the beginning, coming twice a week – and on time, going the limit on everything she asked me to do.
She saved my tennis serve and encouraged me to tone and test this 71 year- old body to a point where I am competing with women half my age – and enjoying every minute, pain free.
Ms. Gerali is professional, competent, extremely knowledgeable, funny, fair, a great listener. Like I said – THE REAL DEAL.”
