Jenna Zaffino, one of our trained volunteers in Chicago owns a Pilates studio and has transformed her program to better help clients with osteoporosis and low bone mass.
Jenna came to American Bone Health because she had a client with osteoporosis who did not want to go on drug treatment and she wanted to better understand the disease and how Pilates could help. Since her training, Jenna says that she has learned so much about osteoporosis and is able to have more informed conversations with her clients, saying ”I’m now able to take better care of my clients with bone density issues in a safe manner.”
Jenna has been very active with American Bone Health once she learned how useful our information is to consumers. She is working with her Pilates studio to create bone safe pilates workshops where they talk about exercise and nutrition. Her next workshop is February 19th, 2012, so if you’re in the Chicago area, go out and support Jenna! Aside from her Pilates work, Jenna is also raising awareness in Chicago. She recently had an editorial done in the Chicago Sun-Times that claimed her studio to be one of the only “bone safe pilates studio” of Chicago.
When asked what she likes about our organization, she said that American Bone Health is very welcoming. There were no hoops that she needed to jump through and that it is really easy to be a volunteer. She said, “The amount of professionalism is what makes the experience so valuable.” Jenna is representative of American Bone Health in so many ways. She not only took our information to help her clients in her own business, but is going beyond to her community. It’s representatives like Jenna who are contributing to the prevention and ultimate end of osteoporosis. Thanks, Jenna!
