JESSICA HOPE is the owner and director of TONE Pilates. Jessica was introduced to Pilates as a first year dance student at NYU Tisch of the Arts, where she studied with Kathy Grant. She is a graduate of the LaGuardia Performing Arts High School (Fame School) and a native of Queens. Her certification in Pilates was with masters Dawn Marie Ickes and Allyson Cabot and has a specialty in Rehabilitation through Pilates. She holds a BFA from NYU and has danced professionally on Broadway, off Broadway and on tours through North America and Europe as well as TV and movies.

Jessica is a commander of the classroom and strives to provide an engaging and supportive environment for all clients. Her mission with TONE is to keep a homegrown style, artisan feel for the studio. The staff focuses on our clients and wants them to feel that they cared for as they achieve something new each time they step through the door. We know your name so you will never feel like a number at TONE. Our boutique studio is small and intimate and each client becomes part of the TONE family.

The transformation that Jessica has experienced in her body through Pilates by believing in herself and taking risks outside normal expectations has given her the focus, energy and drive to open TONE. Jessica needed to share the journey with others so that they can experience real change in themselves.

Change is possible through hard work, whether you are being provoked by an Evil Finger or feel your abs slowly burned, you are assured to leave the space feeling longer and stronger and with a smile on your face, because you've begun your own personal journey of transformation.
