The magic of Pilates is no longer a secret, especially right here in Los Angeles. With more people advancing their Pilates practice, Jessica Francis, Founder & Owner of Pilatesmith, saw clients hitting a proverbial "Pilates Ceiling" - they were plateauing or having a hard time finding challenging classes during the times they could workout. With more people wanting more from Pilates, and more people flocking to intense workouts like OrangeTheory and Rumble, there was an opportunity for a Pilates offering that would satisfy both the experienced Pilates lover and those who just love a good, hard workout. It’s from this insight that the idea for Pilatesmith was born!


The name Pilatesmith came from the word "Blacksmith.” The professionals who hold these titles worked hard to be masters of their craft. We call each of our members "Smiths," and it’s meant to connote this idea of craftsmanship, skill, beauty - and just general badassery - as it relates to Pilates and their life outside of the studio.

The Pilatesmith Difference

Pilatesmith specializes in athletic, full body workouts crafted for women and men who crave a more challenging Pilates experience. This means more intense, efficient, and dynamic workouts and more of them on the schedule during the times you can workout!

Pilatesmith offers Reformer-based workouts in Group and Private settings designed to challenge your strength and endurance in order to tighten, tone, shape, and lengthen your entire body. We call them “workouts” vs. classes for a reason! If you can make coming 2-3 times a week a habit, you will see and feel your body change.

Expect to work hard and leave feeling satisfied and invigorated. We call it the Smith Glow!
