The Story of Precision


I  began my Pilates Journey. I was working at the Mid-Island Y JCC in Plainview. Pilates just came to the mainstream. We had an instructor from NYC come in to teach Pilates mat for us. She was very unreliable and would cancel often, and without notice. Since I had a dance background.  I signed myself and another instructor up for a mat certification with Physical mind.    


After leaving the JCC, I started moonlighting at local studios around the island. I then went on to get certified by Power Pilates, in their mat program. After settling in Smithtown, I decided there was so much more to Pilates, and wanted to know the work better and learn the equipment.   I made the leap and went through the equipment certification through Power Pilates. I started teaching at Golds Gym, Simply Pilates, and Pilates Center of Long Island. I realized quickly, I did not like “gym” Pilates.   


After realizing I was missing too many milestones with my children, I decided to work for myself and hang a shingle as they say and “LLC”-ed Precision Pilates and Wellness.

Precision Pilates has evolved over the years. Personal training and mat were our mainstays to start. The universe was in line with me, I found a reformer on craigslist for a steal. Investing in Springboards, and small props so my clients can “feel the Power” of the springs, our tiny studio grew, and grew.    


I ramped up my offerings with small group classes and the rest is history.    I was busy, I was steady.  I hemmed and hawed about getting space outside the home.  I looked, I looked but never found the space that felt like home. I kept my eyes open for good deals on used equipment and began to amass a small studio in a storage unit for the “One Day.”


Fast forward to March. COVID hit and we shifted to Virtual. I never worked harder in my life to keep people going, create some normalcy, to give them solace in routine. I left props, mats, and weights on the front porch for members to borrow. Made bulk orders on anything I could get my hands on.   We did it though. 

In June we were supposed to open up, NYS pulled the plug. Then in July, they said we could open outside.  I moved 3 Reformers to my back porch and hoped for the best, it would be for a short time. I ordered towers for the reformers for a better Pilates experience 

It was an instant success. We followed all the mandates, temp checks, hand sanitizing, affidavits, masks, 6 feet apart. The studio was growing.   We moved another reformer to the porch and added Wunda chairs. NY State said we could go inside…. I was not ready yet for anyone to be tracking in and out of my home. So we stayed outside. I ordered heaters, I sewed clear plastic blinds (thanks mom for sending me for sewing lessons in 3rd grade). We made it work. Members wore gloves, layers, and we tried not to talk about temperature. NYS announced we can go 3 feet apart. We added a 5th Reformer.

Spring came, we added oscillating fans. Summer came, we handed cold eucalyptus towels out. No one wanted to go inside this was our Oasis.   


AND I knew it was time to start looking. I finally found home. It was more space than I needed (2000 sq. ft), and with COVID still looming, I was nervous, I was scared, it would have been easier to stay comfy. But it was time. Making you Strong from the inside and Lovely on the out.

Jen Ward
Pilates Teacher

Jen Ward started “Rolling like a Ball” to Winsor videos in her Brooklyn apartment in 2000 and soon began Classical instruction at Happy Now Flat Belly. As a dancer until age 20, Jen was excited to find movement like Pilates that helped to transform her body. Pilates also helped her decrease stress and she was soon found sneaking out at lunch during work to group reformer classes. Jen loved the body/mind results and noticeable changes in her breath patterns so she started her teacher training in 2010 with Core Pilates NYC, Momentum and then found Jessica Schultz and Peak Pilates when healing from an injury and overwork.

She got to see Pilates through a different lens when her body initially couldn’t perform even beginner movements. As she healed, became stronger and then started a training program, Jen became more inspired than ever to share this work as a health practitioner. As a Pilates Instructor, Chinese Medicine & Ayurvedic Practitioner and Woman’s Hormonal Health Coach Jen is excited to present and teach this self care health system of body, mind, and spirit with clients. Let’s get your breath flowing properly and health will follow. Joseph Pilates said “Above all, learn how to breathe correctly.” Jen is excited to join the team at Precision Pilates & Wellness.

Kailey Lyons Pilates mat instructor in Nesconset

Kailey Lyons,
Pilates Mat Instructor

Kailey Lyons, our new Certified Mat Pilates Instructor, has a deep-rooted, lifelong passion for all things health, wellness, nutrition and fitness. When she retired from competitive gymnastics after high school 10 years ago, she had difficulty finding a challenging method of exercise that activated and strengthened the deep muscles in her body that gymnastics once had. When she discovered fitness-based Mat Pilates through Beachbody, she fell in love as she was finally seeing the same positive results in her body and mind that gymnastics once gave her. Over the years, Pilates has aided her healing journey after back surgery and even helped her lose 35 pounds post-college. However, to Kailey, Pilates is not just about “working out and staying toned”. Pilates is much more. On a daily basis, Pilates continues to help her remain centered, controlled, present as well as strong in the mind, body and soul. Pilates is truly a lifestyle and goes beyond the movements on the mat. Kailey can’t wait to share her love for Pilates with others at Precision Pilates & Wellness, Nesconset and looks forward to making friends along the way! 

Kailey has 2 sisters, an Irish Setter puppy, and loves being on the water, painting, writing, baking and any outdoor activities!”

Pilates Apprentice

Before becoming a fitness instructor, I was a competitive gymnast and college cheerleader at St. John’s University in Queens. Being in sports my whole life, broadened my world into coaching where I began coaching gymnastics and cheerleading.

As I got older, I became interested in coaching a new population of clients with a new skill set. I received my full mat pilates certificate with the classical Power Pilates program in NYC in 2017. Interested in adding more to my repertoire I also received my 200-hour yoga, kids yoga, prenatal yoga, and stand-up paddle board and was recently accepted into the 2023 600-hour comprehensive cohort.

I believe that fitness has always helped me during, not only the happy times but also the hard times as well as getting all my stresses out one push-up at a time. I love coaching others and helping them feel great about themselves.
