Interested in joining our team? We’re always interested in meeting experienced and personable Trainers to take on Privates and eventually take on Group Workouts as we expand! If you think you fit the job description below, we’d love to hear from you!


About Us

Pilatesmith opened its doors in December 2018 and has started building a reputation for being a premier Pilates studio in Santa Monica, CA. Owner and Founder Jessica Francis sought to build a studio for those more advanced in their practice. This means there are no beginner level workouts on the group schedule and the style is more athletic; mixing Pilates exercises as well as those from the fitness world to give clients a full body workout with an emphasis on pace and functional movement. This style attracts a clientele that wants to work hard, which makes the environment a lot of fun for both the client and Trainer! Pilatesmith is a membership-based studio (we call our members “Smiths”), so we get to know the faces in our workouts, build relationships with our Smiths, and are able to help them achieve their fitness goals. Along with Groups the studio also offers Privates where we see everyone at any experience level. We can see up to 3 Privates at a time in our upstairs Atelier while Group workouts go on downstairs in the Foundry. We take pride in our modern, upbeat, and inviting studio located right off beautiful Main Street. The studio is outfitted with state of the art Balanced Body Reformers and Chairs, and at each station is a TRX Trainer, Bosu Ball, weights, and a basket of props that allow Trainers to flow their workouts on the fly and create a fresh, dynamic workout each time. Our Team is experienced and supportive of each other. The Owner Jessica has a marketing background and her business sense guides her practical and hands-on approach as an Owner. As a Trainer herself, Jessica truly “gets it. “ She champions creativity and growth, understands the hustle, and aims to support each Team Member so they feel successful inside and outside of the studio.


Pilatesmith is seeking a highly motivated, personable, and experienced Trainer to teach Private workouts, sub, and possibly take on Group Workouts as we expand! The ideal candidate will enjoy teaching an advanced, athletic workout as much as they do introducing a client to Pilates for the first time. We are looking for instructors who are confident working with clients who have injuries, and, ideally, pre/postnatal clients. If you have a bright personality, enjoy being creative, growing, teaching dynamic workouts, and are willing to build relationships and build business, you’ll be a great addition to our Team!
