Jessica Dalliday, MA, RKin. CAT(C), Certified Pilates Instructor, STOTT

My name is Jessica Dalliday and I created Pilates on Demand, an online Pilates class platform designed for real bodies.

I created Pilates on Demand to conveniently bring Pilates, meditation and rehab expertise to the comfort of your home. As a busy working mom, I know how hard it can be to fit exercise into your busy day. Pilates on Demand allows for convenient and safe exercise that you can do anywhere, anytime and at any skill level.

With a masters degree in Kinesiology and as a certified Athletic Therapist, registered Kinesiologist, certified Pilates Instructor and certified Postnatal Fitness Specialist, you can feel confident that the exercise chosen for you is appropriate for your fitness level.

I strongly believe in body acceptance and my number one goal with Pilates on Demand is to help you feel stronger and more confident in your own skin.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a world where we don’t feel like we need to change to fit in. 

We want you to want to take care of yourself regularly so that you can feel happy and confident in your body, and go after your dreams without judgement.

We want to create a world where everyone feels strong and empowered, a world where we can be present and truly enjoy who we are and what we’ve built.

Our Mission

Here at Pilates on Demand, our mission is to shift the focus from appearances onto all of the other incredible things our bodies can do. Pilates is an excellent form of exercise that safely strengthens the body’s core, while improving posture, flexibility and coordination.

We believe that everyone can benefit from a regular Pilates exercise routine and we are dedicated to ensure that people everywhere have access to Pilates no matter how many commitments they have, where they live, what fitness level they are or what their bodies look like.

Here at Pilates on Demand we know how hard it can be to decide what kind of exercise to do and when to fit it into your busy schedule. That’s why we created a decision-free format of classes we call SERIES and CHALLENGES where all you have to do is show up and follow along.

Everyone deserves to be happy and successful in their body and we’re here to give you the tools to help you shine.

My Story

After battling an exercise and eating disorder for many years, my health was put in jeopardy when I found out I wasn’t able to to have kids because of my so called “healthy lifestyle.”

After that, I was determined to start moving my body in a more positive, natural way, rather than trying to use exercise to control the way I looked.

After stopping the restrictive eating and exercising, I am happy to say I have my health and my fertility back!

It has been a hard road but dealing with infertility has taught me so much about myself and others struggling.

I am a strong believer that everyone should have an equal chance at fertility and that is why I am committed to raising awareness and as much funds as possible.

Each year Pilates on Demand raises and donates money to the Peterborough Butterfly Run.

No one should have to give up their dreams of being parents because of finances alone.
