For those of you who have worked with me, I am clearly not 6 feet tall. Nor am I a super model in any way, shape, or form. Truthfully, I have been known to forget my moisturizer, I don’t get regular mani/pedi’s, and I cant wear high heels for more than 20 yards before tumbling to the ground. Yes, feel free to have a chuckle on my behalf.
As PT’s, my gals (Jolene and Ann) have an abundance of knowledge on preventative care for an array of conditions. I myself suffer from a spinal condition where one of my vertebra likes to travel towards my bellybutton and cause me pain. The best way for me to prevent this “feisty dude” from irritating me is to do the stability exercises that work best for ME. Part of this routine often includes movements that are used in Pilates.
This approach to integrating strength and stability leaves me feeling like I am 6 feet tall, tight, solid, and build like a brick house. No joke. No exaggeration. No monkey business.
Ann and I are both trained to instruct pilates with the bonus of integrating all of our rehabilitation know-how to accomplish rehab goals and fitness goals.
We look forward to sharing this with you all.
PS: To all you MEN out there….there is nothing girlie about the reformer. I bet you (a coffee or tea or kool-aid) that we can give you a better workout on the apparatus than you can get in the gym. Bring it on!
If you have not experienced Pilates….wait until you see this..
