Pilates just doesn't improve our fitness, flexibility or strength, it can help individuals who are suffering from back or body pains, and even those who are recovering from other various injuries. Below are some significant pilates success stories that show just how effective pilates can be for everyone!
I was never a person who loved the gym and was turned onto Pilates after the birth of my son. I was in search of a routine that could work around my busy schedule and help give me the motivation needed to regain my old body! I found all of the instructors at The Pilates Room to be extremely experienced, patient, friendly and helpful, especially given that I was a beginner. The group classes are intimate with only a maximum of seven people per group and the private lessons are just me, so I continue to feel that I am getting all the focused attention I need. I began to notice a positive change in my body within weeks of starting pilates classes and shortly thereafter, people started asking what I was doing and I recommended The Pilates Room to them. Since then, I feel flexible, healthier, stronger, and confident. My body looks and feels more toned and I feel like I am returning to myself! I even think I have better posture, which is a bonus. I am so pleased to have a workout that I enjoy and look forward to attending each and every week. A big thank you to the team at The Pilates Room.
If you're looking for an easy way to get back into the gym after giving birth, then pilates is the perfect place to start. Although, you'll love it so much, you won't ever stop!
I am an avid badminton player, but my instructor felt I was falling behind due to my poor flexibility. He suggested I tried pilates, but I was apprehensive at first. However, I knew I wanted to improve in my other sport, so I thought I would give it a try and The Pilates Room was recommended to me. It's been a couple of months now and I've already started to see wonderful improvements in my flexibility and it's impacted positively in my badminton games. I thought I would be the only guy at pilates, but that's not the case. It's a brilliant activity for athletes who constantly want to improve on their core, posture and flexibility. It has also protected me from other injuries which means I can play for longer in badminton games. Thanks to the team at The Pilates Room I've been able to increase my game and succeed further in badminton. I do pilates weekly now and I love it - I won't look back!
Maria suffered from back pain for years and struggled to feel comfortable sitting or standing for long periods of time. This made daily tasks somewhat of a nightmare! One of her friends suggested that she gave pilates a go, and The Pilates Room was recommended to her due to their high-quality private classes. Within a couple of weeks her back pain was lessening and she had far fewer issues. After several months her back pain improved significantly, and now she doesn't need to take painkillers for the pain!
If you suffer from back, shoulder or neck pain, then you might find that pilates can help you. You don't need to be a fitness fanatic to do pilates, you just need a good attitude.
