As our population grows older it is survival of the fittest ! We can all think about doing something to get fit but to achieve it we need to move daily, by moving daily we can have a real effect on our minds and body which in turn will help us achieve more.
I asked my clients why they started Pilates and here are some of their replies:
“my osteopath suggested to improve my core strength!”
“recommended by a Physio after lower back issues”
“after major abdominal surgery, couldn’t go to the gym so started pilates, have been doing ever since!”
“a friend suggested after having our first babies”
So apart from one, all my clients started due to back issues. So why wait for the injury, start Pilates now,
