    I would love to get back into prime state of mind, health and physical strength as soon as this lockdown is lifted. After having 2 kids (6&4yrs) both c-section i have had chronic back pain and the dreaded mummy pouch… The only exercise i find that helps and I absolutely love is reformer pilates.

    Regular Reformer Pilates helps me build a stronger core, improves my posture which helps with fewer headaches and puts me in the BEST mood. I find when doing 2 or 3 times a week it also changes my body shape & muscle tone, increases my flexibility, and most importantly builds optimal health and helps me to move more efficiently. Which i am finding is getting a little (teeny) bit harder as I move closer to the big 40… shhhhh.

    Obviously not being able to afford a machine during the lockdown has really put me behind both physically and mentally. I tried to keep on top of some exercise which also included the kids but they are not the best with keeping concentration so i was quite limited.

    Soooo I would LOVE to win a membership to push me and get me back to feeling AMAZING!!

      Moving from Sydney i’m desperately missing my KX Pilates classes!! I’m looking for an equally fantastic, local reformer class to get my ass back into shape and hoping BEST BODY is that place!!

      Working from home the last 8 weeks has resulted in my back, neck, flexibility and overall body feeling yack as well as the extra “Covid Kilos” i need to shift.

      Winning the 3 months membership would be AWESOME…. i miss walking out of a session with jelly legs 🙂

    A three month membership would be absolutely fantabulous for me at the moment. At the end of February a nasty storm hit the farm, so it was all hands on deck to clean up – four weeks worth of my hands and this old body started to feel some pain. Then, getting my abilities mixed up with my capabilities, I hurt my back, tried to exercise my way out of that and my knee went, so spent a month doing very very little. Back to walking now, but I do miss the relief and help that reformers gave my old body. Can’t wait to get back to the city and to some pain free and drug free days. I only started reformer at Best Body last October, and was just beginning to feel the benefits of no pain, weight loss and feeling good about me – would love that feeling again. Cheers

      A Best Body Reformer Pilates membership can help me over the next 3 months, coming out of this pandemic to get back to the physical and mental fitness I had before this pandemic. Unfortunately my hip pain has come back, which had mostly been resolved after going to Best Body Reformer Pilates. I’ve lost 10 kg and now need to be able to get rid of tight hamstring muscles and thus alleviate my hip pain, also tone up my poor old body!

    I so need this, am a nurse manager & have been working my butt off with COVID complexities in the hospital environt; supporting staff emotionally with the fear of becoming sick, financial strains & roster cuts. Then to top it all off my husband tore the tendons off his shoulder & has had a useless arm , can’t drive, &5 weeks now. My needs have had to be put on hold, I feel fat and flabby, my knees are sore from walking & I just need to get back on that reformer.

      I love exercise and do yoga regularly but have been told that your classes are designed to build strength and stamina without overdoing it! Much as I hate to admit it this 60+ year old body needs a bit more care nowadays. I love that you are well qualified to design programs for all levels of fitness. Can’t wait!!

    I have been in lockdown with a newborn that just hates sleeping. As a first time mum and having to do this all alone due to The rona, to top it off we are living in a house in mid renovations with a husband working 12 hour days trying to provide for us. He is a bloody heavy Bub and I really need to get my strength back to carry the little bugger around. I joined best body while pregnant and it helped me maintain a healthy fit pregnancy. I miss annika absolutely whooping my butt on saturdays! I really really need some ‘me’ time!!

    I am so looking forward to coming back to this studio, I haven’t had a class since I was 39 weeks pregnant and my first wee little bubby is now 5 months old, I had repair surgery and wasn’t cleared to come back and then CoVID reared it’s ugly head and I was actually devastated as my mental health took a steep decline. The reason I got in to Pilates at best body 2 years ago (Hillarys) was to help my mental state mostly after trauma and to supplement my exercise, it really has changed my life and given me my mind and my body back thank you Best Body. I hope to get right back to where I left off as soon as possible!! 3 months of Pilates will be absolutely magical and it will help me get my mind and my body back on track xx

    So need to get back some me time, just to lye down on that reformer & stretch, destress, and become totally self absorbed in myelf for 45 mins. Nothing else compares to those classes where exercise is concerned. I am COVID comprised, flabby with sore knees! I have spent 5 weeks caring for my husband who injured his shoulder & had surgery- no lifting for 3 mths & a useless arm. I have been working my butt off as a nurse manager & today I just sat down & cried after I sliced a chunk off my finger. I have been struggling to fit the limited class times into my busy schedule and can’t wait for a full return to the original time table. Pilates has become my first choice of exercise. I have missed you!

    I used to do Pilates regularly and loved it but since we bought a supermarket and being a main career for my Grandies I found that I didn’t have time anymore and have become very unfit and overweight. Although I am in my sixties (Shhhhhsh)I feel I would benefit greatly both physically and mentally. I have osteoarthritis and feel this would help me with my movement.
    Fingers crossed.

    I have struggled most my life with back pain and sore knees and my fitness and health suffered as a consequence. I saw the Duncraig Best body when dropping my daughter off at tutoring and I watched people walking out exhausted but happy and revitalised. I enquired but it took me another 6 months to build up the confidence to go for my first assessment, with the help of my sister who decided to go with me and hold my hand. The week my sister and I were going to have our first session I ended up in emergency having my gall bladder removed which meant I was unable to commence Best Body for another 6 weeks. I watched my sister come back from a work out jealous that I couldn’t go. My first session I thought I would never be able to lift my arms again and I felt I was completely uncoordinated but the lovely staff made me feel comfortable and I knew I could continue (despite the fact it felt like my arms would drop off). I looked forward to the sessions to push myself and strengthen my body but after my 4th session the world shut down and we all went into hibernation. Now while it has been lovely hanging out with the family and doing things as a unit, hibernation has not been kind to me. I work at a desk in my living room all day, cook dinner, walk the dog and finish on the couch. I need the motivation and commitment of Best Body reformer classes to help build my body and confidence.

    A three month membership would be a blessing in disguise for me. I was a founding member of the Duncraig studio, however, due to financial hardship I had to let that membership go. That was last year. I have been living with a dodgy back for most of my adult life and have struggled between wanting to get fit (gym memberships, boot camps etc) only to find that two months in the gym would inevitably end with three months in physio. The few months that I was able to go to BB Duncraig were fantastic. Finally, an exercise regime that was perfect for me because it was all about correct form. I am not overweight, but in recent months I’ve seen the sagging of the body that comes with age, three c sections and being unfit. I want to like my shape again. I want to perk up the butt, stand straighter, lose the tuck shop arms. I’d like to wake up in the morning and feel like I’m 40 again, not 60. (I’m not 60 btw 🙂 ) I think young, I want my body to feel young. I want to strengthen the weak parts, celebrate the strong parts and finally, finally find the all round solution this tired, slightly broken body needs. Thank you for your consideration.

      I was born with congenital hip dysplasia. I have scoliosis and sciatica & sacroiliac joint pain, varicose veins. The various conditions left me with 50% movement from my waist down. I have been medicated with antidepressants for 15years as a way of dealing with debilitating period pain. Decades of chiros, Physio’s, OTs, and assorted specialists and alternate medical practitioners led me to trying Pilates. I was finally getting some flexibility and strength. No longer dependent on pain killers and anti inflammatories. the 2020 hit. Following a burglary and the associated stress that caused, I had my second ovarian surgery with some complications in January the week a family member committed suicide in NSW. February saw my husband admitted to hospital twice the second time with stroke symptoms, the first with an unexplained fever. I was still getting to Pilates when I could after the surgery as I thought it would aid my recovery even if I couldn’t do much and it was a chance to focus on something different for 45 minutes. I have met some beautiful people at the studio. People who don’t seem to judge but recognise we all have limitations. The last few weeks have seen the pain increase, the range of movement decrease. I avoid the stairs as I’m scared my knees or hips will give way. My hamstrings are constantly tight. The last two weeks back in the office have been torture with increased sitting. In winning a membership I would like to get back into a routine. Build some mobility and flexibility back into my body, get some strength in the muscles to keep my bones in place. I need to be strong for myself as I age and to make being a carer for my husband easier. It will help get me back to living in less pain. I think there are others who might deserve this more than me. I’ll be back in the studio as soon as it’s possible.

    I have had chronic back pain and SI joint dysfunction for over 8 years. Best Body Pilates was fixing all my pain issues by working on my core and strengthening my pelvic floor.
    During this COVID period I have been working from home with a poor desk set up and my back is causing me extreme pain again. I am desperate to get back to regular attendance. To help with my back but also because my friends were just starting to notice how my shape had changed, how my arms and legs were more toned and how for the first time in years I looked forward to exercise instead of forcing myself to go!
    Can’t wait to get going again! I’d love to see more focussed classes e.g. high intensity, or core specific, or upper body, lower body so I could target the areas I need to work on.
    So glad I joined Best Body. I absolutely love it!

    Once I was finally ready to give pilates a good shot, I experienced 2 fantastic sessions, then unfortunately your doors had to close. I chose to do pilates to help me mentally, to train me to breathe properly and help strengthen my inner core. I couldn’t believe after the 2 sessions how good I felt inside emotionally, I also felt like I had opened up my inner core and was very relaxed. I would love the opportunity to get back on track with my mental wellness, help strengthen my core and build some muscle tone.

    Omg where do I start…. the last 12 mnths have been the worst time I’ve had in my 57years. It’s been 12mnths since I stopped my reformer Pilates classes 1. As my husband had a heart attack, he’s fine now.2. 2 weeks later I had a back operation which was fine as I don’t have any pain in my back but my legs are still numb.
    3. My brother and his wife died in August/September
    4. Our 28 yr old son committed suicide on the 15th January 2020.
    5. Then covid19 hit us I don’t know which way to turn now as I had lost 30 kilos over the last 5yrs now I don’t seem to have any energy or enthusiasm to exercise or do anything and I’ve put on about 10kilos. So I’m “not happy Jan”.

    Having previously been a member at both Hillarys & Duncraig studios I know too well the phenomenal benefits of Reformer Pilates – both physically & mentally. The past 3 months has been hectic; 2 young children, running my own company and trying to stay afloat. My health has taken a back seat. My pre existing back & neck pain is now constant and my body is completely out of alignment. I cannot wait for the studio to reopen! I need to put my health first again & find my happy healthy self

    I have been a member at Duncraig since February 2019 and attended for the most weeks, 3 times a week. After a lifetime of contact sport and Ironman racing, at 56 years old, i have finally found a form of exercise that has eliminated a range of ailments from constant back pain, joint stiffness, muscle imbalance and tightness and posterior chain weakness. To be able to train for triathlon with all systems functioning is something I never thought I would experience again. My data records have showed marked decreases since the studio closed and I am just starting to find my feet again attending Annika’s classes twice a week. The sooner I can get back to full studio attendance the better

    Yesterday I was playing with my rescue dog Louie, he loves me a lot at the moment as he is getting nice long walks while we are in ISO. I lay on my stomach next to him and when I went to get up, ouch I had the worst pain in my hip. I was stuck! Tried a couple more times, no still a nasty nerve pain.
    I’ve never had hip pain before,it was excruciating,I need my best body crew to stretch out these creaky bones. Now don’t worry , I’m not still laid out on the floor, my husband came to the rescue, but I also need you to come to the rescue Scott and help me get moving smoothly again.

    I did Pilates at the Pregnancy Studio several times a week while I grew my baby boy. As an F45’er pre-pregnancy, I thought that Pilates might be too slow for me. I was so wrong. I loved the balance of high energy Pilates classes and lower impact stretches that continued my fitness and built on my strength right through my pregnancy. I fell in love with Pilates and it was a highlight of my pregnancy. I 100% believe Pilates helped give me an amazing birth experience and a quick recovery.

    I started at Duncraig Best Body post-partum and felt so cared for by the various instructors, some of whom I knew from the other studio. It was a gentle re-entry to the world of Pilates as I rebuilt my core.

    It got too hard to continue my membership while bub was young, as I struggled to adjust to life as a new mum. I am now so SO ready to get back into this activity which changed my life so much for the better.

    For me it’s not just about rebuilding my body physically, but getting back to that happy mental space I get in each Pilates session when I’m reminded I’m a strong woman and not just a mum.

    I can’t wait to get back into my reformer classes. During the isolation period I lost my job & I’ve become lazy with exercise & need to get back into my routine ASAP. At the moment I feel sluggish, bloated & out of shape. It’s amazing how having a couple of months off can make your mindset change. My diet & also my wine consumption has also grown during this time!! Please pick me for this competition with 3 kids at home I find my time at Best Body is so valuable & a great time out for me!!

    I would love to win this membership! I have just had my first child Frankie Rose who is now 5 months old, and since having her I have felt my body completely out of whack! It hurts and aches where before it didn’t. I would love to regain my strength so I can hold my baby, and play with her without the aches! Mentally this has been also tough on me as not only have I had to give up the physical exercise but also being in isolation with a newborn has been hard mentally and not having the me time of physical activity to get back and feel better.

    Physical and mental health is so important to me and go hand in hand

    Where to start? Much like many other women, I am desperate to regain my former pre-kids (ages 6 and 4) self. I long to get strong and conditioned. I have 3 prolapsed discs in my lower back and a wonky SIJ/pelvis; something I need to remedy ASAP. Having a FIFO husband and a family/support network overseas has made managing my current physical or mental/emotional state difficult, to say the least. My back has intermittently affected my ability to work since January. Like many others, my ability to work has also been affected by the extra load imposed by COVID. I genuinely need to strengthen and condition so that I can actually physically and mentally support my family when my husband is away. This is where BEST BODY and Reformer Pilates comes in. My goal is to progressively strengthen and condition the right way, so that I can be the person I need to be for my family. I was off to a great start just before BEST BODY had to close due to COVID. I want more than anything to get back on track and be a BEST BODY success story! Please consider me for the membership. Thank you

    Exercise has always been a big part of my life; mainly swimming and water based sports, then lots of running, triathlons, soccer. Lots of moving forward activities. Youth allowed me to go hard today and not worry about tomorrow. Stretching, rest, specific core work and mindful meditation never received a second thought. Then it all caught up with me. Ouch. Exercise was not possible without stretching and dedicated rest days. Slowing down and focussing on core and stability work suddenly meant something to me. After my first reformer class I remember thinking that I’d never moved my body in such a way I did using the reformer, nor did I realise how each muscle works with others and the utter importance of balance and stability from the core and out. I’m lucky. I love to be moving, yes some days it is harder to get moving than others, somedays its slower than others, but every day I move in some way. I’d love for someone who struggles with getting on the move to win the reformer membership. Like many of the stories above. Sure, i’d love to win a membership. I lost my job (swim coach/instructor and first aid trainer) and who knows what ‘normal’ will look like in the aquatic industry in future. However, until finances return to ‘normal’, i’ll keep moving however I can, then I’ll be back. Good luck to all

    Such a kind offer and by reading all the entries I can see how deserving everyone is after these difficult few months. I help run a psychiatric facility and have been working 6 day weeks 0800-1800 since February, I recognize how fortunate I am to be working however it has left me burnt out and monitoring compassion fatigue. I spend all day working through trauma and abuse with people and it ends up impacting the physical body (sleep and diet being a big one). I have had a relapse with my ED and am struggling to find ways to love and care for my body. I have always had a love/ hate relationship with exercise and I feel this would be the help I need to find a community to be a part of. I did a few reformer sessions at BB Duncraig at the end of last year and the instructors were very patient and kind to me (who was very nervous!!!). The vibe in the studio was fantastic. Thanks for reading my entry and best of luck to everyone who entered!

    Hi Scott and the other trainers at Best Body. I was so excited to have a a Reformer Pilates in walking distance from my house, and even more excited that I could actually go. After about 10 years of putting up with pain from a shoulder injury, trying lots of non-surgical treatments unsuccessfully and not being able to do any real upper body work I finally decided to go under the knife and get it fixed early this year. I also had an operation on my big toe. So I spent about 6 weeks not able to do much walking and stuck in the house. The great thing is that after years of chronic pain in my shoulder it now has minimal pain and so much more movement.
    It was amazing to finally be able to do real full body exercise, and the opportunity to do Reformer Pilates, something I had done after having my 2 children, and which I found to be the best thing to really support my body and give it a great workout, was so awesome. I attended 3 sessions with great trainers and then COVID hit.
    I have spent the past couple of months mostly working from my bedroom, providing psychology services to my clients in the disability sector. This has been an interesting time with lots of challenges but also I’ve had so many clients adapt really well and like so many of us I’ve had to adapt the way I work to look after people who are often in much tougher situations.
    The result of the past few months with my operations and COVID is that I have put on weight that I can’t shift no matter how much I walk my neighborhood. I am 53 this year, like to be fit and healthy and would really really love the chance to get back into Reformer Pilates and win a membership.
    Thanks for this opportunity Scott it’s very generous.

      The way my feet feel when they slide into the straps, the muscles in my legs immediately start to sing as I extend and feel everything falling to place
      Nothing compares to the way reformer Pilates feels for my body. The perfect balance of strengthening and stretching without putting stress on some of the things that just can’t defy the A word. Somehow I can also totally relax purely because I am lying down… without any children around to jump on me… even as I work up a sweat and walk out knowing stairs might be taken less gracefully for a few days!
      The soundtracks surprise me every time and I was just starting to link the playlist with the instructor
      It did hurt to commit the finances but I knew it was worth it because the commitment made me really take time for myself and attend. I think I’ve only ‘wasted’ one or two sessions. The spontaneity of children right?
      And then I missed it so much that I was just waiting to throw my money at you again.
      Still, it would be an absolute bonus and blessing to get back into it for free for a few months. Especially as I am aiming to attend 3 per week and am totally looking for a long term relationship
      Though goodness me if I was Scott , I wouldn’t know who to choose. Nobody commits to this who doesn’t need it for good reasons
      Thanks and all the best getting the business back up to speed

    I am a teacher and have been struggling through the past 2 months whilst we have been teaching remotely then a combination of face to face and online learning. All of my routines have fallen by the wayside as teaching and learning and juggling endless communications with parents has taken over my life! Healthy eating- out the door! Exercise – out the door! Reformer Pilates- sadly unavailable! I need to get back in the groove, my core has no core and i need to find it! Help!

    I have been wanting to get back into pilates for some time. Pilates totally changes my body shape, which I really need at the moment. My muscles become longer and leaner and I feel like my posture improves. Doing a pilates class 3 times a week would be mentally good for me as well as improve my overall health. When I feel good in my skin I am more motivated to eat healthy and inspire others to do the same. I would like to inspire my children to look after themselves and have pilates as something they incorporate into their lives as well. Now that my youngest is at full time school, I’ll actually have time to do something for me. And hopefully I can convince my 19 year old daughter to join me at pilates.

    Love that you guys are gifting 3 months of pilates to one very lucky person, the more we can help others, the better our community is. Thank you

    I would really love a membership for reformer Pilates as a new mom of my 5 month old baby I have been waiting for an opportunity to get to start Pilates. I am in the process of getting my body back into shape to continue playing professional basketball and run a 13k in October. After having a baby my body has not bounced back as quickly as I had hoped and I know Pilates will really benefit me.

    This opportunity is one which I would jump at. I am a mother of a 5 year old and 2 year old who usually works three days per week in a high pressure role. During the pandemic I was stood down from work and was at home full time with my young kids. I am breastfeeding and cosleeping with my toddler and was experiencing alot of extreme shoulder pain. After being sent for an MRI I discovered I have degenerative spine disease at the ripe old age of 35. I am an avid runner and have been told the best thing I can do for my back is yoga and pilates. I already adore pilates but have struggled to find time to fit in more than one session per week between work and family commitments. While I am not working it would be an amazing opportunity to dedicate some time to my wellbeing as it is definitely something I neglect. As a type A personality I am also really struggling not having my usual routine and projects to fall back on so I know this would be a fantastic thing for my mental health as well. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    I have been wanting to get back into Pilates for so long, money has been a big barrier so getting the opportunity to have a free membership and trying before I commit would be fantastic!

    I just really need to get out of the house and my head (and body) into a better space! I turned down work at the start of the COVID crisis to become a home school teacher (definitely not my calling in life) and look after my very elderly parents. Now school is back, my husband is back his office, and there is no work around. It seems as though everyone else’s lives in my household have gone back to near normal… except mine! I feel like I have lost my mojo a bit and need to find it again. HELP!

      Hi, we have all been affected physically, mentally & emotionally with the crisis from CoVid19. For sure, we did our bit to get our spirits up and get ourselves fit while we are in ISO. My daughter & I walked, swam & did some yoga pose by the beach everyday. We felt good but to get back & to do the real stuff & be with people is the best feeling. Can’t wait to get going for the real buzz, adrenaline going, meet people & get started. Oh, to be honest, I’ve not been to Best Body Duncraig. But there’s always a start, hopefully this one.

This special time out for me, gave me the energy & strength to get through my week. My journey was cut short due to Covid 19. Since then the stressful demands of being a teacher during this time whilst parenting and homeschooling and running a family have taken a toll. I’ve stiffened up, lost sleep & energy and feel generally ‘blah’ in comparison to when I was at Best Body. I’d love to win this to be the best I can be, not only for myself but for every-Body I support around me.

    I have Covid-19 hunch! 8 weeks sat on my (rapidly expanding) butt staring at a computer screen for 10 hours a day has turned my core to jelly and given me the upper body silhouette of a 90 year old! Committed to getting a massive boost out of my Best Body Free pass and hoping it’s the start of a leaner, taller (!) future!!

    Sounds just what the Dr ordered, literally as I have just been diagnosed with an Auto Immune Disease and desperately want to lose weight, build muscle and improve my overall mental and well-being

    Thank you so much Scott for the opportunity to win a 3 month membership . I am sure that everyone who has entered absolutely deserves this, as we all have different situations happening in our lives which affect us.

    I am almost 56 and suffer from depression. About 9 months ago the stress and hectic pace of our busy lifestyles become so overwhelming for me that I began having panic attacks and extreme anxiety.

    I saw my GP and she recommended I see a psychiatrist to help me learn how to recognise and manage this which has been a huge help for me. One of the main points was to do exercises such as Pilates and Yoga which will make me connect and focus more on calming my mind and body.

    This is when my daughter searched for Pilates in our local area and we tried one of your classes. I had heard about Reformer Pilates before and about the benefits so I was really excited to try it.
    I loved the class we attended, the studio was so beautifully presented and our teacher was lovely. Unfortunately this was just before the COVID-19 pandemic, which unfortunately has been a very confronting time for me, as with everyone I’m sure.

    So my reason for entering is to get the
    Best body
    Best mind
    Best mental wellness

    Thank you again for this opportunity and good luck to all who have entered ☺️

    In these times of uncertainty our health has to be front of mind. After being stood down, initially in March (now until the end of July) I think it is time I started looking after me for once. My fitness has been put to the side whilst looking after my elderly parents, children and husband over this time and selfish as it may seem, It is my time to look after myself.

    Hello

    I joined BB Duncraig 12 months ago, a few months after having a double mastectomy, after being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 29. I had lost so much movement in my left arm, and was scared that this was not going to improve, unless I really did something to help. I put my faith in pilates and gave it a shot! I have been blown away by my improvement, I would say my range of movement has almost returned to normal, I just have a bit of pulling on my scar line which i need to work on.

    The last 12 months have been tough, I am still receiving treatment and sometimes I am too tired or feeling ill and getting motivated to make it to class is tough, but when I go i feel so much better. It is basically the only exercise and recovery I have managed to do. I am working less due to treatment, and it has definitely been a struggle to afford the classes, and I would love the chance to be able to go three times a week 🙂

    This pandemic has been hard, I have done no exercise or movement and already I am struggling so much again with my left arm and my chest and arm strength. I cannot WAIT to get back to classes!!!

    I would love a three month membership. I was a member when Duncraig first opened and went almost daily. It was of great benefit to my back and knee and I really enjoyed the classes, instructions and other members. It was a real ‘little family’ and a great start to the day.
    However I lost my job mid-year last year and was unable to continue, sadly, due to costs. I am still looking for work and Mr Covid hasn’t helped my situation. However over the last few months my knee, back and my foot, which is riddled with arthritis have prevented me from doing much exercise. I am unfit, and stacking on the weight.
    I found pilates very beneficial. The instructors and staff very excellent and I loved attending classes.
    I would love to be able to afford to go back so that I can start giving my body the attention and love it deserves…..before I turn the dreaded 6-0 in August, but until work comes my way, or I am lucky enough to win a membership, it’s not likely.

    Since doing Pilates my back has improved immensely not to mention gaining more strength in my legs, energy and general well being.
    Thank you
