    I have been experiencing back pain since my 4th baby was born – he is now 7! After many tests and numerous years of various treatments, my rheumatologist suggested pilates would be good for easing the pain and to help maintain flexibility as well as keeping my body active.
    I am super keen to give pilates a good go to see if I can get some kind of normality back in to my life!

  2. Val Sinclair Day

    I’m a 67yr (…….just a number)young pensioner!
    My aim is to keep physically in shape for as long as I possibly can as one never knows whats around the corner!
    Initially, the classes were a big challenge for me as most of the class is half (or less) my age. Not any more….just love it!! The instructors are amazing and I am so motivated to come to a class each time!

      Getting rid of those 10kgs that I gained in the last 18months would be such an amazing achievement. Doing something that I love – REFORMER – would make the progress a lot easier.

      • Rosalba Bottega

        I’m going to be honest I dislike exercise but since trying reformer Pilates at Innaloo I can honestly say I’ve found something that’s working for me. And, to top it off my shoulder stopped hurting while I was attending. Sadly the pain is starting up again. I’m hoping I’ll get back into it and the shoulder will stop hurting again with the added benefit of the rest of my body improving it’s movement abs flexibility.

    O my goodness I can hand on heart say I know that doing reformer pilates is the very best thing I have ever done for my body. I have arthritis very badly in my knees and it is now in my fingers, toes and ankles. When we had to stop there was a huge impact on my body, I have been trying to be good with the excercise bike but my knees were getting in a very bad way again. I have been back doing classes since we were allowed and the difference it has made to me mentally and physically is dramatic. I had always thought that maybe I could do excercises by myself and avoid the cost of classes – well hello reality!
    I love the classes and the committment that I make to going to them every week really impacts on my entire wellbeing. I thank the day I walked into Happy Physio those years ago and thank Best Body for allowing me to keep going and work my way through the pain and increase my strength.

    Hi Scott. Hesitate about how to answer this as I don’t want to do the whole poor me sad pain misery life spiel because positivity and mental outlook really is where the other results all begin. But, in the interest of honesty, my answer is my personal story and truth. I had a pretty blessed life leading up to my 20s. Only child , healthy , western suburb schools and home, every opportunity possible etc etc. around 22 I started to experience terrible stabbing pains through my hips, one or the other at a time. I went to doctors , Physios, chiros, scans , bloods , acupuncture , swimming etc. you name it. Nothing came of it. Was repeatedly told I was crazy and healthy and it was all in my head. I knew it wasn’t though. Throughout my 20s the pain spread to my back and became worse. Each time I would have an episode it would be completely debilitating. It got to the point where i woke up and would not get out of bed as the pain to weight bare was just too intense and I would be alone and screaming out , wetting myself because I could not make it to the bathroom to relieve myself. This happened on more than one occasion. I was so desperate for relief. I knew I couldn’t live this way and considered taking my own life a few times more than I care to admit now. It was just awful. I tried to stay positive but pain like that is all consuming. In the end I was seeing yet another Physio and she suggested I have my inflammatory markers tested and ask my doctor for such. I agreed dejectedly. Surely they would have done that on one of the other many occasions I had gone and left with only opioid pain killers!? But she was right. They were through the roof. Over this time the flare ups of my pain reached breaking point and I decided to try reformer Pilates. I had heard about it from an old friend and remembered her positive comments. Well. It saved my life ! Pilates brought me back from the brink of giving up and gave me relief that I had never thought I could experience after years of such awful pain. I felt light , happy and most importantly , hopeful for my future , for the first time in 8 years. Unfortunately life took another hard turn when my father passed away followed not long after by a devastating break up from my long term partner. This resulted in me moving into a place of my own here in innaloo for the first time in my life. And I then joined best body. I hadn’t been back long when the Covid crisis occurred and it’s been a hard time. Thank you so very much for considering me.

  5. Teraza Faulkner

    I’ve been a member of innaloo best body since opening ! Absolutely loved my sessions with the team and then covid – 19 hit ! It affected my life in quite a big way as I’m a scientist at Pathwest and I worked directly with the testing of samples during this crisis time . 13 – 14 hour shifts to combat the pressures of testing , little time with my family , huge stress and very little time for anything other than sleep and eating . I feel my stress levels have attributed to tension and locking up of my lower back . With lower back pain , I have restricted movement . What I’ve noticed most about not being apart of BB innaloo over the last few months is having a lack of community spirit in my life , all working towards the same outcome of healthy body and healthy mind . My body is craving it’s reformer routine , not only to gain back healthy routine , but I’ve lost tone and I’ve lost core strength !!! I’ve felt somewhat honored and privileged to be able to work first hand making a difference during the pandemic , yet I’m dying to get back to BB innaloo !! Please open your doors !!!

    • Linnie

      Coronavirus has made 2020 seem like a scary nightmare,

      The thought of socialising felt like a dangerous dare.

      Boxing and gyms were normally my escape route,

      But since covid Closed them down I thought online Pilates looked rather cute!

      Stretching, muscle burning and aches for days,

      Pilates gave me strength, a sense of release I have nothing but praise!

      I’d love to try out Pilates at best body innaloo,

      So please pick me I’d love to be apart of your crew!!!

    • Beth

      As a Community mental health worker I have spent the pandemic assisting others to manage stress levels and find balance in their lives while staying home and keeping safe. Now I would love to improve the balance in my own life and increase my exercise to help manage my own mental health so I can continue to help others, as I know you can’t fill from an empty cup!! Best body Innaloo sounds like the nurturing community that will be perfect to do it in.

    I haven’t yet tried Reformer Pilates and have been waiting to start it soon. After the birth of my first child, I have had issues with my pelvis. I feel this is a great time for me to try it out and having a free membership would be the best thing at the moment.

    Good luck everyone

  7. Sarah langham

    I love BB!
    I’ve refused memberships for fitness for years – I believe in self discipline when it comes to all goals in life especially fitness so have always opted for self directed fitness – outdoor activity mainly. However, since joining Bb, my body has responded like never before. It’s the ‘Gold’ element to what I do day to day – refining, toning, strengthening the finer areas of my body.
    I adore your vision and your team, and thoroughly enjoy every class!

  8. Amanda Lekias

    So far I’ve had 4 classes with Victoria. I was a bit apprehensive at first as I have chronic neck and shoulder issues. Previously, I’ve done yoga and gym workouts, but not enjoyed the vibe and always ended up injured. Victoria’s instructions are very clear, she is super supportive, and she recommends modifications to suit me. The atmosphere is friendly and I love how warm and relaxed I feel after the class. Best of all, my neck and shoulder are ok. I’m looking forward to getting right into Pilates as I finally feel I’ve found the right workout for my mind and body at the right place – Best Body.

  9. Giorgia

    I was training 3 times per week before starting reformer pilates without getting any results. I was doing boxing, hiit, trx, nothing helped me getting fitter and with more energy. I started reformer pilates because I wanted something different for myself. It was a big effort economically but I was feeling flat every morning, no energy, bad mood, no confident anymore so I needed to do something to chance the situation.
    After my second pregnancy I struggled to get back on track, I still have to lose 7 kilos, and my body is not tone anymore.
    But mainly I wasn’t happy. Reformer pilates helped me a lot in a short time, then I had to stop because of the covid-19.
    I have tried to join the online sessions but with 2 little kids running around was impossible.
    The last couple of months have been really hard. I am from Italy and the whole family is over there. I am an only child and my parents are divorced so seeing my mum on her own, locked inside the house for months was intense and I couldn’t do anything. I was planning to go there in June to have a break after my university’s exams but I had to cancel everything. So now I will see my mum after 2 years.
    I really want to go back to reformer pilates to find again the better version of myself, to gain more confidence and be able to wake up in the morning happy again.

  10. Chelsea

    Hi Scott, thank you for this wonderful initiative and for this opportunity to participate! I signed up for the gold membership at Innaloo the Friday before Scomo called for gyms to be closed 🙁 I was so excited to get into it and commit to regular pilates at the the innaloo studio and so disappointed when I wasn’t able to… I have been doing reformer pilates on and off at different places for a few years now. However, at the start of the year I got a different job that is a 1 hour drive each way from home (I live in Innaloo) and found that I couldn’t go to the classes as it was too far of a drive everyday. I was really struggling to keep up with my fitness and my physical and mental health really took a hit. Like many others here, I have suffered from chronic neck and shoulder pain resulting in frequent debilitating migraines and I found that doing reformer really helped! What I was also really excited to try out was the flex and stretch class at the innaloo studio as I feel like the combination with the usual reformer classes would be a great balance. I am also terrible at motivating myself to exercise so I find that having classes booked in really helps me stay in line – so as you can imagine the last few months have not been my best! However, in all the craziness and sadness in this time, my partner and I got engaged and so now I REALLY need to get back in shape before the wedding (when we can eventually have one!!) If I was lucky enough to win I would love to give best body a good go and I would also be so appreciative of the financial relief! I would love to get back on the journey of improving my mental and physical health with best body 🙂

  11. Amanda Taggart

    I’m not a “oooo I love exercise” person! However I LOVE LOVE LOVE reformer Pilates it has been my saving grace this year, both physically &mentally! I was so sad when it shut down ☹️ Covid-19 has affected everyone someway. My mental health has struggled recently & BB@home has kept me going, even when I didn’t want to do it, I DID as I knew it was what I needed and I would fell amazing after! The excitement of going back to reformer for me is intense! Not long now Thank you to all the BB team you’ve kept me on track and brightened my spirts.

  12. Kathryn

    I absolutely love your pregnancy reformer classes in North Perth and continued doing the pregnancy mat online, I strongly believe they helped with my labor as it was very quick! I’d love to get back into reformer now that my babies born and help get my body back. The instructors were so great throughout my pregnancy, particularly during isolation when I was home everyday, the morning log in to the live classes became my favorite part of the day, I felt like I became virtual friends with the instructors 🙂
    I’m so excited for face to face classes to be coming back. I’d love to be considered for this offer 🙂

  13. Jeni Miller

    I’ve taken up running during Iso which I have never ever done! I normally train with weights and HIIT however isolation got me out of the house and running daily…. now i have a saggy bum, arms and tummy!? I actually can’t believe how much tone i have lost – looking at Pilates reformer to get the TONE back! Worth a shot right!? x

  14. Sharon Thomas

    I believe that a Best Body Reformer Pilates membership would assist me on my quest to get back in shape and be the best version of myself possible.
    Reformer Pilates is low impact, provides a full body workout that builds strength, muscle tone, flexibility and balance. All of these positives improve physical, mental and emotional well being.
    My focus is a holistic approach of total well-being and i believe regular Reformer Pilates will play a big part in achieving this goal. I have seen the difference in both my mind and body when i attend Reformer Pilates on a regular basis.

  15. Catherine Tonkin

    Best Body Reformer Pilates membership would help me enormously after being unable to attend classes over the last couple of months due to Covid19. Before the closures I had started Reformer Pilates at Best Body approximately 2 months prior. I was loving how my body was adjusting to all the new moves to help tone, stretch and help with a dodgy back/glute issue I have had for a couple of years. The results were amazing after just a couple of months. I was planning to upgrade to 3 classes per week, until sadly all came to end with the closure. Both physically and mentally returning back to the studio would be amazing for me and I look forward to seeing the wonderful team there. Thanks!~

  16. Catherine Tonkin

    Best Body Reformer Pilates membership would help me enormously ongoing after the closures due to Covid19. I joined Best Body about two months before the closure and during that time I was so happy with the toning, stretching and alleviation of my bad back/glute that it provided. Physically and mentally the positive Pilates has provided me has been outstanding. I can’t wait to return to the studio. Thanks.

  17. Tina

    2020 was meant to be my year! After being diagnosed with a neurological condition in late 2018, I set myself a goal to complete a half Ironman in May 2020. It was the only thing keeping me sane and giving me direction; both mentally and physically. Covid happened. My small business was reduced to zero. It has affected my mindset and has given me doubts about the event postponement to October 2020. Will I ACTUALLY be able to do it? Will I PHYSICALLY be able to compete? And will I FINANCIALLY be able to provide myself with the best chance? I’m trying to be optimistic, but this would be a dream!

  18. Clara Bravo

    Hi guys, I hope you’re all having a great day. Okay, my story.
    Mum of 3, boy and identical twin girls. They are 29 son and 25 daughters.
    My body has had it fair share of ups and downs. Depression, which I’m still on meds( life savers) Operations, endometriosis, knee operation, ankle operation. I’ll stop, don’t want to bore you all.
    Anyway, I was umming and arring, about Joining BB for so long, having very low self confidence and worth.
    My hubby (Salv) encouraged me to join, and joined BB as well with me, to motivate me.
    As a couple, we absolutely love coming to BB Innaloo, it is strengthened our bodies, but also our bond.
    We love the commitment of your beautiful staff, helping us along the way. Encouraging and challenging us to challenge ourselves.
    BB has become a part of our life now, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
    Clara & Salv

    Wow what an exciting time we are living through, I have a business and a family, the Pandemic has certainly brought about change and for me focus, we have made moves to work part time, we live the new norm, 31 years of hairdressing has given me an amazing life and a creative outlet, but also nerve pain pins and needles and bouts of Migraines,, I have overcome this with Masage and acupuncture and chiro, Pilates especially reformer I’m told will not only strengthen and streatch me but give a new lease of life, which is exactly where I’m at, the focus that covid 19 has brought about has led me to pursue my passion for art, I am taking a lease on a studio and I intend to paint every free moment.. I will need Pilates yo help me achieve my goals of an exhibition next year, the physical aspect of my job and my craft require long periods of standing arms up at shoulder hight or bent over,, if I am lucky enough to to be chosen for the free trial period, not only will it support And enableme physically but financially As well I’ll have more available $$ for art supply and I’ll be fit enough To pursue my dream.

  20. Maree

    Hi Scott, My pregnant Daughter introduced me to BB, so I am new to this. The classes I took were fun, very personal with welcoming and warm instructors, a workout, realised my balance wasn’t that great, and it started to make a difference with my health and wellbeing. I have a job that can be quite stressful and found I forgot about everything for those 45 minutes. Soon to be a nanni for the 3rd time, I’m so excited. I’m not a gym person and really love the atmosphere at BB as I said it is personal and you are not just a number. I would like to focus and work on my core, leg and arm strength, also tone and become fit again. Okay, the backside and tummy have gained a little of the covid thing. However, with a little bit of BB, I may get the best bum not big bum.

    I wish everyone good luck. Thank you for taking the time reading this.

    Hi Scott,
    Covid 19 has really affected everyone, I need to remind myself how lucky we are and how grateful I am to live in this country.
    And hats off to you for offering this to a lucky winner!
    I’ve lived in Melbourne for the past 2.5 year’s since Corona I lost my job and financially was force to move back to home. Blessing in disguise I’d say, the sun shine alone is worth being home for!
    Being over East I found Pilates helpful , I didn’t realise how much I would miss it until it’s been taken away
    What’s that saying
    “Don’t know what ya got until it’s gone”
    Physically I feel like I’ve lost my muscles and tone, which I would love to get back
    Mentally I’ve felt very stuck, treading water and almost a bit in limbo with moving back into an environment where I don’t have stability.
    I can’t wait to start finding my feet again, getting a job and settling into some sort of routine.
    Membership have a funny way of making you accountable for your time and energy and the classes always give me guidance and clarity.
    Reading the above comments there are more deserving people for this.
    I just wanted to share my thoughts, having a fitness community does really help motivate me

  22. Birgit Irving

    I was so looking forward to starting my journey on politis training and along came covid 19. I haven’t lost the motivation or enthusiasm yet so I look forward to start ASAP and finally tone up and loose my 3 covid kegs.

  23. Danielle Harsant

    I you think a Best Body Reformer Pilates membership can help me over the next 3 months, coming out of this pandemic as I really need to start focusing on being kinder to the body I have.
    I have been lifting weights and running for as long as I can remember to keep my body in shape. Now that I am getting older, my body is starting to say enough is enough. Constant pulled muscles and aching bones is my body telling me to find something that is going to be kinder on the joints.
    I have done reformer pilates after the birth of my first child and found this to be gentle on the body and still giving you an awesome work out. Best Body also sounds like the perfect place to start again as it sounds like they really care about the welling being of the client and not just being another number.

  24. Lisa Hall

    I am a Registered Nurse working in one of Perth’s tertiary hospitals on the front line. It’s been a strange time for us, quite stressful at times but we’re counting ourselves lucky so far with the pandemic. I am also a single mum to 3 kids, the youngest just turning 18! It’s time for me and because I want to continue to work in my physically and mentally demanding job for as long as I can I think I need to start by taking care of my body. I have done a bit of reformer pilates in the past and love it but would really love the chance to get into it properly!!

  25. Megan Curren

    What a great offer and I’m sure it will be difficult to select just one member as the winner!
    In an effort to keep my somewhat long story short, I moved to Perth from South Australia almost 6 months ago now as I wanted to be closer to my niece, and desperately wanted to change the lifestyle and bad habits I’d fallen into for so many years before while living in the small rural town I was born.
    We all have life challenges and I’m not wanting this to be a ‘poor me’ story, but over the last 10 years while trying to cope with the stresses of family, work and my own depression, I became less active, somewhat reclusive and relied heavily on alcohol to get through the days. While I knew all too well that these habits were not healthy, prioritising my own health and happiness was always pushed to the end of the long line of things I needed to do.
    One year ago I was over 100kg, and an alcohol dependent, occasionally happy single lady in my (almost) mid-forties, with sleep apnea, and a multitude of health conditions to be wary of. Today, I’m still single and closer to the actual mid-forties, but much happier when I enjoy beach walks and play time with my niece, and thanks to 12 months of no booze, my liver and kidneys are happy too! (weight is unchanged)
    Earlier this year once settled in my new home, I joined Best Body and was feeling really good…my muscles hurt in the best way, and my body shape was starting to change, and even though that scales stayed the same, I felt soo positive about the future; until the day of my one-month review, and that damned coronavirus threw up a curve ball.
    You closed your doors, isolation began, and when I started to lose hours at work, I reached the point where I had to again prioritise, and sadly, my reformer pilates membership was the first to go…and I miss it!
    But of course I’m not giving up, and was currently looking at options for a second income so that I can reinstate my membership when I saw your email, so I thought why not ask for a little help to clear my path to a health happy me again!
    No doubt I’ll see you soon, but until then, happy reading!

  26. Sarah Pagett

    I have Cystic Fibrosis and am a double lung transplant recipient. I celebrated my 18 year lungsiversary last week, meaning I’ve had these lungs longer than my own! While I’m really healthy, my drugs cause muscle wasting, so I’m in completely terrible shape post isolation! It is imperative that I maintain my core strength. The reformer makes exercise comfortable, given the wires in my chest. Would LOVE to be considered.

  27. Louise

    I would be a newbie to Reformer Pilates!

    In the last 7 years I have had 7 pregnancies. Unfortunately 4 of these resulted in miscarriages and that has left me with 3 healthy beautiful babies under 4. My youngest is 7 months.

    I had knee surgery a year ago and fell pregnant with my third baby not long after. I still suffer from knee pain when trying to do any impact exercise. A girlfriend had recommended that Reformer Pilates would be able to help.

    I turn 40 in July and I’d love nothing more than to do something just for me, help me feel strong and fit again and to lose my excess baby weight.

    I’d love to go into my next decade feeling confident and trusting in my body again.

    Thanks for the opportunity to submit my entry to this amazing prize!

  28. Michelle

    I was attending reformer Pilates classes at The Pregnancy Studio until I was 37 weeks pregnant, then I had my baby in March. Since he was born we have been in lockdown and it’s definitely not been the experience I imagined with my first baby. I envisioned sharing the joy of my newborn baby with my family (who live interstate) and my husbands family. But due to border shutdowns and local lockdowns, I have missed out on this experience, which has negatively impacted my mental health. When I attended reformer Pilates before my baby (and lockdown), I felt strong, confident and happy – I can’t wait to get back to reformer Pilates at Innaloo to feel this way again and improve my mental health.

  29. Sarah

    Hi I have been watching your posts on Facebook and Best Body is such a great community, I love going to the classes and having the reformer to use. Pilates is such a positive and life changing way to exercise it really aligns your body and mind. I found this out after I broke my leg on a skiing accident in Canada and flew home not realising! I had a lot of rehab and Pilates was the one thing that worked.
    Thanks so much for providing such a great community!

  30. Jane Padilla

    Discovered your studio and loved coming doing Pilates since joining.
    Simple as that Best Body + Best Pilates = Best Me

  31. Mischa Cousins

    I’d love to win this so I could come in on my way home from work and spend some me time nurturing myself before the evening parent duties start…
    I need to work on my core, flexibility and strength.
    It would be amazing.

  32. Dianne Webb

    I used to do floor pilates and loved it so much. Since the lock down I have noticed that my body is getting less flexible and I cannot get up and down from the floor easily.
    I would love to try Reformer Pilates as my daughter has started doing it and loves it.
    I need to lift my energy levels and my mindset about being more active and get the energy levels that I used to have. I would love to win this amazing gift.Thank you.

  33. Kristy Heal

    Hi Scott, I am so excited about the reopening of the studio. I managed to lose 6.5kgs during isolation with disciplined eating, mat pilates and walking. I have 2kgs to go until I am back to my pre baby weight but the true prize will be having my strength and tone back which I get through reformer pilates. After I had my twins 2 years ago, reformer pilates (Leederville studio) got me back in shape and now after having my 3rd baby 5 months ago it will do the same both physically and mentally. I love the Innaloo studio, the instructors, staff and community are just wonderful and make it such a wonderful place to go to!

  34. Mala

    So this whole week I have been conflicted whether to do this because like most people it’s hard to be open about my struggle.
    But why not take a chance right.
    So I was always slim and had no issue with weight growing up but due to life circumstances I started to comfort eat, at first I didn’t even realise I was doing it. After having my son 5 years ago I have been trying to get back into shape and lose weight because I really want the outside to match the inside. I do not want to feel tired, continue with back and neck pain which ultimately leaves me suffering with headaches. I am a single mother so I want to be strong and healthy for my son and for myself. I have tried weight training, regular gym but it’s just not for me. Anyway that is some of my story 🙂
