    Reformer Pilates at Best Body Leederville has been my saviour. After surgery on my knee from a torn meniscus, I spent 10 months hobbling around in pain during which I went back to the surgeon 3 times because my knee wasn’t getting better. Then I went to a Best Body physio, and that together with doing reformer 3 times per week (and Better Body At Home Pilates during covid), I’m not hobbling any more. I’m able to walk my dog like a normal person and be pain free. Plus my 48-year-old body is stronger, more toned and my shape has changed. I’ve lost a little weight and I’m on track to keep going to reach my goal. I started wearing sleeveless tops again! Mentally too I’m a better person, less stressed, and I feel good. I’m looking forward to getting back into the studio – the classes are challenging but I feel amazing afterwards. All that for just 45 mins three time per week. The investment in the membership is definitely worth it.

      The end of last year and this year so far have been the hardest months of my life. Going from a national competitive rhythmic gymnast and rock climber to not being able to pick up a plate, out on a shirt or even tie up my own hair… With no warning signs, both of my shoulders started sublaxing and then on Christmas Eve, I picked up a kettle (tea) and my right shoulder dislocated. After weeks of hip pain due to not being able to use my arms and overuse of my legs, I found out I also have bilateral hip labral tears- 2 in each hip plus fraying! On top of all of this I have tendonosis in both glutes and knee pain. I have been in rehab mode for over 7 months now and reformer Pilates at Best Body helped me strengthen the muscles around my hips and get rid of my pain. I have never been able to recommend doing something more than reformer at best body, and at the ripe old age of (just turned) 22, I believe reformer Pilates is truly for everyone and will always be in my fitness routine.

        I used to go to my Physio frequently with lower back issues and have had a prolapsed disc twice. I have been doing Pilates at BB for the last 2 years and only been to the Physio once during this time.
        Also my shape has changed, I am proud of my smaller tighter butt! Let alone feeling stronger, it’s the best exercise I have ever done ✅

    I started Pilates at Best Body Leederville 3 months ago due to recurring back pain from an old disk injury. My Osteopath suggested my back would benefit from improving my core strength. I’ve done Pilates mat work in the past but decided to give reformer Pilates a go to really give my back the best possible chance of recovery. After 3 months of lessons twice weekly, my strength and flexibility has improved significantly and my back is the best it’s ever felt. I love the variety the classes offer and I always come out feeling like I’ve had a great workout. The way I feel after a class is totally addictive. I feel taller and completely energised. It’s the best way to start the day!

      Reformer pilates has been my game changer. Having suffered sciatica and hip flexor pain for a couple of years, I was left unable to sit/stand or exercise comfortably. Everything I did caused pain, driving longer than 30 minutes left my legs and ankles throbbing. I remember driving back from Dunsborough and feeling the constant ache from under my leg all the way to my ankle and the only thing that helped was digging my fingers deep into my leg to stop the pain, got some lovely bruising from that. Years of physio appointments and sports massage didn’t little to help. So, this is where reformer came in. After speaking to a colleague who said her shoulder pain completely diminished after she started reformer classes I decided to give it a go. I was pretty skeptical to say the least and didnt even notice an improvement until I remembered this pain I used to get but couldnt recall the last time I felt it. Must have been within 3-4 weeks of twice weekly classes. Was so happy, not only could I stop all the painful sports massages but I found something I enjoyed that also gave me a mental escape & chillout session. Unfortunately, the pain has come back but I’m looking forward to restarting classes so I can resume that pain free lifestyle!

    We Are safe and well and in a new world now,
    Grateful and blessed, but have been anxious and down,

    Pilates was a mental health tool for me,
    A bonus in that is has helped me lose 20kg – yippee!!

    Spirits have been low, finances chronic,
    A free 3 month membership the perfect tonic!

    Getting back to my goals, my Pilates family and the reformer,

    I can’t wait to see you all, and become a star performer.

    Back to good habits, no more sofa or guilty sins,
    Bring on my Best Body and all of the wins!

    It will literally save me a fortune as I wont have to buy a whole new wardrobe to cover the amout of weight I have put on since classes stopped! 🙂

    We have had a tough year with my daughter being diagnosed with a mental health condition. As part of her treatment we were told exercise will help her. We have spent a fortune on gym membership, group classes, swimming but have never found something that worked for either of us. Reform Pilates in Leedie was the last chance salon for us. I went into skeptical and said it would be another waste of money and time but for my daughters sake I said I would give it a shot. Wow – I could not have been more wrong…the setup, the professionalism, the friendliness of not only the instructors but also the admin support. There have been times when my daughter had to be hospitalised and the girls in admin have been so supportive in making sure that her membership was suspended until she returned. I never thought that I would ever go to any form of exercise class never mind go on my own but I love it – my daughter loves it and we cant wait to get back at it! Even through COVID you guys have stayed in touch. For me personal = this is my time to focus on me. of course I want to lose the weight but having that time to focus on my mind has become so important to me. For my daughters mental health she has found something that works for her and just like me she cannot wait to get back. Winner or not – cant wait!

    I would encourage everyone to be honest and do not go to the class if they maybe could have covid 19. All the students should clean everything before and after use the machine to feel safe. The class should not be crowded. Between one class and another teacher should clean everything again and keep the front door open. The air conditioner should be cleaned before classes beginning.At the toilet only paper towel . Everyone should leave the shoes at the front door.

    Bring back my pilates! My back pain is back and driving me crazy. I need Roberta to sort me out. I miss her blended Australian /Brazilian accent and her inability to count sequentially. She always gets caught repeating the number 3 to inflict some additional pain on me. I hope over the break she has been able to get some assistance with her counting! Pilates has been transformational for me and without the support and professionalism of the team I have been struggling to put my jocks on every morning!

    I have been doing Reformer Pilates at Best Body Leederville 3 times a week now religiously for just on three years. I have never been more excited to get out of bed to get to my classes each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

    I absolutely adore the instructors. They are the best at what they do.

    What started off as a way to exercise and keep fit turned into an absolute life saver during the breakdown of my marriage. I lost close to 20kg and my 45 minutes three times a week became the glue that kept me together mentally as well as physically.

    I cannot wait to get back to my routine because I have really missed it.

    Hi Scott

    Firstly big thanks to you and the team for doing such an amazing job!

    My journey with Reformer Pilates started about a year ago after a friend introduced me to it. And what a journey it has been!

    My strenght and flexibility have increased tremendously. My muscles are more toned and dress sizes keep dropping. At the beginning I was struggling to go through the full class without a break. And in short 4- 5 months I was able to do two classes one after the other! And I was able to hold plank for 2.30 minutes ( PB ever). I am addicted!!!

    Being impressed with my results my partner joined the Reformer Pilates club too.

    Regrettably, my amazing journey came to a halting stand in late January 2020. Diagnosis of ovarian cancer meant I had to have a major surgery and undergo chemotherapy treatment (still continuing).

    And then just as I got all clear to go back to excercise the COVID-19 storm hit.

    The benefits from the Reformer Pilates classes for me are both physical and mental. At the end of a busy day at work these 45 minutes are for me alone. I take care of my body and my mind. And then I walk out renewed and re-energised ready to face whatever challenges come my way. And more so during these challenging times my hopes are that the exercise will help me deal with the side effects from the chemotherapy and the life after treatment is over.

    Thank you very much for this opportunity.

    How do I think BB Reformer Pilates can help me? Well, first it will help me keep fit and healthy and renew my strength – my job, as a mental health professional means I do a lot of sitting and by the end of the day, it sometimes seems like my (65 year old) hips have forgotten how to straighten. Pre-covid, 3 months of regular Pilates had already made significant changes to that. When I feel fit and healthy, like everybody else, it means that the world is full of sunshine, whatever the weather. This is infectious and so the people that I work with are greeted with a quiet sense of peace and an island of calm in an otherwise changing and confusing world. Three months of Pilates, and all the months after that, mean that I grow and stay fitter and stronger and healthier and am less likely to need our amazing health care system – it means that I can not only work, but also volunteer and play a little too.
    The other aspects are the routine provided by the classes; the lovely way to start the day and the fact that it is so much easier to exercise properly when going to a class as opposed to doing it at home; the ability to focus completely on how my body is working, because the instructor is in charge; And, as my hips loosen, I’ll be back to throwing my leg over my bicycle and wont need to use the car so much … happy environment. Who knew how much of the world Pilates could impact.

    The membership over the next three months will help me find myself again. I really enjoy reformer and when COVID happened I became lost. I am an “essential worker” as a scientist so that aspect of my life didn’t change, but everything else did. I didn’t realize how much good those reformer classes were doing for my mental state and how I felt about myself. I tried exercising at home and going for walks, but it was so irregular. I have a young child and the “getting out” to exercise and having a routine was so much more important than I realized. I can’t wait to get back and find the person I lost during the pandemic.

    Well I have to say that not being able to do Pilates at Leederville has been one of the most disappointing parts of this pandemic, and I realised the extreme gravity of it all when Mark McGowan turned Rottnest Island into a quarantine zone !!!!!

    I’m 55 now and Reformer Pilates has been the one physical activity that I have continued to really enjoy since joining

    I may appear fairly fit but was pretty soft before I started , and have grown so much stronger since , I never knew I had a “core” till I tried and surprisingly it still seems to be there !!!

    As a nurse I’ve inherited “nurses back” which is fairly inevitable but Pilates has helped so much with that and more

    All your instructors are fabulous and I really enjoy the camaraderie you get from the group experience

    If you look at my membership details you will see that I had to take 6 months leave ( because I couldn’t drive ) ( guess the reason if you want ) and so tried a rival studio in a nearby suburb that I could walk to and was slightly cheaper but it just didn’t live up to the experience that I had at Leederville

    I can’t wait to return , I’ve done lots of walking but it just doesn’t “cut the mustard” as they say

    Reformer Pilates ticks so many boxes : gentle on your joints, lots of fun, great for your core and subsequently your back , banishes bingo wings and contributes to all over toning, and absolutely fabulous for your mental health as well

    In fact, I can’t live without it !!!!!
    Bring it back Scott , I’m more than ready !!!!!!!!

    I didn’t realise how much my reformer Pilates were helping me stay upright & mobile until I stopped ! I ride horses for a living & have had a few serious falls damaging my back, pelvis & nerves down the right side of my body, my right leg withered away & used to just give way & collapse randomly, I also struggled constantly with intense nerve pain. Needless to say I was in a pretty bad way mentally loosing a lot of self confidence & balance – which isn’t great when you’re trying to work riding & educating horses. The reformer pilates sessions allow me to refocus / connect / balance & align my body – with the BB instructors guidance I can concentrate on isolating my individual muscles etc correctly without overloading any other part of my body. Our brains are very clever at re-routing “broken” parts of our body – allowing a certain part to overcompensate for the other – a long term recipe for disaster ! The reformer is a fantastic low impact method of correct rehabilitation- I learnt to function & move correctly again & freed my body from constant pain – I was coming 3 times a week – driving all the way into Leederville from Gidgegannup to attend classes with your special instructors Mikayla / Elanora/ Gabbrielle & the lady who’s name escapes me but she did the wonderful Monday 7am stretch class – anyway Covid has impacted us all – I had an awesome job lined up in Victoria but had to return to WA / I have tried the the Pilates anytime app at home for mat classes but it is not the same – unfortunately the covid has affected my work & financially I can’t manage a membership at the moment so I would appreciate anything on offer

    In a nutshell, being in my early 50’s and struggling with the menopause, fatness, loneliness & general low blue feeling that comes with it all, I felt envigorated & full of hope with Pilates. I started off well & could see the inches peel away, but then the dreaded pandemic hit & I fell back a huge number of steps. I need structure & routine, someone to tell me what to do as I can find a zillion excuses not to do any exercise. I’m feeling “groated” – grumpy bloated – & desperately need Pilates to restart my fitness & wellbeing cycle. Feeling good inside & out is the cornerstone of a very happy, contented & fulfilled life … ❤️

    While I have been one of the lucky people to have worked through these past couple of months I have felt the difference of not having my regular morning classes. I have been doing morning classes before work for the past six years and I know that the class sets me up for the rest of the day. My work schedule for the past eight weeks was changed while we worked in teams (in order to lessen the chance of the whole department being closed if one person contracted covid-19) and I have really felt the difference! I am not on facebook so haven’t been able to do any on-line classes and while I have kept doing some basic exercises at home, it just isn’t the same as being in a class. The past couple of weeks I have really begun to feel the discomfort of not doing classes in my hips, knees and back. I miss all ‘my’ instructors hugely and have thought often about how they are managing. I was beyond thrilled when the studio (Leederville) re-opened to limited classes but I have only been able to do the Saturday morning class. Doing the class has certainly reminded me of how not only my body benefits from pilates, but my general well-being. As I have said at the beginning I am one of the lucky ones who was never in danger of losing my job and therefore my income, but the stress of working in a major public hospital which was the nominated one for admission for most of WA’s patients with covid-19 has been felt.

    I had been attending the Leederville studio for nearly a year before the pandemic hit. I was absolutely devastated that my classes at stopped, I was attending until I could not anymore and out of all of the issues associated with COVID, this one was the one that affected me most. I have got fit, toned up and really enjoy the classes, the participants and the instructors, all of which I miss. I have been going back to the studio and enjoying the current sessions but cannot wait for some more regularity. The pilates has really helped me physically but more mentally which is key and I thank you for that.

    My partner was already a member, and had been ‘actively encouraging’ (there is another word) me to join. Being a brave blokey bloke, I actively resisted until I could not ignore the obvious muscle development on various bits of the other half’s female anatomy. As a 67 year old, I had noted that simple tasks – getting in and out of the car, up and down from cushy armchairs, carrying not-that-heavy objects and so on were becoming more difficult; I put this down to advancing years. (I have cancelled all future birthday celebrations)
    So..I (somewhat tentatively) joined. And..fantastic! Two months of classes only before the wretched Covid19 restrictions, my tone and strength had improved to a point where those simple movements were no longer an issue. In fact, I looked forward to doing those movements just to prove to myself how clever I had been in deciding to join BB..
    When classes start again, I am really looking forward to regaining that ease of movement and strength. Thank you BB for showing me a way of more fully enjoying life.

    I started reformer pilates just before Christmas and immediately fell in love with this form of exercise. I am in my early 60s and carrying an old hamstring injury, and I have been looking for a form of exercise that that I both enjoyed (motivation to continue) and benefited from. My strength and flexibility improved markedly within a few weeks. I can now touch my toes, something that I haven’t been able to do for years. I looked forward to my 3 classes a week, particularly as every class was different in some way. I’ve been doing two exercise Physiology classes a week ever since these were offered and am so looking to the reformer pilates starting and seeing our lovely instructors.

    My favourite childhood memory is not having back pain!

    I’ve had back pain since my teens and although it has never stopped me from doing anything it’s been a constant niggle. A niggle that has affected me physically, mentally and emotionally. I first relaised the real toll back pain was taking on me when I got my first bad case of sciatica in 2017 and I had to be off work for a week. I was sick of it! I tried hard to commit tondiffernt programmes and approached – fitness, physio, anti inflammatories, diet that was minus food that cause inflammation, tumeric, glucosamine, chondratin, endurance, resistance training, cardio…the whole kit and caboodle!!
    And still…and still …I would have back pain and stiffness in the morning that made me feel like an old woman.

    I joined Best Body in Feb 2020 and I can honestly say for the first time I have a health management plan that works! Although I still get some pain and stiffness, albeit nowhere at level as before, I jump out of bed on the mornings I have reformer pilates. I know by the time I complete the class my soreness and stiffness will have eased out. Not to mention the lovely sense of calmness I get from the class. I love how as an exercise it makes it easier to work with your breathing and what a difference that makes!

    When Covid 19 struck my biggest anxiety was around losing my exercise regime and what had become my health management plan for my back and mind. I did join Best Body at Home and was surprised to find that mat pliates is
    probably tougher than reformer. I was stoked when the reformer classes started back up with Lize because for me it’s the mindful, rhythmic, almost tantric movements on the machine that I really like.

    I love pilates and appreciate what it has done for me so much to the point I’m considering doing a pilates instructor course, so I can get better at my own practice but also potentially pass on the gift by teaching pilates to others.

    My postnatal return was brutally interrupted and I can’t wait to restrengthen my core and pelvic floor using the reformer.

    I think attending a pilates fitness class after the pandemic will be great for my mental health but also give me the opportunity for some “me time” . This is baby number two for me (now 6 months), so getting into exercise with everything closed has taken a bit longer. I still have a good 10kg to lose and my body definitely didn’t bounce back like it did with my first baby.

    I would like to say a big Thankyou to all the instructors and of course yourself and your beautiful wife for all the hard work you put in, to make sure all your clients are staying fit and healthy.

    I joined Pregnancy Reformer Pilates about 3 months ago and Im 26weeks now.

    My goal was to keep my fitness up, tone my body and keep the healthy mind going.

    The Best Body has given me all of that plus more.

    I’m really looking forward coming back into the studio on the reformer again but saying that, I have thoroughly enjoying every single pregnancy mat Pilates so far.

    All your instructors are amazing and I can honestly say thanks to you guys I been enjoying my pregnancy so much more

    Big Thankyou Scott.

    Wow! What a generous offer! This would be amazing!
    Having had baby number two just as the pandemic started (she is now 12weeks old), its been very challenging to find the opportunity to exercise at all while also caring for a 2.5yr old!
    I found attending the studio throughout both pregnancies helped immensely with my back problems and I had been enrolled to attend the mums and Bub’s classes as soon as I was able to exercise following the birth, I was upset that I wasn’t able to get started when planned but I am looking forward to the classes resuming next month!
    My body has certainly not ‘bounced back’ by any means, quite the opposite in fact.. and I’m having to attend the chiro much more frequently over the last 3months, which I know is greatly contributed to by the loss of core strength. The opportunity to attend the studio 3 times a week would be incredible, not only from a physical point of view but certainly from a mental health point of view, to have time to do something for me for once would be wonderful!
    Thank you again for the opportunity and fingers crossed!

      Hi Team! Such a great offer! I signed up just before the closures came in and unfortunately I was not able to start. My main reason for signing up was to stay active and healthy through my pregnancy, I’ve tried following videos during this time but without having clear direction and accountability I am lacking enthusiasm. The membership would allow me to get back into the swing of excercise, build those important pelvic floor muscles, help with hip and back pain associated with my pregnancy and get those great excercise endorphins for my wellbeing. It’s been such an experience going through my first pregancy in such an unusual time but I can’t wait to get back into ‘normal’ life

    I have had a foot injury that has stopped me walking and exercising for around 5 years. Due to this I lost my job and became desperate to get well. I saw an advertisement for Best Body and due to the information it contained and the free appraisal I realised this could help me regain my strength. So I made the call and was appraised at Leederville by the wonderful Victoria. She described how I could exercise using the reformer without standing, she set out a plan and advised the cost of one on one. I managed to find the $1200 required and relished every class. I had a couple of classes left when all the shutdowns happened. I had made so much progress and my very weak leg was getting so much stronger, and my weight gain had stopped. Also Victoria gave me back my self respect.
    I’ve carried on some exercises during the shutdown but the strength has disappeared quite a bit.
    Thankfully my foot is almost healed and in a few weeks I should be able to start short walks for the first time in 5 years. I need though to strengthen my legs and correct my posture before that and without a job I can’t find the membership fees, so to win some classes would help enormously and get me back to being able to work and buy my own membership. I’m a 64 year old widow and my window for regaining mobility is ever decreasing for to age and I have to get better to be able to look after myself.

    Thirty years ago I was fit and active, then life’s everyday demands became my priorities. Work, raising children, volunteering and community work took centre stage. The terrifying result was weight gain, loss of strength and flexibility, and fatigue. In late 2019 I realised this could not go on. Something had to change with my physical health so I joined Best Body. The strength is returning in my back and arms, increased flexibility through my hips and spine, and a growing sense that I can make a sustained improvement for the years ahead. I’m grateful to the friend who recommended reformer Pilates and plan to pass on the news. It’s been brilliant!

    A 3 month membership and the ability to attend reformer Pilates 3 times/week would be a dream come true.
    After a few challenging few months (really a few years due to financial reasons) my back (and glutes) are in a bad shape. I hold stress in my lower back which manifests itself as constant stiffness and soreness, which combined with my hyper mobility and lack of any glute strength leaves me in a position here I can’t go kick the footy or run around after my kids. I would love to work on de-stressing and building core strength so that I can be the Mum who always says yes to jumping around, not having to find an excuse which hides my lack of fitness from the kids. I hope that the support and motivation which Best Body can provide will assist me in bounding out of isolation with energy.

    I like to be active to keep my mind and body in (fairly) optimum condition doing a mix of different exercise each week. So when restrictions were put in place I ensured i kept up the same amount activity doing alternative exercise, but it became apparent quite quickly that i need a mixed exercise regime and reformer Pilates is an essential part of that.I love the positive energy during classes and that it doesn’t matter how many reps you do, its that you are doing the best you can on the day and i am looking forward to reconnecting with that and getting back my core strength.

    The pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for me personally it gave me the ability to stop, reset and have the time to reflect on what needs to change.
    I am a working mum to 3 year old twins boys life is hectic and whilst the motherhood journey has been a great one It sometimes means that I am at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to well being. I took a chance and jumped out of my comfort zone last year and tried reformer Pilates and it not only helped me be a better mum, it improved my strength in both a physical and mental manner. A free membership would allow me to continue this journey of becoming a better me and giving me much needed me time which I have recently realised is the main ingredient in living your best life. Plus I’m getting old so will definitely help with all the aches pains and jiggles that come with mid life and beyond.

    There has never been a better time to win a Best Body Pilates Membership. If I win I will post to my social media network (Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram and LinkedIn) in support of Best Body Pilates each week promoting the professionalism of the trainers, the quality of the equipment, the convenient location of the classes, the story of the small business hard working owners. Pilates should be compulsory for anyone over 40, anyone who had done physical exercise or who has a physical job or conversely sits at a desk all day. It is the most beneficial, yet relaxing way to reward your body and enable it to continue to function well and pain free.

    The hardest thing about pushing into the 50s age group is the awareness of how much TLC your body requires to keep you just doing everyday stuff. I found Bestbody through friends and haven’t looked back. I just started before the closures and logged on weekly to join the amazing team stretching, pushing and challenging myself through the classes. I have noticed an amazing difference already in my spirit, agility and mental capacity.
    And you know the best bit is the name. Bestbody. Cause that’s what I’m getting.

    Hi Scott and wonderful team at BB Leederville.
    I was a member at Leederville Studio, attending 3-4 classes per week, but was forced to stop just prior to the Covid 19 pandemic, mainly due to an ongoing hip problem. The classes enabled me to keep my hip and surrounding muscles strong for much longer and to hold off my impending hip replacement surgery. My focus and intention in the classes was to better my recovery, after op, by doing the reformer classes. I had to stop my membership with me needing to close my businesses down as I am in the Beauty Industry.
    Now… my surgery is due this coming Thursday and initially I wasn’t going to enter as many many others are so worthy of wining one of these memberships, however, on waking this morning, I changed my mind to enter as I know how amazing attending BB classes will help me recover and rebuild my strength after my surgery. I am fit and healthy so very VERY keen to get back to being pain free and getting the best from my body. My experience with the team in Leederville, opened up a whole new world of great workouts, strengthening exercises, encouraging long lean body posture and great fun.
    Who ever wins this generous prize, will be very grateful and lucky. If I was to be lucky enough, it will enable me to get back to running my business, enjoying my life in a fit and pain free way.
    With thanks.
    Georgie

    Best Body Reformer Pilates will definitely help to gain confidence and self-esteem after my pregnancy. I was exercising myself with Best Body until nearly 42 weeks when I gave birth at the end of February.
    I was so excited to come back in 6 weeks but then this pandemic situation started.
    I just came from the GP and she said my tummy is distended and that it was not supposed to be like this. I am struggling with my body after birth and I need help with my self-esteem.

    I started my pilates journey with Best Body at the end of 2016 and haven’t looked back! I’ve always been active, with a gym membership, running, swimming, netball but my lower back has always been a problem.

    I started Pilates as I heard it does wonders for back pain and also started with my sister as a means to spend more time together.

    Fast forward 4 years and my back pain is non existent and I’m currently pregnant with my first child so I’ve now transitioned to the Pregnancy Studio. I feel the years I’ve done reformer Pilates has really prepared my body for pregnancy and I’ll continue to see the benefits hopefully post birth, as I’m really keen to recover and get back to pre-pregnancy fitness and body.

    Not sure what I’d do without Reformer Pilates! It keeps me healthy, sane and the community is amazing.

    In the strangest days we’ve ever seen I can see a shift in everyone that mental and physical health are now being given the priority we always should have given them. For me I see covid as the best chance ever to realign my life with those goals I’ve had on the back burner and been “too busy” to put the work in to achieve. Covid has caused me to have to have to tighten my budget to a point where a paid membership isn’t possible right now, so a 3 month membership would mean not having to give up on my progress or my health just because of my budget. It would be a life changing chance to commit to my goals and really kick some arse in terms of progress towards them. Specifically my current goals are as follows: 1. Weight: I am 42 years old and have been sitting at the same weight despite altering my diet and walking so I want to put in the hard work to see that shift. 2. Injury Management: I am recovering from a lower back injury and an injured coccyx from a past car accident and an abseiling injury. I want to get my spine moving with the right guidance to strengthen my core as support for my spine and strengthen my back so I can return to the things I love that keep me mentally healthy like bush walks, hikes, climbing adventures and enjoying my work as an Early childhood teacher and my home life as a mum to 4 teenagers! 3. Pain Management: when I was regularly attending pilates before covid I noticed a dramatic decrease in my daily pain levels and in some weeks I had no pain for a few days at a time. As soon as I had to stop this has all unravelled again and the stiffness I experience in my lower back makes it very hard to manage my days and get around. I have had to have others do things for me and I hate it!! I want my pain free back to come back! 4. Mental Health and well being: The difference pilates makes for my mental health really surprised me and while I have always walked as a mental health break for myself each day there’s also something about the sense of belonging and community you get from being able to be in class with likeminded people, have a giggle and and have some fun while all working towards our individual goals. I miss that and I think its the key to achieving my other goals listed above. So specifically a 3 month membership would mean the world to me. It would mean the chance to work on the things I had just really started on before covid and the chance to get a happy and fit person back!! Thanks for the holistic approach you take towards your business too. It really shines through in all of the staff and I’ve always felt they really care and they want to see us all achieve all aspects of our health and well being goals. Its not just about pilates they want to see us happy and successful in all aspects of our lives. It makes your business very special 🙂
