    After the birth of my second child I would be very grateful for 3 complimentary months for 3 reasons –
    Mental: a space and time allocated each weeks for me to have ‘me’ time which is otherwise impossible with a 3 yr old and 6 month old.
    Physical: to help improve my extremely weak pelvic floor. I also have a bladder prolapse and posterior prolapse which would benefit from increased pelvic floor strength
    Financially: being on maternity leave the incoming finances are reduced. I don’t return to work till October and until then money is tight.
    Thank you for considering me.

      I have arthritis and I want to see if reformer Pilates can decrease the pain I have been experiencing for the past few months. After a period of sitting all day at work my right knee blew up like a balloon from pseudo gout and it still hasn’t returned to normal. A month ago the left knee blew up but it returned to normal size however, now I experience a nagging pain on the internal side of the left leg below the knee. Strengthening the muscles around my knee joint are what I need to do, so I don’t have to rely on anti inflammatories when the pain level is extreme. I walk most days but climbing stairs is very painful at times.

    My young family and I relocated to WA in early April. Since the move, I haven’t been able to visit an osteopath which I had been doing back in NSW. The visits were primarily to help with hip alignment, which has been problematic since having a baby. I know that exercise could be an effective alternative to manual adjustments from an osteopath.
    I have also been out of my fitness routine since the move and am hoping to get back into it. I have done reformer pilates before and know the benefit.

    A Pilates membership win will help me get my body back into alignment with the discipline of 3x per week. I have scoliosis so need good core muscles to support my spine, I also have been studying a lot for my nursing degree while in isolation so I am ready to move this body big time and make some changes with the support of your squad!!!

    After being diagnosed with arthritis in my foot last year I have been looking for a new low impact way to exercise that would still let me Enjoy in a structured class environment I thrive in. Unfortunately after losing my job due to COVID, my search was put on hold and I have gained over 10kgs and become miserable in my own skin. I’m so keen to get involved, make new friends and get active again, whilst trying something new.

    Covid has been one of the most challenging times for me, almost as much as having twins. Trying to work part time, study, home school two 5 year olds and tidy up after a hubby working from home will send anyone up the all. Winning this membership will help me mentally gain back my inner strength and resilience.
    Reformer has given me the motivation to get up for 6am classes like no other exercise class has, leaving me feeling amazing all day.

    I started with Best Body in South Perth this time last year to allow me the opportunity to consistently attend Pilates , something for me , something that I’ve not actually prioritised before . Aside from my mental well being and time out from the constant pressures of my life I needed to strengthen some areas of my body that had been injured in a car accident many many years ago , compounded with two very heavy babies , to tone up and assist with my weight loss. I was hooked and looked forward to my two classes a week. Come July my husband was told he was being made redundant in the September – unexpected to say the least . My first thought was how could I keep going to Pilates ? I had the full support of my husband and even though he has just started working again after 7 months we made it work so I could still be committed . I couldn’t believe how addicted I was to coming so of course with South Perth closing back in March I was devastated not only for myself but also the instructors . Two of my friends had just joined too which was exciting because we were going to the same classes as it haves us a chance to catch up more regularly that our lives allowed. Enter Covid ………. however have been thrilled with Felicity’s group classes and I have even checked out the prices to increase my classes to 3 once the new normal is in play . Appreciate how hard everyone has/ is working for the patrons of Best Body South Perth and having had several men in our classes I am hoping I can eventually get my husband to come ( he has lost 55 kilos over the last 18 months and is 6 foot 8 so reformer would be great to help him tone up and strengthen his core ) Thanks

    I hahe done floor Pilates but never reformer! I used to have an amazing body…amd then baby, lockdown, working on my business all night on the side of my day job as a teacher.
    I sick at exercising on my own time and I 100% know that a timetabled class is what I need back in my life (I used to be a Les Mills class junkie). I don’t have a bad medical condition but my whole body is floppy and weak – a metaphorical shadow of its former glory.
    I’ve also *embarrasingly* not had spare cashflow for a membership yet and silly school shutdown / Lockdown has my hours cut lots…soooo to be able to kickstart my love of fitness again after coming to terms with that I actually do not enjoy the gym floor and weights…and standing there pretending like I know what to do. Reformer Pilates is my future best friend and lover and I will be it’s newest addict I just know it.
    Oh and also now I have some daytimes perfect for this timetable.
    Reading all the comments there’s so many amazing comments (oh side note: I also I fully hope and expect to make new Pilates friends…I hope?!) in the running for the 3 month membership that I secretly hope you give away more than one prize!! I’ll happily take second place
    Thanks ams good luck everyone!

    Since joining last September I absolutely feel like part of an amazing family, whose prime objective is to ensure all members achieve their goals, while feeling comfortable and safe at all times. My goals were and still are to achieve a strong body, ( particularly as my age group have to be very mindful of maintaining strong bones and body).. I was on my way to achieving my goals when covid struck. Not wanting to lose what I had already achieved , I enrolled in BB at home mat Pilates, which I have enjoyed but must admit not as comfortable for me as reformer, and I really miss the social aspect of the studio, which is vitally important for all of us.
    Having 3 months of extra support and guidance I feel I could achieve my goals quicker.
    1 strengthen my core
    2 lose a few kilos
    3 gain more muscle in my upper arms
    4 strengthen my back, lower back is weak ( from surgery)
    5 generally have a more toned body.
    Looking forward to returning to the studio
    Cheers and thank you.

      I joined as a foundation member. I have always been a gym member & did love doing floor Pilates. I had to have two gluteal tendon repairs & it’s been a journey to recovery, in saying that I have been doing 4 classes a week since you started up in South Perth & can’t sing your praises enough. I would love to win the 3 months for my husband as he’s just been in hospital with a slightly bulging disc . He’s been told to work on his CORE & do stretching. I try to help him but husbands & wives, do I need to say more! I’m sure he’d listen to a professional way more than me. I did take him to one class but he said it was painful!!! I believe 3months would really start him on his journey to love reformer as I do & then we could enjoy it together, regardless I can’t wait to get back into it, I’m suffering during Covi only been walking & I need my reformer.

        I am 63 years young and been battling bulging disc issues for a number of years. During lock down I have tried to achieve 10,000 steps every day to ensure I maintain some level of good health both mental and physical and no unwanted excessive kilos.
        I am ready willing and able to commence the next level I require to get my disc issues under control and continue to keep “young” and fit as possible and such A great start up to Pilates/Reformer sessions. Thankyou.

    I was lucky to join the south perth reformer community Best Body group as a foundation member when you initially opened the studio in February 2019. It very quickly became my haven from a stressful & busy job working in mental health & became something I looked forward to going to after work. There were so so many times in the early months when I thought I couldn’t do it because I really wasn’t very good but with the encouragement of the lovely instructors & other members I’ve come such a long way. since the studio has been closed I’ve lost so much of my flexibility and strength & am so wanting to get that back plus of course I miss the fantastic community

    3 reformer sessions per week and a support crew to cheer me on would be ideal moving forward through this pandemic in order to attain the best body and mindset to deal with any curveballs that may be thrown my way.

    Eat Sleep Pilates Repeat has literally been my mantra since my reformer pilates journey began in January 2020. I feel leaner and stronger physically and mentally and my lower back pain has diminished.

    The mat pilates has been very challenging for me, however, in the last few weeks I have seen the results, I have lost centimetres of weight around my waist and stomach. I feel calmer and my posture has improved.

    Thank you so much for working hard to keep us all fit and healthy through these trying times. You are all amazing.

    Whilst I am looking forward to going back to my normal Pilates routine and getting my body strength back to where it was, having a membership back will boost my mental health. Mental health is just as important as physical health and I think it gets overlooked sometimes, especially in the fitness industry where visual results are usually seen as a key to success. Over this whole Covid situation, Scott and Taryn have been open about exploring mental health and that’s something I’m looking forward to having support with over the next 3 months. A support system and a team of cheerleaders that really want the best for you is something I’m looking forward to having back face to face! Having those three months of extra support will mean I can focus on my mental health whilst easing back into normality. Those three months will mean I won’t have to be stressed financially or emotionally and won’t be so hard on myself coming back into things.

    Best body has already helped me achieve results in all areas of my body, including my brain! So I’m just keep to strength those areas even more 🙂

    Turning 50 years old and struggling with my weight and being body conscious all my life I feel Pilates could really help me overcome my lifelong fears and struggles.
    I have been an avid F45 member for many years but the pressure and injuries on my body were becoming a bit much. During Covid 19 I’ve done a lot of research on Reformer Pilates and think this would be amazing for my mind and my body. I believe health is such a wonderful investment in your life and mental well being. I would love to be considered for this 3 month membership. I just feel this could be the key that unlocks the door to me achieving the body and mind goals I’ve strived for my whole life.

    A Best Body Reformer Pilates membership would be both a blessing AND a real challenge as I don’t usually thrive in group settings. However after an injury last year, I had a taste and I got a lot out of it. I would really appreciate the opportunity to continue what I started, be the happiest healthiest best body I can be at 61! I have read many compelling submissions And I am putting myself forward as I want to thrive in all areas of my life -physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, relationally, creatively, financially and practically and this would contribute in every way.

    I have been doing Reformer Pilates for many years, and it has aided me through many minor aches and pains as well as major injuries resulting in surgery. Pre-COVID, I felt like I was the strongest I had been in years, my pain was less, and my flexibility was gradually improving. Best Body has helped me realise that my body can do anything, with effort and consistency, and that my injuries do not mean my best years are over.
    During this pandemic, I have made the best out of online pilates and stretching classes, and enjoyed daily walks, but I feel the familiar aches and pains coming back and I don’t bound out of bed as easily as I did a few months ago.
    Coming out of COVID, my employment circumstances are changing and I am entering a really uncertain time. The opportunity for a three month Reformer Pilates membership would allow me to prioritise my health (mind AND body) and kick-start the next phase of life for me.

    I have suffered with everyday pain with back problems for almost 40years after a couple of car accidents triggered a previously unknown congenital L5 Spondylolysthess. A fractured ankle 2 years ago plus shoulder remember air & neck surgeries have made me a bit of a physical train wreck so I used to regularly see an OT for dry needling & deep tissue massage & it was her who suggested pilates might help me (hence me signing up with your Studio). Not good for her business but I haven’t been back to her since haha. I am finding a great deal of improvement in my ‘movement’, my general health & pain management. The stronger I am getting in my core plus meeting the challenges set in class is helping strengthen my back & my quality of life has greatly improved too . It makes me feel I can only look forward to more pilates from here. I cannot really afford to do classes at all but at the same time I cant afford not to. Its my little luxury that is proving to be the best investment in my well being.

    I started with Best body as a foundation member as I was determined to get stronger, toned and feel fabulous at 40 after years of putting up with weak core muscles and lower back niggles from Scoliosis. Since the studio closed I found it impossible to commit the the best body at home with the craziness of 3 kids being home schooled, running of the house plus a new puppy. I cant wait to get back into the studio for the motivation to help me get back to how I was feeling and progressing prior to Covid, its just what my mind and body needs.

There’s never been any time for me to find an activity to call my own or time out from being a mother and nurse!

    I previously worked 3 days per week however am currently stood down due to the sports industry being hit hard with the oncoming of the coronavirus. I am one of the lucky ones being eligible to receive JobKeeper payments however my very good friend Kim Kelly was re-trenched after working with us as a fantastic receptionist for over 14 years. She is a single lady in her 50’s and is a great fan of reformer pilates. She was previously taking classes 3 times per week close to our work, unfortunately she can no longer spare the money to attend any now. I would like to nominate Kim to receive the free 3 month reformer pilates membership as she is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful person and very good friend.

    I joined BB in October last year with the primary goal of reducing pain in my hip, which has effected my sleep and general well being for around 6 years. By the time COVID19 came along I had reached the point where I was without pain most nights. BB Home motivated me to keep up that momentum. I have lost 10 kgs and I am without pain most of the time now . This has made an enormous difference to my quality of life. I do find it hard to fit the home classes but have made the most of the recorded classes at times that work well for me – so thanks heaps for that! What I am looking forward to most about returning to the studio is: being able to fit the classes in to my routine – going from work to home in the evening; the companionship and sense of belonging to a supportive fitness family, which you get by going along to regular classes; and continuing to maintain and build on my growing strength, stability and pain free life. Thanks again BB for adapting and being so responsive to our requests during the COVID19 time. I’m so looking forward to seeing you in the studio again.

    One of the things that has dissuaded me from group fitness classes in the past is the sense of having to fit into a certain ‘culture’. I love that with Best Body I get to be me. In totality. The classes are fun – the instructors are genuine and truly care. There is none of the superficial stuff that goes on in some gyms or group classes. This impacts my mental health in ways I cannot begin to explain. On occasion I have arrived at class a little stressed and always by the end of it I am calm, and relaxed and present and more of me. I love that you guys keep it real. And offer a true level of caring. The physical fitness that goes along with that is just a bonus. Thank you

    How you think a Best Body Reformer Pilates membership can help you over the next 3 months, coming out of this pandemic

    I am not just coming out of a covid19 pandemic, but coming out of 25 years of chronic illness, followed, finally, by a diagnosis, and then three years of brutal treatment. Despite now being in remission I have had to deal with the PTSD of what I had lived through. I had finally, in 2020, got around to enrolling in some exercise classes, including reformer Pilates,feeling at last brave enough to now reclaim my body and the power that comes with regular exercise, after many years of not being able to raise my head from the pillow. After only a few lessons, lockdown and closures happened.
    I had lost all my dreams, Income, Job, relationships, and business through my own illness, and now I lost the oppurtunity to access in person group exercise classes through covid19 – and it’s been a bit of a blow.
    For me a free 3 month membership would allow me to address two issues I am currently dealing with – how to get back into exercise – participating regularly and growing again to love it, and how to pay for it on a very tight post illness budget. Part of the reason I wanted to get back to exercise after such a long health battle was to reclaim some of the life I lost, the body I lost and the mindset, motivation and momentum I lost. The oppurtunity to get that back would mean a great deal to me, A three month reformer membership will be the cement I need to start piecing together the shattered remnants of my life post battle.

    I became a Best Body member in August 2019. We had just returned from a 4 week European holiday, and boy, had I gained a few kilos!

    But weight loss was not the main reason for me joining. I am a nurse in a busy Rehab hospital. I spent every other week and physio, with aches and pains that comes with the job of being a nurse. Being on your feet all shift, every shift, assisting patients to move, bending, up and down, the showering, nursing is a physically and mentally challenging job, that I love, but boy it takes its toll on your body.

    My physio, suggested I give Pilates a try, and whilst googling, and exploring Facebook, an ad for Best Body popped up. I sent an email, and received a call the next day, from one of their lovely staff.

    I’ve never been a gym junkie or an exercise freak, but reformer pilates I quickly got addicted to. My whole body felt great for it, the aches and pains slowly disappeared, my posture, which has always been bad, was improving, people commented on how good I was looking. My mind was clearer and fresher before starting a shift.

    The staff at best body are amazing, from the front desk staff to the trainers, always there to accommodate each and every member. I loved watching new members, gain better strength and body confidence.

    When we went into lock down, I was devastated, and slowly the aches and pains have returned and I am back at physio every other week once again, weight has also slowly decided to return to my body.

    I cannot wait to get back to classes, rebuild my body, and new and old friendships.

    I joined the South Perth Best Body as a foundation member when it opened last year in February. I was so excited and blown away, as finally what I had visualised and wished for actually presented itself. You see, I had set a vision board for myself the year before in 2018 to work on strengthening and giving my body more flexibility and tone. I was in a stressful job and visited my chiropractor regularly for adjustments. Sitting at a desk, working on the computer at work was not conducive to great posture and I regularly suffered from shoulder, back and arm pain. Last year with regular attendance I managed to shift a few things in my body, I became more flexible (could finally touch my toes when bending over), gained arm and leg strength. My visits to the Chiropractor became less and I had noticeable shifts with pain. I looked forward to the classes each week, the 45 minutes was my time to nourish my body and soul. I eventually resigned from my work this February 2020 and by the time I finished off my notice period we were all in lockdown. I left work because I had an epiphany that my health and well being meant more then anything in the world. The stress that my work gave me was affecting the people I love, my family! If I didn’t look after myself then I was not functional for myself or my family.
    The last two months at home with family have given me more insights and has reinforced the decisions I have made, nothing is more important then your well being and health. I have been looking forward to the South Perth branch opening up and I can’t wait to get back into the classes even though I may have to limit my attendance while I find another job or source of income. The three month free access would be greatly appreciated at this time, as it will allow me to continue working on strengthening my core and flexibility while giving me time to create something else for myself.
