    Thank you Tarryn, I have been suffering from back pain for a few years now and pilates in the past has helped me. If I win, it will really benefit me to continue for the next few months!!! Great work with the new studios…

    • Nikki Maslin

      Thank you Tarryn.I tried pilates many years ago and it was the only form of excercise I enjoyed and helped my mental well being.Fastforward to now Ive had twins and My L5 S1 disc is causing nerve damage down the right side of my body.I would love to strengthen my core etc to relieve these symptoms as I dont take medication for it.Thank you

      • Latara Ogle

        Hi Tarryn,

        I’m not about my best body right now I’m about my best mind and right now I need Jesus

        I’m a paramedic and mum of 3 with my youngest daughter having a seriously ill medical condition.

        I train weights 4-5 times a week but my mind and body are just not working together anymore. I’m going to the gym thinking about work, bills, the kids, what I have to do later and I’ve lost what was once my passion.

        It’s time for me to step out of my comfort zone and try and find that little bit of me time again aka as my sanity and hopefully my body will start to follow suite.

        I also broke my neck at the beginning of last year… soooo maybe it’s time to correct the muscle imbalances and not ignore the aches and pains ugh.


      • June Vanmaris

        Hi Tarryn, I have been working for many years and have had a health assessment and was noted that my muscles and flexibility was very weak. So you came along and mentioned Reformer Pilates. I need to exercise my body to have overall strength and flexibility. My body needs to carry me for many more years. Building muscles of the core will help support my back. Reformer Pilates won’t overwhelm me as a gym would. One word you use is nourishment which means to me an abundance of healthiness body and soul inside and out. Along this new journey of my life I would like to be confident , strong and vibrant and to enjoy each day.

      • jayne prior

        Hi Tarryn, I have not tried Pilates before but I have heard some very positive things about it, I would love to give it a try, I am turning 60 this year and I really want to look after my health and wellbeing. Thankyou

        • Marilyn wotherspoon

          I AM NEARLY 68. Nurs

    • Karen

      I’m 57 and have worked in retail for 30+years. Anyone who has worked in retail knows how hard it is on your body. I have never tried Pilates but gave been told it low impact highly good for your body and soul

      • Debby

        I’m suffering badly from the dreaded menopause and I’m gaining weight despite eating healthy and doing exercise.
        I’d love to do reformer Pilates to strengthen my core, but cost to do on a regular basis may make it difficult.
        I just want to be stronger as I age and this membership would help.
        Thank you so much for your generosity in offering these free memberships and good luck to whoever wins them

    • Leigh Blackwell

      Tarryn I am so excited about the arrival of your Pilates classes here in Mandurah 🙂 Pilates is such a universal way to achieve the perfect body tone, core strength, sense of visual achievements which in turns feeds personal self-esteem and improve one’s overall life experience – all in the company of other positive likeminded people – What more could you want?!!!

      • Dianne Paki

        Hi Tarryn, I am turning 60 in a few months and set myself a goal to be strong fit and healthy, mentally and physically, I have back pain which I find Pilates the best exercise for releaving the pain and strengthening my muscles to avoid pain I have done some Pilates in the past an find in very enjoyable, my favourite kind of exercise. Thanks Dianne

    • Vicki Ashford

      I have never done anything like this before but I would like to fix my whole body. A pilate teacher in Victoria (through a friend) told me that it would suit me as I can build up to being back to normal. and that in a nutshell is what I need whole body help. thank you 🙂

      • Karen Glatzel

        Hi Tarryn,
        I am so excited that Mandurah is about to get a Best Body studio. I used to do reformer pilates in Melbourne before I moved to Mandurah 4 years ago. I initially started to help heal bursitis in my shoulders, but soon realised how much the reformer helped not just my shoulder but my whole body. I became pain free, my muscles became toned; even had little definition in my abdomen ; I noticed I stood taller and my personal confidence increased. I was at my best. So when I came to Mandurah, I looked to find a studio but did not find one until now. A Best Body Mandurah membership would aid me to transform my body into a healthy, strong version of myself which will in turn help me to hopefully prolong deterioration of my kidney health. It will give me the tools I need to build muscle mass so I can effectively and healthily drop kilos. And most of all it will empower me to become happier within my own skin, free from stiffness and lack of luster. Bring on a healthier, stroner me!

    • Tiff

      I’m turning 50 this year and I want to spend the next decade getting strong and flexible .

    • Jasmine

      I am expecting my second child end of March and would love to take up exercise as soon as practicable…

    • Clare Seamer

      I am new to Reformer Pilates – the whole concept though has huge appeal. This opportunity to commence this journey learning the correct technique also appeals. The benefits of not only strength and toning but correct breathing and time out for myself after busy work hours appeals. It’s time!

      • Nikki

        Hi Tarryn

        My body hurts!!! My hips are tight, my lower back aches 24/7, my body is weak and I need a workout system that I LOVE and one in which I will FEEL results. I’m honestly not bothered about SEEING results – I need to feel them. I’ve done Pilates on and off over the years but never reformer. I’d love to have a red hot crack at it.

    • Sandra Lloyd

      I work FIFO at the moment but have done a lot of pilates in the past. I find it a challenge to keep my back strong & would welcome the chance to go to a decent pilates studio again, as I have not been able to find one down here in Mandurah.

    • Tracie Cross

      Hi Tarryn…A Pilates membership would help me to be stronger, flexible, toned and free from years of chronic pain, but even if I dont win I am looking forward to attending classes with you all.
      Thank you 🙂

    • Nikki Edge

      Hi Tarryn,

      I have recently given birth to a beautiful boy but obviously it has changed my whole life (in the best way) but also my body.

      As Mum’s we put the needs of our family before our own, so it would mean the world to me to be able to win something for myself. To take care of me so that I can take better care of my family.

      Mandurah has really needed a Pilates studio, it’s very exciting to see that we now have one available and in such a prime location.

      Whether I win or not, I’m excited to be a part of the Bestbody Community.

  2. Kerrie Robinson

    Hi Tarryn I am keen to try Pilates and would be a beginner. I am in my fifties, working a sedentary job and need to regain my strength, flexibility and CONFIDENCE. I am also keen to make new friends and work on my physical and mental wellness. This could be the ideal pathway.

      • Kim Talbot

        Hi Tarryn, I have lost a lot of weight. I am hoping to strengthen my core, arms and legs. I would be a beginner having never tried Pilates I suffer from fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I am so glad your coming to Mandurah

    • Susanna Fish

      Hello Tarryn
      Clearly I was too enthusiastic as I sent submit before I’d actually written comment
      I’ve had 7 children , youngest 12, eldest 33,Im having my 55th birthday this year
      You guessed it , I’ve rarely made time for actual exercise!
      Id be excited to win as would definitely motivate me & yes I do have various health issues that I’m thinking would benefit from this form of ‘torture ‘
      Cheers Susanna

      • Renee

        Hi Tarryn

        I have always wanted to try Pilates but living and teaching in the remote Kimberley region made it quite difficult! I love long distance endurance events and have struggled on and off over the years with overuse injuries and lack of flexibility. Since having my son 2 years ago, I have had diastasis recti which has obviously impacted my core strength and overall ability to exercise to the same level prior to pregnancy. Currently pregnant with our second, i would thoroughly embrace the opportunity to experience Pilates and build my strength and flexibility.
        Thanks for reading 🙂

    • Sharon Ellem

      Hi Taryn
      I’m a nurse and have 3 young boys. I have heard of pilates and its benefits with 3 cesarean section deliveries I have zero core strength and I understand the benefits of core strength. I need to put me first to be the best parent I can be. I want to commit to a better me for my kids and my professional future. I’ve started eating more mindfully now I need exercise with like minded people to go the rest of the way.

  3. Cheryl Ballard

    I have never done Pilates before. I have had ‘sleeve’ surgery and lost 40kgs. While the weight loss is awesome I have lost a great deal of muscle strength. I have read that Pilates is the best way to rebuild lost muscle strength and tone. I need support and guidance as a newbie

  4. Kylie Feast

    I sustained an injury a little while ago and the only thing that helped me was my Pilates DVD. I’m completely healed now but I’m not 100% sure on technique and really feel like I need some guidance from an expert. I’m late 30’s but feel late 50’s haha! I really need some movement and strength in my body that only Pilates can provide.

  5. Juanita Frost

    Thank you! I use to do Pilates years ago after my second son which helped me tone and core strength, but stopped and since gained lots of weight but due to an injury with my heel of my foot I can’t lots of waking or gym exercises. I am also a horse rider and this would really help my riding with my core strength. I would love the chance to win as it will help my lifestyle so much.
    Thank you

  6. Zoe Lee

    Pilates in my life has been like that on and off ex boyfriend, when it’s on and I’m committed life is amazing, I feel great , I glow, feel taller, confident and down right sexy! But when life throws in a challenge ( like moving interstate) and the commitment and love gets diverted to something else I feel the hole that it leaves! I always find my way back.
    I first started Pilates after my children were born after suffering from chronic hip pain that never left. I currently have a Pilates bed in my garage which I intended on using everyday I know famous last words. In reality I need the class experience to keep motivated.

  7. Claire

    Hi Tarryn.

    I’ve been suffering from endometriosis for years and after my last surgery my specialist told me that my only feel option from now would be to have a hysterectomy. At 29 I really have been trying to expolore other options to buy some time. I’ve changed my lifestyle and increased my exercise and training when possible. I’ve wanted to start Pilates for so long but I’ve never been able to due to pain etc now I am in a better place physically and mentally I feel Pilates at BestBody will finally help me in my journey to better help naturally. Thank you for this opportunity x

    • Charlize

      Hi Tarryn,

      A Best body reformer Pilates membership would change my life.
      I’ve been suffering with back problems for the last 2 years after an injury and even had to give up work last year due to the pain.
      I have recently seen a pain management specialist who has recommended reformer Pilates for my back but due to not working I can’t really afford to go to classes, I am hoping If I win this membership I would be able to strengthen myself enough to be able to get back to work and to then continue the Pilates to keep myself toned and strong

    • Bobbi

      I have a number of reasons that I want to get back into pilates.

      The most important reason is that I want to start a family later this year so I’d really love to get in shape and strengthen my core. I really think getting fitter with pilates will improve my chances of falling pregnant.

      I’ve had back problems for most of my life and my OT recommended strengthening my core before having children to help me throughout pregnancy.

      I’m currently starting my own marketing business and its busy and stressful and so I’d love some time to focus on myself and my health and find some balance in my life.

      I used to do hot yoga in Mandurah and I really loved it but if I’m honest the customer service was pretty average so I’m really looking for something to replace that in my life.

      I’m hoping that the timetable is friendly for people that work, because there are other places in Mandurah that do reformer pilates but only during the day.

      So far all the communications from your business look really good and I think you’re onto a winner. Good luck with everything

  8. Danielle Trebley

    Hi Tarryn thank you for the chance to win this great prize. Reading your last blog was like reading about myself. It’s time for me to focus on me as i’ve been feeling very down for awhile now and need something to make my mind and body feel strong again. I have tried reformer pilates once while on holidays and thought this is something i could do. I’m not someone who likes a busy gym and i’m hoping this is something that would suit me to help strenghthen my core as i do have lower back problems. I’m looking forward to you opening and good luck

  9. Toni Gordon

    I’ve suffered with arthritis my whole adult life. I can never get into a H.I type work out without fear of injury and know Pilates is supposed to be amazing for my condition. I think it would help with my moods, confidence and overall well being! I’m so excited for this studio to start In MANDURAH!

  10. Cindy Woolcott

    I had twins 3 years ago, and then while I was working with a women’s physio to get my abdominal separation to close, I fell pregnant again with bub #3, whom I had 22 months after having the twins. Unfortunately I have been so busy with the kids that I never got back in to trying to fix my abdominal separation after bub #3, who is now 19 months old. I would love to do something that can not only help fix my abdominal separation, but also give me the opportunity to have some ‘me-time’ – as I very rarely do anything for myself since having the kids – and reformer pilates seems to be the perfect place to start!

  11. Kelli Hones

    Hi Tarryn, Thanks for the opportunity to win. Im just not happy with my body shape, Im a shorty and look more like a potato with stumps for legs. I have trouble with my feet and legs. I just really would like to be more toned. Being able to be more flexible again. Also look fit instead of a lump of flubber.

  12. Natika Dorrius

    Hi Tarryn,
    What an amazing prize you are giving away! I find reformer Pilates the best for my body, no other excerise has been able to keep my back problems at bay. I feel reformer Pilates is key to keeping my muscles in great condition and allowing me to feel amazing! I haven’t been able to do many classes as of late and winning this prize will all low me to get back into the swing of keeping it going. I can’t wait for your new studio to open. Thank you so very much!! x

  13. Marie TeAu

    Hi Tarryn, I have ben carrying a sever foot injury for 6 years now which obviously affects other parts of my body such as my strength and flexibility in my back, feet and legs. I am coming up 63 in a few months and am very concerned about keeping my fitness level at a healthy level, especially as somewhere in the next 6 months I will be having a significant operation which hopefully will fix my issues for good, but I will need to be fit and healthy to get over. My feet and legs are generally very swollen by the end of the day, as despite getting up and walking etc my job is sedentary also, which doesn’t help. I have never tried pilates, but I feel it could be a big help it getting me to healthy level for the challenges ahead.

    • Sonia Davies

      Unsure where to start. I really need this membership. I have followed you for months. This is my story. I found out at the beginning of December that my husband if 4 years and 6 in all has been a secret gambler. Totally gobsmacked. I have always tried to maintain my fitness. I am 55 and by no means overweight but since Dec I was left with no choice but to cancel my gym membership along with other things I enjoyed. I have always been a saver of the small wage I get. But unforseen circumstances I had to use everything I had to put us straight. I have lost a lot of weight since and muscle. I am not a charity case by no means but winning this will give me time to save again and do the things I love again. I have always loved Pilates but I know this is the better way to go. I have tried it in the past and loved it. I have lost my confidence and self esteem and need to find myself again. I need to focus on my core as I suffer with lower back pain due to the work I do. I would love to win this offer to get me back on track and stop destroying myself as I can’t change the past.

  14. Yvonne Archer

    Hi Tarryn ,
    I had a back surgery back in 2011 at 51 and for my rehab I did reformer Pilates , I had to go to west Perth for that as there wasn’t much in Mandurah ,
    I am 58 now and still have a lack of flexibility in the nerve in my left leg that was damaged , I had a foot drop at the time but that did improve with the pilates,I also had a home Pilates machine that was no comparison to the other ones , which meant I stopped using it!I got myself in a rut and stopped excersing for about 5 years and gained weight of course.
    I have lost 11 kg due to a gastric sleeve and still losing and would love to get some tone and strength and flexibility back into this old bod lol
    Thanks for opening this venue

  15. Cat Moore

    Hi Tarryn,
    Thankyou so much for the opportunity to be apart of the Mandurah classes.
    I am a beginner, but am looking forward to being apart of a like minded group.
    Specifically I am chasing a toned body shape, and to basically just feel amazing. I work quite long hours, so I feel this will help me as a whole.

  16. Annette

    Hi Tarryn, I have suffered with back pain for years now, and am very aware that strengthening my core will go along way to alleviating the pain and making life more enjoyable. To have the privilege of being a member of Best Bodies Reformer Pilates would be fantastic, knowing that I have the right training and support would be so beneficial for my general health and well-being. It will be lovely to be able to sit on the floor with my grandkids while they are playing and know that I can get back up without too much effort!

  17. Asher

    Hello, I recently started mat pilates in november last year and the studio i was attending closed in feb so I am on the lookout for a new premises. Since it’s been closed I have noticed the difference in my health with poor posture, weaker core, lower back pain and the way I feel. I have always wanted to try reformer and did a class last week which I fell in love with. Being a remedial massage therapist I know how important great posture and having adequate strength to perform my daily routine is.I believe reformer pilates can help me become the best person I can be both mentally and physically.

  18. Lauren

    Hi tarryn,

    What a beautiful gift, Winning a membership would mean the world to me. As a young teenager I often took yoga and Pilates with my mum and found that it became a haven for me as well as a wonderful bonding experience. She since has passed away and for the last few years I’ve suffered from anxiety and often depression as the result of this, toxic relationships, a high work load and often putting the needs of others before my own. It has unfortunately left me with a lack of self confidence and being burnt out on a day to day basis. I feel like I’ve lost the person I am and have been stuck in a hole I can’t dig myself out of. I’m trying to build myself back to where I once was, unfortunately due to limited finances I’ve not been able to take these first few steps but having this opportunity would be the most incredible gift to be able to do something positive for myself, and to be able to give my body strength so I can look in the mirror, feel accomplished, powerful and be happy with what I see.

    Thank you for the opportunity x

  19. Lois mcmorran

    Hi Tarryn
    I am in my fifties and looking to do something different.
    I find gyms intimidating as I don’t know what to do☹️
    Walking my neighbourhood is getting boring and not very social.
    So I would love to meet new people and be more socially as well as improve this body of mine that has served me so well…….time to give back to me. ❤️

  20. Cassie Armstrong-Chapple

    I would be new to Pilates and since having my little girl I have suffered lower back pain and have heard Pilates is great for this, I would also like to improve my core strength, flexibility and get back to my pre baby body.

  21. Kelly Dalgleish

    We give so much of ourselves as mothers, lovers, friends and the list goes on…we often forget to give a little of that something back to ourselves, of this I am certainly guilty as charged! Since having my two beautiful daughters, whom I’d not trade for anything, I’ve suffered with such a sore back, reduced flexibility and I lost a lot of my mojo in general. We let our lives get so god damn hectic but it’s time, time to give back to me! That’s right, me myself and I ☺️ Winning this would be the greatest kickstart to freedom from the old achy stiff back and a greater feeling of well being both physically AND mentally. Oh and those we love will benefit from our Best Body achievements too, rewarded with a mother and lover full of confidence, energy and zest for living her best life in her BEST BODY!!

  22. Leanne Langestraat

    Hi Tarryn,
    I have done pilates in the past, but after having kids, life has got so busy with them and their activities that I have put myself on hold. Now they are older I want to get back into something for me and pilates is something I want to get back into. I have a prolapse and am hoping that pilates will allow me to help me from having to go down the operation route in the future. Always been interested in how pilates helps with strengthening our muscles without the need to be hard on our bodies. Would be great to meet new people and start something fun and exciting! 🙂

    • Kas

      Hi .
      I actually heard about this quite some time ago and enquired as to whether i could participate being pregnant and all. I would love to win this amazing prize. I am currently 42 yo and 27wks pregnant. I feel my flexibility has declined and i have put on 14 kgs so far..argh not good. Normally i am active and keen to try different forms of exercise and well being techniques. I would definately use this prize. I would hope it would help with my mental and physical well being. My willingness to be active again and be a healthy “maternal age mother” as i am often called. Good luck everyone but secretly i do hope i am a prize winner

  23. Lyn Davis

    Hellooo Tarryn,

    I would love to win this membership! I have been going to gym for several years but now I have turned 58 I am finding it quite difficult, however I really want to keep my body in good condition as I believe a strong body helps to also give you a strong mind. I believe pilates will benefit both of these. I have found as I get more mature that even a few weeks away from strength training weakens my overall body and particularly balance.

  24. Alannah McPherson

    Hey Tarryn,

    As a student nurse in her final year of study pilates would do me a world of good. Stress quite often overwhelms me and it would be nice to have an activity that keeps me healthy mind body and I hope soul. Sport previously helped but a number of sporting injuries have seen me unable to return and I believe this could be the solution I’ve been looking for

  25. Laurel Engelsman

    Hi Tarryn,

    By having the membership, it would allow me to learn how to use my pilates machine (that my husband bought for me on Gumtree with no instructions or dvds).
    I feel/hope that I will achieve a better range of movement, increase my fitness level, which is currently at about 1 out of 10 and to hopefully loose some of my very unwanted extra kilos.

    Also looking forward to meeting lots of new people who want to feel good.

  26. Haani

    Reformer Pilates is a game changer and is something I have done on and off for years! However for the past few years I have let my exercise slide and work takeover, which is often high stress and long days. To make matters worse it is a sedentary role and the change in my posture, core strength and flexibility is noticeable. I am keen to focus on me again this year and this would be the perfect kick starter. I am so pleased that you are opening up in Mandurah as this has been a big gap in our health and fitness market for a few years now!

  27. Michelle Durtanovich

    Hi Tarryn
    Well… I run my own initial cleaning business, very physical work. I’m getting older don’t want to look like an old hag just yet and have a herniated disc injury from a year ago. I think pilates will help my pain as the physical work I do aggravates it every day and I hate my arms and would like nicer ones!

    Thanks for the opportunity

  28. Sasha D

    Hi Tarryn,
    As a Mum and a Youth Counsellor I am very effective at giving back and supporting others however I am extremely poor at giving back to myself and taking care of my needs. I have been suffering on and off with back pain and a bulging disc for a number of years now. I would love to have the opportunity to give Pilates a go and do something for myself and well-being.
    Thank you

  29. Dawn

    I am starting out on my healthy and happy journey to improve my well being. I have now started on my healthy eating habits just need to start up and become more flexible and to tone up my belly region and my nanna arms. Wow what a wonderful 2019 when I achieve this. Thank you

  30. Kasey Zwanenburg

    Hi Tarryn, Thank you for this opportunity. I’m in my early forties, slowly getting back into better shape, but work a full time sedentary job and find it hard to stay motivated. I have loved Pilates in the past and the reformer always to offer a while new level to help me tone, gain flexibility and strength. I’m looking to really improve my core strength, balance, flexibility and general well-being. I suffer with anxiety and depression on and off, depending on how well I’m doing at any given time, so I’m looking for something a little less intensive and invasive as all of the gyms, but something to help me keep the endorphins flowing. I seem to have lost my fitness, and health and wellbeing mojo and need something to give me the kickstart and boost that I need.

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Tarryn

      Thank you for giving people the opportunity to win such an amazing prize, I’m so very grateful and am so looking forward to the Mandurah studio opening soon!

      I have struggled with a hip condition since I was little and after having surgery am still having problems on a daily basis. I have tried many different things, but not Pilates, so after researching I’ve decided that I’m going to give it a go as the muscles surrounding my hips are very weak and I’ve read that Pilates is perfect for strengthening, especially around this area and the core.

      I have danced for many years until just recently, and I love class environments and being pushed to constantly make improvements and work hard to see results.

      I am currently studying Physiotherapy at university and am always on the look out for different activities that will help keep my body and mind active and provide a release and break from spending many hours studying.
      As a Physio student, I’m also interested in learning more about Pilates as I see it as being a benefit to myself in my future career and the opportunities it could provide me with.

      This membership would help a lot with keeping my whole body healthy as well as help me financially, as being a student it’s extremely hard to find work that provides suitable hours around time needed both at university and time spent studying at home.

      Thank you again for the opportunity!

  31. Collette Gardiner

    Hi Tarryn, I’m recovering from two level back surgery and have just been given the go ahead from my surgeon to start light exercise. During my recovery I put on some weight which I am happy to say I have just about managed to lose. This has left me with some loose, sagging skin which added to a weak back isn’t ideal. I have never tried Pilates but I have read some wonderful reviews about how it can strengthen your core and your back while healing your head!!! It’s a win win I’d say. Before my surgery I was a runner but I’m realistic this won’t continue so I need so form of exercise that will push me just as hard and give me the peace of mind I need.
    Best of luck in your new venture.

  32. Janet Zadow

    I’ve always loved to exercise but over the past 18 months I just haven’t been making the time. As a result I’m intoned and unfit, I’ve always wanted to join a Pilates group in Mandurah and have even gone to the trouble of looking them up, but never committed. After my first child I purchase a three part video series of Pilates by Lynne Robinson. Lynne’s videos taught me alot and I enjoyed practicing for a couple of years. I found Pilates gave me amazing core strength, toned my body and most importantly made me feel amazing. My daughter is now 16 and I don’t own a video player, but I would love to join Best Body and build a new stronger me.

  33. Diane Pennycott

    Hi Tarryn, I am so excited about your studio opening! I am turning 60 this year and have finally started to lose the extra weight I have been carrying for the last decade. I love my Zumba but I know I need to do something else to achieve a higher level of fitness and a better outlook for a healthy future. I am on blood pressure medication, and would love to be able to lower the dose. My husband and I will celebrate 30 years of wedded bliss in August, and it would be amazing to be feeling fitter, slimmer and more like my younger self!

  34. Kylie Czaplinski

    Hello Tarryn, Your passion and enthusiasm for a better body, mind and soul has been an inspiration and motivation for me to want to know more and try this out. I would be so happy to win a membership to your new place in mandurah and be much more motivated to give this opportunity a chance to take off rather than make excuses about not being able to afford it.
    I am keen to not only loose some weight but to tone up and strengthen my core and muscles as they are so important to have, in our older age, im only 43 but im feeling much older physically, than i should be. Ive never done pilates before and am keen to try this out.
    Well done on your willingness and passion to help people feel good and love themselves both inside and out.

  35. Hazel Freestone

    hi i used to do Zumba and loved it, but my body can’t handle the heavy impact and twisting anymore. So sadly I have given it up, and let myself go a bit. I need something that is less demanding on my body , I think Pilates is the answer to strengthen , tone and give me a class to look forward too. I suffer with lower back pain and my massage lady suggested Pilates without a doubt. Thank you for giving me the chance to take the next step.

  36. Jessica

    I’m just about to have my second baby – my first is only 15 months old, so my body hasn’t had much time to recover between the two. I have always been interest in Pilates and think it will help me get my body back into pre-baby shape. It would also be great to have some ‘me’ time a few times a week to focus on myself while having the two kids under 15 months.

    • Nikki

      I am a 29yo mum of two. I was steadily involved in fitness through my life. When finally falling pregnant with my second son after a considerable number of fertility treatments I come down considerable and peristant pain that continued for the duration of My pregnancy without any diagnosis or pain medication. Keeping my buns in until 37 was no walk in the park with the inability to move- the last month I even spent showering on my hands and knees in agony. The day after my c section I was given an MRI which showed a very serious prolapse in a lower disc. Pain continued to amplify daily and i was given nine days to recover from my c section before going in for spinal surgery as I was at high risk on losing my bladder, bowel and leg function. Needless to say 17months on I’m pertrified to return to the higher impact activities I used to love! But wish I could not only have faith that my body can do it but also better my self confidence. I’ve researched and found that Pilates would be the best option to better my body and get me back on track to normal exercise and ultimately enabling me to have more children without the same problems.

  37. Natali andrews

    I’m a 33 year old hairdresser an have noticed my posture is getting worse an back pain due to standing all day an bending over backwashes, I’ve also started to gain weight around my mid drift an really wanting to genuinely change my posture, tone up, an lead a more healthy lifestyle

  38. Tara

    I have endometriosis so physical excersise can be difficult for me and I would like to try Pilates I need to become a better me for not just myself but most importantly my children who I want to know anything is achieveable as long as you put some effort in

  39. Linda

    Hi Tarryn
    My wellbeing is very important to me and as I age I know I need to adjust my fitness to suit if I want to keep my fitness level, feel good about myself and in clothes and ultimately age well. I love strength exercise and a well toned body, but since hitting 52/53 whats worked in the past doesnt now despite eating, sleeping well and exercising daily. I want to walk everyday, run for just 1/2 hr 2 times a week and do pilates around that so I get a low impact full body work out thats greart for the mind, body and soul as I age. Fingers crossed! Thankyou for the opportunity to try my luck!☺

  40. Georgie Penman

    Hi Tarryn, after a couple of years of bad health I would love if you could help me get my fitness levels back up and generally make my body strong again. I have anklyosing spondylitis in my lower back which limits me to the types of exercise I can do. Therefore my core muscles are weak. The past couple of years I have also developed arthritis in my wrist and knee. At one point last year I was unable to walk. Luckily I can now walk but that’s about as much as I can do. My knee is very weak and I’m scared to try any form of exercise in my own incase I damage it further. It is very restricting though and stops me from having fun with my 3 kids like I used to. It has really taken its toll on my emotional health to and I just want to get back to normal. I would love if you could help me. Thanks Georgie

  41. Amanda Harrington

    Strength and flexibility, strength and flexibility, strength and flexibility! I’ve noticed myself saying lately when getting up off the floor, “gosh I’m getting old”. Nah-ah. I’m not yet 40 and that is a terrible excuse why I am stiff and sore. Moving my body, getting strong and flexible is the answer. Reformer Pilates is the answer!

  42. Rhian Lewis

    Hi Tarryn, winning this prize would help me recover some strength and flexibility in a gentle manner as my body has been through a lot over the past few years. Having had a pretty crappy few years due to first of all falling in the gym and needing a complete knee reconstruction, then a few months later being diagnosed with breast cancer- mastectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. I’m finally feeling mentally ready to start exercising again and having recently started Pilates I feel it would be a great option for me. Thanks, Rhian

  43. Heather Small

    Hey Tarryn. I moved to Mandurah a few years ago when I met my new man on E Harmony following an emotional divorce. I was from Bunbury and was doing reformer Pilates there to assist with back pain sustained as a gymnast in my youth and a car accident some 40 years ago. It was amazing how strengthening my core assisted with my pain control. I’ve been missing Pilates ever since I moved here and was delighted when your post popped up on Facebook. Reformers work for me because it’s a bit tricky getting up and down off the floor these days. 6 months ago I took control of my body back and lost 17 kilos of weight and I’m looking like a new woman. With my love life and weight taken care of, all that’s left is to take care of my inside and help with my pain management to make my transformation complete. Knowing the excellent results Pilates can have, I’m really looking forward to meeting you and getting to work on sorting my body and back and hip pain out. Thanks for a crack at this amazing opportunity. Cheers Heather

  44. Bell

    Hi Tarryn!
    I seriously injured my neck about 15 years ago and found I was not only in pain, but also loosing a significant amount of feeling down my left side. It was impossible to do many types of exercise; however my physio started me on a reformer and I truly think it saved me.
    I’ve not returned to Pilates for 10 odd years and now after having my daughter I’m really suffering the effects of the old injuries, lacking strength in new areas and needing help to get my fitness, strength and mojo back!.

  45. Christine Thorne

    Congratulations on the commitment open such a service in Mandurah. As a massage therapist I need to keep my body strong. I have seen excellent results from Pilates Reformer workouts and would dearly love a 6 month membership. Body n Soul Remedial Massage

  47. Wendy Miles

    I use to be a gym junkie and do 6 to 8 classes a week two back to back. Then my mum passed away amd couldn’t get back into it. A couple of years later i got cancer and the chemo and treatment has effected my body. All clear for 8 years but the chemo had taken its toll on my body, i suffer with bad back,neck and sorejoints and body. Now menopause has hit big time. I really want help to get back into shape and fitness but hesitant to go full on into gyms again. I would love to win the pilates membership to get fit and get my mojo back.

  48. Wendy Miles

    After having beat cancer and now thrown into menopause i need to get back into shape without harsh gym weight workouts which will agravate my back and neck. I need to get my mojo back.

  49. Narelle Litchfield

    Hi Tarryn!
    I have excitedly been following your page since I saw a notice about coming to Mandurah a looong time ago.
    I have a very demanding job as a funeral director and after giving to everyone else I think it’s time to look after me! I had a boating mishap 2 years ago and just can’t get my hip in a happy place. I need to do something about getting in shape too… for me it’s not all about looks, I feel uncomfortable and it’s time. Past time if I’m being really honest!
    Even if I don’t win a membership I wish you all the best with your new venture.

  50. Tiffany Hayes

    Hi Tarryn, I’m trying to find some form of exercise that will help me to become strong, fit and flexible. According to my physio, I have “diabolical” knees. He is 100% sure I will need a knee replacement in my 60’s (I am 48 this year) and I am 100% determined to prove him wrong. I am a strong believer that the body can heal itself with the right mind set and exercise. This program would help me to become strong in mind and body without the added stress on my knees. I feel that if my body is strong and my core is strong then it will have a flow on affect for the rest of my body. I am a vet nurse and spend so much time on my feet and always caring for and putting out for others whether it be our beautiful patients or their owners, it would be so nice to give myself something back. I would love to feel strong and healthy and I know this would help me to get there.

    • Malikah

      Congrats Tiffany!!!

      You deserved it. Looking forward in meeting you and going through the journey of our sessions together.

    Hi Tarryn
    I am currently struggling to lose weight even though I am going to the gym doing workouts 5 times a week. I have done reformer Pilates before and found it very helpful with my back pain and flexibility. It would be great to get back into it and possibly recharge my body and get it moving.
    All the very best with your new venture.

  52. Alica Castle

    Hi Tarryn
    I’m really excited that you have taken the steps to open what I’m sure will be an amazing facility for the Mandurah community!

    I was diagnosed with Ross River Virus 2 and a half years ago and since then have gone from being a happy healthy active woman to basically having trouble doing everyday tasks from the excruciating joint pain and fatigue from this illness. The less I move, the more my joints seize up. This will, in time, lead to early onset rheumatoid arthritis and being only 41 this scares the life out of me. But I am unable to do traditional gym exercises as it puts stress on my joints and associated muscles so it’s a bit of a catch 22 for me at the moment

    I have been recommended to try reformer Pilates and have read up on the benefits, specifically reduced stiffness, improved flexibility, posture and core strength, increased vitality and motivation to promote a healthier version of me!

    Now is the time to make myself a priority! Thank you for considering me to win the reformer Pilates membership, it definitely won’t be wasted on me! Best wishes with the opening of the Mandurah studio

  53. Jennifer Gerhardt

    Hello sunshine. I’m turning 48 next Tuesday and think reformer Pilates should be my next step in reinventing myself. I was diagnosed with AS (Ankylosing Spondylitis) about 6 years ago. Over the years my weight climbed as my mobility grew more and more limited. Even walking a few metres some days was beyond excruciating. As I became almost house bound from the pain, my depression grew and I isolated myself from the outside world. I felt like no one truely understand the pain, frustration and loss as I “mourned” the person I use to be. I knew something had to change before I ended up bed bound and only an empty shell of who I was. I felt like I’d failed my husband, kids and myself. The guilt I feel about my boys and how different their upbringings were was eating me alive. My older son had a fairly healthy mum who could play with him, roll around the floor, lots of energy and was adventurous. My youngest son has only known a mum who has struggled and suffered from severe pain and depression. He never had a mum who could run on the beach or play chasey at the park. This mum was sad, withdrawn and lost. I knew something had to change. Last February I had bariatric surgery (followed by 2 more emergency surgeries) and have slowly lost 40kgs since. I started to feel like my old self again. As I can’t do high impact exercise it has been a hard road with exercise. I struggle with all or nothing. Going from no exercise to gun ho,mental, no stopping until I’ve hurt myself type of exercise. I have no blalance. Then when injured sinking back into my old ways. One thing I have learnt finally is that I’m never going to be the old me ever again. Now it’s onto discovering a new me. A fitter, healthier and stronger me. A positive and happier me. It’s not about trying to return to what I was but trying to have the courage to keep pushing myself while also learning how to treat myself with kindness and love. Reformer Pilates will help with strengthening my body and core whilst also showing me a way to lengthen and stretch my muscles and quiet my mind. A balance of mind, body and soul. Thanks Tarryn!

    • Nikki

      This is inspiring! Keep it up xo

  54. Melanie Bennett

    I would love to try Best Body Reformer Pilates as I’ve been struggling to regain my strength, especially core strength, due to postpartum complications. My members at my gym would also benefit from knowledge I learn through Reformer Pilates and hopefully even come along to compliment their current training.

  55. Coralie Barlow

    I was born 10th of March 1972 I’m turning 47 in 9 days!! I’ve lost over 40 kilos in the past 3 years but am struggling with my muffin top.. I’m wearing a size 10 which I haven’t done for more than 25 years I am training to single ski and am struggling to tone and my flexibility. It was suggested to start Pilates and then I came across this competition I want to be fitter than I was in my teens

  56. Jen

    Hi Tarryn, thanks for this great opportunity to possibly win a reformer membership and I must say I do not envy you the task of choosing the winners, there are some amazing stories from some incredible women already listed. As for me…I’ve always loved moving and being active but I’m finding as I get older that I need to focus not just on moving but on moving well. I don’t believe that I have the “ideal” body but I’ve love to get to the headspace where I could truly believe that I do, not just for my own benefit but to be a role model to my teenage daughter. I am most excited about improving my core strength and posture and being able to come along to a welcoming, inclusive studio and community of people building their best body.

  57. Marilyn Roskell

    Hi Tarryn, this sounds like an awesome competition and a great opportunity to win a reformer membership. I’ll be honest to say I have never done Pilates before. I would love the chance to win as I think it would really help build my core strength. I am slight of build and older, I eat healthy and love working in the garden but I know I need more than that so I think this would be extremely beneficial to me ! Thanks Tarryn!

  58. Pamela Meola

    Hi! I had a crushed T6 when I was 11 yrs old, and had to maintain a strong core and back to elevate pain. I have no problems with it, but am a firm believer in Pilates, yoga and meditation for physical health and balance. I’m going to use my membership, weather I get it free or not, to increase my well-being, sleep better and have more energy!

  59. Marjorie Wallington

    Hi Tarryn, I was invited to join a Pilates class 8 years ago. Josh the instructor was also a dancer. Pilates was his passion. His tuition was easy to follow and I wasn’t struggling or over exerting to keep up with the class.
    HOWEVER…..The following day I was made aware of my core and other unused muscles!!!!
    Unfortunately I was unable to follow up on this opportunity at the time.
    HOWEVER….I am now retired, I walk I play bowls but I am losing muscle tone. I would dearly love to have that feeling again that I felt 8 years ago after just one Pilates class.

  60. Donna Thomas

    Hi Tarryn,
    I am 60 and had a plan to be my best self by now. Life happened and got in the way. Recently returning to yoga my plan has been reigniteď and I am eager to add Pilates to be my best self. To stop or at least slow old age taking over my body. I have always wanted to try reformer Pilates. I have never been a sport person or a dancer unfortunately. Reformer Pilates looks like the perfect solution.
    Can’t wait to get started.

  61. Malikah

    Hi Tarryn, I used to do Pilates when I was in my 20s 🙂 but I am 51 now. Life changed and went down hill after I turned 22, I became a single mom, 4 lives depended on my earnings, my parents, my daughter and my own. I have worked very very hard to provide my family, and supported my daughter all the way until she finished her degree. On top of that, I had a bleeding disorder, finally sorted it out in 2016 after years of struggling.
    My dad passed away 8 years ago, my daughter graduated 7 years, my mom recently placed in an aged care. I finally able to work hard and save enough money for myself to get my first home. In addition, I was lucky to have met my husband now, 3.5 years ago.
    I am now able to have time and money for myself, and I would love to do Pilates again to strengthen my core, my lumbar spine ( one of the cushions between the 4th and 5th bones is slightly out, been experiencing pain for years, manageable but at times is unbearable ), tone up and achieve flexibility. I know I can do it with your help, just a little push by You 🙂

  62. Linda

    Hi Taryn,
    I would like to be able to keep my body moving so that I can enjoy every part of my life. I want to be fit, energetic, capable and to not be restricted in my everyday life. I want to be able to travel and explore now that my children are grown. I want my body to take me all the places I want to go.

  63. Peta Adams

    Hi Tarryn,
    Having been someone that played team sports 6 days a week for most my life to experiencing an injury which then put my back out, I tried Pilates. It was the only form of exercise that helped my back through strengthening my core and associated muscles. Having a weak pelvic floor I find Pilates also takes away the embarrassment that I get with say boot camps or boxing where I’m jumping around. Working in the medical field I always promote Pilates to others as the No 1 form of exercise to improve back pain and increase strength without straining 🙂

  64. Nicole Vossen

    I’ll be 53 this year and have until about 3 years ago always been very active and been able to deal with injuries. The past 3 years I’ve spend a lot of time flying back and forth to look after my parents in Europe which prevented me to have a regular fitness regime and haven’t been doing much more than walking my dogs. I’ve moved nearly a year ago to the Mandurah area to be closer to my partners family and haven’t been able to get into a routine or any exercise. My mum recently passed away, I’ll be a first time grandmother in early May and have decided this is it; time to take MY life serious and do anything possible to make it last as long as possible. In the past I’ve have done Pilates and always found it very helpful to get over injuries but mainly to keep general strength and fitness.
    I would love to start going to your new studio not only will my body become a better one, it’ll give me the opportunity to meet new people and enrich my life. Thank you.

    • Karen Chittenden

      Hi Tarryn,

      Thankyou for the opportunity to win this wonderful prize!
      I will be 60 next year and even though in my mind I feel 20 my body certainly lets me know otherwise.
      I have moderate osteoarthritis in my lower back and hips which can be very painful.
      I want to be able to travel and enjoy life for as long as I can. I dont want to be restricted in what Im able to do. To do this I need to be be healthy in mind and body.
      I believe Pilates will help me achieve my best body ever ☺

    • Malikah

      Congrats Nicole !!!

      Best wishes,

  65. Nicole Vossen

    Apologies forgot to mention I have some lower back problems and I know Pilates will help me enormously with that as it has before.

  66. Jodie

    After having surgery about 3 years ago to loose weight I have put a lot back on and I am very disappointed in myself, but I am not going to let it get down, I just need to work hard and fix it so I am back to eating healthy, and I’m looking for exercise that will not only improve my fitness but my strength. Being in my 40’s now I am finding that parts hurt more and I am not as strong as I used to be and I do not want to get weaker as I get older and give up.

    My Nan is 95years old and younger livelier than some 60-70 I meet.
    I want to be like her.

  67. Lee Negri

    Hi Tarryn,
    I suffer with bad back on and off. I have also lost a bit of weight lately. and really need to tone up and get fitter, so winning this Pilates classes would help me achieve my goals. It would also help me strengthen up my muscles.

  68. Kristy Baldwin

    Heya Tarryn, I am 43 years old and have recently had a lot of surgery in my pelvis and lost all form and all hope of ever being able to fix it. My sister in law has told me that this may help, I am very keen to try it
    Thanks Kristy

  69. Jamie Nie

    Hi Tarryn

    What a wonderful competition you’re giving us the chance to enter 🙂

    I’m a huge advocate of pilates and I’ve been wanting to do classes run by physiotherapists since having children.

    Although I still regularly exercise, I’ve gone from strong tummy muscles to no core strength.

    My youngest started full time school so now I’m able to make the time and do something about my core, weak muscles and poor posture to stop my aches – especially my neck!

    Unfortunately, it’s not financially viable for me to take regular pilates classes at the moment. Our son has a medical condition and to assist with covering the out of pocket expenses (he’s taken care of through both the public and private systems), we chose to remove our extras insurance to reduce the monthly premiums.

    Good luck with the new venture in Mandurah! I have no doubt you will have plenty of people signing up as new members.

    Jamie 🙂

  70. Jacqui Stein

    Hi , I have tried doing Pilates over the last 10 years many times by following a DVD … not very successfully I might add . unfortunately I have not lived anywhere where lessons were available to me .. now is the time ! I’m looking forward to finally having a clinic close by .. 4 years ago I had a lamectomy at L4 /5 where they also found a cyst and crystals in the spinal area. I find some stiffness in this part of my back now and believe Pilates to be the answer to this and more … so I’m really looking forward to meeting with you and working out with you in the future …

  71. Sharna

    Hi tarryn

  73. amanda steenkamp


    Wishing you all the best with your venture.

    I think reformer pilates will help me get active again.

    Had a severe setback 18months ago with my back (genetic & previous accident). Used to do cardio boxing 3 times a week in Tassie, felt great! Made the move to WA, started working again after the kids were big enough, travelling 2hrs a day for work each day meant not much time or energy for exercise then bam! All that sitting driving & computer work…7weeks of hell! I just have not been the same. 18months on and I’m still struggling. I just can’t wait to see your time tables so I can slot in some much needed rehab/exercise/pain relief! Good luck everyone!

  74. Danelle

    Hi Tarryn,
    I absolutely love pilates and have been following best body on instagram for a while. I just love everything about pilates. Still very new to reformer pilates but it is just amazing how you can use your own body strength to get stronger. I have been doing pilates on and off for 7 years (had two kids, immigrated and was just too tired to do any form of excercise). I have just recently started pilates again and it is just awesome! I even got my mother to start (at the young age of 63) 🙂 Looking forward to seeing best body in Mandurah and wish you all the best.

  75. Carol Hazel

    Hi Tarryn,
    I’m turning 60 this year and fairly new to Pilates. I’ve been managing chronic pain for more years than I care to remember My initial aim was to work on areas of my body that I notice have deteriorated especially strengthen my knees so I can get off the floor without using furniture to assist 🙂 After reading about your reformer Pilates it got me thinking how small a game I am playing in the area of my body. Yes I would love to build a better me! I have been hiding in a body that I am embarrassed about for way too long, it’s time to take it to the next level!!!

  76. Marina

    Congratulations Tarryn on setting up your new Pilates business. I have been attending another Pilates class and have really enjoyed the flexibility my body gained from it. Still a long way to go though!
    I am keen to join your class to learn new techniques and to keep it interesting. I do have spinal injuries etc etc and have recently left full time employment so have the time now to finally look after me.
    Exciting times ahead for you and everyone who joins your classes.
    Looking forward to gaining my best body with your help! Great name

  77. Cherry Ballard

    I have had a gastric sleeve and have lost all my muscle tone. I have been told Pilates can help this.

  78. Sue Harms

    Congratulations on the new studio!

    I am looking forward to getting my core strength back again. I moved from Melbourne 6 years ago to Mandurah and really missed doing my reformer classes, as I have had a bad lower back for 30 years.

    Mandurah has been crying out for this necessary Best Bodies !

    I look forward to seeing the agenda and timetable when it comes out 🙂

  79. Amanda Palmer

    Hi Taryn this old body is crying out for help!! With the aches and pains from age, menopause, lupus and fibromyalgia I really need the motivation to exercise and strengthen my core and keep supple. I hate the gym and have previously enjoyed reformer Pilates. Funny thing is that I actually have my own reformer but don’t make the time to do the exercises. I’m desperate for some help to get fit and healthy again and live my best life

  80. Nicole Pegg

    Hi Tarryn,
    I’ve struggled with mental and physical health for years and last year made the decision to help myself to get healthy. Three weeks into boot camp, I broke my ankle and it was a massive setback. My ankle is healed and so is my soul, now I just need to find my best body! Please, please help me to do that!!

  81. Karen Montgomery

    2019 is my year! The year I take time out for myself both mentally & physically. A Best Body Reformer Pilates membership will help me on my journey to a healthier life, healthier body & overall well-being.
    My doctor recommended Reformer Pilates to help strengthen my back as I have a Pars Defect. My children who are very fit, healthy adults are also urging me to make this commitment to myself.
    Here’s to Best Body coming to Mandurah

  82. Elle

    Hi, long story short, I need motivating! I need to be committed in order to make improvements to mind and body. I would love to be involved but always put things off due to finances or time constraints. I’d love nothing more than a good stretch and to feel relaxed, supple and invigorated instead of tight, aching and tired!

  83. Jamie

    Congratulations to the winners! I’m sure you’ll feel a million bucks within 6 months 🙂

    Lately I have lost my motivation for the gym so would love to try something new! I travel to Perth for work from Mandurah so am constantly sitting, I therefore have regular back and knee pain. I have heard reformer Pilates can help 🙂

    Hi Tarryn, my gym membership ended a few weeks ago and I am torn between joining a new gym or just changing my direction towards to Pilates or Yoga . I have chrons disease, interstitial cystitis and suspected fibromyalgia. I suffer with migraines, pain in the neck, shoulders and hips and pelvic area. From past experience I do know I can better handle my autoimmune diseases with a stronger core and that is how I think Pilates can help me. I also work part time in a sit down job which is putting stress on my hips. Basically I feel like body is getting old before it’s time and I desperately want to try something new and challenging but also gentle enough on my compromised immune system and body mechanics.

      Hi Tarryn,

      I have never tried reformer Pilates, been a long time, since I’ve really felt my best physically, would really like to change that. Could you please let me know what it is and how much etc and where this class will be based.

      Kind regards

    I have back issues and have heard the reformers would help! I would love to win a membership!

    Hi Tarryn,

    I’m so excited that there is a reformer Pilates studio in Mandurah! I have searched for one nearby for so long.

    I have always taken my fitness quite seriously. A few years ago I had an injury resulting in 4 knee operations and was unable to continue with most of my normal fitness activities. Thank god I was introduced to Pilates, it helped me through my recovery and has been my main form of exercise ever since. I have wanted to try reformer Pilates for a long time and almost squealed with delight when I saw your studio pop up on the Mandurah boardwalk!

    I am currently 5 weeks post-caesarean after having my first child and have just been cleared by my physiotherapist to start core exercises again and to give reformer Pilates a go. I would be absolutely delighted to win this membership and be able to kick-start my fitness and start working on my core strength again outside of the house rather than in my loungeroom! Haha

    Hi Tarryn,
    I am so excited that there is finally a Pilates studio near me. I am an active person, I go to the gym 3 times a week and play netball at League level 3 times a week. I juggle all of this while studying full time at university.
    Recently I have found that I have been struggling connecting my body and mind, I lose interest at the gym very quickly and with all the hard effort, I haven’t been seeing any progression, which becomes disheartening. I’ve done Pilates before and during that time I never felt more alive. It made me feel like I’ve accomplished something, I felt connected, happy and that whatever the day threw at me I could handle it. I would really love the opportunity to have guidance and support with improving muscle tone and strength, as well as my overall appearance so I can feel confident within myself everyday.

    Hi ya!
    My lovely massage guy told me about this place! I have been going to him for nearly 2 years now since I had my little girl. He recons Pilates might be able to save me. Pregnancy really wrecked my body and I don’t mean that in a vain sense, it literally took away any ability for me to play my favourite sports, daily I have to watch how I step and just recently I have added Sciatica to the mix. I am not sure I could carry another bubba until I can gain some stability in my pelvis (I have SI joint dysfunction). I really loved being active and I just wish for a chance to be able to run freely and get back into gym classes etc I have never tried Pilates and would love the opportunity to try it out. Thanks again for the opportunity xo

    Hi Tarryn, whilst working in aged care I suffered a lower back injury to be specific an annular tear and bulged disc between the l4/5 discs. It caused severe pain and ongoing problems including weight gain of around 12kgs and after over a year since the injury occurred I am really wanting to work on getting my fitness and figure back to where it was. However I have to be selective about what kind of fitness I take part in so as not to create issues with my back. Pilates I feel would be the perfect solution and I have looked at the reformer specifically but the classes are always booked out at other places and I would love to be considered for your new Best Body. I really appreciate the opportunity to enter for this membership. Thanks.

    Well where do I start, am going through a bad health patch at the moment and getting ready for another knee replacement in July. I used to do Reformer Pilates in Albany, and loved it. However since moving back up this way, I have not been able to find a job as yet. I am receiving the New Start payments, while I’m waiting for my Carers Payment application to be processed. So I could really do with something positive right now, this membership would help out more than you could imagine both mentally and physically .
