I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 25 years ago and I was looking for an exercise program to commit to so my symptoms would be relieved. I found Maureen as a fitness trainer and she led me to the benefits of Pilates. Since then, I have perfect posture; even my younger sister commented that I stand straighter. I have a stronger core which makes everyday tasks easier to accomplish.
Pilates has also been a lifesaver for my low back pain. Just recently, my orthopedic doctor looked at the problems in my back after an MRI. He told me he would be afraid to see my back and spine, if I have not been doing Pilates for the last 20 years! Spinal fusion on 2 levels is being kept at bay, and my symptoms managed because of Pilates. I look forward to my Pilates workout, because I know, my achy body will feel so much better after my class!
