Dr. Carol Anderson

“Five years ago I developed a bulging disk in my low lumbar spine. The pain was excruciating and progressed to the point that it became difficult to perform the most basic activities.  From my first session at PFC, I could tell this was going be effective! After several months of private sessions, I was out of pain completely and I  had returned to performing all daily activities….and more.  I am an advocate of the therapeutic approach to Pilates at PFC for every body at any age.  Every one of my patients could benefit from the practice….especially my pregnant patients who will experience postural changes that often result in back pain  The stretching and strengthening benefits them throughout pregnancy and can make delivery and postpartum recovery much easier.  I have no intention of giving up my Pilates practice and I will continue to make referrals to PFC because of the tremendous confidence I have in their approach.

Dr. Christopher Paskowski

“Several years ago, I strained my back playing golf. It was the worst pain I had experienced since having appendicitis as a child.  A friend and colleage, suggested I go to Pilates Fitness Center for a Pilates for Golfers class in order to improve my flexibility.  So far, I haven’t had another occurrence of back pain in 3 years. And as an added bonus, I’ve gained distance hitting my driver as well!  I highly recommend Pilates Fitness Center to anyone wanting to maintain an active lifestyle. Their experience and therapeutic approach gives me great confidence!”  Christopher Paskowski, M.D.

Dr. Tom Merrill

“I added Pilates to my fitness regimen several years ago to improve my flexibility and to build core strength.  In the process I’ve come to believe that Pilates at Pilates Fitness Center is truly for EVERY BODY in every stage of life.  The physically fit person who already has a fitness regimen doing weights and cardio will benefit from the stretching and fascia release that are the cornerstone of the Pilates method. And for those new to exercise, the core strength and flexibility gained through their work at PFC will help prevent future injuries. I’ve watched patients I’ve referred to PFC with chronic back pain experience almost immediate relief with the expertise of their team! On a personal note, I recently had a shoulder injury and through PT and Pilates Fitness Center, I have avoided a surgery that would have impacted my ability to work and enjoy my favorite activities.”  Tom Merrill, MD

Dr. Tom Connally

“I started my Pilates journey at PFC in March 2014 after experiencing back pain. I tried Pilates to see if it could help me get back to my regular routine of work, family life and recreation.  It did!  I am back to all my previous activities and my overall physial health has improved. n I highly recommend Pilates at PFC to my patients. They offer a calm, therapeutic environment and all the instructors are well-trained to work with a variety of clients no matter where they are physcially or what they do professionally.” Dr. Tom Connally

Cathy Kelly

“I’m coming up on the 10th anniversary of my first Pilates lesson with Kim. What do I have to show for it?  The first year I grew half an inch – not some mid-life growth spurt, just better spinal support and strength.  Since then, Pilates has given my body the resilience to continue a really active lifestyle through my 50s. And when age and fate interfere?  The smart, funny, talented folks at PFC helped me prep for and rehab from two intensive shoulder surgeries. By now, I can’t imagine my life without them or without Pilates and Im eager to see how my practice develops for the next 10 years!”   Cathy Kelly

The year I started coming to Pilates Fitness Center, I had fallen two times and I realized that my balance and fitness levels were deplorable—and that I needed to do something about it.  When I began with my private lessons I recognized immediately that Pilates was systematically raised  building me to a fitness level that would free me to live life.  I was only hoping for improvement in my balance and tone, which I got.  But I also found I was able to resume my outdoor activities, and I have more stamina and strength.  Over the years I’ve also seen more and more wisdom in the Pilates approach to overall fitness.  The most important thing I have to say particularly about Pilates Fitness Center is that Linda and Kim (the owners) are VERY good at what they do, and they make sure that all of the instructors are also very good.  Due to my demanding work schedule, I take Pilates classes at different times each week, so I’ve had classes with everyone they currently have instructing and love them all!  It does not matter your age or fitness level, if you consistently attend the classes, Pilates Fitness Center will improve your life.
