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.

Approximately 4 years ago, I was referred by my rheumatologist for physical therapy for chronic back pain related to Degenerative Disc Disease. The pain greatly limited my ability to engage in active life and would routinely wake me up in the middle of the night, requiring me to get up and sit in a chair for an extended period prior to returning to bed. An uninterrupted night’s sleep was a rare occurrence. When I completed physical therapy, my therapist recommended that I consider Pilates to build on the progress I had made. He specifically recommended the Pilates Fitness Center (PFC) and Linda Roberts. She is a physical therapist, and he was confident that she could be helpful to me. Helpful doesn’t capture it! Over the past 4 years, I have gained significant core strength which, in turn, has greatly helped my back. I am now pain free and can engage fully in physical activities. I have come to appreciate a sound night’s sleep as a precious gift from God. My balance and posture have also greatly improved, and I feel strong and well.

I must also share another experience I had at PFC. I was enrolled for a time in a Barre class. At the time, I was struggling with persistent bursitis in my hip that was very painful. One day Kim Jackson, the instructor, led a class designed to “open up our hips.” The next day I noticed that the pain from my bursitis was gone from my hip for the first time in months. I couldn’t believe it! I didn’t say anything to anyone for several days for fear the bursitis would return, but it hasn’t! On occasion, I get a hint that the bursitis is threatening to return, but I engage in the same exercises that we did in Barre class and the pain relents. I don’t have words to say how grateful I am for the health benefits I have gained through Pilates. I had forgotten what life was like when I didn’t hurt. In many ways, Pilates gave me my life back. The instructors at PFC are incredible – I can’t say enough! Too grateful for words.

Over three years ago I had a total hip replacement and I was very nervous about falling.

After starting my Pilates over two years ago, I’m no longer afraid of falling! I absolutely

feel better and I can do things like lean over and pick up a newspaper in my driveway

with ease. That may not sound like a bid deal to most people, unless you can’t do it!

Pilates will be a part of my life from now on!
