When I started attending Club Pilates Huntersville in June of 2021, I had never done Pilates before and didn’t know anything about it.
I just knew my 53-year-old body wasn’t getting any younger, and my various past orthopedic surgeries (knees and ankle) were always my excuse to not work out out of fear of re-injury.
I came to the free introduction class offering with an open mind.
I was immediately super impressed with the instructor’s level of understanding in anatomy and fitness.
She showed me modifications to protect myself while maximizing the benefits of a Pilates workout.
Now, 22 months later, I’m obsessed with Pilates - I attend classes 4-6 times a week!
The best part is, I no longer need to take the anti-inflammatory medication prescribed by my orthopedic surgeon.
Due to the strong core I have built, I now feel safe participating in many outdoor sports, like hiking, kayaking, trail running, and golfing. I even ran my first 10k in 2022!
I haven’t felt this strong and healthy in over a decade.
My favorite instructor Erin is a goddess and my body thanks her! Club Pilates is definitely worth checking out, no matter your fitness level or goals. You WILL benefit from Pilates!
