I don't want to sound over-dramatic, but my experience at Pilates 4 Women Only has been life changing! I had a herniated disc in my neck, lots of tension, pain, migraines, stiffness when my doctors told me I had to be stretching and exercising daily or I would end up needing (another, my 3rd!) spinal epidural shot for the pain. I have never been a person that actually enjoys working out. I don't hate it, but I always dreaded going to a class or workout-until I found Michele at Pilates 4 Women Only. She has amazing classes that are gentle enough for my neck, but targeted to reduce the tension and build overall strength. After just the first few classes I knew I would be committed to working with Michele and that she could do what all the other group yoga and physical therapists had been unable to do- give me my life back and keep me out of daily pain!
Michele is so incredibly knowledgeable about the body, muscles and what exercises are best for each person, she constantly blows me away. I have been going for over a year and we still do new moves every week, she never runs out of new things to try or ways to improve our workouts. I can move my neck, sleep and sit without pain now and this was something I had been unable to do for almost 5 years. The doctors kept giving me pain pills, Michele gave me solutions and hope.
Even more than the pain relief, I love Pilates 4 Women because of Michele. She makes you feel like you are working out with a friend- one who is incredibly smart, thoughtful, really cares about your overall well-being, you have fun with, and you feel good, both mentally ad physically, after you leave. Even though I have improved SO much, I would continue seeing Michele even if I felt 100% all the time. The classes are just FUN, and starting here was such a great decision, I can't recommend it enough! Do yourself a favor and give this studio and try, you'll see why it's different- and better!
