What prompted you to begin Pilates?
My wife Bernadine was working here as a Massage Therapist at the time. I was having back pain from working, and she thought it would help. So I started working with Monica and I've been working out ever since.
How many years have you been practicing Pilates?
What are some of the most influential or important reasons you continue with your Pilates practice?
After a car accident in 2010, I needed to rehab my back, shoulder, and ankles. Pilates helped me heal all of those things. Now, it just makes me feel better overall.
How has Pilates effected your life?
I'm now more flexible than I was twenty years ago. My back and ankles are healed and stronger than they have been. My weekly appointments with Suzie keep my back free from pain.
What is your favorite Pilates exercise? and why?
I don't know that I have a favorite exercise. When Suzie isn't turning me into a pretzel, I guess I enjoy working with that exercise working with the gondola pole and balance. It has really helped tremendously. (or just overall stretching.)
