Why I do this..
After years of back problems to the point where I would struggle to get dressed in the mornings at age 29, weekly Pilates practice enabled me to get back to playing rugby, doing squats and deadlifts in the gym and even improved my mobility and performance.
I still have good days and bad days, but I got my life back and for me it was absolutely game changing. You learn a lot that you can apply to every day life to improve your general health and wellness from Pilates, from sitting correctly and getting up from chairs more often, to engaging certain muscles when you lift things to protect your back.
Everyone should be doing some variation of this type of work, whether its to deal with an existing issue, help prevent future issues or just to generally improve fitness and complement any current activity. I recently left my 14 year professional services career to start Pilates Guy and help more people like me get past their barriers.
