Park Meadows Pilates’ Testimonials
Hear what our Satisfied Guests have to Say!
The first six months were a bit discouraging as the symptoms did not seem to respond to the PT and Pilates exercises. (I’m sure I’d have seen better results with more consistent practice.) However, about 4 months ago, I noticed that I had not experienced any of the tingling down my arms that led me to seek medical help. Monday, the doc read my MRI and declared that everything is much improved. The disk bulge has retreated, and everything in the neck is improving. He said to ‘resume living your life’, even advised that I was cleared to go skiing!
Thank you Andi for your excellent lead work in my recovery — others contributed, but I consider your treatment key to my recovery. Lindy, thank you for providing an excellent treatment and exercise facility. If not for PMP, I’d be recovering from surgery and looking forward to living the rest of my life with my neck in a titanium cage. Jeff Lacher
Pilates is not just about exercising, it’s about improving your overall quality of life and at PMP that’s what they strive for. PMP provides a safe and friendly environment that will meet anyone’s needs. PMP has such small group classes which means each client gets lots of attention, one of the best things about PMP!
And if that’s not enough, PMP continues to provide their clients with the latest cutting-edge training and now offers new classes, including CoreAlign and Balanced Body Barre classes. Katie
I’ve had lots of injuries that I feel are now manageable with receiving Physical Therapy and Pilate’s at PMP. At the beginning of each class, the instructors always ask what’s going on with our bodies so they can make the appropriate modifications if needed. The classes have taught me how to incorporate Pilate’s principals in everyday life and other activities I participate in. Every class has some form of education that is so valuable I always leave class feeling more educated about Pilate’s and movement. Every week I seem to be getting stronger, more aware of my body and am loving the changes. Joanne S.
I have always been active and exercised but had spent the last 10 or so years in school and training and somehow lost site of my back and core strength. Prior to coming to PMP, I had repeatedly tried to start weight lifting or running again but always seemed to end up with an injury. In my first 5 sessions with Kriste I came to understand how interdependent all of my muscles and joints were and that my back problems were just a symptom of many other underlying weaknesses. Not only has Kriste been a tremendous Pilates instructor but she has also been a ‘body educator’ as she continues to teach me about my musculoskeleton and how to properly use it. I am now certain that I have joints that I have never used correctly, not even as a child.
From my first 5 sessions, I continued with both private sessions and group classes. After about 2 months I started discovering muscles that I never knew I had. This continues on almost a weekly basis now where I find myself waking up and realizing that I have ‘grown’ a new back muscle, shoulder muscle and even oddly enough foot muscles! For the first time I feel balanced when I stand and walk. I find myself ‘wheeling’ through my hips instead of swinging from my waist to walk and most importantly, I have NO back pain! I am an avid horseback rider and am amazed at how much pilates translates into the saddle. For 5 years I have been convinced that my horse doesn’t turn well to the left because of his back problems and have been accusing him of being crooked. Well it turns out that I’m the crooked one as I can’t turn left properly! Kriste has been fantastic in helping me with my riding position and has even come to watch me on him so that she can better design my workout. I think my horse is now Kriste’s biggest fan!
In short, the journey that I am on with Kriste and PMP has been nothing short of life-changing and worth every dime spent. It’s my time to relax and stretch, strengthen my muscles and learn how to finally use my body properly. This life and this body are a gift which I have truly re-discovered this year. Pilates will be my lifelong exercise that hopefully will keep me skiing, riding, golfing, hiking (you name it!) well into my old age.
