The one thing we love most about seeing everyone's smiling faces in class each week, is when we see people achieve something they didn’t think they could, or when we see how much people have improved since they first walked through our doors.
This month we would like to shine the spotlight on one of our HQ clients, Suanne Murdoch, and everything that she has achieved since starting Pilates Classes with us.
Suanne started coming to our classes around nine months ago with the aim of improving her posture and helping her aching shoulders. She began with beginner exercises, learning how to activate her deep abdominals and trying to get both legs into table top (in the air). Suanne has attended classes once a week, almost religiously since her very first session and in this time has improved so much.
In the nine months that Suanne has been coming to Pilates HQ, she has gone from attending beginner classes once a week, to now, being able to jump into an intermediate class, when the time suits.
We had a chat to Suanne recently to ask her a few questions about her Pilates Journey so far.
Why did you start Pilates?
I was having trouble with my shoulders and lower back at work because I work at a desk all day.
How long have you been doing Pilates for?
I started in March/ April this year.
What is your favourite thing about coming to classes at Pilates HQ?
The laughs, comfortable environment, the new challenges every class brings and Steph for her caring nature and knowledge. Thank you.
What has kept you interested in Pilates and why do you keep coming back to class each week?
Comfortable environment, the small personal sized classes, the challenges each class brings and the feeling of accomplishment at the end of a class.
What improvements have you noticed since coming along to Pilates Classes regularly?
I can now get through a day at work without aching shoulders. I can get my legs into table top with no problems (this was impossible when l first started). The other bonus for me has been, l have dropped a dress size. This wasn't my aim but a great result.
Anything else you want to add about your Pilates Journey so far?
I have felt very comfortable and at Ease at Pilates HQ. Thank you.
Well Done Suanne!
