I was recommended to do Pilates as physical therapy by my surgeon after my second back surgery in four years. They felt that the use of springs to assist my movements would be the best way for me to strengthen my core to avoid a third surgery.
This is when I made a lucky choice to go to see Chantel. Within a few minutes of talking to her I could tell she understood the pain I was still in and how to approach my recovery. She explained how we would progress and what we were looking for as signs to advance. She set goals for me and knew when to push me and when I was probably pushing too hard.
After the first month of private classes she recommended for me to join the normally scheduled classes, which frankly scared me at first because I wasn’t sure I would receive the same level of teaching. I was completely wrong.
I have learned something knew from each of them as I have progressed through different classes. Due to the times I can come in I have worked a lot with Jordan and Kara, and they have the same type of knowledge and understanding that I received from Chantel.
All of their teaching, cheering on, and knowledge has brought me to the point where six and a half months after my second back surgery, I am not only pain free but stronger than I have been in 15-20 years without worry about a third back surgery.
I can honestly say that they have changed my life and all I can say is thank you to Chantel and her wonderful team.
