  • It’s going to happen to everyone and there is nothing that you can do to prevent it! Getting older!!

    But what you can do is still be in peak physical condition…no matter how old you are, just like Joseph Pilates in the picture below at the ripe old age of 82!

    Gone are the day of dragging out the “it’s just age” excuse every time you find it challenging to stay on track with your health and fitness.

    We have clients who are well in to their 70’s who are kicking butt!

    Although Julie hasn’t quite hit the 70 mark, still being a spring chicken at 66 years old, she has transformed from someone who had no confidence in her ability to move to doing exercises that people half her age struggle with!

    The number one factor that has enabled Julie to get such great results is having an open mind and rejecting the notion that AGE=INABILITY. Because it doesn’t!

    So be inspired by a grandmother of 7 who is also working 4 days a week and who just gets on with it!

    I have been a client of Pilates Plus since its inception in 2009. Loretta and her team have worked with me over the years to keep me physically able to maintain the demands of long distance running, in events ranging from the marathon to 160 km. Since starting with Pilates Plus, I have dramatically decreased the amount of “down” time due to injury, and have not had a running-related injury for 3 years now. I am extremely happy with these results. As I move into my late 40s and beyond, I want to ensure I continue to run for as long as possible and I am confident that with weekly pilates sessions I will be able to do this.

    I was someone who always put their family first and myself last. As a consequence it had been years since I had exercised at all and I was feeling sluggish and tired all the time. I decided to try something different by going to Pilates Plus Fitness because I knew a gym would be pointless (I’d have good intentions and just would not end up not going).I now have a training schedule which keeps me accountable with the benefit of being trained by professionals in a small group environment. I am always shown the correct technique when doing my exercises and am pushed to give it that extra bit to get the most out of my workouts.As a result I am now stronger and fitter and have lost weight and centimeters in the process. I actually look forward to exercising now which I never thought I would like doing in the past! I have seen the improvements in the past few months by having so much more energy, sleeping better and being conscious of what I put in my body in terms of nutrition.I have learnt and progressed so much since joining – I highly recommend Pilates Plus Fitness!

    Pilates Plus has been a key factor in improving my golf. Fellow players have remarked how I have improved my rotation and ability to hit through the ball with a more even swing. Of course this increased flexibility is due to the Pilates and Garuda programs that I have undertaken at Pilates Plus. What has amazed me is that I am stronger and more flexible now, even though I am years older. I realise I need to practice more, however, I am really pleased with the results so far having brought my handicap down from 32 to 19! So for any golfers out there who want extra assistance to help improve their game, then consider a program at Pilates Plus!

    Garuda at Pilates Plus fitness has provided me with improved balance, more mechanically correct (flowing) movement and strength.It has given me a feeling of achievement and that there is more of something really special yet to come.
    I have within weeks of commencing of Garuda classes felt a great flexibility benefit that helps practical, day-to-day activities. I am doing things that I would have had difficulty doing a year ago. Garuda improves strength and movement. I have found it to be challenging, yet enjoyable, satisfying hard work. It has given me the confidence to take on other challenges.
    My feeling is that regardless of one’s personal fitness or flexibility level everyone should give Garuda a try.

    I had a moderate level of fitness before I started at Pilates Plus Fitness and I always thought pilates was a low impact “alternative” exercise. Well I cannot believe how much pilates has opened my eyes and inspired me. I am honestly amazed at how much inner strength it has helped me achieve and how much my general fitness has improved as a result of it. I have mild scoliosis, but with the support from my terrific trainers, I have improved core strength , greater awareness of how to move my body and as a result I have dramatically improved my posture. I stand taller and straighter, so much so that at a recent doctor’s checkup I was 2cm taller than the last he measured me! It is empowering and I love the challenge. As a 41yo working mum, Pilates is my time!

    I’ve been dealing with back pain for over 8 years now. I have a bulging disc in my lower back. I had problems with long drives, long flights, lifting shopping bags, etc. Every episode of my back pain used to last over four weeks and this had impacted my lifestyle to some extent.
    I tried Physiotherapy, Osteopath, Chiro, etc. I guess physio and Osteo are good in terms of reducing the pain during each pain episode, but they are not final remedy in the long run. I have sought advice from several specialists about my problem and they all agreed that the damage has been done and there’s no fix for it, however I could remove the pain by strengthening my core muscles and increasing my flexibility.
    I started Pilates with Loretta in early 2010. During the initial sessions, some of Loretta’s instructions didn’t make much sense to me, but I later learnt that some muscles should be able to switch on and off independently without having much impact on the others. I guess this is a very important point.
    Now I can comfortably say that my core muscles are stronger, my posture is in a better condition and more importantly I do not have back pain. On one hand, I now understand what is going on with my body and what is causing the pain and on the other hand my muscles are stronger to support various loads and body movements. I intend to continue doing Pilates to avoid pain and remain healthy. I am thankful to Pilates Plus staff for the hard work and sharing their knowledge and experience with me to improve my well-being.

    I tried it and it has been a very good experience – nothing daunting: just you, the trainer, the fresh air, the natural surrounds and the friendly birds chirping. The exercises catered to my ability and I was able to perform without any difficulty whatsoever. Even managed to run round the track which I started with much apprehension but made it in good time, and actually look forward to it now. Also tried something very new – boxing! So much fun! – tests the brains and co-ordination as well. Anna, the personal trainer knows her moves and gives me the confidence and enjoyment with her personalised training.

    My initial response to participating in Fitness Buddies was to boost the work that I have found to be so beneficial with pilates. I found my sessions with Anna more than enjoyable. I even surprised myself at how much fun I was having, and had quite a laugh at myself with boxing gloves. Working outside in the fresh air is most rewarding. I even put aside my inhibitions at doing this in public and realized that nobody takes any notice. I can highly recommend it!

  • After seven months of work with Loretta, Anna and other Pilates Plus team members, life is healthier happier, and full of amazing possibilities. I have:

    Lost weight, developed muscle tone and strength, reduced the size of my – waistline, hips, chest and upper back.

    There are many subtle advantages to Pilates Plus programs and I have really enjoyed the “brain training” that comes as part of the package – from remembering routines to counting repetitions, the brain learns that it needs to get on board or it will get left behind.

    The Pilates Plus work “in the park” helped me identify a lack of aerobic fitness and as a result I have commenced some work to address that need.

    In addition to general health and wellbeing improvement, what Pilates Plus has meant for me is that I:

    • Am less concerned with the physical niggles of aging
    • Can be as active with my grandchildren as they need me to be
    • Am looking forward to the enjoyment of new things that my body is learning to do
    • Achieve more in the garden and around the house in a given period of time
    • Am at least suspending becoming a grumpy old man for a few years yet 😉

    If people were to be contemplating what Pilates Plus studio and outdoor programs might do for them, I would have no hesitation in saying that there is a package of benefits to be gained that I have enjoyed including:

    • Weight loss
    • Body shape improvement
    • General strength improvement
    • Overcoming some long term injuries
    • General wellbeing
    • Developing a more systematic approach to health and wellbeing starting with knowledge and attitude, and including stretching and exercise.
    • Developing familiarity with muscles and muscle groups to allow isolation and stress reduction in particular body areas
    • Posture – awareness of it and desire to improve it by better use of muscles, joints and spine.

    Many thanks Loretta and the Pilates Plus team for putting me on a productive life path and helping me stay there.
