When and what made you decide to join Tempo Pilates?
I joined Tempo Pilates in May. I have a hip condition that has kept me from running these past few years. My physiotherapist had told me I needed to strengthen my core, and I finally got around to it by joining Tempo Pilates and attending classes at least 4-5 times a week.
How has Pilates changed your day-to-day life? Have you noticed any differences when you are at work?
So my hip problem which usually flared up for me at least once a month has basically disappeared, and I’m running my first half-marathon next Sunday (after I was told to stop running long distance back in 2013).
What I like the most about Tempo Pilates is…
If you find the moves too challenging, you can lose yourself in the breathing or the music, and before you know it, that 2-minute difficult plank is over.
What is your favourite Tempo Pilates playlist Tune?
When I first started and was getting really annoyed and worn out by the ‘over and under’ leg presses I memorized the lyrics to ‘Everything’ by Maya Jane Coles that always played during that set (June playlist I think). Now I hear that song on my playlist at home and think “over and under.”
What motivates you to maintain a regular exercise routine?
Being able to run, and not being crippled by hip pain. Of course, feeling like my body is looking really toned and strong since I started doing Tempo Pilates obsessively is a pretty nice added bonus.
