My Story

I used to be an exercise-phobe. The gym intimidated me. I was too lazy to cycle, and the thought of a 5k run made me break into a cold sweat. Then, in 2010, I heard about this trendy new exercise fad, Pilates. It appealed to me as it was low impact (music to my cardio-phobic ears), improved strength and flexibility, and gave you abs of steel.

I signed up for a class and was hooked after 1 lesson.

Within 2 months, I could feel my body changing – getting stronger and more flexible. I became aware of my body’s imbalances, strengths and weaknesses. It also helped calm my anxiety.

Pilates is the best investment I’ve ever made in my health. It’ll be the best one you make too.
