Approaching 70 with age and
arthritis related mobility issues, I decided to try a
Pilates class and came along to Club-K in Hextable in January.
The classes are small,
friendly and Luke makes them fun. He is encouraging and
explains things clearly, so I am able to repeat some of the
exercises at home too. A few weeks in I was already seeing
the benefits in improved posture, strength and flexibility.
Now I can get up off the floor unaided and touch my toes
again. I even managed a couple of hours on the dance floor
at the recent Swanley Rugby Club Ball!
