Exercising with Osteoporosis
on 16 Nov 2018 by Liz | Occupation: Housewife
I love the way Susan and Teejay are able to fit the pilates programme to everone’s individual needs; in my case osteoporosis. I could not do high impact exercises such as skipping or running on tarmac, so Susan fitted a small trampoline to the end of my Reformer bench.
Having been diagnosed 3 years ago, my check-up bone density scan taken last year showed that my bones were improving: one hip had gone from osteoporosis to having less serious osteopenia, ie thinning of the bone rather than looking like a Swiss cheese!
I also think the exercises improve my circulation as they seem to involve every muscle in the body; I come out of my weekly class feeling stronger and fitter.
What’s not to like about doing a work out lying on your back!
You are never too old!
on 21 Sep 2018 by Tessa | Occupation: Retired
You are never too old for Applied Pilates – and I speak from experience! I am 84 and the class is the most worthwhile hour I spend in the week to make sure I can going on doing all the things I love. It helps my strength, has rediscovered and improved my balance enormously and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to maintain their stamina and general wellbeing. There is always professional support on hand throughout the session which is much appreciated by everyone.
Best for strength and flexibility
on 9 May 2018 by Finella T | Occupation: Lettings & Property Management
Over the years I have tried various forms of exercise and I have found this to be the most beneficial and enjoyable. Having suffered from lower back pain in the past, the reformers and the structured exercises have really helped. I rarely now have any problems. Susan has been brilliant at encouraging me to progress and keeps a watchful eye out if any errors. Not only are the classes very enjoyable; Susan and Teejay are Pilates professionals with very high levels of expertise. I know the exercises they have set for me work for me and not against me. When I finish the class I feel better and stronger every time. I highly recommend this studio to everyone.
Amazing Results For Back Pain – Best Money I’ve Ever Spent!
on 30 Apr 2018 by Vicki W | Occupation: Educational Psychologist
I honestly can’t recommend Susan & Teejay highly enough. After suffering from lower back pain for years as a result of hypermobility, I hit a wall early last year when the sciatic pain was unbearable. I read some reviews for Applied Pilates & thought I would try an initial consultation. I was really impressed with Teejay & continued to have a few 1:1 sessions before moving into group classes. The reduction in my pain has been amazing, never thought it would go away & still can’t quite believe it! Susan’s classes have been fantastic, & most recently she has helped me to continue exercising throughout my pregnancy & given me brilliant care & support. I can’t imagine not coming to these classes, I’m hooked! Thanks to you both. I recommend you to everyone!
Great for strength!
on 18 Mar 2018 by Nicky | Occupation: Chef
I can’t recommend Applied Pilates enough.
Susan and Teejay are wonderfully patient and thorough teachers, always advising and supporting you through every different exercise.
My strength has come on leaps and bounds since I have been attending classes. The hour flies by and is always very friendly and enjoyable.
I’m well at last!
on 7 Mar 2018 by Paul | Occupation: Electrician
Having had trouble, well all sorts of trouble with nerve pain in my back (sciatica ) my neck arms, fingers, knees and feet for 20 years (I know, l’m a walking nightmare), I can finally say I’m so pleased and relieved to have found this studio. Over the years I’ve seen consultant after consultant, Physios Osteopaths, Alexanders, you name it I’ve been there handed over the cash. Well, I can finally and genuinely say I’m so relieved to have found a place that has improved my situation greatly. It’s hard work but I enjoy the effort and believe in putting in and getting out ! I’m not perfect, crikey but I’m so much better and I’m more positive about my body and how to look after it! Thank you very much Susan & Teejay.
A Fantastic Find!
on 23 Nov 2017 by Ciara C | Occupation: Tech Community Manager
I joined Applied Pilates at the start of 2017 after doing reformer Pilates on and off for about 3 years. Having recently moved to the area, I was keen to find somewhere new to practice and found the perfect fit in Applied Pilates.
Susan and Teejay are both incredibly knowledgeable, and really tailor routines to suit each client. They push me to improve, keep a watchful eye on my execution and effectively provide a 1:1 experience for everyone! I can’t recommend them highly enough!
on 18 Jul 2017 by Susan P | Occupation: Food Development Consultant
I wanted to share my experiences of joining the Applied Pilates community. Two years ago, having struggled hugely to find a way to improve my health, fitness, lose weight and prepare myself for a hip replacement I joined Applied Pilates and started on a journey. Throughout the process both Teejay and Susan have encouraged me and helped me to conquer my fears. Teejay has kept me physically mobile through when I’ve been really suffering with pain and using his treatments have enabled me to walk and work when I was doubled up!
Applied Pilates is more than just a pilates centre, it is a fantastically supportive hub… I am now hooked!
I am now 8 weeks post my hip replacement and I’m back on the reformer enjoying the healthy banter…. 30 kilos lighter and enjoying a new found energy and vitality and being encouraged and supported back to fitness. I am absolutely convinced that my quick recovery had a significant bearing on my fitness as a result of my pilates which I managed to keep doing up until the week before my operation.
Thank you Teejay and Susan for having a really unique set up and for helping me to get to where I am today, I am truly grateful.
My former self back again!
on 12 Jul 2017 by Jayne | Occupation: Hairdresser
After a long 3 day labour 13 years ago my beautiful daughter was born but unfortunately my coccyx got so damaged that I could not sit for longer than 10 minutes at a time, the pain was awful, with damaged ligaments and nerves. I also had a prolapsed disc in my spine and was again in agony and could not do any of my normal activities for 3 months. So I started at Applied Pilates with Susan and Teejay after them both being highly recommended. My life has changed so much…..I can now sit without being in pain and my normal activities have all resumed without being in pain. After having steroid injections every year for 12 years into my coccyx and spine I’ve not had to have anymore and hopefully shall never need another ever again thanks to my weekly Pilates workout. A huge thank you to the lovely and very clever Susan and Teejay! My former self is back again! X
Long overdue praise!
on 3 Apr 2017 by Ana P | Occupation: Doctor
My praise for the team is long overdue. Susan and Teejay helped me get back to skiing after I snapped AC ligaments in both knees. And ever since I started attending their pilates classes my prolapsed disc has not bothered me. Thank you for enabling me to enjoy life as I have used to!
