Exercise I actually enjoy!
on 30 Oct 2014 by Fiona | Occupation: Manager
I first went along to Pilates after becoming bored with the gym and picking up injuries from not using the equipment properly. In contrast, I look forward to every pilates session and don’t want to miss any. Teejay and Susan are very attentive and ensure I have a thorough and balanced workout each time.
Osteoarthritic Hip Not A Back Problem!
on 29 Oct 2014 by Tess | Occupation: Retired
I am an energetic 80 year old who had back surgery 3 years ago. After six months I had serious pain in my leg, struggled to walk more than 100 yards at a time. I was diagnosed with nerve damage. When I saw Teejay he immediately assessed a hip problem. I am about to have surgery and cannot thank him enough for spotting a problem all the medics had overlooked. I soon look forward to getting back to Pilates and also all the many activities that I haven’t been able to do for 5 years.
Teejay saved my squash career
on 24 Sep 2014 by Adam Auckland | Occupation: Professional Squash Player
I am 21, world ranked professional squash player. I’ve been playing squash ever since I was 10 and had many injuries. One injury wouldn’t go away which was my back. I went to see endless physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors and they couldn’t find out what the problem was. 4 years ago I was considering ending my career but then I found Teejay at Applied Pilates. Ever since then I have been working with Teejay and I’ve never met anyone who has had such an understanding in how my body works and reacts to different exercises and movements within my sport. He was able to identify what the problem was straight away, how it was caused and how to prevent the problem reoccurring. Teejay is the main reason I am still playing today.
Back on the bike
on 15 Sep 2014 by Gavin | Occupation: Retail Manager
I have always suffered from lower back pain and started cycling seriously over 7 years ago. I had issues with sciatica over the last couple of years and then found out a few months ago that I had a prolapsed disc. After an awkward fall in the spring, I ended up being pretty much immobilised. After a fairly dramatic scan result, 2 of my doctors told me that I needed an operation. Fortunately I was recommended to see TeeJay, who told me he was confident he could get me back walking and eventually cycling. Within 6 weeks I was back walking and I have now a better posture than I have had for a long time. I am now confident that I will be able to be active for many years to come as I keep on my weekly Pilates routine. I would recommend anyone with back issues to seek Teejay’s help; I am already planning next season’s racing calendar.
Back and Neck Pain
on 11 Sep 2014 by Hayley Greenfield | Occupation: Zumba Instructor/Nail Tech
Teejay has been helping me since September. I am a Zumba instructor and nail technician so as you can imagine I’m abusing my back and neck on a daily basis. I’ve had injections in my neck for a slipped disk and was seeing a Physio on a regular basis. I’ve been doing Pilates for 9 months now and can honestly say that Teejay has helped me big time! I haven’t needed to see my Physio for a very long time and really feel that the Pilates has changed my life and well being! Thank you Teejay for all your help! You’re stuck with me on a long term basis!!
Customer of Applied Pilates
on 29 Jul 2014 by Brian | Occupation: Company Director
I have been attending Applied Pilates for over three years. TJ Sogunro is the owner and instructor and is an excellent teacher, adding new equipment to enhance the range of exercises and varying them to suit the needs of his customers. I began to attend Applied Pilates having had a major heart operation. There is no doubt that it has contributed significantly to my complete recovery. I recommend him and his company unreservedly.
Gone but not forgotten
on 8 Jun 2014 by Marion Hall | Occupation: Legal Secretary
I have been attending a weekly class for 7 months and it has been the best exercise ever. I would like to thank Susan and Teejay for the patient way they pass on their knowledge and expertise. I am moving to Surrey and will miss them. It has been a joy.
Remarkable improvements for headaches
on 7 Jun 2014 by James | Occupation: Marketing
After around 9 months of almost daily headaches caused by neck pain, I found this site and read the reviews, which encouraged me to give applied pilates a go. It’s been life changing as I’ve seen significant reductions in the occurrence and severity of headaches after only a few months, so I wanted to leave a review to recommend to anyone suffering similar problems to give it a try! The classes have a great atmosphere and it feels great to be getting back to fitness after a long time out with this injury. I tried lots of different treatments before this, including chiropractors and massages, but none made such a difference. Thanks Teejay – your help has been greatly appreciated! 🙂
on 27 May 2014 by Clare Posner | Occupation: Housewife/Mother
I have been suffering back pain for the last 3 months and the osteopath who I was seeing 3 times a week was not helping. Within 2 sessions with Teejay I could see a remarkable difference! I was very nervous about starting Applied Pilates I had never done it before and found it very daunting looking at all these strange machines but as soon as I walked into the studio Teejay put me at ease – he was calm and reassuring, knowing my limits not to cause more pain but pushing me to see results. Teejay explained everything clearly and had lots of patience with a true novice! I would definitely recommend the Applied Pilates Studio it has made a real difference to my everyday life by not being in constant pain, being able to get a nights sleep, getting on the floor to play with my kids, working on my core muscles and posture. Thank you Teejay!
on 4 May 2014 by Matt | Occupation: Teacher
I had suffered from a chronic pain condition for a long time which had knocked my confidence, and gradually sapped my strength. My bodyweight was right down and I was having trouble doing just than normal things everyday without pain. I started seeing Teejay last July, and within just a few months my pain threshold and relative strength grew hugely. I’m much more confident in so many areas now, thanks to regular sessions with activities built around my needs, and sound advice on all kinds of aspects of my fitness. Many thanks Teejay 🙂
