Saved my bacon!
on 27 Nov 2014 by Lisa Martland | Occupation: Editor
Just over a year ago I injured my back while on holiday, the pain was so agonising and debilitating that I couldn’t walk. On my return the GP mis-diagnosed my condition, and it was Teejay and Susan at Applied Pilates that saved my bacon by advising I had a scan and then received the appropriate treatment. As a result, I discovered I had a massive prolapse disc and severe sciatica. It has taken me many months to get back to normal but thanks to the special individual care of Applied Pilates, I am functioning very well and I also now understand how to look after myself when I cannot make my regular sessions at the studio. I cannot thank them enough.
Brilliant for my back!
on 26 Nov 2014 by Abby | Occupation: Management Consultant
After suffering from sciatic pain for several months and failing to resolve it through other routes (chiropractor, bowen technique etc) I found out about Teejay’s classes on the internet and thought I’d give it a try. I am so glad I did. Through the classes my overall fitness and strength has really improved, but in particular my core strength and alignment have got much better and it has really helped with alleviating my back issues. I would thoroughly recommend a consultation with Teejay and joining his classes if you have any back issues or just want to improve your strength and fitness.
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! 🙂
