"I owe a big THANK YOU to you and your staff!!! When I started taking classes at Focus Pilates I had been suffering a back injury for more than a year and felt like I would never be normal again. It didn’t take long to start feeling the results and I was able to slowly get back into playing softball. Now it’s just been over a year and for the last several months I have been able to do whatever I want to do. I am able to play softball without wearing a back brace, I can jog for over an hour without stopping and I can ten pin bowl – something which I was told I would never be able to do again. I feel totally normal again – only better. I couldn’t have done it without you and your team. THANKS SO MUCH!"

“Having started Pilates at 58 years young I wish I had been doing it when I was playing contact sport and very young! I find the sessions physically helpful andwonderfully relaxing, even if there is some exertion (pain) at times. All 3 instructors are great -so professional, supportive and motivating.”

"Spinal deformities and back pain, to Pilates as I have found that is quite helpful for them. From my observations over 35 years, especially using other exercise programs, I have found that the staff of Focus Pilates quite helpful in the following patients:
-Young patients with spinal deformities as in scoliosis or kyphosis.
-Post operative management following spinal operations.
-Patients with chronic lower back pain and stiffness.
-Patients with fibro myalgia.
Quite a lot of my patients find it difficult to maintain home exercise programs and thanks to Focus Pilates, I believe that we should encourage people to exercise more frequently."

“I recommended Pilates to a patient who had major disk problems and was unable to play any sport. After three months of Pilates he returned to my clinic looking great. He had lost 12kg and was back playing golf and regaining his lifestyle.”

“I like to do Pilates because it makes me feel like I can do anything and Pilates helps my dancing and tummy muscles.”

“I acquired a brain injury in 2003 and since that time have been involved in a lot of rehabilitation involving Pilates. Pilates has improved my core strength, stability and balance and working on many of my muscles that had become very tight. NOW I’m able to walk in a straight line without dragging my leg. Thank you to all the staff at Focus Pilates for their help, assistance and all their positive feedback to improve my weaknesses."
