I’ve been a runner for years and it’s always kept me in shape. Two years after having my son I was diagnosed with Grave’s disease – which took a huge toll on my body – I lost weight, then gained weight, lost muscle mass, looked and felt bloated, and was exhausted all of the time. Running didn’t seem to produce the results it had before the diagnosis. In fact, I had very little energy to do much of anything. A friend suggested I try pilates – that’s when I discovered the Breathe Pilates Studio. I’ve worked Kelly for over a year – I’m stronger, more fit, have more muscle tone and muscle mass, my weight is consistent and exactly where I want it to be, I am able to run more and enjoy a cardio workout again. Finally, I have the energy I need to be the mother I want to be.
