I was looking for options to back surgery when I found Breathe Pilates and Kelly Milton. In 2003 I hurt my back and in 2005 I had neck surgery. I had gone through physical therapy for my neck and countless steroid shots for both my back and neck. My neck had not healed properly and my back has severe arthritis in it. I tried yoga, but could tell that it was not going to help my neck. I was trying non-impact aerobic exercises, but I needed to strengthen my core. After a year with Kelly, I feel better than I have in years. The stretching and exercises done on the reformer are just what I needed. I was so tight when I started and Kelly was so good to modify exercises to each one’s ability. I have gained so much core strength and look forward to getting stronger. The reformer puts no stress on my back so I always come out of a class feeling great. Kelly will put you through your paces, but will never give you anything she thinks you can’t handle.
