SUCCESS STORY : JEN SCHEER (and Parker, too)

Taylor Carter

After three and a half years, not only did PPW totally transform my body and increase my strength in a crazy way.... but it means so much that you all took me safely through my entire pregnancy (all the way up to my last class at 39.5 weeks - haha!) I felt so strong and healthy and sometimes a great pilates class was the only thing that made me feel better. And now, four months after having Parker, I owe so much of my bounce back to you all! Okay, and Parker gets some credit for helping me in the Mommy & Me classes :)

THANK YOU to all the teachers that really have helped me in so many ways and through some major changes in my life! PPW love to.... Skipp, Ellie, Stephanie, Sara D, Clarissa, Brittany, Kim, and so many others from the past!

Thanks for everything and keep kicking butt!
xxo, Jen Scheer

SUCCESS STORY : EILEEN ANDROFF

Taylor Carter

I have been around fitness nearly 30 years as an instructor and student. A few years ago I had a personal set-back with the passing of both my parents that took me away from the fitness life that was so much a part of my life. A very sad and difficult few years in my life followed only to be bombarded with the lost of my identity, my teaching, and my students. Last fall I decided that I wanted to get back in shape and tried numerous classes and clubs, but it was never quite right. Something was missing.

This past Christmas I was gifted with a monthly membership to PPW and little did I know at that time, this would be a life changing month for my family and me. From the first class to the class I took this morning I feel that I’m in a special place with special people. I’m HOME again and am so grateful to you all.

Thank you!

Success Story : Tony Bellisimo

Taylor Carter

My name is Tony Bellisimo I am a 48 year old husband and a father of two boys. I have been an athlete my entire life, playing two different sports at a very high level – baseball and boxing. I can not remember a time in my life that I was not training or preparing to compete.

Both sports required explosive movements, so as a result, my training regiment was to one: lift weights, and two: practice consistent repetition of explosive movements.

About two years ago, my lower back finally could not take anymore explosive movements. I have had six surgeries due to sports injuries but this was my first back issue. I can take a tremendous amount of pain. However, I have never experience the persistent, relentless pain from a lower back injury. I was unable to function and lay on the floor of my living room for six months. 

After what amounted to two years of no exercise and at my wife's insistence, I decided to try Pilates. The results were not immediate.  It was not a one or two class thing and then I was cured. However, it was not an extended period of time either. It took about two months of consistent (5 times per week) effort. I am now really strong, especially my core.

The instructors are incredible. They encourage, motivate and challenge the class. They are also very knowledgeable as it relates to proper form and safety for those students who do have injuries. I also really like the way the instructors tell the class what muscles to focus on when doing particular exercises. I find that it really helps me to engage the proper muscles to create greater core stability. I also like the reminders from the instructors in regard to breathing, sounds simple right breathing... But I have found that I am able to work harder when I follow the breathing instruction.

The first day I could barely make it through the class. In all fairness I still have days where I can barely make it through the class but I am pain free. I sleep better and I am getting a six pack. I wish I did Pilates when I was competing because I have also noticed that my balance is the best it has ever been.
