Our Client Profile of the Week is on Diane Smith! Diane is a KÔR junkie to the max! Below is her Pilates journey...

"In 2001, I went through an early mid-life crisis, had quit my corporate job, wasn't sure what I was going to do and was seriously out of shape. There was a Linda Evan Fitness Center around the corner, so I decided to check them out. Next thing I knew, I was signed up for private tr...aining. That's when I met Rebecca. She would become not only my trainer, but my educator, my therapist and my friend.

When Rebecca opened KÔR in 2006, I will admit I wasn't sure about Pilates. But I soon became a convert. Pilates really helped me strengthen my core muscles in a way that traditional training had not. Where I noticed it the most was with riding. I've been riding now for 13 years and it takes a toll on your back. To stay balanced on a horse, you have to use your core muscles. I found the more I did Pilates, the easier it was to keep the correct posture while riding and at the same time protect my back. And as an added challenge, I have a 10 cm fibroid that presses on my low back and by strengthening my transverse abdominals, I've been able to avoid surgery and keep riding without severe back pain.

I am grateful to Rebecca and all of the gang at KÔR (I've trained with many) for keeping me in shape and active as I enter my 50's and for many years more."

Way to keep up the hard work Diane!! We love it See More

Client Profile this week is on Sheri Glover, shown here fixing up her school bus as a smiling strong Rosie the Riveter taking five Pilates mat classes a week along with a variety of running, bootcamps, paddle boarding, and an overall lifestyle change helped Sheri lose 75 pounds over the course of a year. And she's kept it off for more than a year! "I had a neck injury and the physical therapist e...ncouraged me to try Pilates to strengthen up my upper back. I was running for cardio so Pilates was perfect. Besides I love to lay down and exercise! I love KÔR Pilates and all the friends I have made here." Sheri, mother of three and soon-to-be grandma of three, turns 50 on Monday! Happy birthday and way to go Sheri!
