I wanted to post a thank you review on QVC but I think perhaps because I mentioned medical information, they did not post it. So please let me just tell you directly how very much my Aeropilates machine (from QVC) has changed my life. I am 53 with scoliosis, and had it so severely even after years of a Milwaukee brace that it was recommended that I have a spinal fusion in my 20s, which I did. That was a tremendous help (so much so, that I grew two inches on the operating table), but now and then, especially in cold weather or when I haven’t gotten enough rest (that happens!), and especially as my bones are getting older, I began to have back pain.
I did physical therapy again and got the same old exercises -- which helped a bit, but did not seem to help my overall strength. I belonged to a gym for 15 years, but believe me, aerobics classes and Nautilus machines were not what I needed. Then I discovered you and Pilates on QVC and I feel like a different person now -- there is no other way to say it. I am pain free as long as I use that AeroPilates every day and if I've been sitting too much and get a bit sore, I simply go home; work out on it, and within ten minutes I am out of pain.
I sent a second machine to my parents in another state because I don’t want to be away from AeroPilates for the month or so each year that I visit. Several of my friends have started Pilates because they have seen what it has done for me -- I’m not sure they understand the "scoliosis part", but they keep telling me how graceful I am, that I move like a dancer, etc. This is like icing on the cake for someone who limped a lot as a teenager and onward. I am so very, very grateful to you and love watching you on QVC -- I always learn something new and you are such a kind and gorgeous inspiration.
