I struggled on for a year and saddly was unable to continue at my job so I had to resign. I didn't know what to do, I was at home and came across the shopping channel QVC and saw Marjolein showing the positive benefits Areo Pilates can make to your life. I watched a few shows to really understand how this could help. In Feb of this year I decided to buy a machine from QVC as it was on easy payments and my family agreed to help with the cost of it.
I have been using the machine for 2 months and I can honestly say I love it. I am able to exercise in the comfort of my own home, go at a slow pace that suits me, I am gaining strength in my damaged arm. I asked my pyshio team to visit to look it over and they said it was fantastic and worth the investment as it would help me overcome my injuries.
Each day when I do my 20 mins I can feel my body gaining strength and not only that I feel my mental health is changing, I was very depressed and could not shake it. Now when I feel down, I get on my pilates machine and do the cardio for 15 mins listening to Vaughan Willaims 'The Lark Ascending' it inspires me and relaxes me at the same time.
So, thank you for promoting the benefits of the aero pilates machine in the UK and hearing Marjolein talk with passion about the benefits also makes me want to exercise daily.
Many thanks, Kath Lindsay
