Pilates is a good fitness investment. It is adaptable to any level of fitness—from high performance athlete to committed couch potato. It gets results. And, it does not require a huge time commitment.
Ask yourself these questions: What do I hope to do when I am retired? Will it be enjoyable—or even possible—with the body I have now? If the answer is no, you are the only who can take steps to change your future by finding a path to strength and pain free function.
When we began working together, one of my clients had stopped playing the viola because it caused debilitating pain. Another had given up golf--a sport she loves--due to sciatica. For both these women life was not as sweet without these pleasurable pursuits. Over time, with better mechanics, strength, and flexibility, both of these clients are playing again--without pain.
It doesn’t have to be Pilates. There are other ways to get and stay fit. But there is no time to lose. Like most financial investments, the sooner you begin investing in your health and fitness the better.
