I resist any kind of physical exercise, but knowing I had to do something, I tried Pilates. If it weren’t for Trish, not sure I’d have gotten over my resistance. Her commitment to Pilates is contagious, and she is a great trainer. She knows what she is doing and is able to anticipate what you can do. She finds the place that requires effort but is do-able – you want to deliver and there’s no wiggle room to give up. My balance and strength have significantly improved. When I had a frozen shoulder, Trish was able to get me further, faster than PT – though the combination was very effective, cutting recovery time in half. There are two kinds of people – give up and go up people. Trish takes the lead and ensures you never want to give up!
