“Beth’s brand of Pilates has impacted the way I stand, sit, walk, exercise, and even sleep! With a new awareness of my core strength I’ve been able to increase my flexibility and expand my strength training. I even breathe differently and more effectively. When my husband saw the progress I was making he became envious of my new-found energy and excitement over exercising. This is probably the most convincing testimony I can provide–that my husband was so impressed he is now taking a Pilates class twice a week!

“I have been very happy with my Pilates therapy at North County Water and Sports Therapy Center. Before and after my back surgery, I did not think I would ever have flexibility and strength in my left leg or lower back ever again. However, with the Pilates training, I have awakened muscles in my abdomen that I have not felt since the birth of my daughter 4 years ago.
The Pilates training has increased my ‘body awareness’ so that now I am very conscious of my body’s position and alignment and I can self-correct my position and posture in order to optimize the stability of my lower back and decrease my risk of re-injury. The Pilates therapy has definitely been an integral factor in my recovery and has directed me to a path of improved and a more productive life. Thank you Beth!“

“Four years ago I was in a severe car accident and sustained multiple injuries. Those injuries included damage to my abdomen and lower back. My balance was off and my strength in my abdomen was almost non-existent. Since beginning the Pilate’s program at North County Water and Sports Therapy Center I have seen a remarkable increase in abdominal stability and lower back strength. I am able to stand straighter and walk without pain. It has been a wonderful alternative to basic weight training. It is easier on my back and I have been much more aware of my posture. The program offers a great deal of versatility which I enjoy in working out. In short, you don’t get bored!
I feel that Pilates had made my healing process go quicker and that the results have been quite remarkable. I also feel the quality of care demonstrated at North County Water and Sports Therapy Center is to be recognized. The quality of my life has definitely been improved!”
