my experience with Ishbel and Hannah at Pil-oga-robic since march 2010 has been nothing but phenominal. they truly make their classes fun, butt kickin' (and more, if you choose) and great for conditioning, sculpting, and keeping me lean and limber.
i started Pil-oga-robic with slight limitations in my shoulder (partial tear in rotator cuff) and low back (herniated disc). they've done a great job in getting me into the shape and condition i've always wanted without aggrevating either of my sore spots. they always give options/alternatives in the classes that allows me to push myself as hard as i want (sometimes more then they want) yet i always wake up the next day without any additional pain to my shoulder or back?
but the same can't be said for my muscles, as after each class some muscle group which i don't regularly use during my tennis matches/lessons, in my own workout with weights, or sitting in front of a computer all day, has been worked hard! a two+ hour tennis match is no longer a concern as i trust that my workouts with Hannah and Ishbel will get me through any three-tiebreaker sets, no problem.
the time spent in each class which includes pilates, yoga, cardio and strength training (especially in the circuit classes) combined or seperately gives my entire body a fantastic workout and a great stretch. outdoor classes during the summer includes running stairs up in the west hills or into forest park with emphasis in proper running technique, or jumping-skipping-hopping at the park is another part of their well-rounded workout which i love.
they have so much more to offer at their studio, that i?
love it! love them! love how they make me feel!
