After hip replacement surgery in 2000 which left me with the condition of foot drop, I started Pilates at a studio in Pasadena. This helped me at first, but after three years I became disillusioned because I was not making any progress in my core strength and balance.
The very beginning of 2004, I was absolutely thrilled when I found Pilates Mertro on Glendale Blvd., right here in Atwater Village where I live. Well, that was the beginning of
my progress in core strength, improved posture, improved body balance and gait. It opened a new world for me.
I am presently taking private lessons from Phithsamay who is a phenomenal instructor.
I cannot emphasize enough how professional and well trained are the instructors at Pilates Metro. Also, very importantly, everyone here is very supportive and very friendly, which was not the case at the place I went to in Pasadena.
Pilates Metro is a very caring place and I recommend it to older ladies like myself. We seniors must remember that when people get old they are more inclined to fall. Pilates helps us maintain core strength from which all our body movements eminate and trains us to be more aware of our bodies.
Pros: Professional and caring
Cons: none at all
