I’ve said it before and it never ceases to reign true: My clients inspire me.
At the beginning of June a lovely woman who I will call Ms. Motivation was referred to me by a fellow yoga teacher. Ms. Motivation was getting married mid august and had heard from my fellow yogi, that Pilates can kick your butt and give you a hot bod among many other things. So Ms. Motivation started seeing me three, sometimes four times a week as well as continuing her yoga practice 3 days a week. Planning a wedding, working full time and working out 6-7 days a week is no small feat. It could have been really easy for Ms. M to get lost in the details and the hustle and bustle of it all, but she stuck to it. Amidst all the busy-ness (did I mention her and fiancee were looking for a house too?) she took at least an hour out of her day, every day to move and to be in her body and take time for HER. The most amazing thing tho is that she did this all without ever complaining. Ms. M always had a warm energy, a smile on her face and a willingness to to work. What i saw was dedication and determination and a woman connecting to her body and on a deep level and taking a real interest in its mechanics. Also I saw a complete aesthetic transformation which i’ve displayed below. Girl was hot to begin with but she got tight, taught and toned. She lost inches, her arms got super sculpted, her butt lifted and her posture improved. Ms. M originally signed up for 20 sessions which we completed before her wedding but she continues now to see me three times a week. She has seen, and felt the benefits of pilates and is hooked.
And something else happened, she completely inspired me. My practice had really fallen by the way side. I can tell you all the reasons- there are always reasons- but that doesn’t matter. Seeing Ms. M’s dedication I committed to my own practice again and it feels awesome. I am clear, focused and strong- up for any challenge.
Thank you Ms. Motivation for bringing light, laughter and movement into my life.
