Brett has been doing Pilates for the past 17 years. She credits Jacqueline and The Pilates Center with keeping her engaged all these years: “I love that Jacqueline mixes it up every time. It feels new each time, so I don’t get bored.”
Now in the seventh decade of her life, sticking with a consistent routine each week has helped Brett manage the physical changes that accompany aging. She consistently practices Pilates twice a week. “Pilates really makes a difference, especially as you get older” she says, “It helps me with balance, helps me feel more sure on my feet, and it does wonders for my back.” She also extols the mental benefits that come from a consistent Pilates practice: “Pilates can really help you mentally,” she says, “It really gets you going, gives you energy. And the way Jacqueline leads us- she’s so calm and capable.”
Brett is a true testament to the physical and mental benefits of Pilates at any age, and she loves that it can be modified to meet the needs of all different ages, body types, and fitness levels. “Jacqueline doesn’t slack on us because we’re older. She makes it really exciting and challenging.”
All of this keeps Brett coming back week after week to The Pilates Center. “When I don’t do it, I really miss it,” she says.
