Are we really making a difference in the lives of our clients? They come to us week after week but do they really look different, feel different? Pilates is not about doing a set of exercises and sending our clients home. It’s about showing our clients how the Pilates exercises should be incorporated into their lives to make the changes that will stay with them throughout their lives. I just came from a Pickleball tournament where so many have terrible back pain. They say they exercise and stretch but they are still bent over, have terrible posture and never look different. If stretching and exercise worked people would look and feel different. This is our real profession showing why Pilates exercises are different and important and change lives. In Joe’s book he looked out over a sea of people all hunched over and looking weak. He wanted to make changes in their lives and so should we. Don’t fall into the trap of doing a workout without relating the exercises and results to our clients daily lives. Take before and after pictures of them. We used to do that years ago. Do it now, show them how they can look better, feel better and be better because of the time they are putting in with us the Pilates Professional.
