-Communications Director at Far Niente Winery
Pilates has made such a difference in my life, and I have Pilates Napa Valley to thank. I have mild to moderate scoliosis and a couple of slipped discs, and with long hours in front of a computer, I was beginning to experience increasing, sometimes excruciating, back pain. I joined Pilates Napa Valley in August 2009, and within two months I lost 2.5 lbs of fat and gained the same amount in muscle. And as if I weren’t already tall enough, I now measure a solid 5’11”—a ¾” gain. I also enjoy a significant reduction in back pain. I consider Pilates a very real part of my retirement plan! Strengthening my core now, in my early 30s, gives me the best chance at maintaining health and mobility as I age. A huge thank you to Pilates Napa Valley for helping me invest in my future!
