"Physical Fitness is the first requisite of happiness."  
-Joseph H. Pilates

Mim Rieders with June Hines
Family of the Month
How long have you been studying Pilates?   
Mim Rieders:   I took my first Pilates mat class with June at a dance studio in 2002. My body found something important.
Caroline Kelch:  
Since 2005. 
Susan Koch: 11 years.
Julie Satriano:   6 years. 
Maria Rieders Since 2010

What brought you to Pilates?  
In 2002 I became SCUBA certified and wanted to get stronger to walk and haul gear.
My mom, Mim, tried and loved it.  She encouraged me to try it and I really liked it too. 
After gentle prodding from my sister Mim, I tried it.  I thought because my weight stayed steady and I felt fine that I was in great shape...it didn't take long to realize how wrong I was.  
Julie :  Knowing I had trouble with my neck and back, Mim encouraged me to try it. It has made a world of difference.
Maria :  My sister-in-law, Mim, had been telling me about its benefits for years and encouraged me to try it.  

How has Pilates helped you?
Clockwise from top: Caroline Kelch w/Sharon Michels, Susan Koch, Julie Satriano, Maria Rieders
Pilates has challenged me and it never gets boring.  It has helped me heal through several injuries and even helps if I come in for a workout feeling under the weather.  I believe it keeps my immune system functioning.  I have corrected bad habits like locking knees, hunching shoulders, and leading with my chin.  My posture and energy are much improved.  Lastly, I appreciate the mental aspect of studying Pilates, freeing my mind of all else and working to be the best I can be in a session.  I always have a bounce in my step when I walk out of the studio after my 2 session/week.  I love working with all the teachers at JHPilates and even the guest teachers that have visited over the years.
Caroline:  Pilates has, over the years, helped me strengthen my back, which used to cause me so much pain.  It's also helped my posture improve greatly.  I'm also very grateful that I can still do Pilates while in my 2nd pregnancy!  I believe it has truly helped alleviate a lot of the "blessing" of pain that pregnancy brings.  I plan to continue post pregnancy as well!

Now I see the virtue of strengthening and challenging my body, continuous improvement in my flexibility, strength and body awareness.  I leave every workout better physically and mentally and can't believe what a great system Joe Pilates created.  There is continuous growth and I feel for the rest of my life I'll have improvement to come.  Thank you all!

Julie:   It has made a world of difference in my overall strength, flexibility and ability.  It's also the only exercise program that I've stayed with, and actually look forward to doing!  I believe it is something that I'll be able to continue with as I age, and always my concerns about increasing disabilities as I grow older.
Maria:   Starting Pilates, I had been active with yoga, gym workouts, and lots of walking, but had become frustrated with increasing pain due to arthritis in my hip.  Physical therapy was of moderate help, but after practicing Pilates for awhile, I noticed distinctive improvements - much less pain in my legs, less discomfort when sitting for a long time, no more pain at night.  the exercises literally straightened me out due to the guidance of the springs in the apparatuses, keeping muscles and limbs aligned in ways that do not always come naturally to my body.  Adding to that the careful coaching of well trained instructors (shout out to Barb Conforti) results in a high quality.
