One of the biggest obstacles on the road to fitness and health is the lack of time. The life is always busy and sometimes it will throw very unexpected curveballs.
Rebecca Beckler was a Pilates and fitness teacher. Several years ago her daughter was diagnosed with leukemia and Rebecca had to find creative ways to stay in shape to help her daughter fight for health. “I needed a way to keep up with my Pilates and overall fitness level while taking care of my daughter. This tragedy forced me to find a more creative way to stay on top of my Pilates routine.”
If you can take one look at Rebecca you can never tell that she was struggling to find time for exercise. In a situation when most people would give up and totally abandon their Pilates/fitness routine Rebecca became stronger and came up with a new way to train – the Pilates Suspension Method.
“After training my clients on the suspension trainer for just a month, with five- to 10-minute intervals interspersed in our regular Pilates routine, I noticed my clients getting much stronger and being able to perform traditional Pilates exercises much more fluidly,” she says.
Please jump into the conversation with us as we talk about health, staying fit despite any obstacles, and the benefits of adding suspension training to your personal Pilates practice or teaching.
