Balance, Strength & Flexibility

Testimonials

Before commencing Pilates training I was aware of it and its benefits to members of my family. I commenced after a spinal operation which had involved some disability to my left leg. This disability has now been overcome and I attribute this recovery to my post operation Pilates program at Stable Base.

Experience really counts in Pilates and your blend of experience and knowledge gained from this industry and other related industries give you an edge which is hard to beat.

Regular Pilates classes have allowed me to improve on my core stability. I now have greater awareness of which muscles should be turned on and when. I have noticed a gradual improvement in my posture when cycling and far greater stability when pushing the pedals hard. This has allowed for greater power output and therefore faster riding!

Stable Base and Greg have improved my ability to control my lower back pain. The classes are instructive and enjoyable whilst being specific for individual needs.

Before I started Pilates I was a regular user of anti-inflammatory medication for lower back pain. This is now a rare occurrence. The knowledge, attention to detail and support of the staff at Stable Base makes each session a pleasure and I am aware of continual improvement in strength and stability over the years I have been using Pilates.

Stable Base Pilates individually tailored workouts have completely transformed my body shape, posture and core strength in only a year of once-a-week sessions. I am amazed at how effectively Greg has planned the Pilates program details, always taking into account my week’s activities and body condition. Both my husband and I wish I had discovered Stable Base many years ago.

I have been doing Pilates with Greg for nearly eight years and began Personal Training two years ago. The reason I started Pilates was lower back pain – this is now a thing of the past. Needing to loose weight I began PT and a change in diet, and I have lost 18kg. My doctor is very pleased with my B.P. and cholesterol etc. And I feel so good that I am confident enough to ski with my grandson this year. The first time in 16 years.

Dear Greg, It’s been well over a year since I did a 10 session course with you so might no remember me. I just wanted to express my gratitude for the benefits I have since reaped for my running. I no longer have ‘redundant gluts’ as you so expertly put it, and since correcting my running style I have run most of this year not only injury free, but doing record times. I’m 42 now and I never thought I’d be able to break 40 minutes for the 10km but I’m getting within seconds of doing this. The last time I was able to get anywhere near that time was 10 years ago! There is no doubt in my mind that the principles you emphasise have been largely responsible (and maybe the 2XUs!). If you ever need to see a neurologist, (hopefully you won’t) it’ll be no charge! All the best and thanks again!
