Pilates Achieves Real Results For Knee Injury

I am a 58 year old male who has always enjoyed outdoor activities. Having competed in Triathlons since 2006, I stepped up in the 2012/13 Gatorade Series to be in the top 10 in my Age Group. I joined Tri-Alliance and started to get into some serious training in late 2013.

I feel stronger and more functional than I have in months – Shane D’Rozario

I am writing to you because my wife interrogated me last night about why I’m in a much better mood than I have been for some time.

The Answers:

  1. I’m not waking up with a base level of debilitating back and neck pain (with once to twice weekly headaches).
  2. I feel stronger and more functional than I have in months.
