Having had severe problems with my back last October and having been to massage treatment with no success and having been to the doctor I was advised to try pilates. Someone gave me Therese's number and I joined the class in Aughrim.
I was very apprehensive at first considering how weak my back was and doubted that I would get through the exercises. My fears were unfounded. Therese made me welcome and I found the class both relaxing and beneficial. I got through it remarkably well and couldn't wait for the next session.
In a matter of a few weeks I noticed my back getting stronger and my overall strength improving especially in the legs and found it easier to climb hills. I improved my posture to the point that walking tall became natural.
And to cap it all, after 6 months of pilates I ran a mountain race of 11km and won my class in over 60s.
In short, pilates has given me a new lease of life and I want to thank Therese for her patience and gentle direction. I look forward to many more workouts!
Just a quick word of thanks for last winters Pilates classes, everyone was really impressed by the results in their core strength and flexibility. Regardless of either their sport (swimming , running or cycling) everyone benefited greatly from them.
Really looking forward to starting back at them again as soon as the evenings close in.

Like a lot of people I came to Pilates because of a sore back. I have been going to Therese's classes since she started in my area and instantly knew I'd found the exercise for me. I love it! I hate missing a class and only do when it's unavoidable.
Over the past 18 months I've noticed my body getting stronger and leaner and my back problems are a thing of the past.
Therese is a natural teacher so I feel confident I am doing the exercises correctly and practise regularly at home. I still love my weekly class as Therese changes and advances the moves all the time so the routine never gets boring and continually challenges us to improve. I cannot recommend TM Pilates highly enough!
