So Cheryl, tell us why you got into Pilates and how it's helped you through your, through the last 20 years of your life?
I got into Pilates because I naturally liked to exercise and move and at the time I got into it I was sitting at a desk most of the day for my job and then I was struggling to find a time in my day where I could fit movement in and I thought what a great opportunity to be able to make movement something I get paid to do.
So that way I wasn't having to sit by the desk trying to squeeze in movement outside of this working all day long. I was able to actually start moving for a living and then I realized how great I felt and that continued to keep me doing it and it continued to spark the joy that I find when I get to share this with other people and give them the opportunity to feel as good as I do.
And you hit on something as far as feeling good but let me ask you one more question as far as your pain, I know you've had a lot of pain, back pain, some issues as a cheerleader and a gymnast as a child.
Tell me a little bit of how pilates has helped with your pain and how it could help someone else suffering from pain?
Well, I wouldn't say that you know, I live this completely pain-free life. Occasionally my back will bother me again and you know usually it's when I'm not staying active and not doing my regular stuff but if I stay, continue with my practice and I stay doing it regularly, I find that I can live at a capacity of doing anything I want to do. I mean I still run. I can jump into somebody else's class here and there and not worried about getting hurt and I'm as active as I was in my 20s.
