In this month’s client spotlight, we speak with Puteri who has been doing Pilates with us since 2015! She recently started Gyrotonic sessions with Cynthia and we speak with her to find out more about her experience thus far.
Tell us a bit more about yourself!
Before Pilates, I used to do high intensity exercises and on top of having constant back pain, also often sustained injuries. My muscles were also very tight and I had frequent cramps. Working in operations in a community hospital and surrounded by physiotherapist and occupational therapist, I knew I needed to strengthen my core muscle to avoid persistent lower back pain.
I decided to give Pilates a try and ended up really liking it. My back pain improves when I do Pilates regularly and I do not get injured anymore!
What was your first impression of Gyrotonic?
I do both private and group Pilates classes. My private instructor told me to try out Gyrotonic, as I have always had tight muscle, and she thought that Gyrotonic may help me to improve my flexibility and mobility. My initial impression was that Gyro was easier than Pilates, which I have now realised is not true at all!
