“Better Bodies Pilates is hands down the best thing you could do for your body.  This is the first time in a very long time I’ve found myself committed to and looking forward to working out.  Kathy is amazing.  She is inspiring and adapts the classes to everyone’s abilities.  The people in the classes are motivating, unpretentious and fun, a testament to Kathy’s enthusiasm.  At 55+ years old, I’m stronger, have more energy and longer, leaner muscle tone.  I simply have a Better Body!”

“I can’t say enough good things about Kathy Friesen and Better Bodies Pilates.  I have had significant low back pain for about 15 years and nothing seemed to alleviate the pain.  Kathy introduced me to the Pilates Reformer in August of 2014. Initially, my back hurt after a workout.  But, as my abs became stronger, my back pain decreased significantly.  I am stronger, more toned, and more balanced than I have been for 15 years!  Kathy tunes into each one of her student’s issues and modifies exercises as necessary.  Even in a group class, Kathy gives everybody individual attention.  It’s like working with a personal trainer!  My body truly has been transformed by Pilates.  Thanks Kathy!”

“Better Bodies delivers just that and more.  After each Pilates session, I feel like I have given my whole body a massage from the inside out.  I leave breathing deeper, with better posture and standing taller.  Best of all, my body truly is getting better!  Kathy is awesome.  I am addicted.”

“I was going through rounds of physical therapy for an injury that left lingering weakness and stiffness in my neck and shoulder.  I seemed to have hit a plateau where things just weren’t getting any better.  After talking with my physical therapist, I decided to give Pilates a try.  During my one-on-one introductory sessions with Kathy, we went over my prescribed exercise regime.  Kathy was able to correct subtle flaws in how I was exercising and focus my efforts on the precise muscles needing strengthening.  As a result, things are improving!  Adding Pilates to my rehabilitation program was definitely the right choice.”

“I like Pilates because it helps diminish various aches and pains that I have had for years. Pilates strengthens all of the body and ,in particular, the core. For me, having a stronger core, prevents me from moving wrong and pulling muscles and creating new pain. In addition, I have found that Pilates practice helps with my posture. I tend to be a slumper and have a tendency to raise my shoulders into my neck. Slowly, with practice in Pilates, I am finding myself working on posture and alignment every day, even outside of class. Kathy Friesen, instructor at Better Bodies Pilates is a great teacher with much patience and knowledge. I love Kathy’s classes on the reformer and the mat.”
