Marshall Eklund Pilates and Fitness Studio has been a significant part of my life for the past six years. I started with this studio after being in constant pain for six months from an injury and finally seeking advice from an orthopedic surgeon about how to resolve my sciatic nerve issue. The surgeon stated rather than invasive surgery, to do core strengthening via Pilates, as his experience was it worked well on the injury I had and the biomechanical deficiency I was born with. This was my preferred choice and I chose this studio because of the availability of master trainers with rehabilitation experience.

Within 5 private sessions at this studio, the pain was notably receding and within 4 months of biweekly sessions, the pain was completely resolved. I immediately incorporated the Pilates principles into as much of my daily activity as possible and after a year, I moved from private to semi-private sessions. The training has continued being so valuable to my health, I added a third session per week to my schedule and I have chosen to continue learning, doing and advocating this type of training ever since.

I admire and respect Marshall and the trainers at this studio. They are all consummate professionals; tailoring the sessions to the individual clients; always keeping it positive, interesting and providing a range variety of training programs to chose from. I am delighted to also participate in the fitness sessions as these have contributed to the dramatic improvement in my body’s endurance and vigor. I believe being a client and student at Marshall’s studio has also resulted in having a more intelligent and healthy body. In addition to the personal improvements, I enjoy the other people at the studio, the continual learning and the camaraderie during challenging sessions. I truly appreciate the value of the programs at this studio and consider the investment worth much more.*
