I inquired about Marshall Eklund a year into recovery from a surgery that involved removing a tumor from my neck. I spent over a year trying to relieve my pain through acupuncture, physical therapy and massage. Although all these efforts played their own part in the recovery process, my neck was still very weak and I suffered moderate to extreme pain daily. I knew that the only way I could live a normal, pain free life was if I started building my strength from the core up so I looked into pilates as an option.
From the day I walked into The Marshall Eklund studio until now (9 months later) I have had the most outstanding experience as far as exercise regime, staff dedication, knowledge and motivation. I can honestly say that pilates and the staff at Marshall Eklund have changed my life! I am so much stronger and able to not only do daily things that I used to do, but my strength and physical health is way beyond what I thought my post surgery body would ever be able to achieve. As an added bonus, I have toned all parts of my body, lost body fat and I’m in better physical shape then I was all the years I played sports. Needless to say, my self esteem and spirt has improved greatly.
But enough about me 🙂 I LOVE the staff and owe so much of my progress to all of them! They are very educated, caring and positive people that have made my exercise experience far surpass anything I have attempted before. Still today, in every class i take, whether it’s pilates, mix-mod or fit camp, they ask me how my neck is and if anything is too difficult for me.
I honestly feel very grateful to have found Marshall Eklund and all of his staff because they have contributed to a stronger, better me!
Once again, thanks so much everyone!
