#41 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Sherrie

February 21, 2022

🎧 In this episode, Sherrie talks a lot about the benefits of the Pilates method and how she helps people of all ages with different physical conditions to feel good physically and about themselves.

 

Being 63 years old, and having an amazing body shaped by years of practicing and teaching Pilates, Sherrie is passionate about the Pilates industry and the method itself.

 

Sherrie says that after 45, women have all that wonderful perimenopause and menopause period, and not only coping with weight fluctuation, but also having issues around osteopenia and osteoporosis, the thinning of the bones. They might find that their joints aren't coping as well with certain types of strength training like heavy lifting and squatting, etc. But Pilates and particularly the equipment that was invented for Pilates helps them to work their body through, and their joints are protected. They go out feeling great instead of feeling smashed.
