Thriving with us!

I originally came to Eat Play Thrive looking for a more active Pilates, one that would increase my heart rate. Since coming I have increased my strength – which as a carer for my husband is extremely noticable, I’ve also improved my flexibility and general fitness. It’s great, I love it! I would recommend all people of all ages give it a go.

When I was 28 years old, I was in a bad car accident. I was in a wheelchair having broken both my legs, my hip and pelvis! Since doing Pilates I have stopped taking ALL my pain killers, I can comfortably sleep on my tummy, I can touch my toes, even my digestion has improved and I can even run. I am so happy I found Pilates at Eat Play Thrive

I’ve been with Eat Play Thrive for over 10 years now – first visiting Joe for chiropractic and then getting into the pilates session with Vicky. I’ve also utilised the nutrition services and now am undertaking Pilates Bootcamp sessions. I love it because they live what they do – I have come to believe through them that every session I undertake is an investment in both my future health and my current well-being. Its also a lot of fun.

Early Saturday mornings at @eat_play_thrive before the 8am rush. 10x reps of each exercise on a 2 minute cycle. x10 rounds. Forget about the pull-ups and push-ups... that's lifting dead weight that's not all that functional. Jumping on the other hand is an essential element of human movement. It serves to strengthen our bones, creates more elasticity in our muscles and tendons, and conditions the cardiovascular system. Unfortunately our "modern lifestyles" promote way too much sitting and insufficient basic movement (including jumping) leading to a myriad of chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Next time you're faced with a curb to the footpath, jump up on it. Flight of stairs... hop from left to right foot. Include more explosive jumping movements in your day - unleash your "forgotten" inner child.

A little bit of perspective…
