My Pilates Journey - Luci
"I love coming to APM because I get to escape the troubles of daily life by concentrating on my body and interacting with friendly positive instuctors!"
This month we chat to Luci who has been a dedicated APM Pilates client taking 2-3 sessions per week for over a year. It has been so great to see the strength, flexibility and tone she has achieved in her body throughout this time. It has been a pleasure to be part of her Pilates journey!
Tell us your name and a little about yourself.
Luci Slotnick. I’m a former teacher and mother to a 20 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. I’m from Texas and have been living in Melbourne for about a year and a half.
When did you start your Pilates journey?
I started doing Pilates a little over a year ago.
How did you find APM?
I found APM by doing research online looking for Pilates studios in the Bayside area.
What is the reason you keep doing Pilates?
I keep doing Pilates because I enjoy it and I think it’s good for my physical and mental health.
What have you felt the biggest benefit has been?
The biggest benefit has been the overall strength and confidence I’ve gained.
Anything you find particularly challenging?
My most challenging aspect is keeping my legs straight/extended even with really tight hamstrings. Very frustrating!
Do you have goals to reach in your Pilates journey?
My goals are to get my hamstrings flexible enough to keep my legs straight in all positions and to be strong enough to handle the advanced exercises I see instructors practicing.
Do you have a favourite Pilates exercise or sequence?
My all time favourite Pilates activity is hanging from the Cadillac.
How often do you attend classes at APM?
I go to APM classes two to three times a week.
What do you love most about coming to Authentic Pilates Melbourne?
I love coming to APM because I get to escape the troubles of daily life by concentrating on my body and interacting with friendly positive instructors!
Thanks Luci for sharing your Pilates journey with us - we look forward to working with you and helping to achieve your goals!
