I have been attending classes weekly at Modern Pilates in St Leonards, NSW for over five years. I enjoy classes very much. The management of the practice is very good and is user friendly. The premises are well laid out and always spotlessly clean. The equipment, stationary and mobile, is excellent and well suited for its purposes. Over the years, I have exercised under four long term instructors, all of whom were and are well trained and qualified, diligent, competent and friendly. At least one of the other students in my class has been in same class with me for all this period. I find my weekly attendance to be a happy social event as well as a good fitness operation.
I am now ninety-four years of age and find all my strenuous exercises within my competence. I would not for the world miss my weekly session at Modern Pilates.
