Melissa decided she wanted to do Pilates after injuring her back. A comment from her physiotherapist, “You have an old spine for your age,” made her realize that she needed to make some lifestyle changes to preventing an injury like this from happening, again. She took her first Pilates class in 2016 and has been a Pilates enthusiast ever since.

What she loves about Pilates is that these exercises and movements that have the ability to transform the body. She has said about herself, “If my old body and my new [Pilates] body were to pass each other on the street, the two wouldn’t recognize each other.”

Her favorite Joe Pilates quote is, ‘Physical fitness can neither be achieved by wishful thinking, nor outright purchase.’ It reminds her that you have to put the time in if you want results and success.

One of Melissa’s favorite things to do (other than Pilates) is sit on her deck and take in the morning sun with a cup of plain old black coffee
