When I first met Lucy in December 2014, the relationship I had with my body (and mind) was a negative one. I was struggling to find ways to get back to myself and regain trust in the body that had let me down. Lucy welcomed me. She saw the potential, but also saw the struggles. Now, I move more, I move better and have been able to get back to cycling, running and other forms of exercise I hadn't been able to do for a long time. Pilates is one of the best presents I could have given myself! The Pilates sessions at ASPIRE have brought me focus, coordination, strength and confidence.
So much more than a physical workout. Lucy's work is transformational on all levels inner and outer. She uses her sharp intuition to inform and lead each session from your core outwards. Highly recommended
I have just completed my 13th intense session with Lucy. It is making such a difference to my life. She is rebuilding me muscle by muscle and my posture has improved, my aches and pains are disappearing and I am becoming more flexible. I just wish I started pilates years ago. I highly recommend Aspire Pilates!
I had never tried Pilates before I started taking classes from Lucy. She is a great observer with her eye always on the small details. Lucy ensured I was completing the exercises with good form and without straining. With her guidance, I was able to learn the core exercises, build my strength and improve my flexibility. My Pilates classes with Lucy also helped to eliminate many aches and pains in my back and joints. Lucy is such a caring instructor. She was very supportive throughout the learning process, and she always pushed me to do my absolute best!
I started Pilates in 2014 at the suggestion of my doctor who examined me at the time for the purpose of issuing a medical certificate for competitive cycling. I have a history of lower back problems and the doctor suggested that Pilates would be a good way to reduce the risk of further lower back issues. When I started Pilates I had good strength in my legs and cardio-vascular system but that was about it. Now I have much better all-round strength and especially noticeable are the core muscles that form a more protective ‘corset’ to support my lower back. My balance and flexibility have also improved substantially. Pilates has become a very important part of my fitness regime.
Pilates with Lucy Bosscher has changed my life! Breathing Pilates helped me learn how to breathe! I am a former smoker and had a problem taking in enough oxygen to exercise properly. I can now jog distances and feel confident and relaxed enough to enjoy exercising because all of my organs are getting sufficient oxygen. Lucy created a custom Pilates program to target my physical inefficiencies. Suffering with muscle stiffness and weakness for over two years inhibited me functioning to my best abilities. After fourteen sessions, I have the flexibility and strength to perform movements and carry weight like before my injury!
