The Pilates community at Pilates Teck, in Newhall California, where I used to teach, just lost a dear friend and client to breast cancer. Cathy fought for 9 years, and I mean fought. Like her husband says ” she was a warrior.”
I taught her many times and even though she complained most of the time, she still liked to get her butt kicked. One day she came for a class and wanted to do an hour of arm exercises. She was going on a cruise and wanted to show her arms. Well, after about 15 minutes of arms she gave in. It is hard to do arms for an hour. She was constantly using her theraband at home to do arm exercises as well. She was obsessed with her arms.
