For a woman over 60 like me, Pilates classes filled with slim, young bodies can be intimidating and discouraging, but Vicky Virtuoso’s Pilates is pure joy. Vicky’s gentle encouragement and focus on the positive make the Pilates experience fun and empowering for me. Vicky uses her technical expertise to choose the most beneficial exercises for my particular body and eases me into performing them at my personal best. The serene ambiance and Vicky’s sparkling intelligence assure a rejuvenating workout. Thanks to Vicky and her Reformer, I’m becoming stronger and more flexible…and feeling younger in the process.
Vicky is amazing. She has taken a lazy, stubborn, impossibly willful creature such as myself and whipped me into the best physical shape I've ever been in. Her ability to understand a person's idiosyncrasies, and then make adjustments to her teaching in order to break through, is a rare quality in any teacher. She challenges you when you feel like giving up and has faith you can push through when you don't. For the first time in over a decade, I feel really good about what I see when I look in the mirror. After three months, the reoccurring pain in my neck and shoulders is gone, I am more flexible and agile and have lost a significant amount of weight while gaining a great deal of muscle. She is worth every penny and then some.
I took a lesson, wondering what the hell I was getting into. Well…it was amazing. This scary-looking machine, in the hands of Vicky, accompanied by her passion and expertise, became a sort of dance for me. I was dancing (sitting down) with a machine. I found my body becoming more flexible as our session went on. Vicky is gentle, in a firm way…very pleasant. Her focus is keen. When we finished, I felt limber, with elevated blood flow. The next day, I felt better than I had in a long time. This feeling lasted for almost a week.
I see Vicky for Pilates twice a week and have already noticed that I am much stronger, leaner, and more sculpted than I was when I started! I've already gotten several compliments from friends and family on my fitter physique! Best of all, Vicky is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgeable, motivating, and friendly, and always makes sure to tailor her routines to her clients' abilities and goals. Every time I do a session with Vicky, I leave feeling invigorated, rather than exhausted, and happy knowing I got in a great workout that day! If you want your body to change, come see Vicky!
