I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I'm enjoying your pilates videos and what a difference they've made to my health. I've been a keen runner for many years but about 18 months ago I started getting extreme and long-lasting pain in my right hip whenever I ran. I saw several specialists who told me that it was muscle imbalances caused by my glutes not firing but despite seeing a couple of physios and doing all sorts of prescribed exercises, nothing worked and I ended up having to give up running altogether.
However, for the last few months I've been doing one of your videos every day and am currently working my way through the 'hip and groin pain' section. In my lunch break today I thought I'd try a little jog on the treadmill to see how things were and I was able to run 5 k in one go with no pain. I can't tell you what a huge achievement this is for me and how happy I am this afternoon! As I ran I kept thinking about all the work I'd done with your videos to strengthen my core, stretch my hip and fire up my glutes and it has obviously all paid off. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me get back to a state where I feel like myself again and can carry on with the running that is so important to me. I'm so grateful!
