So many people seek out Pilates to help with lower back pain.

***Make sure you see a medical professional to make sure you are cleared to exercise! If you're not sure why your back hurts, don't expect your Pilates teacher to figure that out. It's not in our scope of practice.***

I outline spine anatomy, review the abdominal muscles and what they do, discuss some common causes of lower back pain, why "tech neck" an...

So many Fitness trainers, Pilates teachers, and yoga teachers believe that we need to do new and varied movements all the time.

In fact, I've heard people complain about the basics, calling them boring and questioning their use and effectiveness.

I'm a big believer in the power of basic exercises that strengthen us for the things we need to do in our every day lives.

You may notice that I have very distinct opinions about how to teach Pilates, and especially regarding language and cues.

The three cues I outline in this episode are useless, confusing, and ultimately can harm your clients. Stay away!

If you're a Pilates client, avoid teachers who consistently use these cues no matter how you are feeling.

I'm super excited about this interview! I've known Allan Menezes for about 30 years, and had clients who had great outcomes after working with him while they were working in Australia.

[Note that my audio has some echo. It's just when I speak. I apologize for that, and will fix it before my next interview.]

We talk about all the things - how a rugby injury led Allan to Pilates with Alan Herdman in London, opening the firs...

According to the NY Times, "Falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide". While we can talk about exercise in terms of cardio, strength, and endurance, I find it much more useful to talk to my clients about function.

In this episode I break down the basic skills you need to be able to enjoy a long life, and what exercises help with this. Fall prevention is a skill!

I talk to so many potential clients who love simple and effective workouts, and steer clear of Pilates. Most recently, someone told me that she went to a studio and left feeling like Pilates had to involve equipment and was way too technical, so she's rather not do Pilates.

Yet, she loves my work and approach, which are distinctly Pilates.

Pilates is at a crossroads (as is all fitness right now), and we need to decide whether to look ahead and move forward, or focus on the past.

I've been working with Joan Breibart for over 30 years, since I became a founding member of the Institute for the Pilates Method in 1991. Joan is a force, and was the first person Sean Gallagher sued in the infamous trademark lawsuit.

She has a lot to say about where Pilates has been and wh...

Pilates, in fact, does not require equipment!

Listen for some Pilates history, what the equipment does, and how you can mimic the studio equipment at home for under $200 total.

This is for everybody, including Pilates & Fitness trainers!

If you've been focused on doing different things all the time to "confuse" your muscles, you're actually doing yourself a disservice.

While your brain may be easily confused, muscles are not!

I walk through my developmental approach to teaching a push up.

You may have heard the phrase "neutral spine" in a Pilates or other exercise class, and I bet that neither you nor the trainer who said it understands what neutral spine means. There's a reason for that....
