OK I was in Pilates heaven the other day! I had the pleasure of working with a pro athlete, Clayton Richard, of The Chicago Cubs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love working with my clients, every one of them. I experience the biggest rewards when I help them get back into their active lifestyles and having fun. All of my clients want to get back into their game,  want to be able to play with their kids and want to be able to get back into their fitness routine. It means the world to me that I can be a part of that journey and help them get their lives back.

What makes working with a pro athlete a Pilates heaven experience? One of the biggest simple pleasure moments I have had recently? Me, being a body dork. Totally. It was an incredible experience to work with someone who is so connected into their body, able to adjust and make correction at will. It was exciting to see a body move with a balance of strength, grace and mobility. A combination he works hard at to achieve. It’s incredible what a body can do when we train and practice.

As a trainer I was able to tap into my skills and take them to a whole other level; it was inspiring, fun and energizing. I had such a blast! I enjoyed challenging him, making him work hard and tap into the nuances of the movement. I was totally in my element, I felt right at home.

So I want to thank Clayton Richard for my simple pleasure moment of the day, which is a pretty big one!! Thank you Clayton and I look forward to the next time we work together!

When was the last time you felt inspired, energized and had a blast with your work? I would like to know your story, do share.
