Retired Figure Skater Heals Hip Injury

Submitted by: Sarah Artha Negara

Rachel's Success Story

"I am a 20 year old female and have had a hip problem for the past five years, which forced me to retire from figure skating (after eight years) but has also left me in constant pain. I had seen 5 different doctors (orthopedic surgeons, specialists, and others) and none were able to give me any relief. After I had given up on finding any relief for my pain I signed up for Sarah's Pilates class, which has helped me tremendously. I am no longer in pain 24/7 and because of her class I have been able to sign up for other physical activity classes (which I never would've thought was possible). Also, Sarah's positive attitude is greatly reflected in the fun environment she sets for her classes, and is always a mood booster! I'd recommend Pilates to anyone looking for an encouraging environment for self-improvement." -Rachel Swartzbaugh
