I knew at each session that Courtney had been thinking about my specific needs. The Pilates workouts were always just what I needed and they have transformed my life. I am much more active now, more balanced and flexible. My golf game has improved, I’m back on my bicycle and I feel more whole thanks to her knowledge and ability to help me understand how to better care for myself.
I am convinced that if I hadn’t trained with Courtney, the future would look less promising for me.
Courtney is always prepared. She did extra research to find exercises specifically for my body, which helped greatly! She took charge from the beginning, very mindful of my performance, and adapted exercises to my fitness level and abilities. My posture and strength have greatly improved from Pilates!
My best Pilates experience was with Courtney, as she was very encouraging and made me feel very comfortable as I was learning. I am now ready for advance Pilates work!
March 2011, I hired Courtney Klocke of Point of Balance Pilates to conduct weekly Pilates mat classes at our Quadion Corporation and Minnesota Rubber & Plastics headquarters. Courtney held an informational meeting for those with questions and concerns, and then the classes were offered to all 100 employees. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest; over 35 people signed up for the classes. Courtney’s mat classes were so well received due to her enthusiasm and caring attitude that our numbers stay around 25 participants each week.
Quadion Corporation and Minnesota Rubber & Plastics care for its employees’ health and wellness and offering these classes was one way to illustrate this initiative. However, never did we think these classes would have such an impact. This, in itself, is a testiment to Courtney’s abilities. The employees who participate in her classes report that they feel energized by the workout, and are seeing positive changes in both their strength and flexibility. Here is a sampling of some of the comments we have received from our employees:
“I think Pilates is the perfect exercise for the workplace.”
“Courtney does a good job of always saying, if you’re not comfortable doing this, you can…”
“Thank you for putting this program in place.”
“I love Courtney and everything she has brought to class.”
We are very pleased with this feedback from our employees, and know that any positive change in the health of our employees will ultimately benefit the overall health of our organization.
