Because Pilates is traditionally seen as a workout for the ladies— but has incredible benefits for the men, too—today’s testimonial submitted in by one of our male clients “Moe Kassam” currently training with our expert Pilates instructor – Jeanique Lascar, speaks out loud on how Pilates has benefited his current training regime.  So come on, guys. Break down those gender barriers and give this mind/body exercise a try!

“As a senior business executive I had always assumed that keeping fit involved a workout with the treadmill, weights, push-ups etc. Therefore I resisted my wife’s pleas to join Pilates which she enjoyed. About a year ago when I was feeling particularly tired and stiff after a grueling trip, I agreed to try out Pilates – and soon I was a convert!

I now take Pilates classes 3 times a week (I continue my brisk walk every morning) and realize that Pilates is a full body workout that involves strength training and flexibility that leaves me with an overall feeling of well-being. I wish more people, especially men, would give Pilates a try!”  –  Moe Kassam

 

A bit about our instructor Jeanique – she is a former professional dancer, who moved all the way from Mauritius to Dubai nine years ago to perform with her dance troop at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Club. Over the next five years, her career flourished through a wide spectrum of sport jobs as she worked as a personal trainer, assistant gym manager and dance/Body Jam/Body Balance instructor. She also kept her passion for dance, performing in various dance shows throughout Middle East. After an injury, Jeanique discovered the Pilates Method and decided to take on the intensive 12 months program “The Pilates Method”, to obtain a teacher training diploma, from Boulder, Colorado. After successfully graduating, Jeanique has been enjoying teaching people on how to be in control of their own body, and have a positive mind set in day to day life.
