This week’s client spotlight shines on longstanding ProHealth client, Mark R. Carlson. A ProHealth PT graduate, Mark continues his wellness journey with Pilates. His Pilates practice keeps his back “in check” and improves his quality of life while fishing, hiking and golfing.
Hi Mark, thanks for letting us shine the PhoHealth client spotlight on you this week.
How and when did you begin at ProHealth?
I started at Prohealth many years ago for physical therapy. After graduating from PT, I was introduced to Pilates and liked the results. I’ve been coming ever since.
What got you first interested in Pilates and/or Physical Therapy?
After an injury, I needed physical therapy to complete my healing process. After I finished physical therapy, I tried Pilates. I discovered Pilates gave me more flexibility. The increased flexibility improved my golf game, which I really liked.
What have been surprising benefits coming to ProHealth?
I’ve been surprised by how much it has improved the quality of my hobbies. In addition to almost eliminating all back pain, I’ve got great flexibility for golf. I’m able to hike now too. I enjoy Tournament Bass Fishing from a boat. Staying balanced can be a challenge at times when the conditions get rough. I’ve noticed my ability to balance in all conditions has improved dramatically and this is a direct result of Pilates.
Favorite piece of Pilates apparatus and why?
I like them all. Each piece of equipment has its own challenges. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment at the end of a class with a different apparatus.
What’s a Pilates/ Physical Therapy goal you have?
My ongoing goal in Pilates at ProHealth is to lose some weight and stay in shape.
If you were talking to a friend who was on the fence about trying ProHealth, what would you tell them?
I cannot say enough good things about ProHealth Physical Therapy and Pilates. I have spoken to several people about Prohealth. I’ve told them it is a great place that strives to help you in any way that they can. I highly recommend ProHealth Physical Therapy and Pilates to my friends and family.
