Marie-Christine Slater, who is over 60 years old, has been doing Pilates with me twice a week for the past 8 years. She leads a very active lifestyle that includes brisk walks and playing golf.
Three weeks ago Marie-Christine went in for a hip replacement, which was successfully performed at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. She is back in the studio doing mildly paced Pilates routines, which we will increase and adjust as her rehabilitation improves.
Through the years I have had several clients who have undergone hip replacements. They all returned to their Pilates routines and lifestyles fairly quickly. However, Marie-Christine now holds the record for the fastest return to the studio.
