Will Pilates Challenge me as an athlete?
• Because Pilates trains your body in a very different manner than most sports focussed programs, even seasoned professional athletes can find the exercises challenging!

Boditree Pilates has trained professional athletes and performers and entertainers, locally and internationally.
