Alicia Gurney has been coming to Studio 54 Pilates & More for three years. She originally came into the studio because she needed to get back into shape after a double mastectomy and chemotherapy due to breast cancer. With Amie’s encouragement she showed Alicia that with Pilates it was possible to get her strength and self-confidence back. Alicia has said that Pilates and Amie made it possible for her to get up out of her chair and enjoy life. She has participated in private and group classes in Pilates and continues to inspire us with her progress! Here are her answers to our questions.
When did you start working out at Studio 54 Pilates & More and why?
I started in may of 2017 about 15 months after my last chemo treatment. I had no muscle definition and did not have energy to do much but sit in my chair.
