PIlates CoreAlign Student Peggy Tourje

At Pilates Collective, we are honored by the opportunity to work with members of our community to help them achieve their health and fitness goals. We love celebrating their success. We’re thrilled to share how Pilates and CoreAlign exercise helped Pilates Collective client Peggy Tourje get back to her regular life after being diagnosed with cancer. 

What inspired you to start working out with Pilates Collective? 

Before starting CoreAlign, I was diagnosed with cancer and had undergone 6 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment and recovery period left me with general muscle atrophy and weakness especially in my hips, core, abs and legs.

How has Pilates changed your body?

I was unable to walk up steps or do simple gardening and was limited to slow, short walks. I have been doing CoreAlign Pilates for about 4 months and am amazed at the difference it has made in my overall fitness.

How have Pilates and CoreAlign workouts changed your life?  

As a result of my workouts, twice a week, I am now back to gardening, long walks and I can even make it up a long series of steps. I also notice my balance is improved and my posture is better.
