Q & A with CFM’s Senior Instructor Jean McCabe

Why did you get Certified in Pilates?
I was a professional ballet dancer with The Stuttgart Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet. After an injury that stopped my career I taught Yoga for a few years . Then I found Pilates. It was the perfect next step for me to integrate movement with strengthening exercises. I was intrigued with the endless variations and combinations of exercises, reminiscent of dance.

How to Keep Older Muscles from Fading Away

Exercise and healthy diets aren’t only for the “young”, and there is a reason why our wiser generations are choosing Pilates as their preferred exercise!

Research shows that most people show a decline in muscle mass from their early 40’s on, and it is more important than ever to continue (or begin!) to exercise and prevent your muscles from frailty!

Pilates is the perfect exercise to build healthy muscle without having to go “weight-lifting” at the gym. The use of light springs along with your own body weight adds to the weight bearing resistance which promotes healthy muscle mass. It is a gentle but effective exercise method that targets your body’s strengths and weaknesses, with exercises that can be adjusted for your needs! Try a class today!!!
