Client Highlight-Cindy Merryman

Cindy Merryman began taking barre class at Tara Gregorio Pilates & Wellness in 2014. Little did I know she would become one of my greatest clients {and my first employee!}

When she began, Cindy struggled with her weight but also hip and lower back pain.  She loved the barre class but occasionally it left her with hip pain.  She invested in private pilates sessions to learn the correct exercises for her hip and attended group classes whenever we offered them on the weekend. Currently, She attends pilates classes 2-4x week.  

Cindy also embraced the diet workshops we offered like Eat To Lose and the 5-Week Restart; shedding up to 30 lbs. over the past three years.   She continues to eat gluten and dairy free, which she finds gives her more energy and funny enough.. less hip pain.  

Read more below about Cindy's experience. We are so proud of her success!

I was at the heaviest weight that I had ever been.  Until I reached my mid-thirties, I was always underweight and never had to worry about the way clothes looked on me.  I could wear whatever I wanted. 

When I reached my mid-thirties, I started to notice that it was getting a lot easier to gain weight and harder to take it off.  That' s when I discovered Weight Watchers.  Weight Watchers worked for me for several years.  Each time I would follow the diet it worked great and I lost 25 pounds pretty easy, but I was hungry all the time.

Now that I am in my forties, I found myself at the heaviest weight I have been.  So, I went to the weight loss plan that I knew best, Weight Watchers.  Only this time I was unsuccessful each time I tried.  I needed to try something new.  So, when Tara offered the 5- week restart workshop, I jumped on board.  I have to admit that I was not happy about giving up sugar and my Dunkin Donuts creamer.  

After a short time following this plan,

I was surprised that the foods I was eating were satisfying and kept me full throughout the day.  I did not crave sweets and chips.  This motivated me to continue eating healthy and I felt much better.  I even noticed an improvement with my sinus headaches and allergies.

I would recommend Tara Gregorio Pilates and Wellness for several reasons.  The studio is friendly and welcoming.  Tara and her staff are supportive and motivating.  It's a great place to get that individual attention that you don't find at a big sports club.
