Thank you

By , Philippines on October 19, 2015

I only write this to tell you how good I think your DVD programs are. I am an 77 year old physiotherapist and I have used your programs for may be 3 to 4 years. Up till just now I have been living in the Philippines and purchased the equipment in Manila and I purchased your DVDs online. I enjoy the exercises and the DVDS are so easy to follow. I have a routine of 2 DVDs in the morning and it is great fun. I only want you to know how much I appriciate your Pilates! Thank you.
