This is a shameless plug promoting my sister’s (ad)venture as a Gyrotonic instructor.
Most of you know Debby’s story…
in 2000 she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
It was caught early,
and after the standard course of treatment the prognosis looked good.
But (there’s always a but), in 2004 it was discovered again, this time as metastisized breast cancer…
landing in her bones, specifically her pelvis. She was treated with chemo, and with radiation.
The drugs left her weak and thin and the radiation left her hip muscle damaged– at one point she was even using a walker.
In her quest to regain her strength, and improve the range of motion in her hip, through a friend who is a physical therapist, she found Gyrotonic exercise. If you had seen my sister in 2004, you would not recognize her today. She not only looks great, she is successfully keeping the cancer at bay and her physical fitness has improved significantly. In fact, the attached postcard is a picture of Debby on the Gryotonic tower.
Debby liked the exercise system so much that she determined to become a certified Gyrotonic instructor, which she completed earlier this year.
The exercise system is similar to pilates. You work one-on-one with an instructor utilizing the machine’s system of weights and pulleys for resistance training. I liken a Gryotonic session to something between a workout and a massage. The next day you definitely feel like you got a work out, and all the stretching and rotational movement makes you feel like you got a massage.
A private session is usually $65, but as a new Gyrotonic instructor, Debby is offering a first time client special of $35 for an hour-long session…. She’s working out of a pilates studio in Encinitas on El Camino Real just north of Encinitas Boulevard. (The Pilates Place is located at 317 N. El Camino Real Suite 109, Encinitas, CA)
I know this is not for everyone– maybe it’s not in your budget, maybe Encinitas is too far– but (see, I told you there’s always a but!) maybe you know someone this would be perfect for, and you could pass this along.
If you have any questions, give me a holler, or an email, or call Debby direct.
Thanks for reading! No obligation to buy anything, ever…
