Client of the Month: Shayne Ernzer
What Brought You to Pilates MN? 18 months ago I had a total hip replacement. I’ve had residual weakness and pain. My surgeon’s advice to me, as far as rehab, was simply to, “walk, walk, walk.” Yet, for me, walking was excruciating. 8 weeks post-op I began traditional physical therapy. During my first session, my therapist told me to do 20 squats. I remember thinking at the time that this man must work with people like me all the time. If other folks with hip replacements are squatting 8 weeks post-op, then I better just power through and fight like hell to do it. Needless to say, after my session, I hobbled into the women’s restroom, locked myself in a stall and cried and cried. I was in so much pain, I was confused, I felt helpless and alone. A month later, I happened to drive by Pilates MN. I felt like it was a lightning bolt of a sign. I called and scheduled an evaluation with Shawn. Thus began my therapeutic journey to recovery through Pilates. I work with both Shawn & Johnna and come four times a week. Pilates is giving me my life back. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to team with such educated, dedicated, resourceful, problem-solvers as these two, dynamic women. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress I’ve made in the year I’ve been coming to Pilates MN.

Why do you enjoy Pilates? I absolutely love Pilates. Every session with Shawn & Johnna begins with a check-in. They ask me where my body is at that moment and then formulate a plan for that session addressing my needs. I adore the variety of exercises that I do. There is always something new that I am learning.

Favorite Song: “Take me Home,” by Phil Collins is my favorite song. He wrote it in 1985. This song brings me peace and grounds me. If ever I feel unsettled, Phil can, “Take me Home.”

Favorite Book: My favorite books are historical fiction with strong characters (female typically) who overcome great obstacles and fight for what they believe in.  One of my all-time favorite books is, "In the Time of the Butterflies," by Julia Alvarez. 

Favorite Movie: My favorite movies are those that exemplify a strong bond of friendship that survive time, distance, and withstand conflict. Shawshank Redemption, Spy Game and Thelma & Louise are a few of my favorites.
