Pilates is recognized by top athletes in every sport. Tiger Woods, Rich Beem, Curt Schilling, Rubin Brown, Jason Kidd, and Rocco Mediate praise the benefits of Pilates in USA Today. Pro basketball players reported that Pilates ranked very high on scale of demanding exercises, after having been trained by the most elite physical conditioning experts in the field.
Golf pros love Pilates because it helps them be more aware of the intricacies of the golf swing not only for themselves, but also for those they are coaching. Shape Shifters staff trains many Cardinals baseball players from Springfield and St. Louis. We also train Fran Tuck, the Missouri state record holder for the half marathon for several years. She is 86 yrs young! Soccer players, basketball and even wrestlers have worked with us to enhance their sports performance.
