I must share this really incredible info. I recently had a routine Bone Density Test and the results were really terrific. I have had a series of these tests over the past 25 years or so and the results this time have to be related to my increased in Pilates classes.
The bone mineral density in my spine shown in this recent test increased by 3.2% over the last test (in 2006) and 5.4% from my 2000 baseline. I do not have prior scores to compare, but this is over 10 years as I aged from 58 to 68 years old. The reading is considered normal, so pretty good for 68! My femur readings were barely changed from 2006, but still had increased by 1.7% from the 2000 baseline.
I began to take Pilates Mat classes in late 2000 on a regular basis and am now certified and teaching as well as doing mat and equipment classes so I cannot believe that this is all from calcium and Vitamin D ….my doctor was amazed.
