May I take this opportunity to highly recommend Ms. Deanna Lesmeister as an excellent physical therapist/health and fitness coach. Ms. Lesmeister has instructed me for several weeks in the Pilates physical system, for rehabilitation subsequent to a serious and debilitating injury and resulting surgery. The orthopedic surgeon who is my treating physician is in total agreement that is extremely important for post-surgical patients to retrain the whole body rather than just the injured area. He was happy to write me a prescription for Ms. Lesmeister to use the Pilates system as a rehabilitation technique. Ms. Lesmeister is a registered physical therapist as well as Pilates coach, she clearly understands the complexities of the human anatomy. Although I have only had eight Pilates sessions and need much more rehabilitation, I can already see a difference in my level of body strength and muscle tone. Ms. Lesmeister is willing to adapt exercises to meet the personal needs of her clients, and she is very knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic about her chose profession. It is a pleasure to work with her and I am happy to recommend her to anyone who needs/requests her services.
