Client Corner: Ginger Hicklin

At Springboard, we know our studio wouldn’t be the same without you: our clients and friends! So we have decided to showcase some of you so that everyone else can see how lucky we are to know you! This month, we want to introduce you to mom-to-be Ginger Hicklin! We just know you will love her, too.

First memory or impression of Springboard:
I remember taking my introductory class which was a duet with my friend Lex and thinking to myself, ok- I am going to do this FOREVER. The studio was so warm and inviting as were the instructors and I just remember feeling so at home. It was a cozy place to be, I had never taken Pilates before (except watching a Windsor Pilates DVD a few hundred times), but I was hooked. It didn’t hurt, it wasn’t boring, and I’ve never looked forward to a form of exercise before as much as I have with Pilates at Springboard.

Anything you’d like to add:
Can’t wait to get back into Pilates post pregnancy, gradually strengthening my body back to its original state and enjoying the process.
