Make no bones about it, TheraPilates for Osteoporosis was a huge success!

I was recently at a conference where Sherri Betz was one of the members of a panel discussion on special populations.  The first question that was asked by the moderator was “What reputable research resources could each of the participants recommend?” Without hesitation, one of the panelist grabbed the microphone and said “Two words, Sherri Betz!”

Created by Sherri Betz, PT, TheraPilates for Osteoporosis, is a comprehensive program for the fit and frail, adaptable for the clinical or Pilates studio environment or the neighborhood community center.

Dr. Tim Lohman, bone health researcher at University of Arizona and Terri Guido, PT from the BEST Study.

Thank you for your participation in this wonderful, dynamic and enriching weekend! From leading researchers in bone health at the University of Arizona, to physical therapists, Pilates enthusiasts, Pilates instructors and athletic trainers, it was a pleasure connecting with such a diverse group of individuals from around the world!

We immediately began to incorporate much of what we learned from Sherri into our sessions at BodyQuest Pilates. It is powerful to imagine the ripple effect that our group of 32 participants can have as we return to our own communities with the ability to apply current research in teaching effective exercise for bone health and avoid high fracture risk exercise for the osteoporotic patients or clients.  Sherri, your work is empowering and inspiring, thank you!  I would also like to say “Thank You” to Michele Franzella, PMA®CPT, who assisted Sherri throughout the weekend.
