I started taking Pilates with Arkeif 2 years ago with the intention of relieving pain and stiffness. I suffer from arthritis and degenerative disc disease in my spine. Since I have been working out with Arkeif twice a week, I have noticed less pain, increased strength, and better mobility. He knows exactly what type of exercises I need to do by asking me questions about how I’m feeling that day. He is very knowledgeable, kind, patient and very professional.
