Karen and her student for this workshop, Ken Kretch share exercises in the Pilates system that both feed the needs of swimmers as well as return the body to balance. When he started his Pilates practice, one of Ken's goals was to improve his backstroke and freestyle strokes as well as the kick for breaststroke. Find out what they did to achieve this goal! Filmed at Vintage Pilates.

    Really enjoyed this workout. Quick question about the jump board section: what spring load are you using for jumping? Thanks!

      Hi there,
      I am glad you enjoyed the workout. The jump board is loaded on 2 springs and we are working on a Gratz 86″ reformer.
