Pilates and Marjoleine Brugman


Marjoleine BrugmanIt was great to be on air with pilates expert Marjoleine Brugman the other night – I was helping her to celebrate 10 years at QVC with her pilates equipment. She really has been an inspiration to me and she is such a kind person.

She even bought me flowers because I was her first ever host in the UK!! It was her 10th anniversary, shouldn't it have been the other way round?!

She also sent me a lovely email for my 15th anniversary show because she wasn't able to be here herself.

Pilates has really helped me stay strong and supple over the last ten years. For the show we brought in my son, Daniel, as the 'expert'. He has just qualified as a personal trainer and has now agreed to train me – let's hope the waist, that has thickened a little of late, will reappear soon.

Watch this space and I'll keep you updated on my progress!

Love Julia x

    Hello Mary, what a terrible thing to happen to you – I hope you are on the mend. Can you write to me at QVC with your address and in the meantime I will try and track one down for you. Take it gently when you start to exercise again.
    Julia xx
