Asked by theduchess550
I need to start walking each day following an operation on my ankle, and I think it will be much easier with a buddy or via a club. Ideally walking for an hour on weekdays and more on weekends as I get stronger. Goals are to get fit, lose weight and most importantly to overall strengthen my foot and body. I am looking at Pilates as a non weightbearing exercise and I am quite intrigued by the machines... Any ideas/interest please?
Thanks for answering - your answer appears below
I'm sure a Pilates teacher could help you strengthen your ankle, possibly on the reformer machine.
Perhaps it might be a better idea though to build strength in the ankle by slowly building up balances standing on one leg. Possibly on a yoga mat doubled over.
