Better than Pilates

I’ve had intermittent back pain throughout my adult life – most likely due to poor posture and not being able to sit properly in most chairs (I am five feet tall). I practice Pilates to help with my core strength and other things but the BackTpack just automatically makes me stand taller and feel better
