Fitness, Pilates, wellness.
I love the Pilates method and how it brings about balance and alignment to the whole body and mind.
I like the HiiT (high intensity interval training) to improve our cardio vascular system and help burn calories. And, by the way, high intensity doesn’t always mean high impact, it means the level of intensity you are working your cardiovascular system, (heart and lungs) and that will be different for each individual. It takes less than 30 mins to complete too, so great on the days you want a quick workout.
I love working with weights to help build strength, muscle tone and also help improve bone density. Training with weights is a great compliment to any other fitness you take part in. You dont always need loads of weights to take part, just a pair of dumbbells to start with is ideal.
Move well in the World of Health & Fitness
The classes here below compliment each other very well. However, you can also just choose one or two elements to fit in alongside your current programme.
A no equipment class, mostly on the floor where we aim to improve strength, alignment and flexibility using the pilates method.
Pilates with small equipment
Here, we use various pieces of small equipment such as a resistance bands & mini soft balls, to add challenge and variety. to our mat workouts.
This is a non impact class, where we use light handweights &/or ankle weights in a full body conditioning and strengthening class.

FACE TO FACE CLASSES
Unfortunately I cannot run my community classes at the moment due to the pandemic. Hopefully it wont be long now before we can return to our face to face classes and I will update on that as soon as we are safely allowed to do so. Please revisit this page for any updates when the restrictions in the area are changed.
PT one to one
Personal training, currently offered via Zoom. Single person or couples from £30 per session, please contact me for more details and to discuss your requirements.
Do I need to book?
Yes, you have to book the classes online via my website.
What is the age group?
This is suitable for any age group as modifications are provided throughout.
What should I wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in and for the HiiT and Weight classes, please wear trainers. You don’t need to wear trainers for Pilates.
Do I need any equipment ?
For some of the classes you only need your mat. We also use resistance bands, mini soft balls and hand and ankle weights, but these are optional. If you dont have any equipment I suggest you start with resistance bands and a mini soft ball, such as a bender ball. These can all be purchased cheaply online or local shops.
What if I haven't done Pilates before?
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done Pilates before. I will talk you through the movements and offer modifications. Pilates is a practice that takes a bit of time to learn, be patient with yourself and consistent with your workouts and it will all come together.
What if I have an injury
If you have an injury, then I suggest you wait until your injury has healed before you start. Please check with your doctor/consultant if you are unsure.
If you are coming back from an injury then I would recommend you start with Pilates to increase your core strength and overall body alignment, and then you can move on from there.
