So whether you are looking to get back into exercise or you are recovering from an injury, Pilates Health can help guide you to where you want to be.
Where it all began
I started out back in 2000 as a Physiotherapist working for the NHS. I soon found my passion was in helping people who were struggling to exercise due to injuries or pain.
This is when I found Pilates! I saw how it could help so many people build their confidence in their bodies. It gave them the ability to work towards goals that were important to them and at their own pace.
I went on to open my own Pilates Clinic in Solihull back in 2013 and since then I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of women aged from 30 right up to 82! Helping them to achieve their goals.
Many of them came to my very first classes and I am honoured to still work with them today!
So what is it like to work with me?
Good question! I don’t profess to be the fittest, most super toned Plates instructor out there, that’s just not me. I am not about workouts as a quick fix, I am more your tortoise than the hare.
For me, It’s all about keeping fit and healthy with strong muscles, flexible joints and a healthy mind.
I think how you exercise is sooo important. It is better to work at a level that is right for you, activating the right muscles at the right time and building up
If we work at a higher level too soon then we risk injury by getting the wrong muscles to do the job or over using certain joints. You may feel like ‘everything’ has worked but unless it’s the right muscles, in the right way, what’s the point?
Keeping active should be fun – if you don’t enjoy it you won’t do it. So I try to always bring a bit of humour to my classes, I don’t edit out the classes to make them perfect and I definitely have days when my body goes on strike!
What about the real me?
I am a busy Mom to 2 wonderful boys, William and Zac and a self-confessed Chocoholic.
Anyone who knows me will tell you I am slightly crazy (in a good way) and I think life is way too short and it is important to have a laugh and enjoy yourself.
Just to explain, that is not how I normally exercise! It was a class I did to raise money for Sport Relief. Someone suggested I should do it in 80’s wear, so I thought, why not.
Don’t get me wrong I have plenty of days where I over think things and get stuck in my own head but I have found Pilates to be a great way to chill out and relax.
I love teaching! I think it is fantastic and I find it so rewarding to see how Pilates makes such a difference in people’s lives. It’s why I do what I do and why I wanted to create Pilates Health, to reach more people. I want to make a difference and have fun along the way.
