The friendly and knowledgeable trainers are adapting individual programmes for us to ensure a gradual progression of exercise challenges. After each session we are left with a feeling of well-being and whole body improvement. We recommend the course for anyone, male or female, of any age, who wishes to better their physical condition.”

All I can say is that your brand of Pilates has been absolutely wonderful for me. I was totally incapacitated with sacroiliac pain for a month just a few weeks before I started Pilates and touch wood it hasn’t happened again. You have taught me so much about movement, strength and balance, all of which is now second nature in whatever I do – so thank you! I will certainly continue to recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their general well-being.
PILATES – (good for men too)
By John and Rae Kelly
We are both delighted by the experience and its effect on us since we started.

I thought you would like to know how pleased I am with the health benefits of doing pilates.
I suffer with sciatica and I have had an meniscus tear in both knees.
I have been attending your Pilates classes for nearly two years and my knees are now fine and I can keep the sciatica under control.
I was beginning to feel like an old woman but I now feel stronger and more agile.
I would recommend pilates to anyone!
Keep up the good work and I’ll see you in the class tomorrow.

I thought I should email you to let you know that I saw the Diabetes Nurse last week and she said ‘well done’ because my blood sugar level was down again to 45 and I’d lost a bit more weight. I have cut down the sort of thing I’m eating but I think weekly Zumba has had a big impact. I’ve never enjoyed going to the gym and Zumba is so much more fun! And I feel fitter!
Thank you for the classes.
ZUMBA AND PILATES
By Sandy Coombs
Just let you know, this time last year I could hardly move with back pain. Sneezing or landing in a pothole whilst walking were killers and I wouldn’t even dream of jumping off a step. After many x-rays, blood tests, visits to physios, rheumatology and an MRI the doctors were still unsure of the cause of pain. As you know I started your pilates last September and would arrive in time to hear the end of Zumba which sounded fun but I couldn’t possibly put myself through that – the thought of that pain….ooooh
Anyhoo, braved it and think that its done me the world of good. My back feels so much free-er (yeah, not sure that’s a word) and apart from the occasional wheat bag I have not taken pain killers for ages 🙂 Of course, I do some pilates at home with the roller and my beloved spikey ball but it just goes to show that we need to constantly move.
Thank you for being a great motivator, love Mondays 🙂
