Why Pilates? Because I love it! It brings mind and body together in controlled, precise and individualised exercises to meet the needs of everyone who attends.  How did I get here?

I first started working in the fitness Industry over 30 years ago. I worked in Leisure Centres and fitness gyms for many years teaching a variety of classes.  My passion has always been to bring health and well-being to all in relaxed fun classes or one to ones.  I gained my BA Honours in Health Promotion and qualified as a teacher in 2005 (a very busy time!!) Whilst studying I worked in various settings for Myerscough College on their Mental Outreach Programme teaching exercise, diet and relaxation to people with physical and mental disabilities.

I was also at this time a Lecturer at Preston College teaching Gym Instructor and Exercise to Music courses to students, a job I loved.  It is great to see the people I have taught now flourishing in the industry, a real buzz. I then moved onto teaching Health & Social Care, also brilliant to see my students who are now qualified nurses, midwives and social workers.

My varied career paths then brought me to my most recent job which was as Training Manager for a large Care Home company. Although I loved this it did get in the way of my other passion which is to travel, travel and more travel.  My husband is retired and I initially took a 6 months sabbatical to go around Europe in our Campervan.  I have now decided 9-5 or in my case 9 to 10 pm is not for me.

I updated my fitness qualifications with Pilates Level Three Diploma in teaching in 2018 and as I said I just love it!  Come and join me and the next part of my journey.
