Everyone can benefit from Pilates, male or female and whatever your age or fitness level.  Pilates is a wonder discipline and suitable for anyone who wishes to obtain long, sleek muscles and excellent core strength.  We are only as strong as our weakest link and Pilates concentrates on working the large and small muscles of your body in a gentle and relaxing manner from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.  Pilates lengthens muscles which may have become shortened and tight through weight training and/or poor posture.
Pilates is particularly beneficial in increasing muscular endurance and flexibility, fitness components that improve our everyday functionality.  It increases your body awareness and you will see big improvements to your posture.  Incorrect posture can lead to a number of debilitating injuries and unnatural stresses on your muscular skeletal shape which often causes injury, especially over time.



Practise Pilates with Laurel in the relaxation room which is separate to the main gym.  Gain strength and confidence with exercises designed specifically for your ability, postural type and goals.

Pilates for Rehabilitation

Injuries, especially chronic ones, often occur from long-standing postural issues which are exacerbated by repetitive sports.  These issues need to be analysed and then a workout programmed designed to improve both posture and the relevant muscular weaknesses.  You are only as strong as your weakest link and Pilates will help strengthen and improve the kinetic chain so you can continue training to your optimum potential.
