I was trained in a little town called Glossop in Derbyshire, and was taught by Cherry Baker the main tutor and founder of Modern Pilates and Director of Professional Fitness and Education Limited.My aim is to provide the highest quality Modern Pilates, Weight Training and Calisthenic’s  Lessons in my area.

  • The knowledge I have is passed onto you through carefully planned programmes. Modern Pilates course is unique in that it adopts a clinical approach to Pilates and is taught by physiotherapists and Modern Pilates Matwork practitioners.
  • Modern Pilates is a method of exercise that will condition and tone the body. Its methods are very different from many traditional types of exercise. The aim is to work muscles from the inside out, creating a stronger flatter mid section, improved posture, muscle balance, realigning the spine and improving both the function and appearance of the body.
  • Modern Pilates is a relaxing and individual programme which works both the body & mind. Modern Pilates is also aimed at relieving stress and can help improve sleep patterns and tension, specifically in the neck and shoulders.
