A few words about Pilates
Pilates is is often recommended by doctors and physical therapists as a safe system of exercise which will help to strengthen your back. It is not however ‘an easy option’ for people who do not want to move about too much! It is based on a rigorous exercise routine developed by Joseph Pilates.He created a programme to rehabilitate gymnasts and ballet dancers who had injured themselves as well as to keep prisoners of war fit and healthy.
Judith is a qualified Personal Trainer and Level 3 Pilates Instructor.
Fitness is a ‘retirement’ career for Judith who used to be an English teacher and, dare she admit, a Deputy Head teacher in a Leeds High School.
She trained with Future Fit and Pilates Training Solutions. She is qualified to work with G.P Referrals and in Pre & Post Natal Pilates.
She is also qualified in Sports Massage & Seated Acupressure Massage.
Fitness has always been a passion.
The exercises which are taught in most Mat Pilates classes are modifications of Joseph Pilates’ mat programme and include aspects of more recent research on safe effective exercise.
Judith has developed a programme which combines the principles of classical Pilates with some very functional exercises-
Judith has some experience of Pilates Studio work and tries to use this knowledge in her mat classes.
If you persevere with a programme of Pilates over a period of months you can expect the following benefits:
Stronger back and abdominal muscles
A more toned body
