Motivation:

img_8018-minHaving a weekly or biweekly class can help keep you on track and motivate you to stay there.  It is so easy to say “I’ll go tomorrow” when going to the gym.  Or “I’m just too tired today”.  But when you are part of a class that looks forward to your attendance each week and an instructor that knows you by name, it keeps you motivated to keep your health and wellbeing a priority.

About the author

Alicia Jamous

I qualified as a physiotherapist a number of years ago now with a Doctorate in Physiotherapy from Boston, Massachusetts in the USA. Love brought me to Manchester from the US, and I have been happily settled in the UK since! I have great passion for Pilates because of the amazing effect it has on your body. I feel great energy after a good session and I really enjoy meeting the wonderful people at my classes! I cater for all abilities - from people who have never exercised before to elite athletes. If you can’t find me at work you can find me out on a run, hanging out with family/friends or looking up her next beach holiday spot (or at a Pilates class of course!)
