So why Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise, designed to improve the overall health of individuals, to either prevent injuries or help recovery following them. Pilates specifically targets the smaller stability muscles throughout the body, which often becomes weak or inactive through our daily lives, leading to poor postures and an increased likelihood of injury. Re-awakening these muscles and improving their endurance can be hugely beneficial in improving sporting
performance and movement efficiency.  Pilates also aims to provide mental focus and relaxation, promoting an overall sense of wellbeing.suitable for pilates

Richard Gregory

I am a Physiotherapist that works closely with a variety of people with pain that has developed from injury, overuse in sport, and the poor postures that can be hard to avoid in sedentary jobs. Prior to completing my Masters degree in Physiotherapy, I studied sport science, and consequently have always been passionate about spreading the word about the benefits of exercise in reducing pain and increasing function. I am a strong believer in evidence-based treatments, which is why I have such a passion for Pilates. Personally, I think Pilates is an amazing way to reduce pain and increase strength. It’s fun and challenging at the same time. I love to run and cycle and find using my own Pilates routines helps keep me running injury free and on top of my game.
