Founder, Deborah Armstrong says;
“After my second child, I developed a spinal problem which I recovered from by embracing Pilates to stabilise and strengthen my core. I then went on to train as a fitness instructor and gained my Pilates certification. Over 8 years later I have developed a wealth of knowledge within the fitness industry.
In the last 3 years, my training has developed further into restoring and rehabilitation lead by Pilates; Therapies and Trigger Point Pilates. I achieved my Personal Training qualification and also Exercise referral. Due to occurring further injuries myself, I feel empathy for those who are injured or suffer conditions that appear to have no relief. The sessions I offer are designed to suit any skill or level helping people achieve a variety of goals. I work with clients after clinic to restore fitness but also with fit clients to PT and empower their fitness to full potential.”
Joseph Hubertus Pilates (December 9, 1883 – October 9, 1967) was a German physical trainer of Greek descent notable for having invented and promoted the Pilates method of physical fitness.
It was created for the purpose of rehabilitation. Pilates was a man who overcame his own childhood weaknesses through developing and practising his own regime of exercises. According to the Pilates Foundation website, Pilates apparently suffered with asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever. He worked as a circus performer, boxer and self-defence instructor in the UK in 1912. Some of the first people treated by Pilates were soldiers returning from war and dancers such as Martha Graham and George Balanchine (to strengthen their bodies and heal their aches and pains).
