“I started doing Pilates with Steph around 3 or 4 years ago. I’m not young and I’m not skinny, and hadn’t done proper exercise for years. I went as I had lots of back problems – constant lower back and hip pain, trapped nerve in shoulder etc, and was thinking of buying shares in Nurofen Plus and heat pads as I was using them on a daily basis. It’s hard to describe how Pilates has helped without sounding like one of those ‘miracle cure’ converts. But it has really helped my movement and mobility – I feel so much stronger and the back pain is virtually just a bad memory. I went to other Pilates teachers who were good but came back to Steph – she’s a real stickler for technique and makes the class effective and enjoyable. I’d recommend Pilates to anyone.” Freda
