My name is Will. I started training in Pilates after my physicians used it as rehab for a bad Motorcycle Crash I had, it was the difference between bouncing back and crawling back. Seriously.
It inspired me so much I decided to go to NYC to train to be a Pilates Instructor. Firstly in mat Pilates and then Apparatus. I believe it’s a Holy Grail for everyone and can be applied to so many types of exercise, training etc. I would say that I love the challenge it presents too, where you have to be precise, controlled, centred, concentrated and move with flow and breath. But it is a full body exercise system.
I come from a fighting background, where I studied Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu etc. I used to teach MMA fighters in LA a Pilates mat class and they could see the benefits. I love the strength aspect of Pilates too and quality of movement.
I’ve been teaching Pilates for 9 years as a mat instructor and 7 years as a fully comprehensive senior Instructor at one of the top fitness clubs in London. I am trained in Reformer and at all levels for Cadillac, Tower Chair, Barrels, Spine Corrector etc.
A year and a half ago i was introduced to and started undertaking challenging Military events such as the Fan dance, Woodhouse Trident etc. but i truly believe that Pilates was my game changer, as I didn’t suffer with tight hip flexors, lower back pain, any injuries or muscle fatigue.
My Philosophy is that Pilates just works. Joseph Pilates was a Boxer, Diver and a Gymnast.
