Pilates

Chloe trained with STOTT PILATES® which incorporates modern exercise principles, and applies proven and accepted practices in biomechanics, rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement.  The STOTT Pilates exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints.

Chloe has developed her practise to be a mixture of classical STOTT Pilates and dynamic Pilates. Depending on what you are hoping to achieve, Chloe will create a programme specifically for you that will give you strength, flexibility, co-ordination, correct body alignment and increased core strength and stability.

Dynamic Pilates focuses on the above, however the intensity is increased by use of repetition, small equipment and various newly developed exercises. 

In today’s world our bodies spend far too much time in environments that do not promote general well-being. Life can be very static and we often find ourselves spending long hours hunched over the computer or slumped in front of the TV. This lifestyle can lead to a host of postural problems.

Here a just a few things Pilates can assist you with:

Pre and Post Natal Pilates

Chloe is trained in both Pre and Post Natal Pilates. Pregnancy and childbirth are times of significant change for our bodies. Chloe’s prenatal classes are an excellent way to assist your body in adapting to these changes as well as preparing it for the final stages of pregnancy and the birthing process.

Pilates throughout pregnancy will stand you in good stead for a quick recovery after the birth, giving you a head start in getting back in to shape and providing you with the extra strength you need for life with a new born!

Your first step in postnatal recovery can begin any time after your 6 week check up with your GP and Chloe will tailor make a programme specific to your needs. In time this will help you regain your stability and core strength. It will also increase energy levels and help you adopt techniques enabling postural support. Crucial for carrying your new baby around or lifting the pushchair into the back of the car!

Total Barre

Chloe is qualified in Total Barre which is a high octane, dynamic workout.  It combines certain elements of Pilates, dance, strength training and cardio work outs and can be adapted to suit everyone.

TRX

The TRX Suspension Trainer is a workout system with a suspended strap that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises.
