I'm Adrian, and Classical Pilates has genuinely given me Life Enhancing Movement. I'm in my 50's and want to remain as active as possible for the rest of my life. As we age we can lose strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination, which can affect the things we enjoy in life. I work on my own body to maintain these aspects and I am fortunate enough to be able to make this passion my career.
My background is one of managing chronic back pain and discomfort and enjoying exercise and activity. For years this presented a real challenge but through following the discipline of Pilates I have been able to maintain strength, flexibility and endurance.
I have worked in the fitness industry for the past 20 years and my understanding of fitness has changed considerably over that time. For me, the focus is on how well I move not how much I can lift, how fast I can run or how high I can jump. I believe that movement is about quality and efficiency and that we must learn to move well before we increase exercise intensity or duration. If we neglect this we increase the risk of injury and breakdown.
