Back pain

As someone who’s struggled with back pain after 3 car accidents 😮, I guess it’s maybe not surprising that I’ve ended up working in the fitness area.

‍‍‍‍

I see other adults struggling with their lower back pain, having visited doctors on numerous occasions and feeling like their back isn’t improving the way they wanted. They then start to worry about their long term health, what will they feel like when they get older, will they be able to manage? And they begin to think that this back pain is what they have to live with forever.

‍‍‍‍

Because relying on medication for managing pain can be so helpful but is it really something people want to rely on for the rest of their lives? And so this is why I chose to work with people with lower back pain.

‍‍‍‍

There’s nothing like working with someone and being told “I haven’t taken my pain killers for my back, my back is feeling so great and it’s all down to you.” 

Of course it’s not all down to me, it’s the individuals that make the change and follow the exercises that bring the results, it’s the job or both of us working together as a team. I feel truly blessed with my students, they are grateful for me and i’m grateful to them!

‍‍‍‍

I love what I do, I love working with people, I love seeing people achieve their goals

I’m now offering PEMF sessions to help with those aches and pains

Black Friday offer

Is back pain getting in the way of your favourite activities? A sport, perhaps? Or just being able to enjoy yourself as a young parent? 

Today, I want to share the good news with you. It is possible to live the life you deserved.  I was able to do it. And my client, Dave, is starting to live his life in his own terms too. Let me tell you his story.

Dave felt like an old man in his early 40s.

Dave is only forty years old but already feels like he’s in his 70’s. He has been enduring pain and discomfort on his lower back and at the back of his legs and knees for as long as he can remember.

In the last 3 years, the pain became more regular – putting Dave in constant episodes of pain. He barely plays golf anymore, a sport he loved doing every other day. He could not even carry around and enjoy playing with his four-year-old kid. 

The final straw? It’s that time when he can no longer function properly at work. Could Pilates be the solution?Countless therapies and massages after, he still struggled with his lower back pain. 

“I have tried countless therapies and sports massages. I even spent around a thousand dollars on Osteopath – but nothing worked!”

Dave finally got motivated to join a Pilates class but kept on postponing because he was scared and intimidated to be the only man in the class. So, he tried to do exercises at home but was not getting the results he wanted.

Dave wants to be free of pain in a year, play with his kid again and continue to play golf – like any man in his early 40s should be able to do with ease. He was on the verge of giving up when we met. And our sessions are starting to turn his life around. 

Just like Dave, I know you have been putting off opportunities, saying no to things you love, and probably been struggling with mundane tasks like bending over to tie your shoes because you’re afraid it will trigger your back pain to act up.

I know that kind of life is HARD. And struggling to find a solution is remarkably HARDER.

But today, I urge you to not give up. Just like Dave, give yourself one more chance to free yourself from back pain. 

I encourage you to to book a class today and I have a special offer for Black Friday. First class for only £5 week commencing 30th October – 5th November 2023.

Break the Cycle of Aches and Pains: Simple Steps to Improve Your Health and Mobility


Sitting for extended periods can lead to tightness and discomfort in your hips, back, shoulders, and neck. This cycle of aches and pains can restrict your lifestyle and even pose a risk of injury. Fortunately, there are straightforward actions you can take to break this cycle and prevent it from occurring in the first place.

  1. Move Regularly: Stand up and take short walks around your office or front room. Set a timer as a reminder. If you are sat at a desk try these upper body exercises you can do seated or standing.
  2. Stretch: Sitting for prolonged periods can cause tightness in your hip flexors, which can affect other muscles. Stretching these muscles can help prevent future injuries.
  3. Be Active: Look for opportunities to incorporate movement into your daily routine. Exercise, take walks, use the stairs, park farther away, and find reasons to keep moving. This not only relieves tight muscles but also boosts your metabolism. Check out my Pilates and Yoga classes here.

By following these four simple steps consistently for one week, you’ll be amazed at the improvement in how you feel.

Pilates for Back pain

When you are in pain, you may feel scared to exercise but if we manage to do this safely, not only can it reduce pain, it can help you move better. 

The more you move, the better your body and back will function. Things you find difficult doing in your everyday activities have the potential to become pain free or at least less painful.

What if you could use a proven and tested, step by step exercise system, helping you to reduce the risk of long term medical care❓  👏

What if you could go to a class with a teacher who specialises in back pain and go at your own pace, in an environment where you feel safe❓ 

What if you knew the exact gentle low impact exercises (no jumping which can cause the back to jolt) to do where you didn’t have to sweat?

What if you could reduce the impact that back pain has on your life. Loading the dishwasher, getting your socks on in the morning and getting out of bed would be so much easier❓ 

Have you thought about a Pilates class to help with all of these? We have a class in Keynsham Mondays 5.45pm, Tuesdays 9.30am and Wednesday 9.30am.

Hip Mobility

Hip mobility is an essential aspect of overall physical fitness and health. It is the ability of the hip joints to move freely and comfortably in all directions. It is important for maintaining good posture and preventing lower back pain. Tight hips can also lead to discomfort and a limited range of motion during exercise or daily activities.

Fortunately, there are many exercises that can help improve hip mobility. Here are five exercises you can try:

Incorporating these exercises into your workout routine can help improve hip mobility and prevent discomfort and injury. Remember to start with gentle movements and gradually increase the intensity as you feel comfortable.

If you enjoyed these we have spaces on beginners Yoga Thursdays at 7pm and Stretch and Tone on Tuesdays at 10.00pm.

Feeling unmotivated?

It’s not uncommon to experience a lack of motivation, and it can be frustrating when you have things you want to accomplish but can’t seem to muster up the energy to do so. When faced with this challenge, it’s essential to remember that motivation is not always easy to come by, and it’s okay to feel demotivated at times.

One approach that can help is to break down your tasks into smaller, more manageable steps. By doing so, you can create a sense of progress and accomplishment that can help build momentum and increase motivation. Even the smallest actions, like writing a to-do list or taking a five-minute break to stretch, can provide a sense of accomplishment and help build momentum towards larger tasks.

Another helpful strategy is to focus on your goals and the reasons why you want to accomplish them. This can provide a sense of purpose and remind you of the value of the work you’re doing. Try to visualize what achieving your goals will look and feel like, and use that as motivation to take action.

If you’re still struggling, it may be helpful to take a break and do something enjoyable or relaxing. Sometimes, stepping away from a task can provide clarity and help you return to it with renewed energy and motivation. You could also try talking to a friend or colleague for support or accountability, or even seek professional help from a therapist or coach.

In summary, getting motivated can be difficult, but by breaking tasks into smaller steps, focusing on your goals, taking breaks, seeking support, and being kind to yourself, you can increase your chances of success. Remember that motivation is not always constant, and it’s okay to take things one step at a time.
