Hi I’m Emily
I began my career in personal training about 4 and a half years ago, I have always been very involved in fitness and healthy eating but after having my daughter I was overweight and felt unfit and like I didn’t recognize my own body so I began a self-motivated training and healthy eating regime.
I am trained in cardio-vascular fitness, advanced weight techniques and body resistance training.
I choose to specialize in Pilates after suffering from knee problems and lower back pain from an injury I wanted to find a more therapeutic approach to exercise that would complement the intensive exercise that I also enjoy doing.
The more I learnt the more interested I became and this inspired me to work with others helping them to achieve what they wanted.
I now offer personal guidance in Pilates for ladies in Malvern Worcestershire.
What is Pilates?
Pilates looks at the body as a whole how one muscle and bone are connected to all the others and how they relate and function together as a whole, It is a therapeutic approach to exercise which aims to improve your posture, to strengthen your deep abdominal and lower back muscles that are responsible for supporting and protecting your back and the main bulk of your body.
What can Pilates do for you?
The principles and techniques that you learn in your exercise routines should be taken into your everyday living which will improve your quality of life. From washing up, bending and lifting, sitting at a computer and doing your favourite sport.
Pilates is a way to protect your back from injury, to help improve present back pain. It will also improve posture and your confidence and appearance.
Pilates is a combination of strength and stretching exercises performed slowly with precision, control and flow.
Who would benefit from Pilates?
Everyone can benefit from Pilates from professional athletes to ballerinas helping them to improve strength, technique and co-ordination. Through to pregnant women who need to maintain good posture and strength through out there pregnancy right into their daily routines with baby and toddler.
Pilates is also excellent for people recovering from injury or elderly people helping to improve their range of movement and their strength giving them quality of life and a sense of renewed independence
If you suffer from lower or upper back pain you will know how it rules your life and how debilitating it can be at times, constant visits to doctors, physios and chyropractioners. Often the pain is caused by short tight muscles and long weak muscles these will pull on your spine and bones causing miss alignment and weakness coupled with weak core muscles this will lead to constant back problems if not addressed.
How I would tailor a program specifically for you.
I begin by taking photos of you; I then observe your posture looking at anatomical points on your body. I will also ask you question about your lifestyle any injuries you have, pain you may be suffering and aims and goals you would like to achieve. from all this information I gather I will select the appropriate exercises for you.
I then guide you through your routine ensuring that you are performing correctly. It is essential with Pilates that the technique is perfect that is what I will be checking for. I often hand out basic homework to be done which will be a combination of specific stretches and strength routines which take no longer than 20 minutes roughly.
