As a fully qualified Pilates instructor I enjoy including elements of all levels of Pilates from Basic to Advanced. No previous experience is required as I teach each movement and sometimes you simply follow my lead. There will always be challenges for those who want to take things to the next level. You can work at a level that suits you and be completely relaxed that there will be no pressure to impress. The music is as varied as the exercises and aims to calmly motivate you.
This was the original class that started Tessfit. Based on aerobics it is the backbone for all the other classes which stemmed from here. A combination of exercises to music using a variety of equipment or simply your own body weight. It is a very relaxed class and always has some fun elements included.
This is the next step up from Body Logic in terms of fitness levels. Each week the focus will be on either strength or cardio and sometimes a combination of the two. Intervals of all description will be experienced. Everyone is welcome, as building your fitness level is the purpose and we all have to start somewhere. Rests can be taken and there are also adaptations for those who need them.
The newest class to be added to Tessfit. It fills the gap for existing clients who have tried a Body Logic class and found it a bit too much. Pilates clients who would like to add something extra for toning and/or weight-loss. Newcomers will find a fun relaxed class that I instruct and assist. It is the perfect starting point.
This is suitable for anyone who feels more comfortable exercising without the worry about having to get up and down from the floor. There will be no impact movements as the aim is to increase muscle and bone strength which in turn will improve balance and general functional ability. This is a very friendly and relaxed class with plenty of fun.
Getting on well with your personal trainer is vital if success is to be achieved. I have a friendly and positive personality with a strong desire to help people, which will be evident during your sessions.
I take sessions wherever you feel most comfortable. Your home, the studio where the classes are held or outside in the fresh air. It is your session so you get to choose. I will work at the correct level for you in order to give you confidence and the ability to progress at a steady pace. Each session will be different, variety keeps you interested and motivated.
