Name: Ruth – Pilates Chelsfield
Position: Pilates Instructor
Qualifications: Stott Pilates mathwork, Stott Pilates Reformers, First aid at work, Public liability insurance.
Information: My journey in fitness started pretty much at the turn of the century training to be a gym instructor in my spare time but then went on to do a diploma in Personal training and Sports massage with Premier International, followed by Stott Pilates Mat qualification.
My love of pilates led me to specialise in this discipline training on the Reformer, Cadillac, Barrels and Chair, working alongside Osteopaths and Physiotherapists and my continued training has included Injuries and Special Populations, Practical Fascia Release, Pilates for Multiple Sclerosis and Biomechanical Coaching. I’m always looking for new ways to help my clients get the most out of their classes using foam rollers, fitness circles, toning balls and resistance bands.
Added to this I now teach Nordic Walking and lead walks almost on a daily basis as it complements pilates putting all the basic principles into practice and works on balance and stability.
