The Pilates method is a technique that was developed by physical trainer Joseph H Pilates 1920s America
Pilates teaches you to work from the inside-out, focusing on the ‘core’ (the deep abdominal and spinal muscles), it can increase control and stability around the spine and pelvis. This is the body’s ‘power house’, a strong core results in greater economy of movement and can help reduce the risk of injury especially in the lower back. Other benefits of Pilates can be improved muscle tone, flexibility & posture.
Pilates has become very popular in recent years for a number of good reasons: it is a relaxing form of exercise which is very important in today’s hectic society, it can deliver noticeable results and is one of the few forms of exercise that can really change your body’s structure and shape. Pilates is also a popular choice for the rehabilitation of back pain and injury with many physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals taking training in, or adapting exercises from the Pilates method.
Here at ICE Fitness we offer private tuition in Pilates or you can pair up with a friend; private lessons offer a more personal approach, working to improve your particular posture type and correct your muscle imbalances, and involve both mat and equipment based exercises.

Personalised and highly effective
Clint is amazingly good at keeping the session interesting as well as listening to your body and tailoring it each week. He is full of things to think about away from the gym as well so really beneficial and he was always understanding when i hadn’t been healthy. You can see he is generally enthused by all things health so make sure you ask him what his latest ideas are. Also great for people like my wife who is not very sporty.
Small boutique one 2 one gym, nowhere to hide!
Great people available at your convenience and ready and able to encourage you to achieve your goals.
I’ve tried to do training on my own many times and never thought I’ll enjoy personal training so much. I like the studio and the environment at ICE. Lea makes my sessions very enjoyable and I love training with her.
I don’t like to train on my own, so I was looking for a PT that will help me to get into shape before summer. I love the environment at ICE fitness, everyone is very friendly and Lea did an amazing job with getting me back into shape!
Clint is a fantastic. He helped me increase mobility and flexibility following a slipped disc in my lower back. Over time and with great care, he rebuilt my fitness and core strength.
