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. We also have specialists in clinical Pilates for the treatment of low back pain and other injuries/chronic pain.
Private lessons can be delivered in our Wandsworth studio or we are happy to visit you at home or in your workplace, we cover the following South West London areas: Wandsworth, Clapham, Balham, Battersea, Earlsfield, Southfields, Wimbledon, Putney, Barnes and Fulham. Home visits may incur a small additional charge. We also provide Pilates classes.
My experience with Vanessa was fantastic. Vanessa is very resourceful, flexible and experienced in her approach to personal training. Moreover, she is able to motivate you in the way that suits you best! I highly recommend working with ICE fitness instructors.
I went to ICE Fitness to get me into good shape for my wedding – build muscle and reduce body fat. The team are great and Lea kept me motivated throughout to get me to my goal. Thank you!
Lea was great and I felt informed on all my exercises after the three sessions and confident to do them on my own
Ice fitness is simply amazing! The studio is always clean, the equipment is great and most of all the trainers are fantastic. I have been training with Lea for over 4 years now. Lea is extremely professional, has a real interest in women’s health and always adapts her sessions based on my specific needs (which might change along the way!). She was also my best ally during my 3rd pregnancy and made me strong for my planned c-section which was key to my fast recovery. I could not recommend her more, Lea is amazing!
Fantastic space, friendly and knowledgable trainers. I came to ICE after fracturing my wrist and learning that I have low bone density. I had to find a training program that would challenge me while keeping my spine safe. Lea has provided that and more. I am getting stronger and always feel completely safe. Highly recommended!
I was looking for a local PT to help build up strength, fitness and confidence following some health issues and came across ICE Fitness. Lea is a friendly face and has made me want to get up at 6.30am and put my exercise gear on, something I never wanted to do in the past. Lea adapts sessions and keeps them interesting. We have good chats and Lea gives great nutrition and lifestyle advice at the same time. I am a slow work in progress but we are getting there gradually

The space is just right for 1 to 1 sessions and is well equipped. I am a slow work in progress but we are getting there gradually. Thanks Lea !
I love the personal, tailored programme which has radically improved my flexibility and fitness. I’m a 60+ with energy now – thank you!
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!
