I started doing Pilates because I had become aware that my body had become stiff and lacked flexibility despite being in good general health. I was nervous about starting high impact exercise at my age and Pilates seemed to have just the right balance of stretching and muscle toning and 3 years on I know I made the right choice, especially with Anita as teacher. In my opinion Anita' s knowledge and understanding of human physiology is outstanding and she applies that expertise in everything she demonstrates and the advice she gives,she is very firm when she spots you doing something which could have an adverse effect! Since doing these classes I have a much more flexible toned body and feel so much better,thank you Anita!
Having suffered with back problems for many years (osteoarthritis, slipped disc and osteopenia) I utilised the first lockdown to find a Pilates class. I liked the sound of small classes and Anita seemed very qualified for what I felt I needed.
The class turned out to be exactly what I needed but soon realised I both wanted and needed more. Anita explained in an easy to understand way how to improve my bone density but I was loath to join a class, as I was scared! So I embarked on 1 to 1 training which is great. The sessions are tailored to my needs and Anita is very flexible and will often change things during the session as issues arise. I know I have a way to go but with Anita’s continuing support I know I will achieve my ultimate goal which is to be stronger and more flexible. The results so far (in under a year) are amazing!
I’ve also started the stretch and relax session on a Friday afternoon and it’s such a great way to set you up for the weekend and ensure a great night’s sleep!
Couldn’t recommend her more highly.
I really enjoy the classes I do with Anita. She offers a good variety of exercises, something for everyone and every ability. Anita is an excellent teacher and her years of experience means that she can offer just the right exercise, we are stretched, but safe. She is full of curiosity about fitness and keeps up to date with new methods and ideas. I feel so lucky to have found Anita.
Anita is a superb Pilates teacher. Well informed, very attentive to her pupils - you can't hoodwink Anita on zoom, the lessons have a good flow, never boring and a solid progression whilst cater for a wide range of abilities. Anita's approach is a holistic counter for the aging process- would highly recommend
Anita's weekly classes are great. Slightly different each week, they work on all or many parts of the body. Each exercise is only done a few times which means I don't get bored or find it too much strain: we are soon on to something else. I feel much better afterwards. I am sure it helps with mobility. Anita is very knowledgeable and caring and fits the classes to all the pupils.
I started attending one Pilates class a week at Anita's studio in Sale in September 2019. Pilates had been recommended to me for my weak lower back and I wanted a small class size which is what Anita offered. I was a complete beginner when I started, and over the past 1 1/2 years Anita has moved us on, in small gentle steps so that we are now level 2. My lower back has vastly improved, and my general mobility, core strength and even my posture have also improved. Anita is a hugely knowledgeable and experienced teacher. She motivates people to achieve what they can, and as the classes are generally around 4 people, the tuition is almost individual. I would definitely recommend her classes.
I joined Anita's classes just over a year ago. I'm awaiting hip surgery and have found the pilates classes brilliant for maintaining my mobility and relieving pain. I love the classes as Anita always builds each exercise up through different levels and takes time to check you are safe and within your abilities, whilst providing a bit of a challenge too. Every class is so different - there's never any danger of getting bored! And having the classes recorded so you can revisit later is so helpful. Can heartily recommend especially if you are looking for a trainer committed to helping you age healthily and happily
My osteoporosis was diagnosed in late 2017. Although I had no physical symptoms I knew that I needed to do more than the regular walking that I was already doing. It took several months to find Anita via a recommendation, so glad that I did! After an initial consultation I booked six 1-1 sessions (she was very flexible in fitting them in with my visits to another place in Sale) where she devised a 'keep your bones strong and healthy' holiday regime. I love Anita's approach to everything, her energy, drive, enthusiasm and passion for what she does, she does with humour. I had joined a local gym when I was first diagnosed (I live in Chorley) but began to feel that what I had been advised to do wasn't quite right. I asked Anita if she would be willing to come over and devise a proper schedule for me. Over a period of 2-3 years she has been with me to the gym and tweeked and changed my programme to maximise the benefit for me. We also revisited my 'holiday programme' and she added a video for me to follow which has been invaluable, especially during the lockdowns when I've not been able to go to the gym. I would have no hesitation to recommend Anita, she excels at what she does and has hugely helped me to keep my osteoporosis at bay.
After doing Pilates for several years with a number of different well qualified teachers I was looking for a good Pilates teacher in Sale. I found and joined Sale Pilates, and I am so glad that I did. Anita is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience. In small group classes, in her studio or online, she is able to ensure that all the exercises are done safely and correctly, whilst also accommodating people's individual needs. Anita is passionate about improving our health and enjoyment of life, especially as we mature! This all sounds very serious, but Anita's commitment and bubbly personality make the lessons interesting and fun! I have certainly noticed that I have far fewer aches and pains, and feel stronger and more flexible. If you have been toying with the idea of trying Pilates I definitely encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to learn with Anita. At Sale Pilates Anita offers a variety of classes, and maybe, like me, you will end up also trying, and enjoying, Anita's 'Step' and 'Low Impact Aerobic' classes. All great ways to get fitter and stay healthy.
I have been doing Pilates for several years and last year I decided to try Anita’s classes. I was looking for something more personalised, something that would challenge me more and help me become stronger. With Anita’s classes I found exactly what I wanted! Due to small group sizes and her amazing memory of everyone’s needs (injuries, conditions and different experience levels) the exercises feel personalised, almost like having a 1 to 1 session. Since the start of the pandemic I have been doing the Anchor Point Pilates class, which is great for improving strength in a safe and interesting way. I am amazed by how Anita manages to see if you are doing the exercises correctly when this is an online class! If you think you can cheat and a have a lazy posture, you are wrong! I would certainly recommend the Anchor Point Pilates class for all experience levels.
