✨ Jo’s Pilates classes manage to provide the unique blend of exercise while being restorative. I always leave her classes feeling like I have woken my body up. Challenging it to strengthen and tone, while at the same time discovering the areas where I am tight and the best positions to relieve any restrictions. However above all, I leave her class with a deep sense of relaxation, peace and positivity ✨

✨Jo has been providing Saltus financial services with 2 classes per week during lockdown and it has been a huge hit.

In the HIIT workouts on a Monday lunchtime Jo gets the blood flowing, heart pumping and is very enthusiastic whilst working us very hard. Jo also provides alternative options to those less energetic folks.

Wednesday’s class is a lovely stretching yoga flow, it releases all the aches and pains of sitting at a desk for long periods, as well as all the aches and pains from Monday’s class

I love that our company has thought about their staff’s wellbeing and has provided the wonderful talents of Jo, they could not have chosen anyone better! Jo’s energy is infectious. ✨

Pregnancy and post natal 121

Pregnancy and post natal 121 session for mums to be and those who need support gaining their confidence after baby is born to return to exercise.

✨ I started 1-2-1 sessions with Jo about a year ago, shortly before I got pregnant with my second child - baby Alex. Alex is now three months old. Jo worked with me patiently and supportively through my pregnancy, designing classes that would keep me fit, strong and flexible while pregnant. She redesigned things on the spot as necessary to accommodate the growing list of aches and pains that developed through pregnancy. As this was my second child, I am able to compare my experience with a previous pregnancy - working with Jo was phenomenal, physically and mentally I was in a much stronger place at through this pregnancy. I continued to be able to play with my daughter, chasing her around the house and the playground right through this pregnancy. My recovery after Alex was born was so quick - I felt strong and flexible. I've started back doing Pilates with Jo and am really enjoying working with her to rebuild my strength. I think EVERYONE should do Pilates through pregnancy - it made the world of difference to me. And Jo made this super easy and was a continual source of support and encouragement throughout. She is AMAZING. ✨

I particularly love how Jo relates to us all. She seems to instinctively know what we need. We are never judged or pressured-only encouraged and motivated.I am stronger physically and mentally, more flexible and my husband tells me i walk more easily too

Joanne

I cannot thank Jo enough. The last year would have been so much more difficult without her motivation and positive mindset. I know i am fitter and stronger, mentally and physically because of Jo’s encouragement and support- Jo has created a supportive community to be very proud of

Gavin

After my PT moved away it took me 5 years and quite a few trainers to find another PT who really knew their job. Jo is a fantastic trainer and saved my body. Jo always has a cheery disposition and with her extensive knowledge, tailors all sessions to suit my needs
