Instructors

CJ
CJ’s career has crossed back and forth within the fitness industry for more than 15 years through strength and conditioning training, management, nutrition, program development, consulting and rehabilitation.

With a strong understanding of what it means to be at a physical disadvantage through his own experiences of sporting injuries, accidents and rehabilitation.

Each client has different requirements, and with the understanding of the effects that daily life has on health, CJ’s holistic approach with clients is one of keeping it simple and honest. Both with setting realistic goals, and knowing when to push boundaries to get results, whether it be for professional sports, life goals or general health and well being.

Being fit is not just a matter of physical conditioning. Achievements through exercise can boost confidence, and be a great foundation for an overall positive mindset in life.

Style
It depends on the energy of the session. Both CJ and I like to get a sense of our how clients are feeling. That said, I like to mix it up. Sometimes sessions are a little more focused with a moderate pace, sometimes they have more flow, but they always have a chuckle. Regular clients know I absolutely empathise with how challenging Pilates (which is my primary focus) can be. I like clients to be challenged and to recognise why they are being challenged, but as always, practice safely.

Through Pilates, I am passionate about the benefits it can deliver to clients in a focused, yet enjoyable class format. You can expect to be challenged, encouraged and develop a greater body awareness.

Experience
Sedentary work environments, poor eating habits (leading to lack of energy and motivation), muscular injuries related to sitting, running and training.

Focus
Pilates Semi-Private, Private and Corporate Training.

Pilates is an exercise of many layers. The concentration not only connects the mind and body, but also brings deeper awareness of how are muscles are performing through simple movements. This also translates into every day life. Regular Pilates practise can increase pelvic and spinal stability, correct muscles imbalances and improve posture.

Pilates is suitable for all levels, with programs also available chiropractic, osteopathic and physiotherapy clients where directed.
