"I've been doing weights and Crossfit training for many years. I have always considered myself strong and fit until I was diagnosed with a painful slipped disc last year. I then had to slow my training considerably and even stop running. Every session was painful.
I decided, with an open mind, to try one to one Pilates with Diane two months ago.
She took me to a new level of core training, which I wasn't familiar with before and also showed me exercises which I could do at home. She designed our sessions according to my needs and was always very attentive: the sessions were always interesting and challenging.
One day I realised that I'm absolutely pain-free, what a great feeling! And after only 5 sessions! I recently started jogging, and can finally do Deadlifts and Squats without having any pain in my lower back.
Diane is brilliant and I unreservedly recommend her''
