KATE GRAY

Director Fitskool Registered Nurse, APPI Pilates Teacher, & Certified Foundation Training Instructor, Womens Wellness Coach

I am passionate about the power of movement and the therapeutic benefits it offers.

Following a 20 year nursing career I had a back injury (more than once actually) and being a woman of a certain age too, I wanted to share some of my knowledge about health and movement, so  Fitskool was created.

And now we have served hundreds of clients over nearly 10 years. Many are still with us!

Pilates: amazing in all of its wonderful styles and approaches is now merged into most our offerings to facilitate long term, pain free, functional movement. It has for me – and for lots of our clients.

I love helping people get out of back pain. In June 2015, I travelled to California to qualify as an instructor in Foundation Training. This ground breaking new programme has been absolutely pivotal in helping me, and our clients find back strength, pain free movement and quality of life.

Quite simply – it’s been an amazing tool!

We are delighted to be offering this programme locally and nationally.  Please contact us to find out more.

We know we can help and we love to share that with you!

As a Foundation Training instructor, I know from my own personal experience that it works!

It has made an incredible difference to me and my bulging disc L3/4 –  So I travelled to Florida to learn from  Dr Eric Goodman.  I am now fully qualified and ready to share it with you.

VICKI GERRARD

REPs registered Pilates Teacher & Pilates for Spinal Surgery (APPI)

Since having my two children, I have found Pilates to be the perfect body conditioner. Its  great relief from general back and shoulder pain caused by pregnancies, carrying babies and all of the associated ‘stuff’!  Plus, it’s a brilliant way to squeeze in that little bit of ‘me time’

I have a level three Industry Award & Diploma in Teaching Pilates, CPD in Pilates for Spinal surgeries and a qualification in nutrition. I plan to specialise in Pre & Post natal, pelvic floor and back health.

I am studying for the certification in sports massage too.

I currently offer small group classes enabling you to receive more specialised individual attention – plus a bit of a natter and general support within our  informal groups!

FRANCES STEPHENS

Body Control Pilates teacher, Elaine Petrone Method Teacher, Nordic Walking Instructor – Womens Wellness Coach

I trained as a Body Control Pilates Teacher in 2000 and I have been teaching Pilates ever since!

With my husband Dave, I run a large and well established Nordic Walking group in the New Forest.

In 2012 I travelled to the USA to complete the Elaine Petrone Miracle Ball Method Certification.

This is a revolutionary non-exercise method. The balls are designed to help release muscle tension and to help you rediscover your body’s ability to heal itself.

The workshops are regular locally and within events with Fitskool.
