Chartered Activity and Health Practitioner
Low Back Pain Exercise Specialist
Due to my disability, I was never encouraged to do sport at school, initially training as an accountant and working in finance systems.
I have always had a love of dancing, water sports and cycling, eventually discovering Aerobics in 1990 when I made my decision to train as a fitness instructor.
I first trained in Pilates and Yoga when a client (and physiotherapist) went through early menopause and the group asked me to find something that she could continue to participate in. Since that date, I have made it my goal to help those who might not be able to exercise in a conventional group exercise class.
I love to teach smaller classes, where I can give individual exercise adaptations to those who need it and where I know the names and limitations of each class participant. The classes are a community within our community. The chair-based classes are as much about social interaction and support as the exercise.
I help people who struggle to exercise due to age, injury, illness, disability, or obesity.

“I can highly recommend Kim's classes. I have health issues which makes most sort of exercise difficult for me. However, I have now gained much more movement and can participate reasonably well. I also enjoy it.
Kim caters for individual needs within a class environment without it being detrimental to the rest of the participants. Her classes are also fun!
I have been doing Pilates with Kim for a long time. She's been absolutely brilliant- especially since I have some health / disability which she has helped me overcome. Thanks Kim, looking forward to the new term 😁

“Kim's Pilates classes are just the best. She explains everything thoroughly and is extremely kind and patient. I used to suffer a lot with neck and back pain but have no problems since going to her classes.”
