Kate started doing Pilates ten years ago to improve her performance as a runner and quickly found that it provided enormous benefits in terms of strength, mobility, and endurance.
Inspired by her trainers she qualified as a Level 3 Mat Pilates Instructor (YMCA) and have been teaching since then.
Kate is passionate about helping people build their strength, flexibility, and confidence, and believes that Pilates is an excellent tool for doing so.
