Hi, I’m Hollie, it’s so nice to meet you!
Over the last 10 years I have enjoyed the most incredible career in the fitness industry. After a short (and stressful) career as a pastry chef in London, I started my fitness journey as a receptionist in a London reformer Pilates studio and instantly fell in love with Pilates. I loved that Pilates focussed on how the body functions and moves, rather than how it looks or what it weighs. This emphasis on performance has inspired my whole career in Pilates and is why I have never bored of teaching it. After 6 months I progressed to studio manager before the instructors encouraged me to study with STOTT Pilates and I trained as an instructor myself.
I spent many years teaching Reformer and Mat Pilates and teaching thousands of classes across London, before being promoted to the head trainer of two London studios. In 2015 I started my own business, Pilates PT, and began opening my own studios across London. I now own studios in south London, teach Pilates across the globe for hotels such as The Royal Mansour and The Mandarin Oriental, and have been lucky enough to write a book and launch online offerings such as The Bump Plan and The Pilates PT Method.
It is really important to me that everything we do at Pilates PT showcases the positive relationship we can all have with exercise. Over the years I have seen the damage caused to women’s self-esteem and mental health by diet culture. I will never be a part of that industry and hope that we can reverse some of its effects. I don’t want my daughter Freya growing up in a world that encourages women to abuse their bodies to stay thin.
Exercise is a powerful tool to be used to promote better mental and physical health, and I’ll do everything I can to help you use it wisely. We look forward to educating you about your body and it’s endless potential either in studio or online.
