After having worked with some of the best bodies in London through her demanding reformer Pilates classes and 1:1 sessions, and through detailed nutritional and exercise based research Hollie realised that through a combination of different fitness disciplines results could be gained far faster than by solely using one method of training. From this ‘The Pilates PT Method’ was born. Suitable for all abilities The Pilates PT Method is a great way to become your strongest, healthiest, happiest self.
