Hello from Fitskool -
Welcome to 2022


Wonderful thoughts & great advice from Dr Chatterjee 🙏


I have decided to take a full social media break until the end of the year. I am lucky to have a loving family around me and I am keen to spend quality undistracted time with them in the final weeks of the year.

This is the first year in 5 years that I do not have a new book coming out between Xmas and New Year and I want to take advantage of this and fully switch off. i appreciate this is not for everyone but, for me, it really helps.

There is a lot of fear in the world at the moment. Fear hijacks our rational brain and allows our emotional brain to run the show. Many people are falling out with the people close to them at the moment because of different views on a variety of different topics.

Many in society seem to be losing the ability to respectfully disagree with others but it is a very important skill. Progress only happens in a meaningful way when we are able to listen to others, make a genuine attempt to hear their perspective, and move on regardless of whether they share the same opinion or not. This is a skill we should all be looking to cultivate.

Fear, hatred and distrust are not going to be helpful in the long run. It will only create more bitterness and division. The only meaningful way forward is with love, compassion and respect.

Have a wonderful end to the year however you choose to spend it. And, for those of you who feel lonely, especially at this time of year, I am sending you lots of love.

See you in 2022 🙏🏾

Pull up on the Cadillac demonstrated perfectly by Alison @unravel_yoga - In our Pilates space we never allow the mind to prevent the body from achieving everything it is capable of - and more 😊. Here we see a whole body movement assisted by breath-work: spinal mobility, hip extension/flexion, glute/hamstring activation & release, shoulder stability, upper body and back strength and a great deal of mind/body confidence! Brilliant 👏🏼👏🏼

Fabulous spinal extension from our girls in today’s Tower class - as always making this exercise; that challenges spinal mobility, postural control and upper back, shoulder and hip mobility look so easy 👀 👏🏼💪😍

100 Squats a day in November

What a great challenge- a great functional exercise you can do anywhere while supporting vital research 💪😊

100 Squats a day in November


Good for the soul: the beautiful Devon countryside and what better way to explore this stunning region brimming with nature’s gifts, than on a bicycle? peaceful except for birdsong, sheep’s baas and a breeze tickling the leaves, the air is fresh, the grass so green, the sky so blue the sunshine so warm. There are indeed lots of ups and downs and winding tracks to challenge the body, thus building stamina, strength and cardiovascular health. With any exercise or training plan it’s good to stop and rest every now and then - in fact, it’s essential. Recovery and a change of scene provides time to clear the mind too and this is as vital as the movement itself. Getting into nature is perfect for building health and as Florence Nightingale asserted “Nature alone heals“😊.

Our studio on a sunny morning-we are proud of the space we created 😊and environment really matters as Florence Nightingale said: brilliance of colour, light and form among other essentials that nature provides: sunshine! These things not only affect the mind but also the body - so we are more than movement; we connect and support people in all manner of ways which helps us all keep healthy in mind and body ❤️


Cracking examples of how to make a challenging exercise look easy! We need this: spinal control & abdominal strength, hip extension, hamstring strength and shoulder mobility, strong girls utilising the brilliant push thru bars with spring resistance on our Pilates vertical frames - FABULOUS!


When your rear body is strong and powerful you will look and FEEL even more amazing from all angles! How to utilise Pilates to strengthen the back body, build spinal health, pain free posture and engage the posterior chain of muscles that help hold us upright and power everyday functional movement. Here pulling ropes on our high quality @merrithew Reformers, these girls are FABULOUS making it look sooo easy 👏🏼🔥


Amazing girls 💪💪💪control & balance on our super class reformers on a REALLY LIGHT SPRING 👏🏼🔥🔥🔥 fabulous!

Amaze yourself on the Pilates Tower -


My happy place, and an absolutely stunning day for a ride from Lymore past Keyhaven and into Milford for a sea swim 😊 there is no where quite this - how lucky we are to be here Lawn -break &r -air


Exploring what the body CAN and DOES do is vital for all of us after many months of pandemic powerlessness - we must BREATH and MOVE and facilitate the body to continue its natural, healing mission. Here improving the strength of the entire back body; those muscles and structures that hold us up all day and facilitate pain free, functional movement. This “Anchored back extension” from @foundationtraining does it perfectly as always, on the mat with no props required - while utilising light resistance performing on the long box, additionally highlights to me the genius of the exercise and it feels great! 💪 - one really needs to experience the power of the postures taught in detail - find a qualified instructor and look up @foundationtraining to learn more 👍


The spine houses and protects the central nervous system - it’s no wonder persistent stress emotional turbulence, anxiety and uncertainty often present in combination with back pain, joint pain and tense musculature. Pilates on the half Cadillac/tower from facilitates this delicious mobilising, lengthening & creation of space between the joints - nourishing the entire system inside and out and moreover, is achievable and vital at any age 💪😉We look forward to class tomorrow 19th June @fitskooluk
