What our Clients say about us…

Yvonne Pettigrew – Group Class Client: (February 2014 – Today)

——————————————————————————–

“I thought I would really struggle with Pilates but, as I was losing my balance and abdominal control owing to my MS – diagnosed in May 2013, I decided it was probably my best shot to try and regain some control. It’s been fantastic! I feel really well supported by Amanda to keep trying, even when some of the exercises feel way beyond me, and with that encouragement I’ve been so surprised to find that I have been able to achieve so much. I always feel so much better after a class – stretched but happy!!”

Francis Christie – Group Class Client: (April 2010 – Today)

“3 years ago, I had three major health problems and I realised I had ‘given-in’ and accepted I was getting ‘old’.

I decided to fight back. One of my health issues, was that I had permanent damage to my back. I began with Pilates classes and then took up cross-fit training and rowing. Last July, I tried running half-a-mile. This year, I have run three 10Km races and the Birmingham half-marathon.”

Paul Little – Group Class Client: (May 2012 – Today) Consistent Marathon Winner

Paul incorporates ‘Me..time’ Pilates into his training routine and says “My running has definitely benefited from adding Pilates to my training schedule – regular Pilates sessions have not only helped me improve my times, but they have also finally helped me start winning some races this year”

Julian Masters – Group Class Client: (Nov 2009 – Today)

“I recommend that anyone who can manage at least one class a week should make the effort and do so. My posture is better and the problems I had with my neck pain have diminished. I have gained much more body control, on occasions I still slump in front of the PC, but at least I am aware of it and correct my posture when I realise! I had tried Pilates in large classes and found that these large classes do not work as the instructor simply was not aware of all the mistakes I was making and couldn’t ensure that I was performing the exercises correctly. I ended up with more neck ache than I started with! I wish that I had discovered Me..time 20 years ago!.”

Will Hickman – Private One2one Client: (March 2011 – Today)

——————————————————————————–

“I have spent many years with a fast-paced lifestyle, working in a stressful job on the computer. I developed bad posture (round shoulders, tight lower back), and I finally ended up with a prolapsed / slipped disc. I had sciatica for a whole year, with excruciating pain day and night. I tried to find relief and went to see all sorts of specialists (my GP, physio, massage therapist, osteopath, remedial Pilates & chiropractor), but none of them could help with a long-term solution. A friend finally recommended Me..time Pilates and I admit I was skeptical at first, but even after the very first one-to-one session, I found that the pain had eased off and now it’s disappeared completely since I’ve been doing the exercises on a regular basis. Amanda has showed me how to correct my posture, and got the right muscles working to support my vertebrae in the lower part of my back and fixed my round shoulder problem, which in turn helped me to stand up straight, which meant that my disc wasn’t compressing anymore and I have been pain free ever since. I would recommend Me..time Pilates to anyone with any kind of back problem or injury – they really understand how the body works, they’re the best I could find! The unique method of combining Pilates with personal training insured quick recovery of my problem – a real miracle for me.”

Sarah Keates – Private One2one Training Client: (2012 – Moved Overseas in April 2013)

——————————————————————————–

At my first meeting with Amanda, we agreed I was a little round shouldered and tight in my lower back. She confidently said ‘I will fix that’… I was sceptical…. After a few One to one sessions, I realised this was a very challenging form of Pilates – combining core control with strength work at a pace to deliver aerobic fitness. After one training session, I released the tightness in my shoulder that I’d lived with for years, could ease instantly with correct posture. Now my strength and tone are much more balanced, my posture is getting better all the time. I wonder how much my performance might have improved had I discovered Me..time when I was a full time athlete!”

These are just some unique comments our Clients have made:

“I am thoroughly enjoying Pilates with you – you make sense! Your tips and encouragement are brilliant and definitely help to keep me focused.”

I cannot tell you how pleased I am with your classes! I feel so good, they really more than live up to my ideals, probably all in the mind, but my knee even feels immediately better and I feel as though I have lost 1/2 a stone, even though I haven’t. I think the only thing I struggled with was the breathing, but with practice I know I’ll get that right. Thank you!”
