Our Fit For Life classes are designed to develop fitness, stamina, power and ability to do your everyday activities confidently and with control.
We incorporate a wide range of Pilates exercises to work all your major muscles and joints, increase your heart rate, and stengthen bones and recovery rate.
We work on balance, stability, coordination, mobility, and strength. Expect to use not just a Pilates mat, but also other small equipment such as stability ball, stability cushion, hand weights, foam roller, core discs, spikey balls and resistance bands.
We will be standing, kneeling, and lying down. This is an all fitness levels class. The ability to get down onto the floor and back up again is recommended for this class - if this is not you yet, maybe the Joint Care class would be a good fit to get you started to develop your fitness.
My name is Oonagh McDevitt, and I have extensive experience teaching all ages with fitness levels and am keen for you to get the most out of each class you atten. Full demo and description of all the exercises given including options to make the moves more accessible or more challenging depending on how you are on the day.
It is advisable to check with your GP or physio if you have a medical condition or injury to ensure Pilates is right for you at the moment. It may mean that some of your exercises need to be modified to enable you to get the benefit of them - that's okay, I am very flexible - we can easily take a different approach.
