Pilates Mat & Reformer Pilates/Indoor Cycle XBiking
Just a little bit about my background. My own background is Martial Arts/Horseriding/Dancing and with a keen interest in Fitness I went on when I left school and trained in The Fitness Institute where I earned my first set of qualifications NCEHS...National Certificate in Health And Exercise Studies. I am a fully qualified Spin Instructor and a Fully Qualified Certified Reboundologist with U.S. Qualifications.
I have worked in the Fitness Industry in many well known Health Clubs around Dublin and Meath, JacKie Skelly Fitness, Apple Fitness, Nautilus, Bodyline, Profiles to name but a few of the Gyms Ive taught in over the years.
After working both as a Gym Floor instructor where I dealt individually with clients and worked out personal programmes to suit each individuals own personal goals and also teaching many fitness classes, aerobics, cardio kickboxing, step classes, spinning, toning and Rebounding classes I started to realise that it was in the class environment where my passions lay. I love motivating clients at every level and helping people reach and maintain their goals in a class based environment. After many years of working as an instructor in health clubs I decided to set up my own small class based business. In 2006 Ratoath Fitness Spin/Rebounding classes were born in Ratoath where I feel since the day I started teaching classes I have the most dedicated and loyal hardworking clients who come back to me time and time again.
I am totally passionate about teaching fitness & in particular Pilates classes and I love motivating people, working them hard but having a bit of a laugh also. I am also a Mother of four kids in ages from 22 down to 10 years old.
I returned to College in the National Training Centre and the Pilates Institute of Ireland and I qualified as an Advanced Pilates Matwork Instructor EQF Level 4. I can teach Pilates at all levels, Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced/Special Populations/Pregnancy/Returning from Injury/Small Equipment. I believe in keeping myself up to date and educated in all areas of Health And Fitness as this benefits my clients aswell as myself.
I then went on and educated myself further and became a Balanced Body U.S. Certified Reformer Pilates Instructor at Levels 1,2, 3.
I did my H.Dip in Education as well as a Fetac Level 6 Trainer award and I work as a Part-Time Tutor on the Advanced Diploma in Pilates Matwork Course in the Pilates Institute of Ireland in the National Training Centre in Dublin.
I continue to do many workshops in Pilates with Pilates Masters from all around the world as often as I can. I will continue to do this as I believe in continuing further education all the time.
I will continue to do more Professional Development as long as I possibly can to bring quality Pilates & Fitness classes to Ratoath and surrounding areas.
