Rachel started Pilates at the age of 14 as part of her rehabilitation for a prolapsed disc. After undergoing two back operations in 1996 and 2010, Pilates has enabled her to regain strength and control. Understanding how beneficial this way of working is, it was only natural that she would end up becoming an instructor.

Before moving to Edinburgh in the summer of 2019, Rachel worked as a Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer in London. Here, she learnt one of the many contemporary Pilates methodologies, STOTT PILATES and became a fully certified instructor. She is currently in the process of becoming an Instructor Trainer (IT) and looks forward to training the next generation.

Rachel originally trained as a classical ballet dancer and worked in the profession from the age of 9. Following her second back operation she became a Personal Trainer and loves absorbing information about the human body. She has worked with many clients from all backgrounds and abilities, helping them to achieve strength, control and flexibility. She thrives on training clients to reach levels that they never thought possible. Her enthusiasm and dedication has helped many people improve their fitness and take control of their own health.
