Tammy was a client for many years and was in the process of a career change into the fitness industry when we first met. Her thirst for knowledge and learning was so vast that I thought it may drown her, but she didn’t stop because she had clearly found what she was looking for (the other U2 song).
She rather nervously approached me one treatment and asked if I would ever consider taking her on at the studio, and I had to break the news that I was only currently looking for a Pilates teacher. Well that was that, back she was a year later with her Pilates qualification and a whole host of other diploma’s and qualifications.
Well I simply couldn’t turn that sort of enthusiasm down. Since joining us in 2016 she has found her passion in the more technical aspects of Pilates, movement therapy and strength and Conditioning, something which is often lacking within the fitness industry. She has identified that many people want to push themselves harder but lack the technical instruction to do so safely.
2021 will see Tammy offering a new kind of class to the studio which is for those who want to go to the next level by adding complexity, speed and resistance to their workouts safely and effectively, and inspire people to be the best version of themselves.
Tammy has a bespoke set of skills in a wide range of disciplines from advance personal training, to Pilates, pole fitness and kettlebells, to a master practitioner in NLP. She uses all of these tools to help people explore a variety of ways and environments to get moving, and uses a unique holistic approach to exercise which takes into account the interconnection between movement, mind-set, health and wellbeing, fun and play.
As a little girl she rarely sat still, moving, jumping, climbing trees and, most of all, dancing and we can tell you - not much has changed! She believes that movement should be fun, creative and imaginative and give you a sense of freedom and joy.
She is constantly challenging her own knowledge, perceptions and comfort zones, and has taken part in the number of events and challenges including walking the Great Wall of China for the NSPCC, Trekking Madagascar National park for St Catherine’s Hospice, Cotswold 100k Challenge, and Medal winner at the European & World Ultimate Fitness Championships in London & Canada in 2019.
She also has a hilarious Cat called Bandit.
