Pilates Instructor at Buckhurst Hill, St Albans
Prior to joining Chilli Pilates Luke was an elite athlete, representing Great Britain at European & National level Athletics. Luke competed at the Diamond league Anniversary Games at the London Olympic stadium and at the 2017 European Club Cup Championships, Luke came second in the U20 4x100m relay in Czech Republic, winning a silver medal for Team GB.
Through his experience, Luke developed an in depth understanding of the human body and how to optimise physical performance. As a Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer he is able to draw on this experience and pass on this knowledge to help his clients achieve their own objectives and goals. Although the Pilates studio is a step away from the athletics track, Luke passionately applies the same principles to motivate his clients and help them to make positive changes to their physical health and general wellbeing.

Yes, our classes are suitable for all fitness and experience levels. Throughout every class the instructor will adjust exercises and offer regressions or progressions to make the workout easier or harder to suit your specific ability.
You have to be 18 years old to attend classes with us (if you are 16-17 years old you can attend but must be accompanied by an adult). We have no maximum age limit, if you are able to get up and down from the ground unassisted and have a good range of mobility the classes can be adjusted to accommodate you.
This depends on the severity of the injury, but prior to arriving for your first class you will complete a Online Health Questionnaire to highlight any existing injuries or medical conditions. This will be reviewed by your instructor and if necessary they may recommend a 1 on 1 workout instead, if the instructor is happy for you to attend they will adjust the workout to accommodate you.
Yes, but instead of attending our group classes you will need to attend 1 on 1 Pilates session with one of our instructors. If you have experience in Reformer Pilates your instructor may then advise that you can transition into group classes. NOTE: we don’t recommend attending while you’re in your first trimester
