Pilates Instructor at Harpenden, Hertford, St Albans
Fitness and sports performance has always been an integral part of Stephen’s lifestyle, stemming from sporting endeavours in national athletics and semi-professional football. Since graduating from the University of Hertfordshire in Sports Therapy, Stephen has been involved with pro sports teams, therapy clinics and Pilates studios in the UK and Australia.
Stephen offers concise injury assessment and rehab, as well as a variety of technique based Pilates and conditioning sessions. You will receive a tailored and individualised journey to better maintain or transform yourself for an enhanced quality of life.
“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional and mental state.”
It does vary dependent on which studio you are attending, but the maximum class capacity will range from 10-13 attendees.
For the safety of all attendees we limit the number of first time attendees in each class to a maximum of 3. Any first time attendees in excess of 3 will be contacted prior to the class and rescheduled into an alternative class.
Just your normal exercise clothing, anything you feel comfortable in and have a full range of movement. Socks are mandatory and we recommend ‘grippy’ socks to really aid your performance. Chilli Pilates ‘grippy’ socks can be purchase in studio.
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
