FitWell REFORMER Pilates Studio
When Laura discovered Reformer Pilates and the many benefjts of this method she established FitWell Reformer Studio, introducing this wonderful piece of equipment to Croxley Green.
The huge repertoire of movements the reformer offers is incomparable, providing resistance and assistance as required, and makes it perfect for providing tailor-made workouts across a broad range of capabilities.
This is exactly the type of session Laura believes in and has chosen to focus her time teaching. To ensure progress and results a client needs to be treated as an individual. This is made possible with reformer equipment in a small group of similar needs.
The Reformer has since become a favourite amongst Laura's clients of all levels, ages and stages.
Laura has 3 reformers, allowing her to offer private classes, duos or trios, making it affordable for all whilst ensuring a personalised workout.
Laura is passionate about keeping each session interesting and challenging, depending on the needs of the client.
Laura offers group 'Mat & complementary equipment' classes for all abilities, ranging from beginners to advanced.
Specialist classes are available for backcare, recovery & specific conditions/ailments, including chair based pilates and gentle Pilates for older adults.
Pilates sessions have been created to complement specific sports including running, cyling, golf, football, rugby, martial arts etc
