What our clients have to say...

  • This is a surprisingly thorough book, packed with practical advice. It will prove invaluable for anyone who wants to enjoy consistently high energy levels and the simple pleasure of feeling great.

    Clive Lewis, Managing Director, Illumine Training

  • We have tried out some of the suggestions, the department, not only looks different, but the staff seem happier as well.
  • I am 58 years of age and in reasonable physical condition. I am really a beginner, but after my first few classes with Gillian at Norden Farm (Maidenhead), I already noticed some very positive changes: Firstly, following an inner ear infection a few years ago, my balance had never really recovered. For example when getting dressed I have had to sit down in order to put on knickers or trousers as I could not balance on one leg. After just half a dozen classes I noticed big improvements in my balance, and I can now hop around to put on my underwear like I used to do years ago! Secondly, I have noticed that I am getting stronger especially when standing up out of a low seat. Previously I found I was having to push myself up using my arms, whereas now I can just stand up. Thirdly, I have noticed much more flexibility in my neck and shoulders, especially when driving I can turn to look further over my shoulder at those tricky junctions. Each of these positive changes are very tangible improvements in my wellbeing (balance, core strength and flexibility), and I am a total convert to Pilates as you have been teaching it, and I look forward to further positive changes. Thank you.

  • To be honest I have been delighted with the results that I have achieved in Gillian’s class in such a short space of time. I was suffering with lower back pain when horse riding as I became tired and my back always held me up due to my lack of core. After 3 weeks my lower back niggles were only during my riding lesson and not for 2 days afterwards. This just gets better all the time. My instructor was amazed at how much noticeably better my riding has become. Thank you, Gillian! The classes are fun and varied, too.

  • I attend Gillian's pilates class regularly and have seen a great improvement with my posture and my stiff and often sore back... In my line of work as a Foot Health Professional, I do a lot of bending and carrying heavy bags in and out of the car putting a lot of strain on my back and knees. Gillian has shown me how to improve my core and suggested exercises to help me on a daily basis. She offers a very personal service and always makes sure that you are doing the exercises correctly and at your own pace. I can highly recommend Gillian and she is a lovely, warm, approachable and professional person who is always very interested in your well being and making sure that you reach your true potential.

    Private client, Taplow, April 2014

  • I suffered from regular lower back pain, struggling to get out of bed after a night’s sleep! After several doctor’s appointments, including MRI scans, I was diagnosed with a leaking disc. Options for me were either surgery, with the associated risks, or improve my core strength and stability. After attending the Pilates classes run by John, I have never looked back. John has helped me to improve my core strength, improve my posture and put my back issues behind me. John runs his classes in a relaxed manner which are always varied and tailored to the individual’s needs. Unequivocally, I would highly recommend John Spencer to help you improve your core strength and make back pain a thing of the past.
