Fitness Pilates Hertfordshire

“I must be right, never an aspirin, never injured a day in my life, the whole country the whole world should be doing my exercises and they’d be happier.” – Joseph Hubertus Pilates, in 1965, age 86.

What to expect from our classes


We offer mat based classes for all levels.  Each class has 2 instructors, 1 to teach the disciplines and offer corrections and the other to demonstrate.  Classes with one instructor are listed below

All our classes are open to everyone as we offer many differentiation moves and all classes offer progressions and regressions.

We concentrate on the seven principles of human movement – hinge, plank, push, pull, squat, lunge and rotation.

All our classes are pay as you go and you can swap and change classes as much as you want


Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates in 1920’s and is a full body workout working on proper alignment, good technique of moves and correct breathing.  It also increases flexibility and also induces a sense of relaxation and well being

Each week we work with different props – Gymsofts, dumbbells, gymballs, dynabands, activation bands, prickle balls and blocks to challenge the body concentrating on the core.

Joseph Pilates was the Einstein of Fitness not only for creating a unique and highly effective exercise method, but also for discovering the healing power of core strength and the tremendous benefits of eccentric contraction, dynamic stretch, enhanced breathing, and fluid movement. Furthermore, he created one of the few exercise methods that combines everything the body needs – strength training, stretching, and aerobics.
