Amy Lovell

Pilates Teacher and Run Leader

As the UK celebrated inspirational sporting achievements in the 2012 Olympics, Amy was spending most of her time either at a desk or tasting cheesecake as the desserts buyer for a major supermarket. Her unhealthy lifestyle was making her glum and contributing to back pain, and she desperately missed the dancing and sports she had enjoyed at school and university.

She decided to make a change and trained as a Level 3 Pilates Matwork Instructor.

Amy has gained a wealth of experience teaching Matwork Pilates in community and corporate venues, helping hundreds of clients improve their strength, flexibility and postural awareness. Amy adapts exercises to suit a range of fitness and experience levels and uses small equipment such as bands, balls and foam rollers to keep sessions varied and challenging.

Amy has taken further training in ante-natal and post-natal Pilates and Pilates for breast-feeding mothers. She more recently qualified as a Leader in Running Fitness with England Athletics.

In addition to her Pilates work, Amy heads up the Windsor and Maidenhead branch of GoodGym, a charity whose members combine running, walking and fitness with volunteering in their local community. She also has 4 children, who keep her on her toes!

Amy is happiest when she is being active, and she is passionate about the idea that physical exercise is essential for mental health as much as physical health. Her classes are not about achieving the perfect ‘beach body’; they are about being able to move and carry out our daily lives with energy, joy and freedom, happy in our own skin.
