They will introduce you to the reformer Pilates equipment, understand your current ability and health goals, and make an initial assessment on which class is most suitable for you.


FIT Pilates

Our ‘FIT’ reformer group classes are designed to build your core strength, improve posture and balance, increase overall fitness and endurance and promote body tone. Pilates is also known to reduce stress and tension.

Reformer Pilates classes use bed-like apparatus, with ropes, springs and straps which allow for changes in resistance as proficiency increases. The fluid transition from one position to another allows for a continuous flow of movement within each exercise, thus providing a more intense workout than can be achieved from regular mat Pilates. Read more on the topic, what is reformer Pilates?

Using reformer equipment also generally allows for greater customisation of fitness goals, since they promote better postural alignment, greater cardiovascular endurance, and potential weight loss through increased calorie burning. Since reformer Pilates tends to be more intense, it is a popular choice not just for those already well-versed in mat Pilates, but for beginners alike.

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is traditional mat or reformer Pilates exercises combined with exercise physiology assessment and expertise to provide a tailored exercise program that targets a specific condition.

Clinical Pilates is most suitable for those who may be recovering from injury, rehabilitating post-surgery, or looking for a pre-natal or post-natal exercise program. The program strengthens and re-trains specific targeted muscles on how best to function, while toning and stretching other muscles, improving general overall fitness, flexibility and endurance.

Our classes are available in a maximum group class of four, however each participant may be working to their own program, within their own capabilities, and to meet their own specific requirements and health goals. We do of course also offer private one-on-one sessions should you prefer.

Clinical Pilates can assist…


From an injury or post-surgery


From neck to back, arm to knee pain


Including osteoporosis, osteopenia


Such as pre or post-natal care and pelvic floor


Including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease

Pre and Post Natal Pilates

Pre and Post Natal Pilates

At Atkins Health, we offer fully qualified pre and post-natal Pilates instructors to coach you safely through your journey.

A pre-natal reformer Pilates exercise program will provide you with an effective and safe routine that will carry you all the way through your pregnancy. The benefits you will reap include retaining muscle tone, building strength, reduction or prevention of back pain, and increasing your energy levels. A pre-natal program is the perfect exercise partner to your pre-natal journey and will prepare you for a more comfortable delivery, and a quicker recovery.

As a post-natal exercise program, Pilates will of course greatly assist in the rebuilding of core strength. It will also help reduce the chance of issues recurring such as bladder control or pelvic floor dysfunction, that can be a consequence of returning to a high impact exercise program too quickly after child birth, and not giving your body enough time to repair and recover.

Client testimonials

Here is what some of our Pilates customers have to say….

Since doing reformer Pilates, my body feels a lot stronger and because I do a lot of running, it has enabled me to do it with more confidence. This type of exercise is so important to our health and well-being especially as you approach the later years in life. I am able to handle more obstacles that come my way in my daily life as well as my working life. Best thing that I have ever started.


Atkins Health provides us with massage on a monthly basis which we know is very beneficial, then have started regular Pilates classes which have improved our overall body strength and core stability, at our ages over 60 this enables us to continue to undertake our crazy pastimes of hiking, cycling and keeping up with the grandkids.


I am 80+ years old and the support of the girls Nicole and Emma keeps me coming back believing and seeing the progress of my body towards healthy and fit aged life.


Nicole has made me fall in love with Pilates. From day one, she has made me feel comfortable with where I was at and what I needed to strengthen and work on. Having her there each week holds me accountable and I’m seeing so much improvement in my back pain).
