The Physio Fit and Pilates studio has been running for a number of years and was founded by Aimee Clayton and Jessica Nicholson. The studio offers a variety of specialist classes including mixed ability mat work, pre and postnatal as well as one to one training.
Taught by experienced Physiotherapists with ongoing Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute training, our Pilates classes are completed in a non-competitive environment with no previous experience necessary.
As health professionals, we welcome individuals with spinal conditions such as osteoporosis, low back pain, sciatica as well as post joint replacements, general musculoskeletal conditions, postnatal and more.
You can find all the times and relevant information of our courses on our timetable.
What is Pilates?
Practised since the 1920s, Pilates is a holistic approach to health and fitness. Exercises are performed on a mat utilising a variety of small equipment challenging the body continually.
The human body is susceptible to learning dysfunctional movement patterns and Pilates is designed to re-educate your body and improve its function.
This improvement is not just about exercising your whole body but achieving a perfect balance between your body and sense of self. Pilates emphasises the connection between physical and emotional health.
Pilates provides core stability and strength training essential for the health of the spine, as well as key relaxation techniques to help focus the mind and body. Pilates classes can reduce musculoskeletal pain, improve posture and coordination, boost your general fitness and alleviate stress and anxiety. Professional athletes and dancers are also known to use Pilates to drive athletic performance and to recover from injury.
If you are a fitness enthusiast or even entirely new to fitness classes, our Pilates classes will suit your needs. What makes Pilates so universally beneficial is that the apparatus is adaptable for all levels, whether you need beginners support and recovery, or a challenging workout with intensive body conditioning exercises.

It's very hard work for me, but it's so worthwhile despite my disability. The ladies are very professional and helpful. I honestly couldn't ask for more.
I have really enjoyed the post natal Pilates sessions with the ladies especially as I can take my baby along too! They are very professional, friendly and everyone in the class is very welcoming. Since having my little one it's hard to get out and do something for yourself so this is fun whilst helping you recover from pregnancy/birth and beyond.
