Pilates with Karen

I head up the holistic and women’s health arm of Fit School. I teach Pilates classes in Epping and Essex as well as teaching and managing classes in offices around London. I also write and present on health and fitness, specifically women’s health issues.

My aim and that of Fit School is to break down barriers to health and fitness. As such my classes are fun and friendly environments. We aren’t on a quest for the body beautiful (although all of my participants are pretty perfect and beautiful in my opinion) but I do want to help you stay injury and pain free, reduce stress, make you feel better and encourage you to get an exercise habit for life.

I don’t teach gym classes or drop in classes and I don’t do budget fitness. With the exception of taster and trial classes, all my classes are programmed to see you progress, with homework between sessions. Courses include:

Pregnancy, Birth and Your Body – a nurturing environment where we ready your body for birth and motherhood.

Post Natal bring a baby classes – a six week course where we re-build your post baby body from the inside. We aim to get your body ready for mainstream exercise or a stronger Pilates class.

My pre and post natal classes have recently been nominated for Best Pre Post Natal Classes in the UK by What’s on 4 Juniors.

WhatsOn2015NominationsmallPilates Foundations – a technique focused class, steadier than our regular Pilates class. Suitable for anyone coming back after an injury, after a baby or starting out with Pilates.

Pilates – our flagship class. A weekly dynamic Pilates class where we work through programmes over 6-8 week periods designed to help you get the feel of the original moves without compromising on technique or fun!

I hold level 3 qualifications in both Pilates instruction and pre and post natal exercise prescription and am fully accredited by REPS (the register of exercise professionals).

I’ve recently been selected as a WIFE (Women in Fitness Empowerment) Rising Star #WIFERisingStars as a new face/voice for the future of fitness.


I’m also a keen runner, golfer, baker, trumpeter and most importantly mummy to Isaac and Naomi!
