Kate Parkes

Hi! I’m Kate,

I am a mum to two fabulous children and I have a big passion for Pilates!

I started off as a gymnast when I was 5 and then 11 years later it all came to an end when I became ill and I injured my back at the same time.

After many scans and investigations, Pilates was the way forward to help me with my rehabilitation. That’s where my passion started!

Pilates allowed me to still be involved in gymnastics as a coach and i also went on to university to get a Bsc (Hons) in Sports Therapy.

In 2017 I decided to take the step to becoming an instructor.

With the knowledge from my degree and personal experience I went straight in to specialising in back care with Pilates. I then built on this and moved in to gyms giving me the ability to teach such a wide audience and being able to tailor the class to suit different abilities.

Having children of my own, I saw a huge gap in the market and in 2018 I qualified as an instructor for Fitness Pilates for Mums & Tots. This allows mums to bring their tots with them to exercise.

Having all this, it gave me the encouragement to start building my own business with my own classes and offering 1:1 sessions. I have since gained my Advanced Fitness Pilates in Pregnancy qualification too.

I love teaching Pilates to everyone whether it is for fitness, rehabilitation or mental wellbeing, everyone can gain something from it!

As a complete beginner to Pilates i did the mums and tots class with my nearly 3 year old son. it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere with some background music and lots of toys for the little ones to play with.
My son joined in with the lesson as and when he wanted and played the rest of the time.
The lessons were varied each week and i could definitely feel they had worked!

I am benefiting hugely from Kate’s wonderful classes with greater all-round flexibility and improving my core strength. The classes are always fun but tough!
