Victoria Gidney

Hello! I’m Victoria, a certified STOTT PILATES instructor, runner and founder of RUNLATES – offering Pilates classes tailored to runners, alongside more traditional Matwork and small equipment.
I came to running in my early 30s, already training in Pilates but wanting to do something alongside to improve my fitness. After finding a great group of running buddies, one thing led to another and ended up signing up for my first marathon a year later… During training I appreciated how well Pilates had prepared my body for running, giving me the good form, strength and flexibility I needed to stay injury free.
Keen to learn more, I trained as an instructor then leapt into a career change less than a year later. I’m fascinated by the biomechanics of how we move, and how clever our bodies are at adapting – both to compensate for weaknesses and re-learn movement patterns through focused training. I love to share this with my clients as it’s important to understand WHY we’re doing an exercise a certain way… as well as how to do it!
