"How Pilates has helped me: Racing off road motorbikes is known to be one of the most physically demanding sports thus making our training for it equally demanding! There is a constant search for different disciplines of training that will make one fitter to gain the edge!
Pilates definitely found a hole in my training programme that I didn’t even know about! The P6 Pilates program concentrates on slow controlled movements of the body; thereby training groups of muscles that I would normally neglect, strengthening injuries, increaing my flexibility and overall ( for lack of a better word ) improvement of body strength.
My body communicates better within itself and with more power. A simple movement on a bike such as squeezing the bike through a turn to keep it tracking and then putting the power down starts from my core, resulting in a safer higher corner speed!
My idea is to become the ultimate package for the bike, Pilates has definitely helped me get a couple of steps closer to this...."

"It is also one of the toughest. As an athlete, we think we need to train Long distances on the bicycle, or train hard in the gym, but we don't think at all about our core muscle development. Or the importance of being supple and flexible. I have had 1 or 2 Big crashes since Ive added Pilates to my regime and have walked away from them relatively unscathed. I 100% put it down to the core strength and flexibility Ive gained from Pilates.
The other aspect I Really Love about Pilates is that you have to really concentrate, especially on Breathing and tensing certain muscle groups.
I have recommended P6 Pilates to many of my fellow racers and competitors and would strongly encourage anyone looking to improve their general well being to this program.
Tami has a great way of designing programs according to your personal preferences trains us around our injuries and in fact lightly works on and strengthens those weak areas.
I endorse P6 Pilates 100% "
|I have quite bad scoliosis which over the years has been getting progressively worse. I decided to try pilates to prevent further deterioration. I have been delighted with the results. Not only has the pilates helped me to balance my body and spine, but it has also given me muscle definition that I have never had before, despite always being active. I only wish I had discovered pilates 20 years ago!|
"The benefits of Pilates and in particular one on one sessions are noticeable and extremely beneficial in strengthening not only core but all muscle groups in addition to making your body supple with the many stretching techniques. I am recovering from injury at the moment and I am using Pilates to start up all the muscles that have gone to sleep. Simple excercises are used to engage these muscles, Tami understands what needs to be done in order to get me back on my bike again"
