Kate is a brilliant Pilates teacher, and I would really recommend her classes

I have really benefited from one-to-one Pilates sessions with Kate which are helping me to recover from a pre-existing injury. Her encouraging and friendly teaching style gives me confidence to keep going. Her studio is a lovely warm safe space to learn Pilates, and as an absolute beginner I always leave feeling like I’ve achieved something!

I have been coming to 4Most Fitness and attending private Pilates classes with Kate since 2008! 

Kate was recommended to me by my osteopath as I have osteoporosis. I love my classes and Kate has helped me a great deal with my osteoporosis. My posture, flexibility and balance have all improved thanks to my Pilates classes.

Friendly and professional

I’ve been going to Pilates with Kate for a number of years and have always found her to be very friendly and professional. She has a wonderful way about her and makes her classes very engaging. Her knowledge is second to none and for someone who has underlying health issues I always feel in very safe hands.

I’ve been to 4Most Fitness classes for over 3 years now and would highly recommend them

Kate is well qualified and experienced, and the studio is kitted out with everything you need.  Classes are pitched at different levels to suit your needs, with a good balance of being realistic whilst also being inspired to improve.  This is the kind of class you join and soon decide it’ll be for as long as you live nearby!

Kate’s classes have changed my life for the better.

As someone with hypermobile joints I have always struggled with exercise, but Kate helped me understand how to work with my body rather than against it. I’ve gained strength, developed confidence and our sessions are a highlight of my week.

Charlotte Pattullo

I have been doing Pilates since 2017 as I suffered with two protruding discs in my spine and a shoulder injury.

Kate takes time to understand individual injuries and tailors her Pilates classes around you. Her studio is spotless, with every piece of equipment you need. Since starting Pilates it has really improved my quality of life. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate’s Pilates classes.

Kate tailors her Pilates classes according to your abilities and any individual injuries

Thanks to her encouragement, I look forward to strolling into old age rather than creaking into it. I have tried other Pilates classes, but I can honestly say that Kate’s are the best.

If you are looking to strengthen up following a specific injury, Kate has the expert knowledge

To lead you through a targeted set of exercises whilst always keeping in mind your specific injury or weakness. The classes are always structured in advance and Kate goes out of her way to vary the exercises after each session. I can highly recommend Kate’s Pilates sessions as lots of the local physios do.

Graham Flynn

Extremely professional and pleasant to work with but also lots of fun

Kate provides excellent Pilates classes which are structured to personal needs. I have been to classes both on zoom, and in her well-equipped studio for a number of years and find she is able to willingly adapt her classes to my specific needs. She challenges me each week without me realising and I would highly recommend her.

She encourages me to do more without pushing me
I have been attending Kate’s Pilates classes for a few years now. I have muscular dystrophy and Kate knows what I can and can’t do. She encourages me to do more without pushing me. I always feel so much better, physically and mentally, after one of her classes
Lyn Williams

Kate is very knowledgeable

I started Pilates to help with my back problems. I have found Kate’s classes very helpful. Kate is very knowledgeable and adapts her exercises in each session according to your ability.

Heather Thrasher

Wow what a find!

I found 4Most Fitness first run by Kate and wow what a find.  I had a few private lessons as I hadn’t done anything for 18 months and I now do a regular class on the equipment and hopefully as things return to normal do a mat class for healthy bones.

Kate is an excellent teacher one of the best not only teaching the machine but correcting posture and breathing.  The studio is very well set up and equipped and very clean.

I have improved greatly and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Kate explains each exercise clearly

Although I have done mat pilates for some years, I am new to pilates using apparatus and I love it.  Kate was recommended to me and I watched some of her zoom sessions during lockdown.   I have always felt safe using the unfamiliar equipment as Kate explains each exercise clearly and corrects as needed.  I’ve enjoyed all the sessions I’ve attended and can feel the benefit to my knees and leg strength, in particular, after only a few sessions.

Kate’s professionalism and expertise was evident from the start of our sessions

I took the decision to sign up with Kate, who’s professionalism and expertise was evident from the start of our sessions. She quickly came to grips with my problems, recognising the ongoing impact of my medical history and my, thus far, largely ignored hyper-mobility. Kate has worked slowly and carefully, with a mix of encouragement and patience to increase my basic fitness.
I’ve gained confidence along the way that she wouldn’t expect something of me that I wasn’t capable of achieving. Now into my second year with Kate, feeling physically stronger and addressing issues one by one that have come to the fore. I’m so thankful I made the decision to work with her and am facing my 60’s in much better physical shape. I can highly recommend Kate to you.
