What the clients say

  • Carolyn
    Pilates classes with Melanie are the best part of my gym membership and always happily anticipated. I arrive early to secure a place in her immensely popular class! Melanie is a thorough, knowledgeable, and positive leader who creates a relaxed and enthusiastic atmosphere in her classes. She encourages both the beginner to achieve success and the more advanced to strive for improvement, whilst explaining the underlying physiological aspects of the exercises. Thank you Melanie for improving my physical health and helping me to “Stand Tall and Strong”.
  • Sue
    I have taken Mel’s classes, Active Tone and Pilates for several years and they have had a significant impact on my life. Through her patient, clear, informative instruction I have learnt so much about how my body works and how to take of myself in everyday life. Mel gives so much more than simply exercises, she shows genuine interest and a passion in her field of expertise and in every participant in her class. Mel’s consistent good humour and warm disposition fosters a positive, energising, relaxed and joyful tone in all her classes. Getting older has always been a dreadful thought for me but with Mel’s voice echoing in my head it looks a lot brighter, feels a lot stronger and my approach to it all is one that is far more empowered. Thanks Mel!
  • Lyndall
    I just wanted to thank you so much for the 'come and try' session of your Core&More Pilates multi-level class yesterday!  It was truly amazing and I can't wait to embark on my Pilates journey with you!
  • Carmel
    I love my Saturday morning Pilates class with Mel. It starts off my weekend with her friendly welcome and I always feel energised and stronger afterwards. I really appreciate the way Melanie caters for all levels of fitness within her classes (male and female) by differentiating the movement levels to suits your body. Melanie is a brilliant teacher and I can highly recommend her classes if you want to build core strength for everyday living.
  • Jackie
    I love Melanie’s Pilates classes. She is very professional and makes sessions so much fun. No two classes are the same. Brilliant!
  • Patrick
    Melanie’s Pilates classes are awesome! She caters for all ages… It’s the class I most look forward to each week. Melanie explains why we do particular exercises and the anatomy that underpins the movement.
  • Lyn

    Thank you Melanie. My first year learning Pilates in your classes has been an inspiration. In my late seventies and encouraging my 81 year old partner to participate.

  • Robyn

    Having returned to exercise from an injury, I was a little nervous, but the classes are very sensitively planned for all levels of intensity. Melanie is a very skilled and responsive tutor
