Professional knowledgeable service
I have been doing one to one classes with Lizzy at North Coast Pilates since November and nine months later I can't believe the difference. I have had back pain for years and have had two operations over the last six years and been told I will need a third (spinal fusion). I have to admit it scared the life out of me the thought of trying it for fear of pain. Lizzy has been brilliant building up a tailored workout month by month and in the process building up confidence to be able to try and do thing that I though would have been impossible. I am not totally pain free but its a massive difference and if I'm having a bit of bad day instead of popping painkillers and laying down for the day, I'm doing Pilates to free things up and being able to get up and on with things. You couldn't ask for a more friend and professional service from someone so knowledgeable in Pilates, and its such peace of mind knowing they are all physiotherapists. Would recommend to anyone with back problems.
First class mat and reformer studios run in such a caring and professional way by Lizzy and her helpers who are all fully trained and qualified in physiotherapy and APPI Pilates. Her classes are fun to attend and I have greatly benefited from them both before and after a hip replacement. My core muscles were strengthened which aided and shortened my recovery. I continue to go to reformer classes to help retain my mobility, strength and general wellbeing.
NCP are a wonderful example of a truly caring and totally professional business.
Onto a winner
I sought out Lizzy 3 years ago, following years of back issues. Back then my pain levels were debilitating, significantly impacting my daily life. I’d attended many Physio and Chiropractor clinics with limited results. Since contacting NCP I’ve attended physio, acupuncture, matwork, mum & baby pilates & now have the strength to attend the reformer classes. I’ve went from walking with a stick & having to sit down frequently when walking, to being able to push my toddler in his pram for over an hour with no pain at all. I know this is down to the professional treatment, guidance, encouragement & support of Lizzy, before, during & after my pregnancy. Add to this her friendly demeanour, good chat, bright, spacious & modern studios & you’re on to a winner. If you have any type of mobility issues or pain impacting you then I cannot recommend NCP enough. The physio will treat your ailment & the pilates will help reduce your chances of reoccurring injuries, providing tools to manage flare ups.
Fantastic, professional, approachable
What can I say, fantastic, professional, approachable, fun, knowledgeable, I could go on.
The level of dedication Lizzy & her team of physio only instructors offer in such a warm, friendly, state of the art environment is unrivalled in the area.
No one can offer such a high level of expertise mixed with such warm personalities.
The simple fact that Lizzy is the instructor to teachers says it all!!
Not only is she the expert, but she is one of the few to offer such a lovely environment for her classes, not to mention the fact she is the only one to offer Reformer classes.
Absolutely 5 stars all round for Lizzy & all her instructors.
Cannot recommend enough
I have been attending Lizzy’s mat work classes for about 2 and 1/2 years and her reformer classes for just over a year. Prior to starting Pilates, I had severe back pain 3 to 4 times per year and my back would ‘go out’ leaving me hobbling for 4-5 days each time. Pain relief medication didn’t touch the pain and I attended a physio who recommended Pilates to increase my core strength. It was the best advice I’ve ever been given. I am pleased to say that I have not had any further episodes of back pain for 2 years and 2 months! I cannot recommend Lizzy and her colleagues highly enough. I will be attending Pilates for life. Anyone with any back issues should definitely give it a try it’s life changing!
