Quality of life through quality of movement

Kick the mid week blues!

Wednesday mornings for me are now a real highlight of the week, as at 09.15 I get to teach my Pilates Matwork Intermediate class. Those who attend know that the class will be challenging, yet we still have time to focus on that all important technique and even manage a few laughs along the way!

Those attending have all reached a good level of competence in their Pilates journey and are now ready to be taken to the next level, with the introduction of some more challenging exercises. Today we incorporated some classic moves from the Reformer repertoire into the Matwork sessions, increasing the emphasis on fluidity of movement that is so integral to those reformer exercises.

Hope you all enjoyed the class as much as I enjoyed teaching it; can’t wait till next week!

Happy training


If you’re interested in attending the class there are just a few spaces remaining, class time 09.15 Venue Bell Street Studios Reigate, call or email for further details; 01737 765335 rob@body-torque.co.uk

Pilates for Men, Monday evenings

Hi Just wanted to welcome the new guys to the Pilates for men beginner’s session on Mondays, 19.30 at the Old Reigatians Rugby Club.

I think you all did really well for your first session; and with the other guys already in the class we now have a great dynamic and age spread, you all looked like you all where enjoying the session so hopefully you did, don’t worry if its a bit confusing, it always is to start with, but stick with it and it’ll soon start to make sense.

I’ll send out the practise sheets for you to work on before next weeks class shortly.

For anyone interested in joining a Men’s Pilates class we still have a few spaces available, call Rob for details 01737 765335.

Keep practising, seen you all again on Monday

Mens Pilates in Reigate

Mens Pilates in Reigate

Hi just a quick reminder that we are still running Pilates classes for men in Reigate on Monday evenings.

These sessions focus on those areas that guys often neglect, or that suffer due to the stresses of work, i.e. neck, upper back and shoulders. But not only is Pilates great for de-stressing after a tough day in the office, but its also excellent to balance those repetitive movements of sporting activities such as golf or tennis & squash, which are focused on one side of the body. If your sporting activity is more balanced you will still find the flexibility and postural awareness that Pilates promotes will enable you to feel freer in your joints and thereby allowing for a more fluid movement; watching England’s rugby performance against Wales, clearly demonstrates how important it is to be agile in the world of competitive sport, no matter how big or heavy you are.

If you’re interested in attending a class Please contact Rob@body-torque.co.uk

More soon.


Boost Your Running Fitness with Pilates

Hi, Just wanted to update you all regarding the Reigate half marathon; I’ve been talking to the organizers finding out about entering a Body-Torque Pilates team; seems that we can do this, so once I have more info I’ll pass it on.

In the mean time there’s no better way to supplement your running/fitness training than to attend Pilates sessions; you can either attend one of our 30+ group mat class or if you want to work more specifically, why not attend a few 1:1 sessions and work on the equipment in our Pilates Studio.

Hundred on the Reformer

If you feel you’re doing enough Pilates don’t forget Meta-fit interval training a great way to gain that fitness edge, short bursts of high intensity interval exercise, work at your own pace but work hard!
