FOUNDATION PILATES

FOUNDATION PILATES - MOVE THE RIGHT WAY

Everyone moves in different ways, influenced by the individual day to day lives we lead. This can create tissue stress and overloading in certain areas of the body, in many cases developing the pain and stiffness you may experience on a daily basis. 

However with Foundation Pilates, in Battersea, you will work to identify and remove many of the restrictions that inhibit our daily living, creating Movement Health allowing you to feel more supple and energised.

The key step for Foundation Pilates is to learn and understand how your body moves and identify the weak links. Foundation Pilates can be your first step into the amazing world of Pilates while you learn how you move. Or it can be a great transition from injury and pain as you work towards building your core foundation, such an important step in the recovery process. One often missed by many clients as part of their treatment pathway.

Change happens through movement, and movement heals’ 
– JOSEPH PILATES

Firstly, you will have an assessment so our skilled Pilates Instructors, all with rehabilitation backgrounds, assess how you move building a plan to help develop your weaknesses into strengths and introducing you to the reformer with essential introduction exercises. Generally you will then complete three 1:1 sessions to get you ready to join a suitable class for your level. However it is your choice and you may wish to to continue with 1:1 training, keeping the personalised input into your sessions or joining a bespoke class (maximum 3 per class) and working in a group environment.

Whichever path you choose your body will thank you for starting the path to movement health.

Remember when you are ready you can progress into our Performance Pilates programmes.

TESTIMONIALS

Just to say, thank you both so much for your running technique/run-planning input. I ran Oxford Half yesterday in a pb of 1.35.04 (pb by about 2 minutes, which had been my aspiration for ages) – totally unexpected given my main goal was to get round uninjured.

SOPHIE

I have been seeing Amy at a Body Logic Health for the last few months regardinglongstanding hip and back pain from childhood pelvic surgery. Amy quicklygot to the route of the pain and has lessened it considerably. She has alsogiven me exercises to strengthen the area and a pathway to get back intoexercise. She is amazing!

CLAIRE

Just to say, thank you both so much for your running technique/run-planning input. I ran Oxford Half yesterday in a pb of 1.35.04 (pb by about 2 minutes, which had been my aspiration for ages) – totally unexpected given my main goal was to get round uninjured.

SASHA

 

My 10k time used to be about 55min, I ran a PB when I last saw you at Clapham - 50m13 (pretty disappointed not to go sub 50m). My main goals from Running Evolution have been to run injury free - I have run more this year than any other year

 

NEIL

Amy, my physiotherapist, has been amazing clearly explaining each stage of the treatment & rehabilitation program with patience and a fun and enthusiastic manner. Setting progressive and varied exercises to build strength & stability for my return to competitive racket sports and running.This manner has been instrumental in maintaining motivation throughout the process and it has been extremely rewarding to see the considerable progress made because of this.

ANDY

In terms of rehabilitation offering, I feel I have had access to a 360’ program, as in addition to the physiotherapy my posture, walking and running has been videoed and analysed which has transformed my gait and running technique to minimise further injury.I have also had access to sports massages to maintain flexibility to maximise the results of the rehabilitation and strengthening exercises at home and in their fantastic gym and exercise area all on site.A big thank you to the whole team.

DEREK

For the previous two months I had been hobbling around like Quasimodo’s elder sister. Three months and eight treatments later, reinforced by "Walking Retraining" - to correct my gait and posture, I feel like a new woman. My hip is all but better, my back hasn’t been so good in years and my mojo has returned

DR MILLER

Thanks for all your help – its pretty impressive to think that my first lesson was on the 27th January and that I managed a sub 3hr 30 marathon just over 3 months later. I’d struggled to run much from mid-December last year so to get to Hamburg in good shape felt like a race against time. There’s no doubt in my mind that the lessons made all the difference.

ANDREW

The Performance Matrix, an individualised programme, which has targeted my weak areas in order that I can attain new goals: cycling, yoga and 13 hour shifts on my feet!!! My long term goal is to get back skiing which I can now see is a possibility. And the best bit - I no longer have to spend 30 minutes stretching each day to relieve my pain ?

RACHEL

Running Evolution has adapted my technique immeasurably to run longer distances consistently faster all while remaining injury free - I am simply running better than I ever have'

SIMON

 

I think everyone who enjoys running or intends to run regularly should definitely attend Running Evolution. I also firmly believe that Running Evolution is something we should have all gone through as kids!’

TERESA

Without having done the Performance Matrix movement screen, I would never have been able to remain injury free while training for and running the London marathon this year. You certainly have to commit to doing the exercises but the results have allowed me to feel that I am in the best shape I could possibly be

LOUISA

I was referred to you by my doctor as I had an achilles tendon injury caused by road running. I first had 6 physio sessions, the goal was to eliminate the discomfort and get me back on the ‘road’. During the initial physio sessions it became clear that my running technique contributed to my injury so Paul recommended your run clinic. Moving from physio to run clinic was a smooth transition, after 7 sessions with Laura I now feel much stronger and this has been reflected in my run times. The achilles remains in good shape. All in all an ...

MARK

My son James attended the Running Evolution and was coached by Sam. During his six lessons, James completely changed his running style and dramatically increased his speed. A member of Arsenal Football Academy, his season scores on Nike Testing all improved, as well as, his balance and co-ordination. In such as short period of time, it’s made a dramatic change in James as an athlete. I can’t thank the Running Evolution enough.
