Tell us a little bit about yourself? 

The thing that popped straight into my head when asked this question: Chocolate lover!! I am also very family orientated and love to go for a walk in the long summer evenings.


How long have you been coming to Elite? 

1 year


How did you start coming to pilates? 

I suffered with back pain for a few years and I was sick of taking medication to ease it. My doctor recommended to try Pilates and I haven’t taken any medication since I started with Elite.

Professional, fun, refreshing.


What would you say are your top 3 passions and why?

My job as a pharmacy technician- I am always looking for ways up skill and to learn more.

My family- having lived in Dublin for a few years, I really missed visiting at weekends but now that I’m back in Cork I always try to make the effort to stay in touch

Pilates of course!


When you’re not in studio, how do you spend your time?

As I recently just got a new puppy, Bailey, my time is filled by walking her and training her to sit and stay! She hasn’t quite mastered them yet but knows how to get to the top of the stairs in a flash if my back is turned for a second! 


What advice would you give to anyone looking to give pilates a go?

It’s for men and women of every age who all want to take that first step! After the intro class you will definitely want to come back for more! They offer great class packages so you’re always getting a good deal!
