Meet Sally O’Connell

If you’ve been with Elite Pilates from the start then you’ll definitely recognise our lovely Sally! Sally has been a client with us since day one and as her passion for pilates grew and grew, she eventually made the decision to train to become a mat reformer and barre pilates instructor. You’ll find Sally in Carrigtwohill and Donnybrook but in the meantime why not find out a little more about her below!

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Sally, I’m from Blackrock and I’m married and I’m a mum to 2 little boys.

How long have you been working with Elite?

I’ve been a client with Elite since the very beginning and have been teaching for about 6 months now.

How did you start teaching pilates?

I have been doing pilates for 15 years and fell in love with reformer 6 years ago. Ever since taking my first reformer class I think I knew I wanted to transition into a career in pilates and after thinking about it since then, I finally decided to go for it!

What would you say is your favourite thing about working at Elite Pilates?

My favourite thing about Elite is that no two classes are the same. all of us as instructors have different styles of teaching which gives the clients a really well rounded experience.

Why did you choose pilates as a career?

I love pilates and I love teaching, so I suppose I fell into it more through passion rather than making a conscious decision.

What 3 words would you say describe you?

I would describe myself as indecisive, happy and patient (to a point! ask my family)!

What 3 words would you say describe Elite Pilates?

Elite is professional, friendly and has a nice range of classes

What would you say are your top 3 passions?

1. my husband and kids.
2. friends and family.
3. exercise

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

In my free time I am either with my kids or exercising! Maybe the occasional night out but thats rare these days!

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

Just do it. you won’t regret it.
