My name is Julie Kimber and I began practising Pilates over 14 years ago. At the time I was suffering from lower back pain and various niggling injuries which was affecting my enjoyment of sport. I had played hockey at a good standard for many years and had always kept very fit; so it was frustrating to realise that perhaps age was catching up with me. My physio recommended I try Pilates and so I went along to a local class. I was fairly skeptical at first, as I had tried various gym fitness classes in the past to supplement my regular hockey training, but had never enjoyed or kept any of them up. However once I got into my Pilates course I became absolutely hooked. I really noticed the difference it was making to my strength and flexibility (despite me thinking I was pretty fit already!) and after a while my lower back pain completely disappeared.
In 2012 I decided to train as a teacher and discovered that the best teachers I had worked with had all trained with Body Control. This prompted me to sign up with Body Control Pilates because of the excellent and thorough training they receive. I have not looked back since.
