Clare Brown, co-owner of Revitalise, has been teaching pilates and group exercise classes for over 12 years. Her wealth of experience in the fitness industry spans from group exercise leader to fitness centre manager to personal trainer and sports massage therapist as well as pilates teacher. She has qualifications with STOTT pilates, RSA, YMCA, LSSM, and Dip. RM. and is a member of Fitness Professionals and the Guild of Complementary of Practitioners.
For the past 8 years, Clare has specialised in teaching purely pilates. Having had 3 children during this time, she has found pilates to be instrumental in maintaining good posture and quickly returning to her pre-natal figure. These benefits, in addition to the numerous others gained by regular pilates, keeps Clare motivated and always keen to develop her teaching by attending workshops.
Clare is known for her clear explanations and hands on approach to teaching ensuring that the participant understands and performs each move correctly to gain the maximum benefit from each exercise. Clare incorporates all of her sports injury knowledge and fitness knowledge into her classes. Clare also uses small equipment in her pilates classes such as flex bands, foam rollers, fitness circles and toning balls which assist with modifications, and helps to add resistance, focus and variety to classes.
