Client Spotlight - Meet Rob

Q. Tell us about yourself.

Hi! I'm Gemma's husband. I'm 35 and I've spent most of my adult years walking around on various factory floors. I've got a background in design, but I've relegated this to a hobby really.  I was very athletic when I was younger but haven't done anything fitness-wise for AGES.

Q. How long have you been practicing Pilates & Yoga?

I've now done the beginners course 3 times... leaving it so long between each time I come back that I have to do the beginners all over again. I've only just started coming to the other classes (three times a week) for the last few weeks. I intend to keep coming this much.

Q. Why did you start?

Shamefully (especially as I am the husband of a pilates instructor), I have left it so long that my life of factory work and almost complete lack of exercise, has started to cause me pain in numerous parts of my body.

Q. How has your practice changed over time?

I am already starting to feel less pain and am beginning to get to know my body better.

Q. What brings you back to the mat week after week?

Fear of serious pain and postural problems when I get older. 

Q. How long have you been coming to Sense of Space?

Since it opened... on and off.

Q. What is your favourite thing about Sense of Space?

The peace and quiet and the time to focus on my self.
