Vikki Jones Pilates
I qualified to teach Pilates classes in 2004, and have taught in Hastings since 2006. Prior to that I worked in the Fitness Industry as a gym and aerobics instructor since 1998.
I have also gained qualifications in Sports massage and Rehabilitation, G.P Referals, Adapted Physical Activity for the Disabled Person and Ante and Post-Natal Pilates. These qualifications allow me to offer a highly personalised service, taking into account not just common aches and pains but to provide recommendations and alternatives to each individual.
I am a Member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REP's) Advanced Level 3 and a Member of the International Council of Health, Fitness and Sports Therapists and hold Public Liability Insurance.
I have worked in the fitness industry for over 16 years, qualifying in 1998 as a gym instructor and aerobics instructor. I then used these skills working on a cruise ship in Alaska and the Caribbean, and on my return to the UK became a full-time gym instructor at the Bexhill Leisure Centre. While working in Bexhill I qualified in Kick Aerobics, Fitness Assessments & Health Appraisals and Body Massage, gaining vital knowledge with which to look after my client base.
I was then offered a position as Gym Manager in New Romney, Kent, where I worked for five years before leaving to start a family. During that time, I took further qualifications in Sports Massage and Rehabilitation, G.P. Referrals, Adapted Physical Activity for the Disabled Person and Modern Pilates Matwork Instructor. In 2007 I gained my Ante & Post-Natal Pilates qualification.
I have been teaching Pilates for over 10 years, offering a highly personalised service taking into account not just common general aches and pains (i.e. an aching back), but also able to offer recommendations and alternatives to each individual.
