Strengthening and toning Pilates calendar

Get a spring in your step with our strengthening and toning Pilates series

Working our way through April this calendar utilises a mix of brand new classes alongside some of our existing favourites to challenge all areas of our bodies

Throughout the month the series introduces a mix of focus areas alongside new classes that give an ‘all over’ workout.

Many of the classes offer variations of exercises to suit all levels and give you the opportunity to challenge yourself more throughout the month (should you wish to)

I hope you like it (feel free to leave a message at the bottom of this page).

    Thankyou Vicky, I have recently come across your website and found it invaluable whilst dipping in and out of it for the last few weeks without realising there is a structured class programme throughout the month.
    After signing up for your email I have realised this is the case and I am really excited to be challenged further and look forward to getting stuck in!

    1. Vicky

      You’re most welcome 🙂

  • Alison

    I’ve just done the first class of the new spring calendar, I feel very motivated, having enjoyed the class and knowing I’m giving my body a good exercise workout.
    Thank you for your classes, old and new, they’ve been a great help during the lockdowns particularly. However, I shall certainly continue with them,once I’m back at work. I like the fact that you offer various level options during the classes. Keep up the brilliant work.

  • Sharon

    Just did the first of your April classes Vicky. Really loved it!
    Thank you x

  • Roz

    Lovely to have a structured calendar again Vicky. I try & do a workout from your website every day but there are some I know I should do more but tend to avoid if I’m feeling lazy (my balance definitely needs working on!)
    Having more structure definitely suits me & I felt better for getting up early & doing the new one this morning.
    Happy Easter everyone!

  • Marged

    Im really enjoying the weekly timetable Vicky.Thank you so much for all your work in creating these.
    I feel very motivated to follow them regularly and really feel the benefit in strength and stamina.

  • Gill

    I have been dipping into various classes (usually moderate) since February this year and have really enjoyed the flexibility of fitting in Pilates exercise in when I want. I feel so much better and fitter as well! Thank you so much, this is so valuable during lockdown in particular.

    1. Vicky

      Hi Gill. You are most welcome. So glad to hear you’re enjoying the classes.

  • Jen

    These classes have been brilliant! Please do another series for May/June etc – it’s so much easier as I’m never sure which classes I should do to make sure that lots of different areas receive focus.

  • Debra

    Love the classes and having the structure of the spring calendar. Is there a May one coming. It really helps me stay focused and I try and do each class twice in the week.

    1. Vicky

      Hi Debra.

      Thanks so much for your comment. I will be working on a new calendar for June. For May I have some classes ready-filmed that will help increase the variety available. If you get the newsletter I will be sending out some series options this week to help keep those of you who like to follow a programme busy until the next calendar is ready in June. 🙂

  • David

    I’m loving the new classes as I’ve been following yours since the original lockdown. At my age (63) I find the moderate level enough of a challenge & I tend to take two classes a week, 30-50 mins each. Since I started Pilates around 3 years ago (when I retired) I am much more agile, I can do loads of DIY, gardening, etc with no backache, note to other men who may have spent their working lives in an office!😉. Great classes Vicky, keep ‘em coming!

    1. Vicky

      Hi David, thanks so much for your lovely comment and your support. I am so glad you’re enjoying the classes. All the best. Vicky

  • Roz

    Loved the structure of the April classes Vicky. I try & do a session most days & feel so much better for it…

  • Anne

    Hi Vicky, I’m late to the party but have just started your spring classes, and have done the first two this week. It’s very motivating to have them lined up as you’ve done. Hoping to make it a more regular thing now. Thank you!
