Tracy has worked within the fitness industry since 1995, teaching a wide range of 'Exercise to Music' classes, gym-based Fitness Instructing and Personal Training, progressing to Health and Fitness Centre Management.
She has been teaching Pilates since 2003, leaving her full time profession in December 2007 to pursue a solo career in Pilates.
Ongoing training consists of regular workshops and training courses to keep her knowledge thoroughly up to date.
David has found Pilates through a different route. He served for 11 years in the Royal Navy leaving as a Chief Petty Officer Artificer, he was responsible for the maintenance and repair of Aircraft. He then taught Design and Technology for 20 years, specialising in Electronics and Systems. This is something he feels helps him a great deal when carrying out posture analysis. He also taught games and mountain activities at school for many years.
He is a very keen runner with some success, Lancashire V40 Fell Running Champion 2010 and more recently he was 2017/18 Silver medalist in the Mid Lancs Cross Country League and 2018 Lancashire 10 mile V50 Road Running Champion. First V50 in the prestigious Trafford 10K in 2019.
Perhaps the greatest achievement was running for England in the V50 10k Team in 2019.
He is also a Mountain Leader and has climbed Mount Blanc.
Through working with Tracy to improve his running performance and rehabilitate after injury and prevent future injury he has grown to understand and appreciate the value of Pilates. Indeed, his running performances are now improving despite approaching his mid fifties!
