Claires Pure Pilates


I have been attending Claires classes for almost 2 years now and the effects have been unbelievable!! My 20 year back problem has improved dramatically and its been a long long time since my stomach was this flat!!

The classes are fast paced and because many of the exercises are offered with 2 or 3 levels of difficulty, they can be as strenuous as you want them to be!! You really do feel that youve had a great work out after every session! The fact that all the classes are delivered by such highly trained girls from medical backgrounds means you know youre always in really safe hands. I really look forward to the class every week!

I have been attending Claire’s Pilates classes for four years and cannot praise the benefits enough. I initially went to help strengthen an existing hip condition but have also noticed a huge improvement in other areas such as my back. Although Pilates is not cardiovascular the movements help strengthen core muscles and I feel the effects of a good workout days later! Claire is an excellent tutor, the classes are fun and enjoyable and she keeps you motivated throughout. She has the ability to cater for all levels of agility, and gives individual instructions during class to make sure each person gets the most from their workout. The classes are a mix of male and female of all age groups and abilities and I look forward to going every week.

I have been enjoying Claire’s Pilates classes for past five years. I no longer suffer from low back pain! My core strength, posture, flexibility and energy levels have improved and an added bonus – I am very pleased with my toned figure. I highly recommend Claire who

keeps the classes varied and interesting and I feel totally de-stressed after the class. Thank you Claire, Claire and Carmel.

I started attending Claire’s Pilates classes just over a year ago after picking up a lower back/pelvic injury running. The range of exercises has made a remarkable difference in keeping the pain at bay, as well as strengthening my core. Claire is very professional and attentive to individual needs. The classes are challenging, really enjoyable and great for de-stressing.

I have been attending Claire’s Pilates classes for 2 years. After years of suffering from severe back problems which had caused me to be off work for 6 weeks at a time. I felt I needed to do something to prevent further problems. Claire and her colleagues are wonderful teachers.They move around the class ensuring that everyone is doing the exercises properly. They are very approachable and make exercising very enjoyable. Pilates has really improved my quality of life and I can honestly say that I am pain free and more flexible than I thought possible!

Claire O’D’s palates class is great. The exercises help keep the old sports injury’s at bay and ensures the flexibility to maintain that full golf turn. The class can be pretty strenuous but most of all Claire ensures it is relaxing and fun.

I was fortunate enough to attend Claire’s Pilates classes at a time when I was having some injury problems with both my core and my flexibility being the issues. These problems were having a detrimental effect on my football and my ability to train for as hard and as long as I needed to. Claire’s Pilates sessions not only improved my core stability, it also helped me to work on my strength, flexibilty and overall mobility. As a result of this it enabled me to train harder without the risk of injury and ensured that I have been relatively injury free since I started doing Pilates. Claire made Pilates interesting at a time when I had seen it as a chore, it has helped improve me physically and it has also improved my football.
