Who is Tracy Fuller?

Pilates and me began as a way of exercising my body so I could stay injury free for my other great passion – running

When I became the owner of the Natural Fitness Centre in Eastbourne, where we ran many Pilates classes a week, I decided to step it up and train as a teacher and I’ve not looked back since! I really enjoy my Pilates – not just for the benefits it brings me – but also because I love helping other people learn, enjoy and benefit too. And my members tell me my enthusiasm drives our sessions and they enjoy my relaxed approach – where we have a laugh but work hard too!

Since the end of lockdown in May 2021,  I’ve built up my classes and now run 12 every week – split between Eastbourne, Sovereign Harbour and Pevensey Bay.

Most of my daytime classes are people over 50, with many over 70. My oldest member , who joined only recently is aged 84, and she is doing amazingly well!

Whatever your age and ability, I make sure that you get a lot out of the class and most importantly, you leave with a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is excellent to make you feel better in your body, getting rid of those aches and pains and improving flexibility.

It is for everybody, and suitable whatever your age. My youngest member is 28 and oldest 86!

Pilates is over 100 years old invented in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates. He used it to help injured athletes and dancers return to exercise without causing further injury. In the 1980’s Pilates was developed to become suitable for people undergoing physiotherapy for back and hip issues. It is a great form of exercise suitable for all, and particularly great for those wanting to rid themselves of back issues. People tell me that after just a few sessions they feel so much better and more flexible.

Pilates is non-aerobic and allows you to focus on the movement of your body through ranges of motion. Through these movements, you lengthen and stretch your major muscle groups.

What Are The Benefits of Pilates?

Improved Flexibility

Most modern lifestyles cause our bodies to tighten up and slouch, especially if you sit at a desk all day. This can lead to pain in the shoulders, back, spine and cause a slouch in your posture. It can also lead to issues with the hips and legs. Pilates helps to stretch these muscle groups, relaxing them and improving flexibility. This stabilises your spine and improves your posture.

Balance Muscular Strength

Many of us have a ‘strong side’ and ‘weak side’ to our bodies. Though not a problem in the short term, it can cause muscle imbalances in the long run. By balancing your muscular strength, you can significantly reduce the risk of injury and improve your overall coordination.

Increase Muscle Tone

Here’s a little secret. You don’t have to do 100’s of sit-ups every day to get abs. In fact, that could do more harm than good. Pilates increases the strength of your core, which improves your muscle toning. This is particularly effective around your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks. If you’re looking for that little extra toning, pilates may just be your solution.

Stress Management

Stress is an epidemic in the modern world. People are so caught up in jobs, social media and general life that they forget to take a step back. The breathing techniques used in Pilates are a great way to deal with stress and help you wind down. They help you to live in the present moment, without a care for the outer world. After each session you’ll feel stress leave your body, leaving you in a state of peace and relaxation.

Pilates is a great way to get your exercise in without putting too much strain on your body. It’s great for all age groups and can be adopted at any point in your life. Whether you already have an exercise routine or you want to jump back in, pilates will be a great addition to your current lifestyle.

FAQ

WILL PILATES HELP WITH MY ONGOING PAIN OR INJURY?

Yes! It’s wonderful for rehab of an injury and can help prevent future injuries by correcting imbalances you may have. If you have a medical condition we can ensure that you are safe when you start practicing. So whether you have a work or sports injury, or want to start moving after not doing any exercise for years, Pilates can definitely help.


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR AND BRING WITH ME?

Leggings or tracksuit bottoms with a comfortable top are perfect Pilates clothes. You just need to bring a mat to exercise on. Beginning your Pilates journey doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.


HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Many people say that their back pain is better after just one session! However it’s very important that the exercises are performed correctly which is why at Eastbourne Pilates we encourage you to start with one to ones or in a small group.


I'M OVER 50, CAN I STILL DO PILATES?

Yes! Teaching the over fifties is my speciality and I would love to show you how much it can improve your life!
