Anita has almost two decades worth of experience training and working in classical ballet companies. Throughout her career she has worked with dancers to rehabilitate them after injury and since coming back to London she has been working for years with her private clients while forming her company Strength and Grace.
Anita combines Ballet, Pilates, HIIT and targeted stretching into her sessions. There is a real emphasis in educating her clients in the exercises they are performing insuring they have a true understanding of why they are doing them but also how to translate this into their everyday life. Having either experienced personally many of the injuries her clients are experiencing Anita aims to rehabilitate and target key muscle groups that significantly reduce the chances of their injuries happening again.
“I am extremely results driven. Not just in rehabilitation but also in targeting specific areas of the body that you feel you would like to change. I work with our resident nutritionist to help you achieve optimal weight, health and exercise performance.”
Carl was in the military for 20 years and during this time trained his fellow soldiers as a physical training instructor. Carl has taken part in Olympic and long distance triathlons, 10km cross country races and functional fitness events throughout the whole of his career.
As Carl got older he transitioned from long distance endurance sports to weight training, focusing more on building muscle to increase bone density and muscle mass. This form of training decreases the likelihood of injury and age related diseases while also helping level out hormone production which can increase longevity.
“I find great satisfaction helping my clients get results. With a little determination, and encouragement from myself your goals can quickly become reality.” - Carl
