Kelly is the founder of East London Pilates and has been a healthy, happy Pilates teacher and personal fitness trainer for over 20 years. She started practicing Pilates as she found the method a really intelligent way to train her body and mind. This led to her starting ELP so she could spread this method of training in an affordable, non-intimidating way to as many people as possible. Kelly hopes for those attending her classes to walk away having had an hour out of their busy day to destress, move and feel better.
Having expanding ELP over the last 10 years, Kelly has introduced more instructors enabling the timetable to grow. Only bringing trainers in who not only match Kelly’s level of qualification, knowledge and professionalism, but also ensuring everyone matches the ethos of the business –
To provide classes for all in a non-intimidating, friendly and approachable way. Allowing people an affordable option to destress, move their body and help ease themselves of pain. In today’s world, an hour is a valuable amount of time. Often used to pick the kids up, do the grocery shopping, stay late at work – always something for someone else. ELP wants to provide everyone with the opportunity to take an hour for themselves away from all the other stresses of life.
We’re more than just teachers and clients.
