Studio Owner
I have 30 years experience in the health and fitness industry. During this time I have been a fitness instructor, sports therapist and for 5 years the general manager of a busy health and fitness club.

I have been teaching Pilates since 2000. My formal training and certification was from the Pilates Institute of London. During 2012, I  joined Balanced Body Education to train as a Pilates Teacher Trainer. As a Balanced Body Master Instructor, I am certified to run Pilates teacher training courses for Mat, Reformer and other Apparatus. I am also certified to run courses for Anatomy in 3 Dimensions.

Balanced Body is the world’s largest Pilates organisation. My studio is an authorised Balanced Body Training Centre, one of only three in the UK. I regularly attend workshops and training modules to further advance my own knowledge.

Keeley's classes are brilliant and Keeley is an excellent teacher. It is so obvious that she loves what she does.

Keeley is able to tailor the work to suit each person and she works on both your strengths and weaknesses. Keeley is very enthusiastic and wants you to improve, this makes for a very enjoyable class.
