In the initial free taster session we will chat about your goals and take you through fundamental movements that may improve posture, overall strength and a foundation for safe practice. I will assess what exercises would be beneficial in your program, so you have a program that is tailored to achieving the results you want!
Time to set those goals
Having clear, concrete goals creates results! We will create long term and short term goals, your workouts will be based on these goals and your progression monitored. Having short term goals each week helps keep you motivated, on track and progressing.
Food for thought and thought for food
Throughout training I can give nutritional advice, helping you achieve healthy eating habits and an understanding of what foods support your body.
Tailor-made packages and programmes
Building on my experience in dance, personal training and Pilates, I can create a tailor made package for you ensuring you get the best results. I use the My PT Hub app which allows you to access your personal workouts and an exercise video library for extra support when I am not in the gym with you.
Continual training and professional development
I regularly attend professional development courses in the area of fitness, health and movement. My most recent achievement is gaining my Biomechanics trainer qualification in 2019, joining a team of only a handful of trained professionals in Wales. The knowledge and skills I gain from this will be passed on to you, ensuring a quality service.

HelenMarie, personal trainer
I attended some of HelenMarie’s Pilates classes at my local gym, after returning to Pilates following eye surgery last winter. The classes are excellent and strengthening but I was also so impressed by HelenMarie’s calm, professional manner and that she went out of her way to ensure I was looked after.E. Maynard
Excellent classes with a teacher who has a good understanding of each individual’s requirements and tailors exercises accordingly to meet their needs, whilst at the same time retaining inclusivity and ensuring that everyone feels part of the group. This is helped by classes being small and friendly, enabling personal one to one support when required. HelenMarie is a warm, welcoming, dedicated and enthusiastic teacher with a caring and supportive approach – but she challenges the class too and inspires us to keep trying! The hour really flies by, but each week I feel the benefits and look forward to developing even greater strength and flexibility through ongoing participation in these great classes.
HelenMarie has transformed the way I approach training and fitness. From years of ineffective training and diet, Helen Marie has provided an excellent and varied training programmes with clear focus, nutrition advice plus great support along the way.Alex Mills
HelenMarie manages to combine a practical, results driven approach to exercise with very personalised sessions: she really goes out of her way to make sure that you are in the correct position to extract maximum benefit from each exercise, she listens and encourages you to go that little bit further and achieve results.E. Maynard
HelenMarie has a professional but friendly manner. She is an excellent teacher – always calm but also genuinely interested in helping everyone progress safely and at their own pace. Her explanations are clear and easy to understand. Pilates class has become a highlight of my week! Absolutely recommend.Jo McGill
I thoroughly recommend attending HelenMarie’s pilates classes. I saw an advert on line for a beginner’s class in Canton and went along on my own. I was made to feel welcome straight away in a small class of about 10 people.
HelenMarie is very patient and tailors the exercises to meet each individual’s needs/ abilities. I am definitely feeling the benefit.J. Knight
HelenMarie is an excellent PT. She is very friendly, approachable and makes me give my best, making me strive to get better and better each week. Not only has she helped me build confidence with exercise (in particular with weight training), but she is in tune with keeping posture correct – which for me is key, given legacy injuries. In addition to this she also gives me valuable nutritional advice to help achieve my goals. I look forward to each of my PT sessions and I can really see the results! Thanks HelenMarie!!!S. Harrison
HelenMarie has changed the whole way I approach food and exercise and has taught me to respect my body. She has been more than just a PT for me and I have reached massive goals that I didn’t think was possible 2 years ago, mentally and physically. With the help of HelenMarie, we have rehabilitated a sprained and weak ankle, and she has helped me to use exercise to keep anxiety at bay. The structured programmes that HelenMarie individually creates are easy to follow and make me feel like a super woman! I cannot recommend her enough!F. Williams
I’ve been going to HelenMarie’s Pilates class regularly for the best part of a year, and have enjoyed every minute of it!
HelenMarie brings a lightness of spirit and fun to the class whilst ensuring individual safety and care within each of the moves. She is always careful to find out if any of us has any injuries/ physical issues so that the exercises can be adapted accordingly, and we then get the best from our body and the class!
Since going to HelenMarie’s Pilates class I’ve gained in strength and flexibility, and look forward to continuing improvement!
HelenMarie is a brilliant trainer who has been a massive inspiration for me. She’s much more than a PT – she’s sorted me out with advice about diet, keeping healthy – and life in general. I can’t recommend her enough.T. O’Shaughnessy
