Olive Keyes is so client focused, you feel a part of a family. Real friendly environment and motivating pilates instructor. I have been attending prenatal pilates to stay fit during pregnancy but also to relieve all the various aches and pains that come in second and third trimester. I feel the Olive offer an incredible experience and knowledge. ( I have done pilates classes elsewhere before i was pregnant and this place is head and shoulders above the rest). I always feel really well looked after and it was been wonderful for my body and state of mind.My mum also fell in love with pilates classes after i signed her up when she started having back pain. We just love how good this is. Expert teaching and nice finishing touches such as helping you with your poses, putting blankets on you at the end during lying down and making sure you are comfortable. I thoroughly recommend Olive Keyes. We are very lucky this is our local studio. Thank you dear Olive Keyes. More...

I have just completed 10 weeks of pilates with Olive and really enjoyed the classes. I was a complete beginner and I thought that over the 10 weeks her lessons showed great progression. By week 10, I could really see and feel a huge difference in what I could do.Olive is clearly passionate about pilates and the benefits of it. She talks the exercises through clearly and demonstrates at each stage. I felt she was always mindful and encouraging of her students and highly professional at all times. I would thoroughly recommend Olive's classes. More...

I took up Pilates with Olive about a year ago. My main goal was to increase my flexibility and strengthen my core in the process. In that time I have progressed from a beginner to advanced level. Olive's classes are very enjoyable. A combination of intense core workout and some stretching & mediation to finish means you come out feeling rejuvenated. Highly recommended. More...

A thoroughly enjoyable and inclusive class. Professionally and patiently led by Olive giving specific and general guidance, which acknowledges the fast pace and diversity of our lives. It’s a great physical workout, but through a steady and manageable pace, allowing for varying ability levels. The various moves require your attention and so you must be mindful and present to engage fully. A great hour to escape, reconnect and do something for yourself! More...

I really can't say enough about this pilates class. I have been running for 5 years and recently had some back problems which was caused by weak glutes/ hamstrings so I was advised to try pilates. I contacted Olive and now 12 weeks in and I have no back pain at all. Olive is such a good instructor she really does know her stuff and whenever I go in and say I have a niggle or tightness she sorts me right out. I would 100% recommend these classes. More...

Since starting Pilates with Olive in January, I have noticed a number of positive changes in my overall well-being. I have had an increase of 200g in my bone density which my Dietician has attributed to my uptake of Pilates. I have learned how to alter both how I sit at my desk and my posture when standing by applying techniques taught by Olive, and this has decreased hip and back pain. My overall flexibility has improved, especially in my hips. I have developed a stronger core and feel that my balance has also improved. By applying Pilates techniques to gym workouts, my recovery from other exercises has been much faster. I have also started to apply the relaxation methods and stretches to my daily routine during periods of high stress which have proven to be very useful in managing stressful situations. I would encourage anyone considering joining Olive’s classes to do so. I have found Olive to be incredibly approachable and patient in her teaching methods. Classes are welcoming and encouraging and incredibly beneficial to both physical and mental wellbeing. More...

This is my second block of 10 week classes to attend with Pilates Olive Keyes. I was initially hesitant before going to the classes as my interpretation was that it would be very female orientated but I was completely wrong. There is a healthy mix of gender,ages and abilities. I suffer with severe back and nerve pain and the classes with Olive have significantly improved my ability to cope with my back issues , built my core and given me the strength and knowledge to build these exercises/stretches into everyday life. Olive is an excellent instructor and facilitator and can understand the needs of those in her classes with severe back pain after having suffered herself. Olive explains the exercises very clearly and explains the reasoning behind these which is critically important to know what the benefits of these exercises are and what muscles we are using. I would recommend anyone to give these classes a try, they are fantastic value for money (10 Classes are typically the cost of 2 Physio sessions!) and Olive's coaching and encouragement is very personal and motivating.

This Men’s Pilates class is a great social gathering for me to meet lads I might not necessarily see very often. It’s brings guys together in a fun but beneficial way. The class has noticeably strengthened my core to help and enhance my ability to carry out every day chores in my job as a construction worker. Olive can’t do enough for us and is very approachable with regard to any queries we may have. Our final few minutes of contemplation and meditation in class every evening leave us very relaxed and send us on our way with clear heads ready to face whatever the world will throw at us.

As arriving mid way through a coarse of classes With Olive’s , I found her very welcoming and Olive found out quickly about any back problems that she needed to be aware of so as not to cause injury, Olive kept a good eye on me not to over do it and to do it correctly while also keeping the other members tested and engaged in what they were doing, Olive has a wonderful way of making you do more than you think or want and after you really feel the benefits ,while all the time talking and encouraging each person to realize their full potential on each exercise , Looking forward to what Olive has in store for us after Christmas and Olive will have her work cut out for her with our bunch , but there is no better Woman to test, encourage and get results than Olive ‍♂️

Joined Olives Pilate classes five weeks ago.Loving this class,Olive limits her numbers per class, and keeps a very watchful eye on our correct positioning, so u know straight away if ur doing it right. Olive has separated her classes to advanced,intermediate an beginners.I am in the intermediate class, this works so well as the group are all at the same level and can push that little bit extra every week. Every week feel I’m making great progress and that I have had a good workout. Would highly recommend trying Olives classes,u’ll Love them.
