About Gina Dowle

I love seeing results! That back pain you have? I can help it. That niggling pain in your shoulder? I can help solve the issue. Pilates is all about realigning the spine which in turn makes all your other limbs perform at optimum level. I can help rehabilitate the body from injuries and operations. I am also trained in pre and post-natal Pilates and also specialise in recovery from breast cancer operations.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I offer either pay-as-you-go sessions or a package of ‘buy 10 sessions and you get the tenth session free’.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I do a consultation and postural assessment to acknowledge the areas of the body of concern then bespoke all sessions to the Client.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
The STOTT brand of Pilates Instructor training is globally recognised. The course is incredibly thorough and practical and written exams have to be taken in order to be a STOTT certified trainer (which I am). Emphasis is not only on Pilates movements and modifications to suit the Client’s fitness levels and posture type but also on how to recover from injuries and operations.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Look for an instructor who can do a postural assessment and who has done additional courses specific to the Pilates discipline. This will show that extensive training has been completed and you will be in safe hands.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Are they aware of any aches or pains in their body that they want to get rid of? Have there been any injuries- past or present that could have caused a weakness in the body anywhere? What do you want to improve about your body? Eg posture? Strength? Just generally feeling better all over?
What are some good examples of past customers?
I’ve got a couple who I have trained for the past 3 years. They have both significantly improved their upper posture alignment and upper body strength so that their shoulders do not roll forward anymore and their shoulder pain has disappeared. I train a golfer who suffers with lower back pain. I cater his sessions to keep his lower back strong and mobile which has lessened his pain significantly. I trained a professional England cricketer. After a few sessions he said his bowling improved because he could put more power behind the ball after improving his core strength.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I get a lot of clients who come to me with shoulder and back pain. I have not yet had a Client that I couldn’t help. A typical example is one of my clients who had a very weak core and daily pain in his shoulders from hunching over a desk all day at work. Within 2 months of x3 sessions a week, his pain had gone and he was much stronger in his body.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was a competitive dancer for 17 years. Pilates was a great conditioning class to help strengthen our muscles and core strength. Then I was in a car accident which caused awful whiplash and back pain. After using a physio, an osteopath and a chiropractor, Pilates was the only thing that got my posture back. I learned to be an instructor so I could help people with Pilates like it has helped me.
