What Our Clients Say

I’ve been a member of My Body Studios for the past 11 years doing Pilates. The standard of the tuition is 5 star.  Any issues you may have such as back, hip or knee problems and like my self, surgery, meant that I am unable to lie on my stomach and bend my toes!  Emma’s always there to advise and suggest alternative postures or offer guidance and assistance.
The classes are friendly and everyone is made welcome. 
I cannot speak highly enough of Emma and her team.
Highly recommended.

Mrs S. McGann – Retired client

Below you can read some reviews from our wonderful clients and find out how we have helped them on their own fitness journey.

I cannot recommend this studio highly enough. Emma and her team are extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Classes are well organised with hands on tuition throughout to ensure you get the best from your workout. The instructors work with you as an individual, modifying exercises if required. Workouts in each class are different every week, so while the moves may become more familiar, you are always guaranteed a good workout. There are flexible options to book classes and a useful website and on-line booking system. Emma also runs introductory/taster sessions for different class types to allow potential clients to experience the discipline before booking a class, I found this really useful when I first started to attend the studio.

Mrs G. Robson – local resident

I have been a regular attendee of classes at My Body Studios for a number of years and continue to love the variety of classes offered and the holistic approach of the studio for mind and body, as well as the overall friendliness at the studio. Emma is a great role model and trainer and has engaged several excellent teachers to work alongside her at the studios. The classes are constantly evolving and the routines change weekly which ensures they are kept fresh and interesting, with different levels of difficulty offered to suit varying needs of everyone attending and accommodate anyone who needs to take care with injuries or weaknesses. I am really enjoying the newer Barre Concept classes which offer a different type of exercise, as well as my regular Pilates and yoga classes.

Mrs K. Fortune – School Teacher

I’m so glad I took my friends advice and started Pilates classes with you. I’m in my fifties and haven’t really exercised for many years but because of your kindness , patience and determination to get me to my goal, my life has taken on a very new meaning in both body and mind.  I’ve loved the challenges of Pilates and barre classes.  The meditation classes have been life changing and not only myself but my friends and family are benefiting from the techniques I’ve learned.  Most of all, I’ve become a confident, happy woman with a new zest for life. I can’t thank you enough.
Mrs S. Wilson – Private client

I have been a client of Emma’s since she started teaching up here in the North East in 2001. Emma and her team of experienced instructors offer an extensive and very varied range of classes, Emma is a very knowledgeable teacher, she is always very much up to date with anything new in the health and fitness industry and is always very keen and enthusiastic to pass her knowledge on to her clients.

Mrs R. Stewart – Retired local resident

Today I had a fantastic one to one session with Emma, this lady is fantastic, her knowledge is outstanding|. She identified straight away areas of tension in my spine and shoulders, something which many others failed to spot ( I am deceptively mobile and compensate with other muscle groups) During the session each movement was clearly explained and tailored to my existing knowledge and it felt great to feel areas of tension, that I suspected were heading for injury if not handled, release and lengthen. I will be back for more!

T. McQuillan – Private client

I have been going to my body studios for about 12 years (can’t believe it!). Emma and the team always have different routines every week which keeps it interesting and covers all muscles in our body. We also do different ‘styles’ e.g. Gyro and using apparatus. Every teacher always checks for anyone’s health problems at the start of every class and explains breathing and each exercise. But ultimately I always enjoy and feel great after a classic Pilates class

Mrs J. McGregor – Retired customer

MyBody Studious is a fantastic fitness studio Emma and her instructors run a wide range of classes to suit every need and ability. A testimony to Emma and her team is the large number of clients, including myself, who have stayed with her since she started the business in 2001. Lesley Atkinson.
