I enjoy working at Fierce Fit because it’s a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for us to really focus on achieving the goals of our clients.
As our lead Pilates instructor and physiotherapist, Kate joined Fierce Fit with a physiotherapy degree, 5 years of experience as a specialised musculoskeletal physiotherapist and APPI Matwork certifications at level 1,2 and 3 under her belt. Phew – pretty impressive!
She started her Pilates training in 2012 to aid clinical rehabilitation with her patients. Little did she know she’d soon be hooked on the Pilates method after seeing the results with both her patients (and herself!)
When she isn’t treating in the clinics or teaching Pilates, Kate is probably doing Pilates at home! Or seeing family and friends.
What would you say to a female client who is not sure why she should join Fierce Fit?
Why should you join Fierce Fit? The instructors and therapists have excellent knowledge and work as a team to build your fitness and prevent injury along the way - you really can’t go wrong.
Why is Personal Training different at Fierce Fit than anywhere else?
Fierce Fit is different because the female staff are friendly and approachable - its not intimidating like other personal training services. Fierce Fit also includes massage, Pilates and physiotherapy, as well as personal training, to really optimise your results.
What’s your fitness story? Do you do it for a hobby/just job? Any motivational story?
My biggest hobby and fitness fave is Pilates. When I started I was amazed at my class instructor’s strength and technique, and saw her as an inspiration to master the basics before progressing onto higher levels. Before I knew it I was up to advanced level. It took some time and perseverance but the variety of exercises, use of small equipment and brilliant teaching from my instructor made time fly! I realised that when you find an exercise that you love it becomes a fun hobby and not a chore, with various health benefits as a bonus!
How do you motivate someone to join personal training and work hard?
Best advice to get motivated and work hard - Keep focused on what you want to achieve and visualize your end goal.
I love my pilates classes here with Kate. The classes are small and feel very personal; everyone works at the right level for them. That doesn’t mean Kate doesn’t challenge you, it’s no easy ride, and I have definitely seem improvements not just with my neck and back pain (which is why I started) but also in my fitness and muscle tone. Whether you are a beginner or a pilates pro, this is a brilliant place to continue your pilates journey!
The Pilates classes are fantastic! The instructors deliver fun sessions that they tailor to each persons ability in the class. I would definitely recommend them!
I can really recommend having Pilates here. Excellent highly skilled instructors who make the sessions go really quickly. The benefits of the Pilates instructors all being physiotherapists is huge. A big thanks to Kate.
This is possibly the best place to do Pilates in Manchester. Instruction is led by qualified physiotherapists so there's plenty of focus on technique, which I've found lacking in classes elsewhere. Kate Hindley's classes are particularly good - she caters for beginners, intermediate and advanced and is always really upbeat, positive and friendly. Class sizes tend to be moderate so you get plenty of individual/tailored advice. I'm really sorry to be relocating out of the area as I doubt I'll find a place as good as this. I've also had physio massage here to iron out knotty back and shoulders and thought that was excellent and very reasonably priced too. Double thumbs up!
