Partners at the studio and in life, Hannah Nicol and Gary Newstead soon discovered that they were often treating the same clients and by combining their skills they would complement each other very well. Both will be based at the new studio and they are passionate about welcoming all ages and abilities to their range of classes, one-to-one sessions and treatments.
Hannah comes from a dance background having studied at Redroofs Theatre School in Berkshire and has both qualified and taught a variety of dance classes from ballet, salsa, jive and tap dancing to aerobics classes for many years. Qualifiying as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2000 and consequently becoming a Member of the Register of Exercise Professionals, Hannah has been teaching daily Pilates classes from beginners to advanced at Sussex Barn, Burnham Market since 2002.
She has recently qualified as a Pilates Reformer Teacher.
Growing up locally in South Creake and a keen sports person, it was a personal football injury that led to Gary's interest in sports injury treatment and rehabilitation. In 2003 he qualified with The Football Association in the Treatment and Management of Injuries in Football. This was followed by diplomas in Anatomy and Physiology, Holistic massage, and further training in deep tissue massage and Soft Tissue Release. In 2018 Gary qualified as a Body Control Pilates Matwork teacher and hopes to introduce more men to the benefits of Pilates.
