Sam founded her East London Pilates business “My Local Pilates” in 2013, after training extensively as a Pilates teacher with Body Control Pilates. Despite always being active, years working as a number-cruncher in the Fashion industry resulted in chronic neck and shoulder pain. Pilates provided much needed relief and reignited Sam’s passion and thirst for knowledge of the human body (she studied Biochemistry at Uni, so lots of Physiology and Sports Science). Re-training as a Pilates teacher was a natural choice for this office worker who couldn’t sit still!
As a now keen cyclist, runner, swimmer (and wannabe Trapeze artist!), she has a particular interest in the application and relevance of Pilates to sport and sports performance. In 2019, she also gained accreditation as a Personal Trainer, eager to bring the benefits of weight training to her clients. Sam is a self-professed adrenaline junkie and in her spare time, when not running and cycling, enjoys hanging off ropes and defying gravity!
