Girlguiding“I can’t express strongly enough how good it is to be able to take 45 minutes out of a working week to do Pilates with Julia. Everyone knows sitting at a computer all day isn’t the best position to be in but we go back to our desks energised and ready to take on the next challenge. Julia comes to our work and we use one of the bigger meeting rooms with desks pushed to the side. Prices for Pilates classes are normally so prohibitively high Exercise in the City is good value, and it’s a massive bonus to have Julia come to us so it’s not a stress or bother getting to a gym or other venue.”  Catherine – Girlguiding head office

MCF Corporate Finance - Pilates“We have lunchtime Pilates classes at our office. What a great way to vary the day and recharge for the afternoon. Pilates takes away the stress that builds up in our shoulders sitting down so much at the computer. It sets us up for the week.”
Clare – MCF Corporate Finance

“Julia has been giving a Pilates class weekly in our London Office for over a year now as part of our wellbeing offering.  She is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable instructor and we consistently receive excellent feedback for her classes.”
Lin, Facilities and Administration Coordinator – WPP Ltd

London Sport“I’d never considered doing Pilates – I always thought that I was into something more energetic like hockey or football – how wrong I was! When I received the email at work asking about joining lunchtime classes, I decided it might be good to try something new. We did the classes in one of the unused rooms in our building at work and I really got into the swing of it! I couldn’t believe what a workout it was and how much my tummy hurt afterwards! I really got the bug for it. Julia is a fantastic teacher and very inspirational. She let’s you do the exercises at different levels that suit how flexible/strong you are feeling that day and is always very forthcoming with encouragement – even if her 30 second plank always feels a lot longer! “Lizzie – Funding and Facilities Officer, London Sport

“Booking with Exercise in the City was seamless, once I had submitted my interest in booking some sessions for DNEG’s wellbeing week a call had been arranged. Julia was knowledgeable and really understood what we wanted to achieve, and suggested classes that I hadn’t considered which worked really well. The sessions were great especially Deskercise which was so informative and will really make a different to day to day life!”
Sophie Alder, HR Advisor, DNEG 
“I had been meaning to join up to an exercise class for months and the opportunity to join after work classes here have been just great. The teacher we have is so friendly and manages to give options so that everyone benefits from the classes. For some of us we need a gentler approach whereas others are fitter and can take on greater challenges. However everyone enjoys themselves and leaves each week feeling that they have progressed”
Fiona Jackson – Hospital Director  – Chase Farm Hospital, Royal Free Trust
Pilates at Pivotal

“I found the idea of going to a class after work quite daunting with people I don’t know… so having classes here, during lunch time with people I know is a real benefit”.  Bea –  IT Support specialist, Pivotal
“As the coordinator of training and well-being, I’m frequently asked ‘wouldn’t it be great if we could have exercise classes in the office?’ We opted for Zumba mixed with Abs Blast and the feedback was excellent. This was a lively upbeat session with great music and an energetic instructor. The best bit was it was integrated into our usual day at the office!”
Ola – Learning & Development Coordinator, Starcom MediaVest Group

“Being new to Pilates, I was unsure what I would really get out of it, but the classes have been both enjoyable and challenging.  Our teacher is so nice and her classes have taught me exercises that have improved my core strength, whilst leaving me with a sense of relaxation.  The classes are suitable for everyone because of the varying movements she teaches that differ in difficulty.  The convenient location and time makes it easy to go each week and it’s really good value for money”. 
Ali, Detective Constable, City of London Police

“It has been great starting Pilates at work. Julia is a brilliant instructor and the class always leaves me feeling relaxed and energised. Even though I’m in the same building I feel a million miles from my desk!”  Kirsty – Speech Therapist, Islington PCT
