Meet Jenny Middleton
Jenny trained with Body Control Pilates in 2006 and has been working as an instructor since. She has taught classes, small groups and individuals on a one to one basis, but it’s her work focused on rehabilitation that is her true passion. Jenny completes regular training courses to keep her skills up to date and further her knowledge in specialised areas such as osteoporosis, hyper mobility and back health.
What do you love most about your job?
I love my job because I love working with people. I work hard to establish a good rapport with my clients which in turn sets a good foundation for creating a fun and encouraging environment. These things build the overall experience that helps those I support to progress through the Pilates repertoire safely, and at their own pace.
Why did you train to become a Pilates Instructor?
I trained in Pilates because I recognised the value that it, as an exercise model, plays in progressive rehabilitation. It’s a perfect follow on from osteopathic and physiotherapy treatment. My level of interest has grown over the years and I am now even more passionate about helping my clients to rehabilitate - and once again reach their full bodily potential.
What has been your most rewarding experience as a Pilates Instructor?
The blanket reward is that I regularly see the people that I work with regain their confidence to move without fear or restriction and recognise their own improvements through doing Pilates.
What do you like most about being part of the Bridge to Health team?
The team have been welcoming and supportive and I really like the holistic approach adopted here. Emotional, nutritional and physical needs of our clients are all taken into consideration and it is great that we work as a team; liaising with each other to optimise our mutual client’s health. My role is to help the clients benefit from Pilates; enhancing the already excellent work being done here.
What is your top health tip?
Health is about balance and moderation, coupled with mindfulness of how one stands and holds themselves. In terms of Pilates my tip is to stand tall whenever and wherever you can. Not only does this good posture create space between the vertebrae and for all the internal organs to function optimally but it also portrays an air of confidence which will help in all areas of a person’s life.
