Free Pilates Exercises

Hi there,

Welcome to our FREE Pilates exercises web site. We are so excited about all the benefits of Pilates and how it can make such a difference to your everyday life that we're GIVING these exercises away so that you can try Pilates at home.

Who are we and why are we doing this?

We are Bob and Carol Bartram, aka
Zest For Living, a husband-and-wife team in Yorkshire, UK. We are both qualified Pilates instructors in our forties and we only took up Pilates in the first place to help us with our own back problems.

We were blown away by the difference Pilates Exercise made to our lives...we're both stronger and straighter than we have been for years. And we're pain-free - it's amazing!

So we decided to qualify and teach this fantastic stuff to other people. And after many hundreds of hours of training and studying and loads of blood, sweat and tears (figuratively speaking! Apart from the tears...), here we are. We teach classes every day, but you can only have so many people in a class, and we want to share the benefits of Pilates with everyone! Hence the Web...

But Pilates Exercise isn't just for people with back problems. Pilates can benefit everyone, from teacher to bus driver, from full-time mum to international athlete. Pilates will strengthen your back, flatten your tum, straighten your shoulders, strengthen and tone your legs, making them look longer and leaner.
Pilates can relax and de-stress you, help you to breathe properly, walk tall and straight and look the world right in the eye!

If you still have any doubts about the benefits practicing Pilates can give take a look at the video below called Is Your Posture Giving You Pain and then decide.

Pilates Promise

There is nothing worse than trying to do a Pilates exercise only to find you really don't understand how to do it properly! You've read the instructions, studied the diagrams and tried to execute the move only to find you are STILL not sure what you're doing and where you should be feeling it.

The only way you are going to be 100% sure is to go to a Pilates class and get hands on instruction. We can't offer you one of our classes unless you happen to live close to us, but we can offer you the next best thing!
