Angie Gregory, Owner, The Well Centre

I qualified as a physiotherapist from St Thomas Hospital too long ago to mention. My main interest has always been musculoskeletal problems and exercise. I strongly believe that 'movement' in many forms helps to resolve many problems both physical and mental. Pilates therefore appealed as it is a form of exercise that can be adapted to suit almost anyone.

Personally, I love running (I try to run regularly with The Regency Runners , long distance walking (aiming to do race to the Kings-52 miles along the South Downs this year), and trekking in Ladakh and just bagged my first 5 Munroes) and skiing whenever I can!

My daughter has now qualified as a midwife in Bristol and I have two sons still at home.


Helen Tudge

I qualified as a physiotherapist with Anne in 1986. After general experience within the NHS I developed a particular interest in back pain and worked for a consultant led Back Pain Clinic. I always felt that the patients who were most successful in overcoming their back pain problems were those willing to take responsibility for their posture and undertake appropriate exercises. Teaching Pilates fits perfectly with this view.

 

I enjoy keeping fit and active myself (the older I get the more I seem to enjoy it) and belong to local running and climbing clubs where I have met some truly inspirational “mature” athletes.  I try to combine exercise and physical challenges with good-natured fun or an excuse for a holiday. This year it was Medoc Marathon (fancy dress. run through vineyards sampling their produce)   and  a week in Mallorca in May  for my first Half Ironman. ( almost last but finish line still open ! )

 

Other than work and exercise my two teenagers at home and eldest daughter at university keep my life busy.

 




Vicki Redpath

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1998 from the University of Ulster. I worked in Glasgow for two years before moving to Leamington Spa.

I worked in the NHS from 1998-2012, specialising in musculoskeletal outpatients for the latter ten years. I have also worked part time in private practice and as a visiting tutor for Coventry University in the past.

I decided to complete my APPI matwork instructor training in 2013, having first become interested in pilates in 2007 while attending postnatal pilates classes.  I gained my APPI matwork certification in October 2013.

My work is now mainly based in this area teaching classes and 1:1’s.

I am a mum of 3 and in my (somewhat limited) spare time I enjoy running ( I completed 2 wolf runs last year and like to enter the odd 10km race) and dance based fitness classes ( zumba and currently African dance aerobics).

Catherine Levack

I started Pilates with Angie more than ten years ago and eventually took the plunge to do my teacher training.

I qualified as a Level 3 Mat Pilates teacher three years ago and remain passionate about the benefits of Pilates for both the body and mind.

I teach classes in my free time and it still feels more like a hobby rather than a job because I get so much pleasure from seeing clients gain in strength and flexibility.

In my day job I am a senior editor, working for a small agency which produces magazines for housing associations in the West Midlands

I’m a keen runner – for fitness rather than speed – and regularly pound the streets of Leamington to keep the middle age spread at bay.

My eldest is at Uni studying to be a P.E. teacher and I have a son and daughter living at home.

Lucy MacDonald

I graduated from Manchester school of physiotherapy with a first class BSc Hons in physiotherapy in 2001 I have worked in Manchester and London, large teaching hospitals, where I gained a huge variety of experience, especially in rehabilitation. I also did voluntary work in an orphanage in Albania , treating children with Downs Syndrome and teaching them to walk, as well as how to have fun!! I have always swum as a child and growing up ,to national level . At university I began playing water polo. I went on to work with British swimming as a physio accompanying them to both national and international events which was a wonderful experience. I now specialise in musculoskeletal out patients and orthopaedics and work part time at the Nuffield in Leamington. My special interests are in exercise therapy, particularly Pilates and peri natal exercising and care. Since 2009, I have been teaching a mixture of classes here at the Well Centre, but most recently have become the in house, ante and post natal teacher, since having my own children Out of work I am a mummy and am involved in numerous, toddler activities. I play netball in a local league and swim whenever I get the opportunity. I am generally active, maybe hyper active, and am keen to get involved in anything new and exciting.


Liz Cohen

I graduated with BSc (Hons)Physiotherapy in 1995. Following this, I worked in the NHS in Suffolk and then Warwickshire developing my interest and expertise in Neurology and elderly care. I had a change of direction in 2004 by becoming a Clinical Tutor at The University of Birmingham developing the next generation of Physiotherapists.

I successfully completed an MSc in Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation in 2009. In 2012 I returned to a clinical career in Neurology and general elderly care and started my APPI Pilates training. The Pilates fits well with my client group and I have recently started seated classes to target these clients which they are thoroughly enjoying.

As a neurological specialist I take an eclectic approach to my treatment depending upon the clinical presentation of my clients and the evidence base. I use the principles of the Bobath Concept, PNF, Functional Electrical Stimulation, and have recently completed training in the Myofascial release technique.

To relax I have 2 young children who keep me on my toes! We love camping as a family! When I have 5 minutes to myself I enjoy keeping fit and making jewellery
