About me

Ruth PartingtonI initially trained as a nurse in London. I specialised in cardio-thoracic nursing in New Zealand, where my interest in health-related fitness began.

On returning to the UK I moved into the fitness industry, gaining qualifications in exercise to music, gym instruction and personal training. I also worked in health club management and instructor education.

After 15 years in the fitness industry, I discovered Pilates. I was impressed with the effect it had on my own fitness and its precise, intelligent approach. Pilates has now become the main focus of my work.

I qualified with Body Control Pilates in 2003 and now teach the method to individuals and groups in Poynton and Macclesfield.
