After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and having two children, I lost confidence in myself. I started attending Pilates classes with Clarice and realised that my muscles were getting stronger and my fitness was improving.

Clarice is kind and understanding by nature, and her experience helps her relate to people who have an illness or are recovering from an injury. Clarice had to coax me into attending an interval training class as, with my wobbly balance, I didn’t believe I could do it.

Her class was full of people of all shapes, sizes and ages, all trying to achieve their own personal goals, not judging each other. Each week things got easier and I began enjoying the classes.

Clarice has given me the confidence to attend gym classes and go running. After working with her for over a year, I feel more energetic, fit and healthy than I have in years.
