Our philosophy - at the BODYCONDITIONING studio we believe in the use of intelligent exercise, tailored to individuals needs in small and friendly classes. It is based around a matwork class, primarily working on strengthening deep core muscles and improving suppleness to promote good posture and muscle balance.
A variety of exercises, (some old favourites, some new), thoughtfully selected and appropriately modified, resulting in a balanced programme which progresses as you improve. In essence, we work on improving core stability, flexibility, balance, posture and coordination.More Information
Acupuncture and Cupping
Both ancient Chinese treatments used in the management of musculoskeletal problems including neck and low back pain, sports injuries, tennis elbow and arthritic knee pain.
We have a variety of classes, each of them have taken on different levels, influenced over time by the members of the class and of course the instructor. For instance, there are different types of intermediate classes ranging from “relaxed and steady” to “robust and pacey”.More Information
Lucy qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1989 and, after taking an MSc course in Manipulative Therapy in 1992, went on to head the Physiotherapy department at the Royal Ballet Company in Covent Garden. It was during this time that Lucy was introduced to the concept of Pilates.
In 2001 Lucy left the Royal Ballet Company to broaden her skills as a Physiotherapist and establish the BODYCONDITIONING studio. Whilst developing her own business Lucy also worked as a consultant to Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Niche Joshi Clinic in Wimpole Street, London.
What our clients say
I first started doing Pilates six years ago when I joined a class at Body Conditioning in Gamlingay.
As a beginner I found the individual help and guidance, given by Lucy Haith and her team, to be invaluable in picking up the correct techniques, and being able to make good progress with core strength.
I currently attend the mens weekly class, which I find most enjoyable – it really helps me to keep on track with my flexibility and strength goals.
I particularly like the small class size and the fact that the teacher pays close attention to our individual needs and tailors exercises to suit each person
The Body Conditioning studio is a bright and warm place, my spirits lift just waking through the door. I felt welcome and safe the first time I attended a class. That's not easy to achieve when you are nervous and in pain but Lucy has created a wonderful atmosphere.
I have been doing Pilates with Lucy for over 12 years now and it is a great workout for the body, and far beyond a professional approach to the body. The equipment is excellent and the classes small enough for almost one to one tuition. Lucy is an amazing, informative instructor with much knowledge and teaching skills and always makes the classes very enjoyable. A joy to go to her classes.
I recently started with Lucy doing 1:1 Pilates. What made me contact Lucy was not only her knowledge and experience but also that she had a reformer.
Lucy encourages you and asks for your input and above all challenges you and pushes you to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefit.
I would encourage anyone with any previous injuries or anyone who would like to have balance in their health and well being to start Pilates right away for overall strength, stability and flexibility – having Lucy to support you is the ultimate bonus!
Personally after her sessions I feel two inches taller with renewed strength and energy and always look forward to my next session.
