Knutsford Triathlon Club (KTC) recently invited Fit4Life Knutsford to design a 6-week online programme of Pilates to help support their athletes’ training regime. During March, Fit4Life (F4L) Director, Greg Marshall, worked with Matt Wackett, Head Coach at KTC, to agree the custom designed Pilates programme which started in April and completes in May.
KTC receives an exclusive live Zoom class each week, led by F4L Pilates Teacher Charlotte Taylor. In addition, KTC receives recordings of each class to share on their club YouTube channel. F4L has also been providing KTC with a number of additional specialist Pilates exercise training clip videos to complement their class programme.
Head Coach Matt has received really positive feedback from the KTC team. He said “The programme of bespoke Pilates sessions from F4L has been an extremely well-received and beneficial addition for members to supplement their swim, bike and run training. Being adaptable and providing high-quality virtual sessions has been the aim throughout the pandemic and working with F4L has helped us to continue offering this to KTC members”.
Fit4Life founder and owner Linda Marshall was delighted that her team could help to support the KTC athletes’ extensive training programme; she says “Pilates builds balance and strength and is a great cross training activity for triathletes, who are at a higher risk of postural imbalances, muscle strains and overuse injuries. This is where Pilates becomes an excellent discipline as one of the most effective forms of body maintenance and injury avoidance for any Athlete. I’m really pleased my team have been asked to develop a Pilates programme for KTC!”
