Fit Pro Awards 2014: A night of glamour.

Excitingly I was recently named as a finalist for the National Fitness Professionals Awards. What a complete shock and honour to be recognised in this way by the fitness industry! So on 18th July I went up to London for Fit Pro Live 2014. This was my first time at Fit Pro Live and it was buzzing! Loads of great seminars to attend and masterclasses to watch. I enjoyed watching the Tabata team work themselves extremely hard as well as seeing the latest Insanity class being done by a lot of crazy Fit Pro’s 😉

Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of Pilates related content but I did get to meet with Claire Mockridge another pre/postnatal Pilates instructor and we had a good catch up. Networking and meeting others in the same field is so important for me.

I had a 10 minute interview in front of a panel of 5 judges, rather nerve-wracking and I certainly didn’t say quite what I probably should have said, but they were lovely and I survived!

The evening event itself was full of glamour. The initial challenge for me was to get both children settled and the baby to sleep. Once that mountain was crossed it was time for dressing up and some Prosecco. I didn’t win the award but another pre/postnatal instructor won an award on the night so that was fabulous!

Pilates with Priya: Fit Pro Awards

A great night of networking, top music and food.  It’s inspired me to keep going and keep doing what I’m doing but also opened my mind to think about the next stages for Pilates with Priya. Watch out…

Somehow, and I really am not sure how, but Somehow I’ve made it through to the semi-finals of the Fit Pro Awards. Now I’m just little me, running my little Pilates business around my family. We have over 100 people through our door every week and now have 3 other instructors teaching for us, taking us up to 19 classes, 3 antenatal, 2 postnatal, 1 step, 1 ballet and 12 normal Pilates classes with 1-2-1 session too. Life is busy!

I love my job, in fact I love it so much I taught throughout my pregnancy, literally up to the end and then was back teaching my postnatal class 3 weeks after having baby. Pilates helps my body and I love imparting the knowledge and showing others how it can help them. We have a lot of laughter in our studio and a lot of hard work too. Behind the scenes there are many late nights, a lot of admin, reading and practice!

I’m delighted to have made it through to the semi-finals, PLEASE help me get to the finals by voting for me and writing a review about us.
