The reason I started Oli Greiner Pilates, Personal Training & Group exercise is because exercise really helped me to feel more confident in myself. I struggled with my body image as a teenager, being overweight & found that exercise was a great tool to help look & feel better. I remember looking around gyms when I was 16 with a friend of mine. We stood outside one gym for 15 minutes building up the nerve to go in, in the end we walked away because we felt so intimidated by all the musclebound men…. Fast forward to today: after working & training in gyms for the last 5 years, I decided to offer something different. Rather than offering cold, impersonal classes why not create a community where people can exercise without feeling intimidated? An environment that is warm & welcoming, where people can actually have fun while they get in shape with an instructor who cares.
