PRE-/POST-NATAL PILATES INTERVIEW (ZOOM)
Hi all! I am Faith, a pre-/post-natal Pilates instructor. I am currently taking an entrepreneurship course with London Business School, and am tasked to conduct market research on pre-/post-natal Pilates service in London and Singapore. I welcome views from women on this exercise form.
Duration: 20 minutes
Interviews will take place from: 5 Nov - 14 Nov 2021
Redeem a 1:1 40-min pre-/post-natal Pilates virtual session, or in-person in my home studio in W1! Valid for 1 month from interview. Sessions run on Tues/Thurs only.
Faith is a Singapore-born, London-based certified STOTT PILATES® instructor (Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels). She is also specialised in Pre-/Post-Natal Pilates, Diastasis Recti Recovery, and Pilates for Menopause. Besides Pilates, she is also certified as a Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
Her interest in Pre-/Post-natal fitness was inspired by the amazing women she met at her corporate day job as a business development manager. Her boss has 5 kids, and kept running during and after her pregnancies. That was contrary to what Faith knew growing up, where women were relatively sedentary throughout their pregnancies and resigned to their post-partum body issues such as incontinence, weak abdominal muscles etc. If Faith was to become a mum, she wanted to be a fit and active one.
In addition, in her previous Pilates studio in Singapore, her clients were mainly women in their 40s-50s who came with pains, aches, and weight issues that they carried with them for years before finally seeking help. They decided that now that their kids are older, they can prioritise self-care. Hence, Faith has made it her mission to help women a decade earlier so they don’t have to live through these pains.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Faith also founded #Pilates4Fund, a social initiative to raise funds for COVID-19 causes through Pilates. The initiative has raised more than S$3,000 (£1,700) for various beneficiaries including Society of St Vincent de Paul Singapore, migrant NGO itsrainingraincoats, food bank Food From the Heart and the NHS Charities.
