I dislike gyms and have over the years tried many exercise classes and dropped out mainly from boredom. However, with Zip Pilates and Nicole, I have found an exercise class which I look forward to going to and which has already in just over a year given me greater flexibility, better posture and the full use of a badly broken arm.

Client R.H. Shawford class

I really felt the benefit of Nicole's Zip Pilates courses when skiing this year. The even core strength gained from the classes helped enormously with the stamina needed for a full day on the slopes. Even after a lot of 'poling', I was amazed that my arms didn't ache!! Thanks Nicole.

Client J.C.L. Littleton class

I have tried several different Pilates classes but it wasn't until I started with Nicole that I really understood what I was supposed to be doing.  Her clear precise instructions and attention to detail ensure that the class is always challenging and fun.

Client L.N. Shawford class 

Before Pilates, my lower back around the sacrum was diagnosed as being unstable giving rise to periodic back stiffness and discomfort. Since attending regular sessions with Zip Pilates for over a year, I have not had any reoccurrence of those problems - it seems to have done the trick!

Client D.T. Harestock class

I view Pilates as a long term strategy to improve my physical strength and well-being. For a number of years I've been told by physios to undertake Pilates and eventually one of them handed me over a list of all the recognised Body Control Pilates (BCP) instructors in the Winchester area. Nicole Ambrose of Zip Pilates was one of them. I cannot begin to recommend Nicole and Pilates enough to anyone. The classes are small, which means that we all get the attention we need, the exercises are varied (no class is the same) and are explained in a clear way. Nicole is very professional and goes out of her way to ensure we all get the most out of the class and Pilates. It is energising, relaxing, stimulating and hard work - all at the same time!

I have been attending Zip Pilates, with Nicole as my teacher, for over a year now. I find her thorough and clear in her approach and with a real concern for each individual's physical welfare. Nicole consistently reminds us about the key aspects, such as positioning and breathing, and has infinite patience when we are not quite getting it! The numbers attending regularly are a testament to the quality of the classes.

Client C.B-B. Littleton class

I have been practising Pilates with Nicole for nearly a year now, having had both one to one lessons with her and also attended her classes. I love every class I attend and find the exercises challenging as well as relaxing and fun. There is always something new to learn, and my body feels much more tone and supple and I'm learning how to stand tall and upright in Pilates Stance!

The lessons give me a chance to learn something new whilst exercising my body and leave me with a great sense of well being.
