Ruth Hoyle - Introduction

Hi, my name is Ruth Hoyle and I am the business owner.

RuthMy love of fitness and Pilates began at an early age as a competitive swimmer.

I studied leisure studies at Sheffield Hallam University and then went on to train in many different types of group exercise.

In 2000, I trained with Michael King at The Pilates Institute and spent many years teaching freelance classes in the Manchester area.

In recent years, I have trained with Cherry Baker at Modern Pilates. This has taken my knowledge and teaching to a new level allowing me to offer a more clinical and current approach to Pilates. I have specialised training in the spine, abdominals, pelvic floor, hip/knee and Pilates in pregnancy.

I am also a qualified to teach Pilates Studio Apparatus. 

Among many other qualifications, I am also a specialist in pre and post natal exercise. I really enjoy working with new mums at such a special time in their lives.

With a career spanning over 20 years in the health and fitness industry, I bring lots of knowledge and experience. I am extremely passionate about what I do and really enjoy working with everyone, from complete beginners to athletes. 

I pride myself on keeping appraised on all the latest research and education within my industry. Each year I attend courses and seminars to ensure that I maintain an excellent CPD record. 

I have a very strong work ethic and give my all in everything I do. I truly believe that with a goal and a positive mind you will make it every time!

I am a social person and spend my free time with family and friends.  I enjoy swimming, running and competing in Modern Pentathlon. I am part of the North West Pentathlon Hub and represented Great Britian in the European Biathle Championships in 2018. 

In 2015 I was thrilled to win the health and fitness professional award at The Enterprise Vision Awards. 

In 2016, I was proud to be a finalist in the National Community Fitness Instructor of the year.

I am also the presenter of The Healthy Breakfast Show on Chorley FM, Saturday morning 7-9am. My show is all about educating and encouraging the local community to lead a healthy lifestyle.
