Pilates Instructor

About Sol May

I’m a Pilates Instructor and have been working at Katie Bell Physio since 2019. it’s no secret that I love Pilates! Pilates to me is all about making your body Strong, Flexible, Functional and Comfortable. The beauty of Pilates is that it can be challenging for everyone, be it your first lesson or your thousandth! I love how it requires concentration and control and teaches you so much about how your body moves and works.

I personally discovered Pilates after having my 2nd child. At the time I was doing very little exercise and it was effecting my health and my mood. I quickly fell in love with the Pilates method and loved how it made my body feel. I had never considered a career in fitness until I started practising Pilates. Since qualifying as a Pilates Instructor I have found my passion in teaching other women what their bodies can do.

The best part of teaching Pilates for me is seeing my clients move more freely and seeing them grow in confidence in their bodies. I recommend Pilates to EVERYONE!

I love working for the Katie Bell Physio team because it’s full of lovely, positive individuals who are experts at what they do. It’s great to be part of this strong team as it’s an inspiring place to work and all the clients are lovely too.

Hobbies, Hidden Talents & More Info

Outside of Pilates I work as a Marketing Consultant. I’m married and am a mummy to a girl and a boy. I love fitness, especially High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I am an amateur cook at home and love trying new recipes (luckily my family enjoy my cooking). Our favourite place to holiday as a family is South of France which we go to every year. I also love running, walking my two dogs and drinking nice wine.

Years ago I graduated from my Business and Marketing degree which lead me to working for great companies travelling the world. After another few years into this, exhausted from travelling, doing overtime and being away from my family lead me to rethink my career choice. In the meantime I had been practising Pilates and was a regular client at a studio. The studio owner encouraged me to qualify to become a Pilates instructor and it went from there. Thankfully, I’ve not looked back since.

As a child I always wanted to be a music conductor, as you can see your child aspirations sometimes change as you get older! I can also speak three languages!
