A FITNESS expert-turned-business woman has expanded her business and plans to take on apprentices.

Amy Kellow began Everybody Pilates in Kings Road, Southsea, in 2009, and since then has juggled teaching full-time with the demands of running a company.

But she has now taken on her first member of staff, Anna Page, who learned Pilates by taking Amy’s classes before training to become an instructor herself. Amy said: ‘This has been my life, but that’s what it’s like when you run a small business.

‘Now I have Anna here I can start really thinking about looking after my existing clients more, helping them be more comfortable in the studio, and how they can progress.

‘I’m interested in offering apprenticeships as well, and I’m going to be starting my own teacher training courses by the end of the year, and as part of that I want to establish an apprenticeship in the studio.’

Amy has praised other businesses in Southsea for their welcome.

‘It’s a network, we all support each other,’ she said.
