About Me – Sharon Skidmore

Words!
Zen is beyond language,
for in it there is
no yesterday
no tomorrow
no today.

Sharon Skidmore

Sharon Skidmore has been in the health and fitness industry and teaching since 1991. As an experienced instructor I have been evolving, through experience in both personal and professional life, and created a multi-faceted approach to not only working with my own body but in helping hundreds if not thousands of people over the years. This is my legacy.

Sharon has appeared on national TV programmes, created her own Pilates Training Manual and is working towards creating a programme that is as complete as her knowledge and experience designed to help all who wish to reach life goals of managing weight and creating a happy healthy mind and body.

I am passionate about delivering completely honest and informed instruction. I’ve consciously sought to deliver training programmes/classes based on my own inherent intelligence of bodywork.

My most fulfilling training was my Yoga teacher training with world renown Yoga teacher Godfri Devereux, wonderful man and Yoga method.

I have the following thoughts on LIFE:

This is my LIFE, I should do what I LOVE and DO it OFTEN.
If I don’t like something, I should change it.
All emotions are beautiful.
My LIFE is about the PEOPLE in my Life and the things I create with them.
I try to LIVE my DREAM and share my PASSIONS.

I am mother to four brilliant children, grandmother to two scrummy grandchildren, married to Darren, loving daughter to loving parents, blessed sister to a great man of a brother, quirky aunty to six quirky nieces and nephews and energetic owner of energetic naughty hound, standard schnauzer, Jessie.

There isn’t much I don’t like in life, apart from broad beans, mean abusive people and being in debt.

I go out of my way to: make a good meal, sleep deeply, play with loved ones.

My own personal play? Off road trail running with trusty dog Jessie and friends, orienteering mountain marathons, training and competing in Olympic distance triathlons, scrammbly hard mountain walks/climbs, dancing in kitchen with my daughters practising pirouettes, reading and personal Yoga practice.

I gained a SILVER medal in Essex Road Relay Championships 2014 (vets category) and more recently a 1st Place (GOLD MEDAL) at Velodrome Duathlon, Stratford, London. Jan 2015.

I work with a wide range of abilities, conditions and ages.
When everybody comes to you with their own unique body and issues, you have to be creative and flexible in your teaching method.
I have a plethora of experience of working with wide ranging special populations/conditions. Trained as a G.P Referral Instructor and a Specialist Back Pain Instructor along with Yoga, Pilates and general fitness and personal training.

Feel confident that I work with the sole intention to help you become the best version of yourself. To help you get stronger and more flexible to help you live your life to the full.

A few years ago I had a very severe back injury which resulted in me being off work for 6 weeks. I had previously had minor back problems. Rather than continue in a cycle of physio, pain management, feeling well, then injury again, I decided to do something about it! So when Sharon put a leaflet through my door, I felt this was my opportunity. The group in Well Lane were very welcoming to me and I didn’t feel at all awkward not doing some of the exercises, as I was very scared of injuring myself again. Two years on I now feel better equipped to manage my condition. Sharon has taught me about the types of muscles i use for different movements, therefore making me more aware of the importance of correct posture. Also, if for example, I’m working in the garden, I always complete a set of stretches before and after thus avoiding any problems. If you’ll excuse the pun, Sharon has equipped me with the tools I need, to ensure I can enjoy activities without being in constant fear of injuring myself. Lastly and most importantly, through this group I’ve made a whole new group of friends and I value this immensely. Thank you Sharon.
