Gemma is from Spain, she had an active childhood Learning ballet, artistic Gymnastics Running & swimming. She was competitively involved in the Swim Spanish Federation . As a teenager she was into running & biking as well.
She studied & gained a Bachelor of Social Work, & worked in this field for several years. At the same time she was still into her fitness & also taught spin classes, & body pump at a gym. Gemma suffered low back pain a lot so in 2008 she decided to study Pilates.
She landed her dream job at a Pilates Studio in Tenerife, where she says she was mentored by an amazing instructor, & she completed her Pilates qualification : FEDA Spanish Federation of Aerobic & Fitness.
Gemma & her partner came to New Zealand approx. 5 years ago & wanted to settle here. To gain her residency Gemma took a job in Social work. Once Residency was granted she decided to gain a NZ Pilates Certification with PEAK Pilates........... Keen to be working back in Pilates again!
When I opened Pilates New Plymouth, Gemma made contact with me to let me know she was available to help out if I needed her. We kept in touch as I was impressed with her experience & enthusiasm. She put me through an awesome Reformer workout recently & I just know clients are going to enjoy her teaching them.
So It is with much happiness & excitement that I am able to welcome Gemma as a Pilates Instructor at Pilates New Plymouth.Back to News
