About Exercise Angels


My name is Ruth Hoyle and I am the owner of Exercise Angels. Here is a little bit about my business.

Exercise Angels delivers Modern Pilates classes, specialised pre/post natal classes and bespoke one to one personal Pilates training in the Lancashire area.
Exercise angels also offers a small range of clothing and pilates equipment ready to order via the website and annual Pilates retreats to Ibiza, Spain.

The growth of mainstream Pilates in the UK began in the late 90’s, prior to this, people thought Pilates was some kind of training for pilots or maybe even pirates! Occasionally, I still get enquiries for pirates training.
Popularity of this form of exercise spread from America and classes started to pop up everywhere in the UK.
I started my training in 2000 with the highly regarded, Michael King and have seen the popularity of Pilates unfold.

The health and fitness industry continues to grow, despite the economy it seems people will find the time to dedicate themselves to mind/body exercise programmes such as Pilates.
An increasing focus on core training, integrative exercise, mind-body fitness and functional fitness has brought the universes of fitness and Pilates together.

My core business is Modern Pilates. This method of Pilates is a unique and clinical practice, based on the original exercises designed by Joseph Pilates . 

The training to become a Modern Pilates teacher involves continual assessment by physiotherapists and some of the best Pilates practitioners in the UK. To be qualified to teach Modern Pilates offers the customer a quality level of teaching, highly regarded in the health and fitness industry.

Mission Statement -Exercise Angels will deliver skilled, certified and experienced teaching, with the aim of giving positive change to each individual through Pilates. Exercise Angels will aspire to help every client achieve their own personal goals in a positive, energising and welcoming environment. When you join Exercise Angels, you become a member of the team.

I hope you have enjoyed reading a little bit about my business. I hope to continue to grow over the next 5 years. I am a glass half full, type of person, as, I feel there is no point to negative thinking. As Joseph Pilates once said ‘Every moment of our lives can be the beginning of great things’

I feel very proud to be part of the royal connection ... What an honour!
