Anita is a Dane who has lived in Denmark and Abu Dhabi for the past 20 years. Her love of physical fitness started at a young age, when she became a keen basketball player, eventually playing in the best league in Denmark.
After moving to Abu Dhabi she changed her game to netball and she belonged to the netball community here in Abu Dhabi for 7 years, playing for Abu Dhabi in the Intergulf Tournaments.
Anita started her Pilates journey after experiencing arthritis pains through her neck and shoulders, which eventually forced her to stop playing netball. “I did Mat Pilates for approximately six months and then I was pain free. It was a revelation to me that I could free myself of this pain and I started taking a real interest in Pilates”.
Anita became a Stott Pilates Instructor in Mat, Reformer, Stability Chair, Cadillac and Ladder Barrel and has specialised in Injuries and Special Populations. Furthermore she has taken Neurokinetic Therapy Level 1 by David Weinstock and The Roll Model Method by Jill Miller
She has taught in Abu Dhabi and Denmark since 2015.
What you can expect from training with Anita is a very individual approach to each client in the class, and an increased understanding of your own body and your individual needs.
“We all have different postures, strengths and weaknesses and through this understanding of individuality, I try to facilitate the best all round workout both in individual and group classes”.
“Pilates is a skill, that once learnt, is a lifelong benefit!”
