About Us

As a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 17 years experience, Claire set-up Worthing based Sussex Physio Pilates in 2013, with the aim of delivering the highest level of Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates care for the local community, through a friendly and holistic approach. 

Modern day living, competitive sports, busy work commitments and demanding family lives, can all take their toll on how our bodies function.

Balance is often difficult to achieve….Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates can help.

Sussex Physio Pilates has a team of five Physiotherapists, of which four of them are also Pilates teachers.

Our Pilates timetable has grown from just one 1 class back in 2013, to 16 today.

We have a Mummy does Pilates class that is for Mums of all ages and stages. You will work on your core, your pelvic floor, your posture and a whole lot more... as you breathe, relax and focus on yourself... 
It's 1 hour of 'You Time'.

Our Platinum Pilates classes are Physio-led Pilates dedicated to the needs of the over 50s. 
Combining Pilates exercise, postural advice and Physiotherapy exercises.

Pilates 4 Posture classes, aims to re-balance your body posture after a long day, easing out aches and getting you to re-connect with your core. Perfect for sedentary workers, busy parents, commuters, and anyone looking to improve their posture.

At the beginning of 2016 we moved into our new premises in South Street, Tarring, Worthing. The new practice combines both our Physiotherapy and Pilates services under one roof. We have 2 fantastic clinic rooms for our Physiotherapy treatments and a dedicated studio for all of our Pilates classes and 1:1 Pilates sessions.

Have a look at our timeline of development of the South Street, Tarring practice.

Development Timeline for the new Sussex Physio Pilates premises

 

August 2015

We take a look around an empty commercial premises in South Street, Tarring.  

We take measurements and work out what would go where...

We're excited at it's potential, so put we put in a 'Change of Use' application with the council...

Mid November 2015

The 'Change of Use' is granted.

We finally take the keys to the premises and meet with our builder, John.

Work gets started the next day... Go John!

End November 2015

Stud walls are up, the plasterboard is in place.  

It is starting to take shape and we can now see how it will look.

Early December 2015

Our 'Grand designs' hiccup moment...

We ask John the builder 'Can we knock through to create a door please?'

'Sure' he says.  Then he calls us a couple of hours later 'It could take a little longer than expected. It's a tiled double bricked wall behind the plasterboard, oh and it will need a concrete lintel.'

January 2016

We opened our doors at the start of January with everything ready.

All the building work completed - Fabulous job, Thank you John & Des - Marlborough Carpentry Contractors

The internal and external window designs all finished - Thanks you Alan - Peter Signs

Massive thanks also to:

Marshall's Carpets in Worthing (Carpets & Vinyl Flooring)

Village Interiors in Ferring (Kitchen)

Friends and family for all your support; Nick for your excellent painting skills, Joy for your patience with the Wallpapering and Mark & Tony for your muscles during the moves of the heavy couches and other equipment.

It has been a bonkers journey, with some seriously late nights placing orders, deciding colours/ materials,  long days painting, laying floors and building so much furniture.  It's been hard work, but what an achievement!

Finally, but by no means least... huge thank you goes to our fantastic and loyal clients who have supported us throughout.  Without you, none of this would be possible.
