Classes are at our Long Eaton and Kedleston Road (University of Derby) clinics – open to all


We have recently added the oov to our equipment classes – great for challenging the core and spine.

Our Kedleston Road Clinic is Now Open

The doors officially open on Monday to welcome physio, sports injuries, massage and Pilates clients to our new clinic in the high performance unit at the sports centre at The University of Derby on Kedleston Road.

Although we have been working with Team Derby for years, we are delighted to be part of the new high performance unit in the fantastic sports centre.

Our therapists are buzzing to be part of the team at The University of Derby; Rachel who has been working with Team Derby and covering the NBL fixtures since the inaugural win in 2014. Pete an experienced physio has recently joined Impact specifically with this venture in mind. Tom, a sports therapist will also be on site working alongside Team Derby teams during BUCS fixtures and Christine, a physio with extensive Pilates experience (a polestar mentor) will be delivering individual and group Pilates sessions to compliment her treatments.

To celebrate the official opening of the new clinic, we offer a 20% discount off your first physio session, booked during December 2016. Please contact us in the usual way

Congratulations Louise: Now a certified Core Align Instructor

Congratulations to Louise who is now one of only 2 Balanced Body certified core align instructors in the UK.

To achieve this, Louise has completed 40 Core Align personal sessions (proud owner of a fit healthy body!) 14 hours observation and 120 student teaching hours – a huge total of 222 hours including the 16 hours for each of the 3 courses – wow!  Lousie has worked with Pilates instructors from all over the world during her courses, from Greece, Denmark, France (including the Pilates instructor from the cirque de soleil) .

Louise’s first course was taught by Portia Page, balanced body faculty member from California. (have a look at her work outs on YouTube). Louise completed the final two courses with Veronique Coignac, a core align master trainer, and in December, passed her final exam to become a certified balanced body core align instructor.

The core align was designed by a Physio from Belize, Jonathan Hoffman to challenge his sporting clients, bringing the ethos of Joseph Pilates into the 21st century. Jonathon found working with his clients on the core align that he quickly learnt how it helped them become aware of their movement weaknesses and improve them in a dynamic and functional way.

With the core align you can exercise any part of the body, challenging strength, balance or co-ordination depending on the variation of resistance or orientation of the body.

It doesn’t end here, Louise plans to join 2 American physio’s for a further course in April  using the core align for specific injuries, so she can teach it to all the physio’s at the practice. And after she’s convinced Rachel to buy another, we’ll all be able to try the really good stuff on two units at the same time!!!



Pilates, Yoga, Tai Chi….


Another great week at Pilates – the current theme being Wimbledon  – if its good enough for Andy Murray……

Lots of tennis rackets are being used on the reformer, Bosu balls and baby arc; concentrating on rotation throughout the body. The principals are the same but one things for sure although the Pilates classes have been running for over 10 years at Impact, many of the original Pilates students still come today!  What a testimonial!

The yoga classes have been running for over a year now and all classes are nearly full – just a few spaces throughout Friday if you’re interested?

We are also excited to be starting Tai Chi for Arthritis soon – Chris our holistic physiotherapist is currently finalising plans for the timetable – to register your interest then let us know what times you are interested in.

All our classes have a maximum of 6 students to ensure optimum teacher/student ratio. Please contact us for further details
