Trainee instructor Zoe Botton was a French teacher in Northland before moving to Gisborne in 2016. She coached her childhood sport of gymnastics to a competitive level and was a swimming teacher in the UK between babies and family over 10 years. She coached adults and children of different levels and abilities and led circuit training classes to complement different athletes' programmes.
Zoe says: “Three years ago, I was unable to walk up a hill due to a hip injury. After attending Pilates classes on a regular basis, I saw massive improvements that enabled me to try a new sport since moving to Gisborne. I expect to complete my Pilates instructor training by the end of 2017. I am excited to be part of the Movement First team and thankful for the support from staff and clients.”
