Meet Ellie Brown

MEET THE FACE BEHIND THE STUDIO DOORS

You will find Ellie Brown in Greenwich Park, running around the streets of South East London, popping her head into one of her two studios or delivering online classes. What you won’t see is Ellie Brown standing still…

What started 17 years ago as a love for exercise and for supporting and connecting others has led to a thriving and happy business focused on the well-being of communities.

WHAT KIND OF HEALTH BUSINESS DO YOU HAVE?

Greenwich Fitness and Pilates is a health and well-being business based in Greenwich. We work online, in our Greenwich studios and in the surrounding outside spaces. Our foundations are our shared values of happiness, compassion and trust, and we encourage everyone who joins our non-judgemental, safe and supportive classes and activities to grow and find their own pace.

We have two dedicated spaces: one is a standalone studio and the other is a wellness centre with a reformer studio, a mat-work studio and three treatment rooms where we offer over 12 different therapies such as physiotherapy, massage and osteopathy.

We also have Greenwich Runners a running group based in Greenwich Park and our Buggy Fit sessions: Buggy Runners.

The most rewarding part of what we do is our free community sessions where anyone can turn up, meet like-minded people and enjoy the company of others. We have our social, supportive walking groups: Mummy Walk & Talk and Walk/Run & Talk as well as our social running groups: Sunday am; Thursday pm social and our Monday School Run.

In 2020 we developed our online classes and have been offering over 50 classes a week during the pandemic year of 2020/21.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PROVIDING FITNESS SESSIONS?

I started offering classes in the basement of my Greenwich home, and in Greenwich Park, back in 2003 and expanded into studios in 2012.

WHAT IS THE VISION FOR GREENWICH FITNESS AND PILATES?

Our vision is to help meet the mental and physical needs of a community – a local, work or other group – in a non-judgmental, safe and supportive environment where everyone has the space to grow at their own pace.
