Hi, my name is Simone Arlott owner and instructor of Activate Inner Strength Pilates, a small home based studio in Buderim designed for private 1on1, 2on1 and small group sessions personalised for each individuals needs and goals.
I first discovered Pilates through a home based studio in Mackay and from my first session I was hooked. From my teen years, I was always into sport and conscious with health and fitness, growing up with a father who worked in Personal Training, I was always testing out new and different varieties of exercise regimes to keep myself fit. I got into crossfit, running, spin classes, yoga, bodypump, HIIT training, weights, you name it, however I have not found an all rounded methodology like Pilates.
I considered myself to be “strong” but pilates challenged my body at a new level. Working the deep intrinsic muscles, posture and positioning so each exercise was done with the best technique. There is nowhere you can hide in Pilates and I love that.
I know when I am practicing pilates, especially in a small studio with the personal attention you get from the instructors you will be challenging your body in the correct way, avoiding any injuries and building strength in the right places, where you are the weakest.
After practicing pilates for a few years I decided this was the path I wanted to go down for my career. I saw the benefits of this methodology and how it helps people. Not just as an exercise/fitness regime but to help with pathologies like MS, injury prevention and rehabilitation, pre & post natalconditioning, sports conditioning and the mind body awareness. I wanted to share the Pilates method with everyone and help others myself.
I completed my Nationally Recognised Training of Diploma in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology and started teaching classes and privates across 3 different studios on the Sunshine Coast.
I am a fun energetic instructor that loves to motivate you, encourage you and support you through your sessions. I get to know my clients and create friendships so I can deliver the support you need. Whether it’s to modify for an injury, guide through the techniques or give you that push you need to strive for bigger results.
I am very passionate about what I do, I’ve seen the benefits first hand of people I’ve trained and how happy it makes them.
I love pilates because it is for everyone. If you have any doubt pilates may not be able to help you, I encourage you to come and try it out and let me show you how rewarding this methodology is and how it can improve your life.

Pilates uses the principles of concentration, control, centering/alignment, precision, breathing and flow to work the body from the inside out.
