Our Story

Annette Watson, a Sunshine Coast Local, joined Pilates on Centre way back in 2004 as a newly graduated fitness student. Over time she  proudly took on the role of manager.

When the opportunity arose to take over this family run business it made perfect sense to continue it’s legacy.

Living locally with her husband and two children, Annette leads a healthy and active lifestyle. She and her team thrive on giving amazing personalised service and attention to detail that only a studio with this breadth of experience can bring.

Pilates on Centre is not only a place to exercise, it is a welcoming community that fosters relationships.

“I feel so blessed to bring you this amazing method of exercise and embody its traditions into every session”

Each session is never the same

Keeping our class sizes to a maximum of three people per session, allows us the room to reach individual goals and create a full mind/body workout.

The Instructors

All our Instructors are fully qualified with a minimum of 10 years of teaching experience.

Our passion for the Pilates industry inspires us to stay up to date with all the latest research, allowing us to share this knowledge within our studio community.
