The doctors advised surgery. After an injury resulting in three slipped discs in his back, John McCallum was getting used to living with pain. 

But inspired by his wife´s Pilates practice, he began training and soon found his body reformed John shared his discovery of Pilates with the doctors. They were sceptical at first, but seeing his transformation, they began referring their patients to John and his wife, Anita´s, studio. 

People continued to come; the studio had to be expanded. For twelve years, the couple worked in Malta, and three years ago moved to Jalon.“We came here to retire but we couldn´t stop. We knew how much Pilates was helping people,” said John about their studio in Spain.

Equipped with innovative resistance equipment, The Pilates Centre offers a training method, inspired by Joseph Pilates, using a spring-base apparatus. The studio welcomes people from all stages of their journey, creating individualised plans.

As a beginner, a senior, or struggling with trauma, John and Anita bring over three decades of experience to assist you in your transformation. Individual sessions and group classes are available.
