PilatesOne is run by Pilates instructor Gina Siniscalchi. She is an always positive person, with many years of experience in teaching this discipline and more.
Her professional career began at an early age with the study of classical dance, a passion that soon turned into work. She became a professional dancer and after about twenty years of teaching in the world of dance, she decided to devote herself to the Pilates method.
Since 2006, the year in which she graduated in Italy in Bari with the Italian Fitness Federation as a Pilates matwork instructor, she has constantly updated herself with specialisation courses, conventions and masters in order to offer her students the very best.
In September 2019 she decided to face a new and challenging experience by closing the Italian office and moving to Malta. In order not to leave her Italian students, she decides to continue to follow them through lessons via internet with Skype.
