About Us

Malcolm Scott is the founder of Anatomy Pilates which is located in Clontarf and Malahide, in Dublin. Having embarked on a successful commercial career in prominent multinationals, Malcolm through injury discovered his passion for Pilates, which naturally complemented his love of sport.

Malcolm grew up in Sutton thus harnessing his love of all things related to water sports such as swimming, sailing, wind surfing, wake boarding and cliff diving. He pursued swimming competitively, winning many events along the way. His love of sport widened beyond the blue seas to the track with athletics receiving much of his attention in his school going years.

He now enjoys windsurfing and can be regularly seen early in the morning heading west in search of the highest waves and the windiest conditions Ireland has to offer.

Malcolm suffered lower back pain following an injury which led him to seek Physical Therapy treatment. It was the Physical Therapist who recommended Pilates as the most effective exercise regime for strengthening the damaged muscles and preventing further injury. The results were profound in terms of both rehabilitation and the effects on improved muscle strength, tone, mobility, flexibility and power – elements vital to his continued enjoyment of sports.

Mark Redican

As a competitive runner since my teens, competing at both club and county levels, I have become very familiar with the vagaries of trying to manage fitness levels, corporate career and life. With a history of back pain along with the inevitable spurious injuries that go hand in hand with an active lifestyle, I've had to be very inventive in finding ways to maintain my fitness, diet and wellbeing at a consistently high level.


I managed to do this quite successfully through trying out various forms of cross training that minimised injury potential. In 2009 I decided to stop relying solely on the knowledge of others and pursued my own professional education in fitness, Pilates and sport massage therapy.

In my mid 40's I now find myself in the lucky position to not only be able to keep on top of my own injuries and fitness goals, but to be in a career helping others to do the same. With the most up to date knowledge of physical training theory and practice along with my own 30 years of personal experience, I'm delighted to be working with Malcolm in providing Pilates & Rock Hard Fitness Classes.’
