Keeping fit requires huge amounts of effort and commitment but it’s become part of my life and I couldn’t do without it.

  • Carolyn Onland
    Fitness Instructor

    I have had a varied and sporadic interest in fitness all my life, but the big change came in 2016. I decided, like many women do, to get fit and healthy for my wedding, I hired one of the Urban Energy Fitness Personal Trainers and the rest is (modern) history. To say I enjoyed the training sessions would be an understatement, seeing the progress I was making from session to session, I began to inspire myself with the results. I decided if I could get such incredible results, I wanted to inspire others to do the same. I began to qualify as a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer. When 2017 came around I had left my job and joined the Urban Energy Fitness team where it all started for me.
