    Mum of two, passionate about sports and fitness, yet in the wrong body for my passion! Keeping fit requires huge amounts of effort and commitment but it’s become part of my life and I couldn’t do without it. I played rugby for a ladies team, enjoy running around with my boys and there’s nothing I like more than the satisfaction of achieving something I thought I couldn’t do.

  • Marketa Gersch
    Fitness Instructor

    Something that I’ve learnt since being a full-time working mum to 2 young children, is that I never just magically “find” time, I have to plan and make time to exercise in order to create a healthy balanced lifestyle for myself and my family. After all a happy mummy equals a happy family right?

  • Eve Moore
    Fitness Instructor

    Alongside fitness I love food, and not just eating it. I am also really interested in nutrition and the affect food can have on your performance and overall wellbeing. Back in the UK I worked as a health trainer helping people to make positive lifestyle changes, particularly through nutritional changes to diet combined with exercise participation. I have worked with lots of people with severe health complications and love helping people achieve their goals and make positive changes to their health and fitness.

  • Bryn Pratt
    Fitness Instructor

    I specialize in physical transformation, helping people to make drastic changes to their physique and as a result, becoming a healthier version of them. Since I have been helping people to achieve their goals, one of the most popular forms of exercise that I teach is boxing. Exercise through boxing is a great way to improve your fitness, as well as being extremely addictive and satisfying.

    I think it’s important to push ourselves out of our comfort zone which is why I love trying any new sport or challenge!

Swimming is also very important to me; it’s a life skill, a fantastic form of exercise as well as a form of relaxation.

  • Penny Kapinkoff

    I started to take more of an interest in fitness when I hit my late teens and discovered I couldn’t just eat what I wanted and stay trim anymore. I started with running and gradually became addicted and interested in more variety like boxing, Pilates, boot camp & swimming. Whilst I was studying at university I also qualified to teach swimming and found this a really fulfilling part time job

    I’ve been passionate about sports ever since I was small. From a very young age I have been involved with swimming, athletics, gymnastics and handball. My primary years in education were even focused on sports on a professional level, which gave me good grounds I still benefit from. I didn’t aspire to be an athlete in my later life however the love and talent for sports remained.
