Think about it…
What is fitness?
Moving well? Being strong? Having a good mindset? Fitness involves a range of aspects which are both physical and mental. On the training side, each coach has their own philosophy which shapes their approach towards how they train themselves and clients.
With the addition of Matt to the team, we can now offer personal training to those who especially enjoy Pilates and dance, as well as anyone who may be pre/post natal.
Here’s a recent Q&A with our new addition
- Q: How did you get into fitness?
- A: I started classical ballet at the age of 6, so I guess fitness has always been a massive part of my life. As I got older and turned professional, the gym became my stress relief. I used to go to the gym after rehearsal to chill out and take my mind off dancing. Eventually the gym became my passion and I started spending more and more time there.
- Q: Lets imagane you were on death row, what would you request for your last meal?
- A: It would have to be a chicken curry, peshwari naan and a cobra beer.
- Q: What’s your favourite exercise?
- A: Has to be the back squat. It looks simple enough but there is so much detail behind it. It’s a great exercise for working your entire body and with so many variations you can never get bored.
- Q: Which type of clients have you worked with?
- A: Working in a commercial gym has allowed me to train a variety if clients which was a great way to learn as much as I could. I found the majority of my clients ended up being young professional females looking for fat loss, as well as strength and muscle gain. I feel my background in dance helped me successfully achieve their goals with them.
- Q: Favourite beer?
- A: As a treat occasionally l like a Leffe. A strong but tasty Belgian beer.
