MY BIO

“I literally qualified at 18 years old with my initial teaching qualification and started to teach Aerobics & Step at a local Women’s Institute hall. It was really just for some pocket money while I still worked at Boots full time deciding whether I should go to Uni or not. My classes grew and I started to just love teaching people and inspiring girls & mums to get fit, I eventually landed a full time job at Fitness First which was due to open and soon became the talk of the town. It was here I developed a passion & love for fitness; I was lucky to travel the world with Fitness First, working in Hong Kong, Singapore, Asia and Australia. My career spread over 15 years and I became a successful National Fitness Manager but still managed to keep to my grass roots love of teaching and Personal training while over seeing clubs and Managers. Eventually I came home and needed some time out with family, within months I met my husband to be and very quickly we wanted to start our own family after getting married. After two beautiful children and being a lucky stay at home mum, I was beginning to get itchy feet, I knew going back into the Fitness Industry with a major commercial role was going to be extremely challenging with two young children and the thought of childcare wasn’t something I was keen on, especially since my memories are always having my mum at home when I was young. I took the huge and daunting step to start my own business, using my experience and my first love in teaching & Personal Training. It seems so strange that I have gone back full circle to what I was doing at 18/19yrs of age but it just seems so natural to me. Zestfit was born in 2010 and my feet literally haven’t touched the ground. I work around the children, I do all school runs and drop offs and ensure I am always around as much as I can at the weekends. The flexibility I have is the best, nothing like I would get at a global brand. It takes courage and conviction to believe in yourself and go ahead and do it – but I’m lucky I have the support around me to push my dream on. I won’t look back because I’m always looking forward to a brighter, better future. Being a mummy and a successful businesswoman. I now have achieved my dream by opening my own fitness boutique a unique place for females and males to feel safe, not intimated and motivated! It really is the Queen of gyms!
