"Fitness has always been important to me; I have always enjoyed being active, playing sports, dancing and I loved going to dance-fitness classes. Changing careers to become a fitness instructor has proven to be a very worthwhile decision. I have created my business ' fit 2 the beat', to share my love of fitness and help motivate others to find their love of fitness. Exercise should not only be fun but also make you feel great, so I offer a number of different classes that put the emphasis on the fun as much as the workout. Hopefully you won't realise just how hard you are actually working! All of my classes are suitable for adults of any ability; I always offer different options so that you can tailor the class to your fitness level.
FITSTEPS and DDMIX are fabulous dance-fitness classes which will put a smile on your face as you work both your body and mind! Dance- fitness is wonderful because it combines my love of dance with keeping fit.
WATERWORKS FITNESS offers a different aerobic class that will give you a whole body workout in the water with less impact for the joints. The choreographed routines to upbeat music will get you smiling in no time!
I am always keen to train to teach new classes so watch this space!
I look forward to seeing you at one of my classes very soon!"
