Winslow Fitness Classes are run by me  (pictured very excited when my GBR trisuit arrived!)

I first qualified as a fitness instructor back in 2003 when I was living in London, doing an office job I didn't like very much! My big passion was exercise, having been a keen runner for years and completing countless marathons, half marathons and triathlons, as well as being a gym and class addict. After years of fitting training round work, I finally decided to make my passion my living, and qualified initially to teach aerobics. I then spent a manic summer training to run 2 marathons, working full time and spending my weekends at the giant YMCA in London training to teach all sorts of other fitness related things.

In 2006 we moved to Winslow and I set up a Legs Bums and Tums class; 51 people turned up, and a business was born! I now run several classes a week in Winslow,  teach at two fabulous gyms in Leighton Buzzard and Brackley, and also keep on top of life as a busy mum of two very active girls, a sporty husband and a giant dog! I love my job; helping people feel better about themselves and understanding the importance good health and fitness have on your overall state of mind and well being. I love challenging members to push themselves and attempt things that they didn't think were possible!

My own fitness is very important to me - I have run almost 20 marathons and an ultra, regularly compete in road races, triathlons and duathlons. I have qualified for the GB Age-group team for Standard Duathlon (10k run, 40k bike, 5k run), representing GB at the World Championships in Denmark in 2018, winning a bronze medal at the European Champs in Romania in 2019, & will also compete at the European Champs in 2020. I'm also Event Director for Buckingham parkrun.
