I have been in the fitness industry for more years than I like to admit, I started after the birth of my 3rd baby - trying to lose weight I attended classes at the Squash Club in Moulsham. Back then instructors were mainly Ex dancers and I saw a gap in the market for a 'normal' more approachable instructor. I gained lots of different qualifications along the way - Exercise to music, studio cycling, Body Pump, Pilates, Stability Ball, Groove & Stomp FX, Power Chi yoga, Studio Management and of course Bokwa levels 1&2 and Expert training.
In 1991 I taught the very first step aerobics classes in Chelmsford - no one had even seen a step before that!! My classes were very successful and over the years I worked for myself and have had people working for me. I also worked for most of the clubs in Essex as they came along, teaching Step, LBT's, Pilates, Body Pump, Groove and Stomp FX, slide (anyone remember that) spinning etc. etc. but became best known for Pilates. I was also studio coordinator for LA fitness in London Wall and Billericay.
In 2006 I moved to Spain for 11 years and didn't teach many classes until I discovered BOKWA. I love the simplicity of Bokwa - no dance ability required- it is so easy to adapt for different fitness levels and it gives me a workout like no other since my step days. I loved it so much that I travelled to London from Spain to become qualified in level 1 and went back to Spain to try it out on my friends who had begged me to start teaching again. They all fell in love with Bokwa too so I went on to qualify in level 2 and Expert training and started up a few more small classes in the Spanish countryside for the Ex-Pats.
I have now moved back to the UK for a few years and am teaching Bokwa Platinum and Legs Bums & Tums classes for the more mature participants like me who still want to stay active.
