A bit about me: I love the strength side of training and I thoroughly enjoy helping people push through the fear barrier of weight sand watch them achieve something they never though possible.
Hobbies: Out with the gym, I volunteer with Beavers and I love anything arts and crafts. You can also find me binging some sort of box set on TV. I enjoy cooking and trying new foods and recipes.

CLAIRE

CLAIRE

INSTRUCTOR

It’s been an amazing few months working with All Strong and they have gotten some team together! I now some of you already know me but I just wanted to take this chance to introduce myself to some of the new-comers. My name is Claire. I am a mommy to an amazing 3 year old and we love going out and keeping busy. We’re usually out walking the dog, out on the bikes, or spending time together as a family. I first qualified as an aerobics instructor in 2014 while I was working as a lifeguard and swimming teacher. I qualified as a Zumba instructor around this time too. Ever since then, fitness has been a very big part of my life, and from being someone who exercised VERY rarely, I was hooked. I am very passionate about a healthy lifestyle and keen to encourage others to give it a try too. I am currently working on getting qualified as a gym instructor, and following that I hope to do my Level 3 Personal Trainer. Look forward to seeing you all.

CAITLIN

CAITLIN

INSTRUCTOR

A bit about me: I love lifting heavy and my own training focuses on compound lifts and increasing my strength. However, I do also enjoy working up a sweat in my sweat class- Step it Up! It’s been amazing instructing such a big energy class and seeing people push themselves and being proud of their achievements. It has also been great fun writing articles for Women’s Wellness group on the All Strong app. It has been liberating sharing my own experiences with other women.
Hobbies: Outside of work, I enjoy reading fiction. I have two degrees in English Literature and just obviously love books. I also enjoy finding yummy vegan recipes and cooking them for my boyfriend and family.
I asked my friend to describe me in 3 words: thoughtful, caring and hilarious.
In the New Year I hope to continue running my step class as well with getting involved in the 8 week Fitness to Feel Better programmes. I am also excited to contribute to our relaxation section on the app with some tapping mediations.
