ali about fitness

a little about me

how i got to where i am today and what i can offer you 

about me

For many years I've been keen on running & generally keeping in shape. It was a particularly useful habit to keep up when I was working as Cabin Crew for BA as running was so easy to fit in around an irregular working pattern & also when 'night- stopping' in various places. 
When I had my family I suffered a serious illness which left me with a lifetime medical condition to cope with. As a result I had to leave a job I loved & find
a new direction.

going forward

MY health and fitness became more of a priority - I decided to train to become a Personal Trainer and have not looked back! I'm back out meeting lots of different people and providing excellent customer service with inexpensive and effective exercise sessions- I couldn't be happier!

what i offer 

Along with the Diploma in Personal Training I hold numerous other qualifications including Pre and Post Natal programme writing & Exercise to Music. 
I teach a range of classes including Circuit Training, Bootcamps, **Fitball. **Megafit HIT, **Running sessions and of course Personal Training . My sessions are fast-moving, flexible, achievable, friendly, affordable and suitable for ALL
ages & abilities. 
If you want an exercise programme that REALLY works- Look no further !

Found in
Parish Magazine

I have been attending Thursday morning bootcamp since it started and rarely miss a session as I have finally found an exercise that not only gets me fit but that I enjoy. I love being outside, there is always something interesting to watch, the air is fresh and keeps you cool and when we finish I feel refreshed and invigorated. I like the mix of static exercises and running around, and that Ali provides all the equipment for you even the mats. I bring my baby along in her buggy and I really appreciate this as it means I can fit exercise into a morning when she is awake rather than having to do it in the evening and as I'm always short of time this is really helpful.

About
Personal Training

I booked up for just a few sessions with Ali at first but enjoyed them so much that I decided to make her fitness programme a regular thing. My personal training sessions are tailored to suit my own exercise needs and preferences, they are always varied and Ali seems to never run out of ideas to keep me going. Her approach is utterly professional but I always feel like I am having fun. The flexibility of the programme is ideal and fits in with my London commute. I can’t recommend Ali highly enough, you will see the benefits straight away.

our classes

Boxing

A 45 minute boxing session working with partners incorporating boxing sequences and bodyweight exercises. Boxing workouts are fun,fast moving, exciting and high intensity. The nature of the session will strengthen the core, improve co-ordination and enhance muscle performance.

Event Training

Got a challenge? I love a challenge! We will work together to train you for an event and where
Possible I will be there at the finish line! Anything is possible!

Running Club

Running around the local area for up to 1 hour according to abilities. This is a fat burner! For motivational reasons, running in a group is often easier. This is a great way to start running or to increase your distance if training for a specific event - it ticks the cardio box on your exercise list – don’t fancy the run?? Bring your bike instead!

Fitball

Exercising using the Fitball is an excellent way of developing and strengthening the three muscle layers of the core. Core stability is vital to establish and maintain optimum support during everyday life. It helps maintain balance, posture, stability function and sporting techniques. Fitball is a fast moving class which will add fun and variety to any fitness programme.

MegaFit Bootcamp

30 minute blasts of high intensity exercise. If you do this 2 or 3 times a week you will be well on your way to a high level of fitness, by incorporating all the muscles and taking them to their maximum potential by fast repetition and zero tolerance on rest. This will up your fitness levels due to cardio input. It will trim and tone the body due to a reduction in bodyfat as a result of the increase in the metabolic rate. This is a must if you are pushed for time!

Circuit Training

One hour of fast moving exercises covering all the main muscles of the body and lots of the small ones too! Its fun, it’s loud and its good! 24 different stations - 2 circuits – This truly is the best whole body workout your money can buy you…

Bootcamp

45 minutes to 1 hour of invigorating extensive exercise incorporating all the major muscle groups. Designed to develop and maintain muscle memory, co-ordination and performance. These sessions are a fun and sociable way to improve fitness and as always, exercises are adapted to suit all abilities and age groups.

Buggycise

Getting you back to fitness after your new arrival in a friendly, fun and social way. An oppurtunity to meet new mums while exercising along with your baby and buggy. No pressure, just as much or as little as you want to. Done in a class normally lasting between 45 minutes and 1 hour.

Personal Training

At our initial meeting we will chat about your goals and exactly what you want to achieve during your sessions with me. We will look at all forms of exercise - pick out the ones you like and talk about some you don't! It is my job to gather enough information from you to provide you with an exercise plan that will be realistic, fun, effective, achievable and affordable. Using different programmes and equipment, together we will work through the exercises to ensure you perform them correctly which in turn will maximise the benefits to yourself. I am 100% committed to helping you achieve the results you are looking for and, if i'm not with you while you are exercising, I will always answer a call, text or email so you don't fall behind!
By setting some goals and targets there will always be something to aim for to keep you motivated and on track.
