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 a keen runner and have  generally kept in shape.  Running was a particularly convenient way to keep fit whilst working as Cabin Crew for British Airways.
After having my family I suffered an illness which left me with a lifetime medical condition.   I had to leave the job I loved and 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 

I have achieved qualifications in Level 2 Gym Instructing, Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training, Pre and Post Natal programme writing, Level 3 Exercise to Music and Indoor Cycling.
In addition I hold workshop certificates for  Kettlebells,  Vipr training and Running Technique Training.   My Sports First Aid Certificate is current and renewed every 3 years.
The varied selection of training sessions and classes  I offer are fast moving, friendly,  flexible, adaptable, achievable and suitable for anyone aged 16yrs upwards!   See ‘Classes’ and timetable for more details.

** These classes are taught as a course and therefore the dates will vary.
For more details please contact me through the 'Contact me' area of the website. 
I also teach at Cranleigh Golf and Country Club - Please contact me for more details.

About Bootcamp

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.


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.




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

Using all appropriate training techniques I will train you for your event - 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!


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.


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 varied exercises.   Formats changed weekly to keep the body challenged and working hard within personal fitness levels.    This is the best whole body workout your money can buy.


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.

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.
