About me

I am a fully qualified exercise teacher and have been running classes under the umbrella of The Fitness League for over 30 years.  Every class has at it’s roots and emphasis on good core muscle tone and posture;  each one working to maintain and improve flexibility, strength, balance, coordination and mental wellbeing.

On moving away for my husband’s work 5 years ago, I continued to exercise at home and friends and past class members asked me to video myself and send it to them so that they could continue doing my type of exercise in their homes too. After 3 years or so of doing this on an ad hoc basis, it has now become Strengthen & Stretch. Lots of people want to exercise at home, to fit in with work, family, life in general and it can fit in with other exercise regimes they may have.  I have recently completed a qualification to add BarreConcept classes to my portfolio; and my new live Barre and Strengthen & Stretch zoom classes have proved a really popular addition to the Strengthen & Stretch experience.  Classes are usually 50/60 minutes long and are choreographed with each individual participant in mind.


The Weekly Workout videos cost less than a take out coffee each week and will motivate and guide you through some great exercises to improve your fitness, strength and flexibility.
