Welcome, to my site – thank you for dropping by! I’m Sophie, a Personal Trainer giving my insight into my career in the Fitness Industry. I first started working in Health & Fitness as a 14 year old gymnastics enthusiast, when my coach at the time asked me to help her coach the younger gymnasts. I jumped at the chance and took my Level 1 Coaching Qualification 6 months later. At this point I realised my love for teaching and passion for exercise and knew the direction I wanted to take in education.
Exercise and sport has always been my one true passion having competed as a gymnast, a synchronised swimmer, and a competitive swimmer growing up. My love of challenging myself has expanded over the years into challenging my gymnasts and challenging my clients.
- I specialise in Ante and Post Natal exercise and training clients with disabilities; these elements of Personal Training really challenge my thinking but I love it. The best part of my job is the diversity of being able to train different ages, abilities and people with different goals – no two days are the same.
- I am a Level 3 Qualified Sports Massage Therapist, I absolutely love being a masseuse as I am constantly learning – experience is everything; each practise I do, broadens my knowledge of another. I really understand how the body works and helping clients to rehabilitate injuries from both perspectives gives long term results/benefits.
- I am a group workout instructor and teach several classes. I teach spinning/Indoor Group Cycling – a fantastic cardio workout; I have further trained to become a Stages Cycling Instructor now too. I also teach Metafit™; an internationally taught class (based on the HIIT principles)… Read my post here on the benefits of Metafit and HIIT training in general to learn more. In 2017 I qualified as a Pilates Instructor, something I am also very passionate about!
I am bursting to share ideas and tips that I experience every day. I practise what I preach and this is a little snippet of my journey of all things Health and Fitness. Follow me on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sophieganderton/ for more inside to my life – work and personal.
I aim for my website to hopefully inspire and motivate as I do with my clients every day. Please feel free to contact me with any question/comments you may have – I am based in the beautiful setting of Dorset, South of England.
Thank you again. xo
