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 with my centres new bikes. I also teach Metafit™; some people may have not heard of this even though it is 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 began studying to become a Pilates Instructor. Something I love and am 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 including 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 or if you want me to train you I am based in the beautiful setting of Dorset, South of England.
Thank you again. xo
