Latest news

Maternity leave

From the beginning of March, I will be taking a few months off to have a baby. A cover teacher will be taking my Tuesday and  Thursday Barre Fit® classes. Please still feel free to get in touch via email if you have any questions and I will be back to work before you know it!


Online training programmes

Check out just a few of the great comments I've had about some of my online programmes here. A trial version of my Online Personal Training service was launched earlier this year and is proving very successful so far. I plan to to develop and make this service even more accessible in the coming months, so please keep checking back for updates or email for more information.


Cardio Barre Fit®  and Barre Fit®

If you haven't tried Barre Fit® or Cardio Barre Fit® yet, you're missing out. These fantastic classes will leave you feeling fitter, stronger and leaner than ever. We work both large muscle groups and smaller, stabilising muscles, meaning you boost your metabolism at the same time as sculpting the body in ways that other forms of exercise will not achieve…oh, and we have a lot of fun too. See the dance page and timetable for more details.


Book launch. Not strictly fitness...

OK, so I'm doing a bit of shameless marketing here, but I'm very proud to announce that my new Young Adult Fantasy novel is now published and on sale. This is a magical, moving, and at times, heartwrenching story about a 14 year old girl trying to find her way in a world that is completely alien to her.  Find out more at


Hen dos and Parties

Are you look for a fun, original way to celebrate a hen do or even a birthday party? I now offer Hen parties. You could go for a dance party, a Barre Fit® party or (if you're crazy enough) a hardcore workout party!  I'm open to suggestions so if this sounds like something you'd like to do, please get in touch for more information.


Barre Fit® is now officially trademarked and is going from strength to strength.
