Annabel qualified with distinction as a Yoga Teacher having practiced yoga herself since 2001. With a running background, she is keen to promote the benefits of a regular yoga practice, not just for runners but for all sports. Yoga's unique versatility offers an excellent complement to sport, and is suitable for everyone, helping to improve strength and coordination, prevent injury and rebalance both the body and mind. Annabel's classes are based on a Hatha Flow style of yoga, meaning postures are connected with movement and breathing to create heat within the body, whilst holding the postures improves strength and flexibility.

Harriet studied ballet from the age of 3 training at The Royal Ballet School and with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. She has been trained by some of the World’s most elite ballet dancers including Jonathan Cope and Irek Mukhamedov. After a long and successful career, Harriet left the dancing world behind to start a family. After she stopped dancing she searched for a fitness class that could tone her body in the same way that ballet had, but couldn’t find anything that compared. So she decided to use her knowledge and expertise to create a new ballet inspired workout so that everyone can tone their body like a dancer.
I have been a fitness instructor in the chilterns area for over 35 years. I'm a founder member of FitProUK. Along the way I've launched STEP Aerobic in the 90's, taught many genres of fitness, mentored instructors , lectured , consulted & written published articles.
My years of experience with [mainly] women from many backgrounds & circumstances has given me a great deal of perspective and a huge learning curve. And , like so many of my clients, I've also had a very challenging personal life. Thus, I have developed my own unique instructing style.
Don't live your life just to be fit, just be fit enough to live your life.
Are you a Peri, Present or Post-Menopausal woman with no desire to 'Boot Camp' or run for miles or have 'washboard abs' , but still want to work happily hard in good company doing age appropriate effective funky exercise regimes with your peers? Are you are daunted or uninspired by exercise, or feel uncomfortable in big gyms or strict personal training? Perhaps you are a very mature novice or still technically post-natal because you've not formally exercised since your last ( grown up) baby? Are you struggling with weight, injury, health issues or post - operative rehabilitation? Then I aim to help. At Halton I offer a class that specialises in Abdominals Core & Pelvic Floor fitness, incorporating correct gait and posture. So, if you are 'fifty-ish' with a couple of 'issues' , don't want to pretend to be 25 but utterly not ready to be plopped into the OAP category please feel free to enquire further for the Halton class or others. Please see my Facebook Page @AliNewellFitness for my Biog, Testimonials, Forums , Timetable for classes & P.T. & Contact info.
All enquiries are most welcome & your consultation is free. I do look forward to hearing from you.
