Latest from Luisa...

Luisa is a hardworking and dedicated Personal Trainer, Yoga Teacher and Fitness Instructor, based in Minehead, in Somerset on the foothills of Exmoor National Park. Established in 2015, Luisa's female-focused fitness business now reaches hundreds of women locally, and thousands of women online, every week.

She is passionately busy managing the charity-funded Beach Hotel Fitness Suite in Minehead with SASP, teaching weekly fitness and yoga classes both at the hotel and at her very own boutique garden studio 'The Yoga Cabin', organising three successful, women-only weekend retreats for 2019, and planning her first 10k trail run alongside training a bunch of fabulous females who are up for the challenge!

Luisa is a qualified Personal Trainer, Yoga Teacher, Fitness Instructor and Level 3/Level 4 GP Exercise Referral Consultant with industry-leaders Active IQ. She also holds certificates in Circuit Training and Kettlebells with Active IQ, as well as being a Detox Specialist and Sports & Exercise Nutritional Adviser with the Health Sciences Academy and holding qualifications in Freestyle Fitness Yoga, Mindfulness & Meditation and as a registered Boxercise instructor. Luisa is fully insured, has Level 3 Outdoor First Aid training, and is a current member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).

She is extremely proud to be an Ambassador for the Sport England campaign, 'This Girl Can'; a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets (!).

Luisa is controversially bucking the social media trend of posed and filtered 'perfect ab' images and these days will instead most likely be posting motivating quotes, inspiring hormone help, fab reviews from female clients or a scrummy, nourishing wholefood recipe. She prides herself as the most enthusiastic person you will ever meet when discussing the benefits of feeling truly well and balanced in all areas of life, and is dedicated to helping women eat well, with enjoyment and ease; to encouraging realistic, postive mental health; and to overcome the fear of embarrassment in exercising which holds so many back.

She comes to the fitness industry with 11 years in the police service under her belt, a BA Hons degree in Education, Teaching & Learning, and a refreshingly open and supportive attitude. She is utterly in love with her 7 year old daughter, Fern, 5 year old son, Rory, and oh-so-patient husband, Paul.

She is a complete studyaholic, having recently completed her Level 3 Diploma in Yoga Teacher Training in sunny Braunton, Devon, and now embarking on Prenatal & Postnatal qualifications in Spring 2019. If she ever had some spare time she would probably go to a spa for several few weeks, and probably drink prosecco in a dressing gown ;0)
