I took the plunge and became a full-time fitness instructor in 2011, leaving my career in publishing behind. I set up Gemma Pearce Fitness and can’t imagine doing anything else now.
My first love was dance. From my first stage appearance at the age of four, performing ‘Chick Chick Chicken’, I continued with ballet and tap into my teens. I moved into Salsa, Ballroom and Latin dance at university and competed in national competitions, eventually retiring at the ripe old age of 23!
I started teaching evening fitness classes on top of my publishing day job until I felt able to go it alone with what I truly loved. My teaching skills grew along with the wide variety of classes I taught.
2017 was a big year for Gemma Pearce Fitness as I welcomed my gorgeous baby Lucy into my life and had to adapt the business as a working mum. Growing a team of amazing, enthusiastic instructors has been wonderful. It’s meant that I can offer even more sessions around the area.
In my spare time (what’s that?), I love growing vegetables (me) and eating dirt (Lucy) at my allotment and I enjoy long walks in the country with my dog Bruno... and drinking Prosecco!
