Great news! Gemma Pearce Fitness is expanding - in more ways than one! We're now a team of 6 and I'd like to introduce them all to you!
Tina is a fitness instructor with 17 years of experience of teaching a wide range of classes. In her spare time, Tina bakes elaborate celebration cakes and is a marathon runner with a PB of 3:09 which she hopes to beat at the Abingdon Marathon this year. From September, Tina will be teaching Legs Bums & Tums and Gold Aerobics on a Monday morning and Body Blitz and Fitness Pilates on a Friday lunchtime.
Jasmine is our Clubbercise nut - she just can't get enough of it! She's already teaching the Didcot and Drayton classes and will be taking on the Steventon class too in September. Although she's a newly qualified instructor, Jasmine was previously a TV and theatre make up artist on X Factor and says that nothing could be as stressful as that!
Busy Police Officer and Mum of 3 under 5s, Claire is going from 'front row geek' to leading the Wednesday evening Zumba class! I knew Claire would make the Zumba instructor if she could find time in her busy life! Luckily for us, she agreed! When your love of Zumba extends to an obsession with crazy leggings, it makes perfect sense!
A professionally trained dancer, Abbie has been teaching Super Saturday Calorie Burner mornings for almost a year. She lives and breathes fitness and is the perfect instructor for our hardcore fitness mornings! However, she's been described as the 'charming assassin' - her classes are sure to leave you smiling... and feeling it the next day! You can attend her next session on 16th September.
Nikki has been coming to my fitness classes for nearly 6 years and has been helping me behind the scenes for quite a while now with course renewals and payment admin - so everyone gets to the correct Pilates classes! She loves Body Blitz and Clubbercise and you'll see her every Tuesday raving herself fit at Drayton Clubbercise!
You will have noticed by now that I've either eaten too many of Tina's cakes or I've got a bun in the oven of my own! Baby Pearce will be joining the team in October! Baby and I will be touring all of the classes in the autumn and I will still be at the end of an email and on social media during my maternity leave. I'm hoping to return to classes early in 2018.
Please join me in welcoming our new team members and keep enjoying your exercise!
