Continuing Education

As an Instructor it is important to keep upto date with your knowledge & to continually learn & grow within your teaching. In 2007 I was fortunate to be part of the YMCA Display Team that toured the UK & displayed at many fitness events it gave me a chance to see all the new research,techniques & ideas that were flooding the fitness market.

Some of the events where I was lucky to take part in in classes / seminars / lectures……

Fitpro – Loughborough University
Pure Energy Live Roadshows – Throughout out the UK
Fit Fantastic – Camber Sands
YMCA Fitness Weekender – Camber Sands
International Fitness Showcase (IFS) – Winter Gardens , Blackpool

Now my master classes tend to be more pole related. I have jotted down the continuing education I have received, you may recognise a couple of familiar faces 😀
