We are a husband and wife team who have between us over 18 years experience in the fitness industry. We are passionate about fitness and pride ourselves on making our classes fun, varied and effective.
“We are passionate about fitness and helping people achieve their goals. We have worked in the fitness industry since 2004 and feel proud of the way we have contributed in transforming people’s lives, not only in the way they look but also in the way they feel about themselves. Fitness is such an important part of our lives and being able to pass on the skills that we have learned to others in a fun but effective way is very rewarding.”
Having graduated from Loughborough university I qualified as a Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor and Sports Massage Therapist with Premier international. I began my career working in health clubs in the UK followed by France. Having gained a vast amount of experience working for clubs I then embarked on developing my own Mobile Personal Training business. I enjoy training to keep fit, in particular using Kettlebells and doing bodyweight exercises. I am also a qualified Kitesurf Instructor and when I can like to spend time on the water.
After a successful career as a Lettings Manager in London I took a career change, re trained and qualified as a PT and fitness instructor with The Training Rooms and too began my career in health clubs. After we married and relocated to the countryside Phil and I joined forces and created Soames Personal Training. I enjoy training people and helping them achieve their goals. In the process I have made some great friends. When I am not being a mum I love to keep fit and particularly enjoy running. I recently completed the Hastings Half Marathon and I am always on the lookout for new challenges.
We have now relocated to the Algarve with our two children and Boxer dog having fallen in love with the beauty of Portugal and its way of life. Enjoying a warmer climate where we can maximise our love of the outdoors and all it has to offer. Setting up Soames Fitness we hope to emulate the success we had in the UK and grow our business further.
