My name is Emma and I have worked as a secondary school teacher for 10 years. My degree is in Cell and Molecular Biology and I started off as a science teacher although in more recent years I have lead in both Dance and Drama.
My decision to start Fairview Fitness came about through researching the decline in general health and fitness of pupils as they leave school. Ex-pupils who are now engrossed in an office job and a heavy social life no longer represent the healthy versions of their younger selves. A further study, revealed that the pressure of life in the fast lane caused a decline in the time for exercise with this reaching a peak post forty where an excessive life style can lead to medical issues such as obesity, diabetes type II, heart disease, stress and lower back pain (to name but a few). It was also evident that The Gym was a dirty word and was found to be an intimidating environment despite the health benefits on offer.
Since general health and fitness has always been a firm interest of mine, I decided a change in career was on the horizon. After studying Personal Training and taking courses from Pre and Post Natal care, Level 3 GP referral and Level 4 Lower Back Pain, I decided that my fitness business would focus on ‘over forties fitness’ GP referrals and New Mums. My aim is to bring bespoke fitness to everyone in a non threatening enjoyable form and offer encouragement and support to my clients. I am a firm believer that exercise can come in many shapes and forms and can be a major tool in combating a number of diseases and to enhance a greater feeling of health and well being. I would like to help you start your journey on the way to becoming fitter and healthier.

Every Personal Trainer should be passionate about exercise and fitness and I am no different. However, I believe that my years as a teacher have given me the experience and adaptability to modify exercises and sessions to tailor different individuals and to have the ability to break down an explanation of a situation or exercise.
You have to be a people person to be a good teacher and the same goes for Personal Training. I take pride in my ability to interact professionally yet passionately with my clients in order that they achieve the best of themselves.
Finally my science degree, combined with my Personal Training qualifications gives me a thorough understanding of the body and how it works. It allows me to relate a client’s medical conditions to the task at hand and give a professional and knowledgeable approach to a client and their exercise session.
