Hi, my name is Angela and I'm a busy, working Mum, based Suffolk, UK.
When I started out in the world of work, I was a qualified Electronic Engineer, working for a company called Baxter Healthcare. Shortly after, I re-qualified and worked as an IT professional for 13 years for a company called TigerLogic. However, like so many women in my position, having children made me reassess my work/life balance and I decided that it was time for a career change. One that would be more flexible to fit in with my young and expanding family.
I had already qualified as a personal trainer in 2008, more because of my growing interest in health and fitness so the logical step was to turn my passion into my job. I had my first child, Jack in 2009, and my second child, Holly, in 2011. Over the past 9 years my interest and knowledge has evolved with me as I have gone from pregnancy, postnatal, pre-school to the school-run mum, sharing my experiences and skills with other busy mums.
I know how difficult it is to find the 'me' in 'time' when you are a busy, working mum. The pressure to always keep preparing healthy food for a hungry family, in a limited amount of time, let alone finding the time to exercise and look after your own well-being.
At Hope Fitness our exercise classes are so much more than just a plain old workout session.
Of course, this is the main goal but if you are looking for a good old gossip, a group therapy session, an activity for your baby or pre-schooler or just getting some fresh air with friends – then this is the place to be
“It feels like a coffee morning with friends”
The hour long classes currently run four times a week on Grange Farm in Kesgrave, providing an all over body workout with the added benefit of all of the above. The classes run outside whatever the weather and are suitable for all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels.
We also welcome mums and mums-to-be and even well-behaved dogs!
Freestyle Fitness Yoga is a fitness programme that incorporates deep stretch and yoga postures.
Every element of Freestyle Fitness Yoga is validated from a fitness perspective.
Anyone taking part in a Freestyle Fitness Yoga class can expect to increase their flexibility greatly in 8 weeks. You will learn how to identify the body’s stabilising muscles and use them effectively and efficiently to improve their posture and move with more confidence.
“It’s definitely a ‘proper’ workout, you know you’ve done exercise when the class finishes”
Jayne Nicholls created Freestyle Fitness Yoga in 2000 by carefully stripping the physical practice of the more esoteric elements that might put you off even trying your first class. Now 15 years old FFY is taught Nationwide by instructors who integrate traditional Yoga postures into the language of fitness with all the fun of group exercise.
