A very experienced teacher, Hannah was classically trained in 2009 and a class act! Hannah connects your body to mind with powerful inspirational routines, never the same twice. Her classes are fresh, upbeat and effective! When shes not teaching, she cares for young family with a little interior decorating thrown in!
I absolutely love teaching classes which have a cardio rush and muscle endurance push. They're an essential part of keeping healthy inside and out. I bring energy to every class to motivate clients to push themselves further to reach their fitness targets and improve their generous health. My training includes Group Fitness Instructor (Level 2), Barre Concept, Core Stability Cert. Team ICG Indoor Cycling with YMCA.
I qualified in 2010 as a Body Control Pilates teacher and have since trained to teach different population groups using various pilates equipment including barre. I enjoy teaching classical and contemporary pilates combining the two approaches to make for a challenging and dynamic class. I am drawn to the mind body connection and nutritional influences on performance spending my free time studying and learning. I'm a mum to two pre teen boys ensuring my life is never dull.
I am a big believer in the positive effects, both mental and physical, exercise can bring - it has certainly helped me maintain balance amidst the challenges of bringing up 3 girls! I love the buzz and freedom of road cycling, especially with others. I also run (or 'escape' as my husband would say!) regularly and have dabbled in triathlon. I have taught indoor cycling for over 4 years now and love it! Its great exercise for everyone - regardless of fitness level. You can work hard but at your own individual fitness level within the same sociable class! Whatever your reason for coming, whether it be increased fitness, weight loss or simply to have fun, I will motivate you with fantastic tunes and fun sessions! I am a qualified Spinning Instructor and Level 2 British Cycling coach.
With over fifteen years of experience, I am passionate about the mental & physical results a good spin class can achieve. For me, it's all about the music! I create varied playlists with a heavy beat to encourage and motivate you to push you outside your comfort zone. You can expect plenty of hills with high resistance. I aim for you to reach that natural high and leave you feeling uplifted.

Susan enjoys the combined benefits of Pilates and Indoor Cycling for mental and physical health. Indoor cycling really took her fitness to a new level, she enjoyed it so much that it inspired her to become an instructor. She enjoys teaching endurance and strength classes. Of course, it is all about the music, trendy remixes are often on the playlist with some retro and occasional show tunes. Susan has a thirteen-year-old daughter and believes in being a positive role model by exercising and making healthy food choices, this is particularly important given the challenges teen girls face these days. Susan works full time for a global technology corporation and enjoys the escape of teaching Indoor Cycling to reduce stress and meeting new people.
