A big hello from the CoeActive Fitness Team, Hayley, Jayne, Chris, Lisa, Uta, JoJo, Karen, Sue and Sarah.
CoeActive Fitness launched in September 2018. Since then, we have grown our member base, team of instructor’s and range of classes. Offering weekly Zumba, STRONG Nation, Yoga, Circuit Training, Body Conditioning and online classes, we well and truly have you covered whether you are looking to improve your cardio, strength or mobility.
We believe that our social health is as important as our physical and mental health, which is why we host so many social events outside of classes.
We aim to be the best part of someones, day, week or year by facilitating growing friendships, improved health and uplifted moods.
HAYLEY- INSTRUCTOR AND BUSINESS OWNER
I suppose dance has always been something in my life. My Mum was a latin and ballroom dancer and I, (like most little spogs), started off in ballet and tap. I progressed into more Contemporary as I got older and eventually moved to London from Inverness to study Musical Theatre at Italia Conti. Zumba was a natural progression for me having started working in the Fitness industry and qualifying as a Personal Trainer in 2016 is what led me into opening strength based classes. Fitness is not a weight loss tool. It is a vehicle to drastically improve our overall health whether it be physical, mental or social.Therefor, CoeActive is a reflection of what I believe is best for my members, always has been, always will be.
Jayne is my right hand woman! She has been involved as a participant in my classes for over 10 years. An amazing achievement! When I launched CoeActive in 2018, she naturally progressed into a role that saw her being an integral part of CoeActive's growth and success. Jayne very quickly became a Zumba instructor and qualified in her level 2 gym instruction. She is bubbly, well loved and her choice of Zumba tracks are fresh, current, vibrant and always to absolute bangers! The CoeActive Clan call ger the Soca Queen for a reason;)
Our boy Chris is our STRONG Nation instructor and level 2 qualified gym instructor. Chris also started off as a participant many years ago and took his STRONG Nation training during the pandemic. He is hilarious, sassy, energetic and always wants the best out of our members who attend STRONG Nation.Prepare for a good laugh and relaxed vibes with Chris...but don't be mistaken, he will push you to reach your limits!
Lisa is one of our incredible Yoga instructors. She is also a Zumba instructor and has been an integral part of CoeActive Fitness for over 5 years.
Her Tuesday class follows a pattern each month, starting off with a challenging but fulfilling class and gradually throughout the month, will end with a restorative practice aimed at recharging your batteries ready for a new month. Lisa is a beautiful soul, has the most wonderful smile and I have always said that she has this aura, I can't quite put my finger on it. You will not want to miss her Yoga or Zumba classes!
Uta is our other incredible Yoga instructor. Uta has been with us for just under a year but her presence is so powerful, it feels like she has been with us for forever! Uta slotted into CoeActive Fitness like a glove, she really understood our ethos of community and effort to improving our members social health. Because of this, her teaching immediately resonated with the CoeActive culture and since joining us, our Yogi's have been spoilt with 2 amazing instructors, each with a unique but familiar style. Uta is compassionate, a great listener and definitely pushes our Yogi's to challenge themselves.
Our fire cracker Rosie is our wonderful cover instructor. When she is on the timetable, you are in for a high energy, laugh out loud class with her bouncy legs and infectious personality, you don't want to miss her class when she is timetabled!
- COMMUNITY MANAGER
JoJo is our kind and caring community manager with the most amazing smile and laugh! She light's up rooms with her presence and her love for Zumba started 10 years ago when she started attending my classes. You will often see JoJo up front with the instructors team teaching:) JoJo looks after our community by checking in with those with injuries or are having a tough time. Because CoeActive is not just about fitness, it's about the overall health of our members.
KAREN, SARAH & SUE
From left to right, Karen, Sarah and Sue are our Community Champions! Nominated by my team, our Community Champions are there to make newbies and current members alike feel welcome, comfortable and reassured. We know walking into a new environment can be scary and intimidating. Our aim is to remove this stigma by providing a safe environment where all abilities and ages are welcome. Karen, Sarah and Sue have all attended my classes for over 10 years and are integral parts of my business. Their commitment and loyalty like so many others is why CoeActive exists. I wanted to thank them by making them part of the CoeActive Team family.
