ABOUT ME

Do what you love. 

Love what you do!

Wayne W. Dyer 

I began my group exercise and fitness journey back in 1996 by teaching aerobic and step classes (who remembers the Green Goddess!)

 

Several years later, due to a back injury, I had to take a long break. However, in 2016, finally finding the correct treatment, I began my determined journey back into the fitness industry. I fell in love with dance fitness, and at the age of 46, I felt that I had finally found myself in the right place! 


SOSA Dance Fitness became my passion. Learning and teaching authentic dance steps and body styling through fitness truly gave me the inspiration and motivation to become the person that I am today. I am not a trained dancer by profession, but I found it really didn't matter! I've had to learn to dance and in the process, I have learned so much more about myself!

 

If you love to dance then you will LOVE dance fitness. Anyone can dance and is a great way to just be you, regardless of age, shape, experience or ability. Whether you think you have two left feet or lack coordination.

 

My classes are designed to make you feel at ease, have fun, learn a new skill, and become part of a very special SOSA Dance Fitness family!

 

There is even a Seated option too! Making dance classes inclusive for everyone!

And my fitness background doesn't end there! I also specialise in functional fitness particularly for the marvelously maturing adult.

 

Functional fitness is designed to improve flexibility & mobility; core stability & posture; strength & balance, promoting relaxation, increasing overall health, well-being, and confidence.   

I am registered with Exercise Movement & Dance UK (The National Governing Body for Group Exercise) holding an Active IQ Award Level 2 in Exercise To Music and a YMCA Level 3 Award in Adapting Exercise for the Independently Active Older Adult.

I am a Pro Team Member and Ambassador for SOSA Dance Fitness & Seated SOSA Dance Fitness and hold Care Knowledge Certificates in Safeguarding Adults; Mental Health; Dementia and Learning Disability along with recent upgrades to First Aid; COVID-19 Awareness and Long COVID-19 Rehabilitation Awareness training. 

 

Some weekends, you will find me teaching adult dance workshops and I have been known to cater for hen and birthday dance parties. 

I believe that exercise should be fun and is for everyone, no matter what age or ability. Please take me with you on your journey and I will do all I can to help you achieve your goals and keep you smiling!

Love Mel
