Chloé Townsend - Colchester, Essex

Hi, I’m Chloé, qualified fitness instructor/Gym Instructor from Essex. I teach a wide variety of fitness classes in gyms and the community - my favourite classes to teach are anything dance/movement related. I also love teaching lower impact sessions too, like Aqua Aerobics and Stretch and Relaxation. I’ve completed my chair-based exercise course and can’t wait to bring my fun energy and positive personality too the care homes.

I teach all ages, sizes and abilities and I am really looking forward to working closer with people living in care settings.

Sarah Tonkin - Chelmsford, Essex

Hi I'm Sarah, I am a qualified fitness instructor, personal trainer and chair based exercise instructor.  

I have recently been working as a fitness instructor leading circuit classes on the gym floor. It was here that I realised my passion was for group fitness and that I found working with special populations particularly rewarding.

I spent many years working as a carer.  I know first-hand from my previous experience how exercise can truly benefit people of all ages and that there should be no barriers to individuals receiving a quality exercise program. 

I am a huge advocate for “functional exercises” that can be transferred into activities of daily living such as being able to lift up your leg to put your trousers on, getting out of a bath or even wringing out a cloth.  

When at home I love to cook, attempt to grow vegetables and enjoy a good boxset on the telly!

Andrea Stewart - West Essex

I’m Andrea. I’ve been in the health and fitness industry for 28 years. I’ve taught in various disciplines from high impact Jane Fonda style, to the now holistic calm way of life. My passion throughout has always been special populations with Mature Movers being my favourite.  I love the interaction and response from teaching older adults.  The difference from the start to the end of a class is so rewarding.  Their smiles say it all and every session I get to experience something new. Gfitness have given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and teaching skills in the environment I love.

Joe Smith - Norfolk

Hi I’m Joe, My fitness journey began back in 2011 when I qualified as a level 3 personal trainer. I’ve since become qualified as a level 4 strength and conditioning coach and I’ve gained a qualification as a senior fitness specialist.

I found my passion for training the older population when I was working in the commercial gyms, as I found it much more interesting and therefore much more rewarding. I’m a mad sports fan and took part in a number of sports such as football, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and cross country running to name a few.
