Abigail Greenland - Dudley
I began my fitness career by working with vulnerable adults teaching all sports and activities that got them excited for exercise.

Here allowed me to gain a variety of experience working with people of all age and abilities and ultimately is where I found the desire to work with older adults. I am also a qualified fitness instructor and am excited to develop my knowledge and experience in this area of work striving to help all achieve a healthier lifestyle.
