blue cat fitness

 

Hi blue cats,


I'm Lesley-Anne AKA Mrs Blue Cat. I have been in the fitness industry for 20 +  years now and still LOVE my job, love helping people to get fitter and healthier, to have fun, socialise and meet their goals.

At 14 years old I was a 2nd dan black belt and used to help my karate instructor take classes and from then on I knew what i wanted to do. So when I left school I went to study applied science (sports science) with outdoor pursuits, this included sports, fitness testing, nutrition, biomachanics, nautical studies, etc. While studying I completed my fitness instructor course and worked part time in a local gym.

Since that great start into the fitness industy I have been lucky enough to work in some fabulous gyms, training all sorts of different people, different ages, different abilities and fitness level, which is why my job is so interesting and rewarding. I carried on with my fitness education through NVQs in sports and leisure, personal training, holistic massage, and GP referral consultant and many more.

After having my little girl I set up BLUE CAT FITNESS, which is now 10!  It has grown from just 2 classes per week to now offer personal training, massage and 8 classes per week, and I've added and extra child, who is now 8.

I am very lucky to work with such lovely blue cats and am still striving to keep learning and keep up to date with the latest trends and over the last year I have qualified as an AFFA group fitness instructor and a Penalty Box Fit instructor, completed my AFFA pratical pilatesTM course and I have become a NASM youth exercise specilist. 

I'm afraid you will never see me in a matching lycra set, with my nails done, fake eye lashes on and putting photos of myself doing gym poses but I will try my best to find a fitness class that you will enjoy and get you great results. I truly believe fitness has a big role to play in eveyone's lives and I'm here and ready to help.


hope to see you soon,

Lesley-Anne x

Here are what some of our blue cats have to say:

" straight forward, no nonsense fitness class with great music! Lesley-Anne makes you push yourself in the nicest possible way whilst having fun at the same time." Laura.

" I love Sunday night circuits, I really miss it when I can't go. I feel it sets me up for the coming week ahead and gets rid of the stress of the week before. It's a fab, friendly class with lovely people and you get fit while having fun." Sarah S

"coming to blue cat fitness was an absolute savior for me as a new mum. I had moved to the area when I was pregnant and it was difficult to find activities that I enjoyed as a mum and were also good for my little one. My little one was happy in the classes and I had fun and made new friends. The exercise boosted my mood and gave me more self confidence in myself and my body. Now my little one is bigger I enjoy the freedom of the evening classes. The support and encouragement from Lesley-Anne is fantastic and adapts the classes for all abilities" Naomi.
