We are extremely grateful that Mel is here to give us such great classes as only a few years ago Mel was in a near fatal motorcycle accident . It is a rather sober thought but, she was told by her Doctors, that no one had ever survived from the injuries she incurred. Her fitness meant she recovered in three months which we all agree is an incredible and inspiring testimony to the saying “fitness for life”.
Mel is a fighter and she works hard at what she loves doing in and around London based clubs and leisure centres. “I have always had a belief and a strong passion for exercise. I believe that if you are physically strong then it can help your mental state and give you mental ammunition to deal with life.”
Mel used to live in Gambia where she owned her own gym which was very successful. She came back to London several years ago to peruse a freelance career and is a popular and sought after teacher.
“The beauty of being able to help and see others transform their bodies as well as their lives through exercise is what really motivates me.”

* Your metabolic rate is highest in the morning. If you have breakfast your 4 x less likely to be overweight than someone who doesn’t eat breakfast.
* Weight bearing exercises strengthens your bones which can help prevent osteoporosis.
