We are thrilled Dee has joined us. She comes with a long list of credits not least of which is the recent success of her bikini diet which featured on GMTV last year to much acclaim. Dee has been in the Fitness Industry for 16 years and has the ability to be able to teach across ages and disciplines with incredible ease, this has placed her firmly as both a Celebrity Trainer/Presenter but also as a successful children’s dance teacher, at a more grass roots level.
For Dee the journey began as a youngster influenced by her actor father, who evoked in her a love of the stage, acting, dancing and singing. Dee followed the traditional route of qualifying as an exercise to music instructor and then training as a personal trainer. Her dance background has meant Dee can create stunning choreography, but in the flick of a switch, tone it down into a fun and manageable routine, which all levels can enjoy.
Eight years ago Dee decided to return to the source of her journey and began teaching children. In this way she is able to satisfy each area of her creativity, a desire to help children grow, a desire to help people generally in their fitness and at the top end, the fulfilment of presenting at conventions or on TV which is a personal high point for Dee.
As if Dee were not busy enough, this mother of two also find time to write a weekly column for Reveal, “this means understanding and being aware of leading industry trends and understanding what the woman in the street is all about.” . She is also a consultant for Nizels Health and Fitness based in Hildenborough Kent.
- What drives Dee?
I am driven by a job I love. I went into this industry to teach group classes which is still one of my favourite things. I want to give them the results they want, whether it is just a smile on their face, weight loss, take them away from their daily life or anything else! I will always want to learn and better myself for the whole of my career, you can never know enough and never practice enough!
- Why is fitness important to Dee?
It is important to me because not only of the short term benefits but also the long. I want to be able to reach out to people and children of all ages and show them not only how much fun it can be, but that anyone can do it and it is never too late.
