We are thrilled to have Beth Watkins as a Presenter and Personal Trainer with us. Beth represents a true icon to fitness as she has worked hard to become a leading Personal Trainer and her depth of knowledge is incredibly inspiring. Beth is a natural teacher and believes that how one actually learns about how the body works, is through explaining as one teaches the bodies’ functions and limitations. When Beth was 10 she was diagnosed with lordosis which is a condition of the spine. In overcoming this she feels she has gained true experience in how to help others correct posture issues before they have a damaging effect.
Beth grew up on a farm and was very sporty at school so a career as a Fitness Professional seemed a natural development of her interests. However she reflects that her mother’s death at 13 has influenced her direction in fitness and in a way has made her seriously contemplate why health matters are so important. We feel this true dedication to health, the body and how to heal oneself comes through in Beth’s teachings and as she says “without good health we really have nothing.”
Beth has worked in many areas of fitness developing her portfolio and experience and it was a proud day indeed when the culmination of all her hard work, study and dreams resulted in the opening of her own studio called MindBodyHealth. Here Beth works extensively with clients using the corrective techniques to rehabilitate and develop her clients who range from the injured and elderly to the super fit and professional sports person.
- What drives Beth?
“I am an extremely ambitious and outgoing person who enjoys a challenge, so what drives me is my keenness to learn more and be the best I can be for my clients.”
- Why fitness is important to Beth?
“Fitness to me is the total fitness of a person, a combination of their mind health and their body health in harmony. When this combination is in balance one feels great and can really live at ones full potential.”
- Beth’s fitness tips
