Lucy taught her first classes, when she was in her late teens, for college students whilst dancing as a hobby at the Pineapple Studios in Covent Garden. However, she rejected a career in fitness, in favour of an artistic career and went on to become an animator and graphic designer for TV. It was only later in life that she finally came back to dance and fitness, qualified as a teacher and then as a Personal Trainer. She now runs her own successful business the Body Fitness Company.
Lucy is passionate about dance and fitness and believes strongly that it should be accessible to everyone.
- Lucy's tips
* Don’t spend hours in the gym working half-heartedly; work for shorter periods but at a higher intensity.
* Every morning do 25 press-ups, 50 curls, 50 reverse curls and 60 oblique twists, whatever else happens that day, you will know you have done your abs!!!
* Avoid all white flour foods.

Lucy is here with her team of over 40s to show you just how easy it is to get inspired and get exercise into your life as we reach a critical age.
However, fitness is only part of what we need you to do, the best way to prevent rising levels of fat in the body is by being vigilant about both diet and physical activity levels.
We all want to feel healthy and trim, but no-one wants to deprive themselves of all the things they love drinking, eating and doing. In fact, cutting out the things we love often means we don't keep up the changes we make for very long - so any good work we do is easily undone later on. One of the best ways to be healthy is to make some swaps and build them into your life for the long term. The more you do, the better you'll feel - and you won't have to say 'no' to everything.
