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 continues with session 4 of the extremely popular Introduction to Fitness online workout video. Week 4 sees us continue to extend the duration of exercise from 38 mins in session 3, all the way up to 50 mins session 4.
This still ideally needs to be done five times a week allowing for stamina to really begin to increase and absorption of information to take place. In this session Lucy uses the combinations developed in session three and progresses them a little bit.
She also demonstrates a range of simple exercises using hand weights and talks about the general reasons these may be taught and combined into sessions, so that you begin to feel comfortable with different exercise strategies. In the session we progress from a 1/2 box press-up to a full box press up.
