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 5 of the extremely popular Introduction to Fitness online workout videos.
Week 5 is also 50 mins long (like week 4), but the fitness intensity level of the workout has been upped as your cardio vascular system will now be able to cope with a slightly higher demand. In this exercise class last weeks routine becomes this weeks warm up, a very simple new routine is taught using hand weights and you continue with press-ups, back and abdominal work to continue to develop strength and stamina.
This now starts to feel like you are working out and you will be able to monitor how you are fairing by comparing the level of activity in session one to the level of activity in session five. Lucy still wants you to try and do this five times a week before progressing on to level 6 the final workout of the course.
