WELCOME TO JOYFUL, EMPOWERING, INCLUSIVE FITNESS CLASSES FOR ALL BODIES.
I teach online and in-person from my private studio in Hanham, Bristol.
My classes are a safe space, free from diet culture.
I’m Carly and I love helping people realise that movement can feel MAGIC! After a life long hatred of exercise, I stripped it all back, and in my early 30s, I started doing fitness with the sole intention of feeling joyful in – and accepting of – my body.
Moving in this way lit a spark in me. It healed years of cruel school P.E. memories, and made me realise I really wanted to help others light their own spark of joyful movement. And so I jacked in my career, moved cities and trained as a fitness instructor!
ALL fitness levels, sizes, shapes, ages and abilities are SO welcome in my sessions! It’s just super important to me that you feel empowered to move in ways which feel good for YOUR body!
I teach online from my professional home studio, several times a week. Our community of little zoom boxes is so welcoming, sharing sweat and humour in a safe, judgement-free space. You can also expect my little son to be joining us from time to time. He’s excitable, nosy and loves dancing!
When you join me online, you can work as hard as you want to, and keep your camera off if you’re nervous. Join in every move… sway about… do something different to me because it’s what your body needs in that moment… stop for rest if you need… or hold your cat aloft and sing to it. Your body, your workout, your rules.
I teach private, in-person classes from my garden studio in Hanham, Bristol! I offer POST-NATAL “back to fitness” consultations and fitness classes. These can be for you alone, or you and a friend (and babies are welcome). I also offer PRIVATE FITNESS CLASSES classes for two friends.
In-person sessions are great if you’re nervous of the gym, want more dedicated attention than in a big gym class, or just want somewhere safe to workout which is 100% committed to being diet culture free. I love showing you that you can enjoy exercise and celebrate how your body looks, in ways which aren’t tainted by archaic, patriarchal, body-shaming bulls**t. Aaaaaaand I best leave that there before I start ranting 🙃
HOWEVER YOU CHOOSE TO JOIN ME, I CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW YOU HOW WONDERFUL IT FEELS TO MOVE WITH JOY AND ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR GLORIOUS, UNIQUE, CAPABLE BODY!
