About Me

Hi, I’m Donna
I am a qualified fitness instructor offering various dance based fitness classes.

Hi, I’m Donna and I have been an amateur dancer for over 30 years and I am a qualified Fitness Instructor too. I have a love of dance and moving to music and I want to share that passion with you all.

Having recently ‘retired’ from competitive dancing with my husband, we have been lucky to become Scottish O35 Senior Latin Champions in 2019, and when we represented Ireland we where ranked Senior number 1 and undefeated.

Dance is one of the easiest ways to get the endorphins going in your body without feeling you are working out, it also leaves you with that feel good factor after.

I offer a variety of classes from Chair based fitness, social Ballroom & Latin and fun dance Fitness classes. I also offer 121 and group lessons for weddings or even just for a private workout session to get yourself started.

My qualifications are Active IQ Level 2 ETM fitness instructor and qualified in all the strands of the fitness brand known as FitSteps. This includes FitSteps Original, FitSteps FAB, FitSteps Tone, and FitSteps Chair.

I am currently working towards my Level 3 Qualification to work with and support individuals who are living with Long-Term conditions. I want to be able to open up more opportunities for those that struggle to exercise but also who want to make a change but don’t know where to start. As an Arthritis sufferer I know only too well how difficult it can be to keep moving when you are living with pain every single day.

I am fully insured, hold Public Liability insurance and relevant PRS/PPL music licences. I also hold full PVG Disclosure to work with adults and children.
