So who’s who and what do we do?
Here they are!
Our team is a fab mix of experience, age and beauty of course!!!
You are most likely to be welcomed into the club by our Wellbeing Champion; Courtney. She is our super apprentice and in the few months that she has been with us has grown and flourished. Most recently certifying as a Wellbeing Champion, Courtney will be bringing health promotion activities into the club and beyond.
The newest addition to the team is Helen. A Personal Trainer, nutritional therapist, group X instructor and self proclaimed Nutrition geek! We do love nutrition geeks! You will see Helen in classes but also out and about. She is our Wellbeing lead, promoting not just the physical and nutritional side of wellness but also the social side too! With regular member events and health events in the community too! Give her a cheesy high five if you see her out and about!
The longest serving team member is Megan, she joined the team way back in 2013 as an apprentice. Now a fully certified personal trainer, massage therapist, group X instructor, children fitness instructor and student physiotherapist we all love a class with Megs.
That then just leaves the founders of FitER to introduce you too!
Suzanne and Chris are a husband and wife team; who come fully loaded with 2 children and 2 dogs! Suzanne and Chris has a genuine passion to help people find happiness and joy physically, nutritionally, mentally and socially.
Chris is a former Royal Marine, who competed Nationally and Internationally in running and swimming. He has always had a love of fitness and after leaving the forces he qualified as a personal trainer and in many group X formats. He leads the vast majority of classes at FitER, adapting and adjusting the exercises to individual needs.
Suzanne takes geek to another level! In health and wellness she is qualified in nutrition, fitness, group X, Classical Pilates, Yoga, weight loss management, mindfulness, health coaching and EFT. Now she too is training with Megan at University to become a physiotherapist and qualifies as an acupuncturist soon! Whilst Suzanne may not be in club as much these days, you will most definitely feel her presence! She is responsible for the majority of the management and operations of the club, designs many of the class programmes and is heavily involved in the staff training and development of the team.
Together, the FitER team build a very special place! FitER is driven not by sweat, blood and tears but by compassion. You will find FitER a place “where everybody knows my name” and “they’re always glad you came” (go on admit it, you sang that). A place where you can enjoy a cuppa and a chat, get support, encouragement and you as an individual are valued.
But that’s not the whole team….
We also have the lovely FitER Girl and Walking for Health Volunteer Jane. Jane joined Chris and Suzanne on the Ramblers Associations walking for health leader training in 2018 and delivers health walks from the FitER health Club in Plympton.
Check out the FitER Health Club facebook page to find out when Jane will be taking the next walk.
